In the spirit of @MisfitCMJ’s “A DC Comic Cover A Day!” thread in the Comic Books section, I thought it’d be fun for folks to post pics of assorted DC action figures, statues, busts and the like each day (or whenever you want, really). One or ten, post a picture of whatever snazzy schtuff floats your boat.
I’m quite chivalrous, so I’ll let the lady go first. From Hasbro’s JLA line (and eBay for the photo), Wonder Woman.
Ah…DC Direct and your wonderfully sculpted, comic book accurate figures…how I miss thee! They continued that trend when they changed their name to DC Collectibles with the Designer Series action figure line, which seems like its been discontinued. Here’s a taste: a couple of Lee Bermejo designed figures that I am very fond of (image cropped from an overall picture of one of my shelves).
Dang. There’s zipper details on her boots… sweet! No…that’s not the first thing a dude notices when looking at Power Girl, but gotta keep it PG! It is pretty cool that they paid that much attention to detail though
Holiday discount, 7 for the price of 1. Love this little retro section in my cabinet. On display are the only surviving Super Powers figures in my collection (the rest were sold). And behind those are the Super Friends DC Direct figures for the Trinity (had the whole set, but also sold the rest). This is nostalgia at its best .
And in front of the previous sets is a continuation of the retro theme with DC Direct’s First Appearance figures of, again you guessed it, The Trinity (this will be a recurring theme for my stuff, sorry!). Love the cloth goods portions of the costumes.
Regarding the Power Slingers waves of the Justice League movie line, there’s also a second series that features variants of Superman, Wonder Woman (with a net!), The Flash, Batman and two variants of Cyborg, with the below being the best of the two:
The first wave of Powers Slingers showed up at Target and then eventually Five Below. I’d sure like to see the second wave show up there, as the above Cyborg figure is all I’ve been able to find from it out in the wild.
2007 Wonder Woman figure from DC Direct. Known by many as the “Terry Dodson” Wonder Woman (his art is on the cardback), it’s on many reviewers top 5 best Wonder Woman figures ever. While I’m not really a “best ever” type of guy, this is one of my favorites.
