Will we ever see DC Minimates. No plans right now but you never know. They have ones made that were never released. They may show some pictures of those at some point online to see how much interest in them there might be.
A Shazam and Bizarro exclusive Lego figure are being given-away at comic-con this weekend.
The 3.75" Green Lantern figures shown at the booth are being shown to see how much interest there is in a line. They've talked about doing Batman ones next maybe even with a Batcave playset.
6" scale isn't going away because of the 3.75"
Products based on Earth 2 series are in the works.
No plans for Young Justice figures from DCC. Fan who asked the question wasn't happy with the Mattel line.
The 3.75" figures if they sell out this weekend, they will go forward. These exclusives are being used to test the market.
No plans for Watchman Comic based figures more.
They explored doing something for the collectible world for Lego based stuff but because of price it was something they felt they couldn't pursue. Look for DCC stuff based on Injustice video game next year.
Look for a badass Superman statue with something like an angry expression shooting lasers out of his eyes.
