Man, I'd kill for the modern Tornado and the Penguin Bot they were supposed to sell with Penguin, too. Them skimping out on that pack-in with the first wave should have been a sign of trouble ahead.

That's a great point guys. I won't hold my breath but that would be cool if Doomsday is a sign of future possibilities.

Hah! I didn't blame them too much, because that wave was full of heavy tooling, most of which couldn't be reused - Etrigan, Penguin, and Metamorpho all required a lot of work, and even Orion had a pretty major accessory. Looking back, they probably should've replaced Penguin with a DCSH re-release of one of the rarer figures - maybe an improved Catwoman?

Yeah, I'm not expecting much. It all depends on whether or not they think they can drag more money out of us. Even if it's fairly easy repaints/retools, I'd still be interested in some additional figures. But until then, there's always customs.

Collector mentality, my friend! :smwink:

Is there anyone who really wants Hal Jordler? .


Honestly, he is the only one I am even tempted to spend money on. If he was $20 I would pull the trigger for sure. Mxysptlk looked promising as a pack -in, but $30? No. The rest are just versions of Supes, Bats, and Wonder Woman. I know the vast majority have voiced their disgust at Hal Jordler, but I do think it is kinda fun.

Ah, I get ya. It's a clever idea, granted, and fun in the same way that something like seeing Matt Trakker from M.A.S.K. in the G.I. Joe line was fun. It's just so esoteric, and coming at the tail end of a series that was so immersed in Super Powers homage anyway, it's a little galling. I'd probably like it more if we hadn't dealt with guys like Cyclotron and Golden Pharaoh clogging up waves.
