...except, if you notice, the IH line is completely modern in scope. All the characters are being done in their current looks. So, if we see any Legion members (and I hope we do, and soon!) they would most like be in whatever costumes they are wearing in the current book.

But the Canary figure that was shown at Toy Fair was her classic costume -- has she gone back to that in the books?

She may have a jacket and fishnets, but Black Canary is NOT in her classic togs in the comics right now as depicted on the Infinite Heroes prototype.

So is anyone buying the DK Batman Street Coup to use with this line? Jeff, you have it (I think) - is it worth it?

Eh.

I don't know of any DC characters who'd be tooling about in a Lamborghini, so it doesn't really work in that sense. And with repainting and customizing it doesn't work as a Batmobile.

I like it. It's a fun little toy in it's own right, but I'm not planning on using it with DCU:IH...

Jeff

The Lamborgini might not work.

But the upcoming Batbunker expandable playset might be good to get just so you can have a batcave for the DCIH figures.

Here's what I'd really love to see in this line:

Vehicles and Playsets!

One of the coolest things about the DC universe is that it's huge. It's infinite. Just like the name of this line. :wink:

Think about the playset and diorama ideas: The Batcave. The Fortress of Solitude. Themyscira. Atlantis. Gorilla City. The Planet Oa. Titans Tower. The JLA Watchtower. Dinosaur Island. The Flash Museum. Arkham Aslyum. Belle Reve. The House of Mystery. The House of Secrets. Lexcorp. S.T.A.R. Labs. Warworld. Fawcett City. Nanda Parbat. Sub Diego. Blackhawk Island. Smallville. Bizarro World. Kandor. Mount Olympus. Skartaris. Apokolips. New Genesis. The Source Wall. That's just scratching the surface.

Then there's the vehicle possibilities. The Whirly-Bat. A Legion time bubble. The Arrow Car. The Invisible Plane. A Cosmic Treadmill. Hawkman's Thanagarian space cruiser. The Haunted Tank.

A smaller scale and a lower price point means vehicles and playsets are a real possibility. Mattel has the DC Universe now and the sky's the limit. There's so much more to the DCU then just Gotham and Metropolis. I hope they go nuts and explore different cities, different worlds and even different eras. From the beginning of time to the 30th century, from Atlantis to Apokolips, from the JSA's brownstone headquarters to the JLA's gleaming watchtower, it's all there and begging to be made.

Mike
(C'mon, Mattel! We DC fans have been waiting for something like this for a long, long time! Deliver the goods!)


More playset ideas:

The Trylon and Perisphere, actual structures built in New York City for the 1939 New York World's Fair and the headquarters of the All-Star Squadron:

Image

The Silver Age Legion clubhouse:

Image

Image

Or the Bronze Age. I ain't that particular.

Image

Dr. Fate's Tower in Salem, Massachusetts:

Image

The Birds of Prey Clock Tower:

Image

For vehicles, the Blue Beetle's Bug:

Image

Mike
(Endless. The possibilities are endless.)
