Is their a forum/thread/place to discuss this line?
Or all the figurestoyco. retro Mego lines?
Better place for it? If there is pleas move.

These are amazing, At last!!!
Gathered together from the cosmic reaches of the retro-universe!
I'm really looking forward to this line!

Just a hint, Zan's collar is way to big (even for the 70s), Samurai’s tunic is way to open, probably because the Mego bodies are naturally thinner than the Toth designs, close it up a bit, taper towards the bottom...

And Superman's grin is not working.

Wow! I hope this great illustration is an indication of the line-up they hope to assemble.
Amazing!

Not shown in the Hall of Justice illustration above^
Consider Rima! Green Arrow, Atom, Hawk Girl & Plastic-Man all had Super Friend cameos and Alex Toth designed model sheets.

And Legion of Doom too!!

For Grodd and Grundy I hope they please consider a new body, that tiny ("charming") Mego Hulk body is not cutting it. :wink:

I don't know that I would count on that full line-up for either group. I will give FTC credit for making some neat retro-figures but it seems like they start spinning their wheels after the second wave and start a new line with the same bunch of characters all over again with a new cardback or a slightly different outfit. It's good to see three new characters in the first wave but maybe they should've picked someone besides Superman for the fourth slot. There are so many DC characters that they've shown on cardbacks for years that still don't exist like Green Lantern and Flash.

MOD: ...and I moved this to General Toy Talk because they are retro but not really vintage.

Other good news is that there is a Gleek coming...

So for those that weren't able to get one for their DCUC figures a few years ago, this FTC figure might be a workable alternative to be used with them.

Could this be a stronger setup if they had done a more specific Challenge of the Super Friends style line?
With VS. themed Two-Packs?
Similar to a line DCD had going? (although that didn't get very far either)

Superman------Lex Luthor
Wonder Woman------Cheetah
Batman------The Riddler
Robin------ Scarecrow
Aquaman------Black Manta
The Flash------Captain Cold
Green Lantern------Sinestro
Hawkman------Solomon Grundy
Black Vulcan------Toyman
Apache Chief--(12" figures)--Giganta
Samurai------Bizarro
El Dorado------Brainiac
Rima------Gorilla Grodd

Zan----(Gleek)----Jayna
Wendy---(Wonderdog)---Marvin

Guest stars:
Green Arrow ----Plastic-Man
Hawkgirl --- Atom
