A DCAU Batman Who Laughs figure was announced today
That name sounds like a paradox almost. Guessing that a recently new character in the comics. Guess DC Collectibles is going full blast with this line of reinterpreting new characters into the Timm style.

But seems like someone at a con should ask and record Conroy doing a take on Hamill's Joker laugh then splice it with a gif of this figure or something.

Yupp, he debuted during Dark Knight's Metal in 2017 I believe? It's kinda wild he's getting a BTAS style figure so quickly, but they've been pushing him hard between that event, the JL book, his own solo book, and the current Year of the Villain event seems to be using him too (I'm a month or so behind so I'm foggy on that)

Would absolutely love hearing a Conroy/Hammil hybrid voice for him

I miss the Mattel sized figures. Yeah the articulation and sculpting on some sucked... but it was cheaper and easier to display or collect them. Plus I feel DC Collectibles could have ran with the size and still could have included more articulation... if GI Joe and Star Wars figures could... why not 5” JLU figures?
Let’s be honest, the JL figures that came out last year were terrible in sculpt compared to DC Directs original 5” sculpts and the 9” Marquette’s... and the articulation was off compared to their BTAS and TNBA figures.
This is all still cool though, I just miss seeing DCAU figures in regular stores.

It’s too bad that the DC Collectible’s figures were such a let down. I thought many of them looked good in some respects but I think only Aquaman, Superman, and J’onn were pretty darn accurate. It was cool they also did a season one design of Superman as well. *Yes I know I’m the only one 18 years later. :lol::lol::lol:
but even then I still think the figures DC Direct sculpted for Mattel (by shrinking down the Maquette’s)... look much better. Plus I like the size and slightly better aesthetics (but that’s just me.)

Today, variety in my country's Cartoon Network's schedule has died.
I'm Planning to make a New Qubo schedule With Several New and Returning Shows (With one of them being Jacob Two-Two), No Paid Programming and the Return of the 4 hour Marathons.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
