For me...

1. Volcana
2. Obsidian/Vigilante
3. Barda/Deadshot
4. Stargirl/Parasite (but I have them)
5. Hawkman

Hal Jordan doesn't count to me due to the fact that he was never released to the public. But I can see why he would count to alot of people and why it matters so much. It is annoying to not have him released to us. If there is a mold and money to be made why not do it? :?

Probably because there *isn't* a mold for that figure...

Peace,

Here in the Philippines its:

Blue Devil
Fire
Ice
Mr. Miracle
Volcana
Parasite
Star Sapphire
Stargirl
Joker
Hawkman
Obsidian
Vigilante
The Ray
Shayera
Doomsday
Grodd
Sand
Demon

None of which have EVER appeared on retail save for a few on the secondary market.

The last wave we got was the Shade/Dr.Light wave. Nothing else since then. The last three packs were the Lightray set. So for all of 1997, we only received one new wave on retail.

Mattel claims that the molds were destroyed. I think before the Mattel DC license is over (I think it's over in 2012), I think they'll make one for us. For now, we wait.

The Hal Jordan mold was not like the rest of the normal molds. It wasn't made for massive production. Mattel has said that it was trashed after the very limited run of 100 Hals.

As far as the rarest of the rare, I'd rate it like this
1. Volcana
2. Stargirl/Parasite
3. Battle Suit Lex Luthor
4. Obsidian
5. Grundy
