Justice League Unlimited
We’re now one more character closer to the Super Powers line
At long last we have Hawkman in the JLU line. Hawkman is an interesting one as he’s been on the list as a possible figure and then was off the "can make" list for awhile. But Mattel kept asking and now we are one figure closer to having all of the Super Powers characters in the animated style from Mattel. With the release of the Joker and Hawkman in this wave (and using John Stewart for Green Lantern and forgetting the Hal debate) we are only missing the Penguin from the original 12 figures in the first wave of Super Powers figures. If you’re not a stickler for scale Hasbro made 2 versions of the animated Penguin in their B:TAS lines.
According to Mattel this wave should be hitting stores around July 26th, just about the time of Comic Con.
Hawkman uses the same body as winged Amazo with a new head and a new paint job, so with his wings and his helmet he appears quite large.
The rest of the 3-pack consists of the Justice Lords Flash. However on the new package he is labled as "Alt. The Flash." Rounding out the 3-pack is Rocket Red.
And since this is a 3-pack that means that there are no weapons or accessories. Rocket Red does not have his rocket or shoulder mounted launcher from the single pack, and Hawkman has no weapons. However if you happen to have a spare Hawkgirl mace around he’d look something like this..
But I’m sure what everyone is wondering is how does he look next to his "beloved" Hawkgirl.
I experimented a bit with the armored wings from a previous release of Hawkgirl to see if they would fit on Hawkman so that if Hawkman was ever released as a single figure we could cobble together some Thanagarian warriors. The wings are not an exact fit, you can draw your own conclusions.
And finally let’s take a look at him with all the rest of the JLU figures.
A big "Thank you" to Mattel for being able to take a pre-Comic Con closer look at this upcoming 3-pack.
