I wonder if this is in-addition-to or instead-of Mattel. I can't imagine Mattel letting that license get away, but based on how the DC Multiverse figures seem to be doing, DC can't be happy. They can't even get rid of them for $5 in the clearance isle.

"Starting in 2020, McFarlane Toys will begin releasing 6"-12" ultra-posable action figures based on characters from DC's stable of characters"

I'll be curious what "ultra-posable" means to McFarlane toys. When most of their figures are 3 PoA, it's tough to imagine them going full-Revoltech-level articulation all of a sudden. While I'm not particularly optimistic, I'm glad there's a bit of a shakeup. DC has been wallowing in action figure mediocrity for several decades. Even if they suck, McFarlane couldn't do any worse than Mattel.

Spin Master has the license, now. Mattel is out.
I'd like to say the McDC stuff is going to be like the Fortnite figures, but I think those are an outlier.

Spin Master, the people that make Paw Patrol and Hatchimals, has the main DC figure license?! When was the last time they produced a real action figure?! Have they ever? And they're ok with McFarlane making figures sold in the same retail stores? This all feels really random.

6", ultra poseable, McFarlane. Sounds, uhhh, quite pricey.

And what does "6"-12"" mean? That they'll be making 6 and 12 inch lines or that this one line will fall somewhere in between in typical McFarlane all-on-it's-own style and fit in with nothing?
