I gotta say I've been loving this line since 2009 and have been both buying these for the various kids as well as collect them myself. Fisher-Price has impressed me with how they listen to the fans and I love the selection seen thus far. These reminds me of the Super Powers a bit.

My vote for new figs down the road-

Heroes:

Nightwing
Firestorm
Shazam
The Atom (miniature figurine accessory)
Wonder Twins (nostalgia would make it a must have for many)

Would be nice but not holding breath:

Captain Atom
Dr. Fate
Black Lightning
Steel

Villains:

Solomon Grundy
Deathstroke
Sinestro
Man-Bat
Gentleman Ghost
Black Adam

Would be nice but not holding breath:

Cheetah
Toyman
Giganta
Atrocitus
Doomsday

Oh and I agree a Hall of Justice and Hall of Doom would be devoured by me and I'm sure many others like no other playset.

Man, when I started this thread way back when I had no idea of the following the line would generate.

Thank you to the Imaginext team for keeping us all hooked and for all the wonderful reveals this week.

Viva Imaginext!

.... And YES! I would absolutely love a new Hall of Justice play set and maybe a nice Daily Planet building when the next Movie comes out :wink:

Just stepping up to say I've been a lurker these past few months and finally joined AFI last month. I love the Imaginext DC line, and even some of the other Imaginext stuff is started to grab my attention. Great thread so far to date, really the best place to follow the Imaginest DC Heroes goings on.

I wanted to post about customizing mentioned a few pages back. I figured I'd wait till I had some pics for reference.

As for how to get the Imaginext guys apart, I do use the boil method. I never seem to get the 'pop' however. I've boiled 25th G.I.Joes and they've come apart pretty easily, Imaginext don't work with me as well. But it's still my best option.

The secret is really letting the hot water soften and or melt the glue holding the back and front body pieces together. Without that glue/joined plastic being softened and loose you will not get these guys apart in a useable way.

The following was my first attempt to disassemble a figure:
Image

The pegs inside the body cracked. The glue/plastic never softened and the plastic just gave way when working it apart. The legs, arms and head were ok, but I needed the body too, so this attempt was a failure.

This was my next try, and it went better, and is useable, but not perfect. The parts all came apart okay, but one of the pegs snapped and stayed lodged in the body. With at least 1 peg still okay, I was still able to get the finished figure back together again. Even with both pegs broken you can still seal the body together with glue, however it's better and stronger to glue the pegs back into the peg holes.

Image

My third try was perfect, all limbs came away fine and the body had two undamaged pegs, but this was Aquaman, and I only needed the head this time. It would of course figure that when I didn't need the body it would come out undamaged.

Image

Now I use the same method for the girls as I do the guys, but it's even harder.Because the space in the girls bodies is smaller and more compact, the glued areas are closer and there's less space to work it apart.

Image

You can see that the limbs came apart fine, but the body isn't really usable without a lot of sanding and repair. I had taken a Catwoman apart and she came out perfect, but Harley was another story. Thankfully I didn't need the body from the figure.

Overall, use a double boiler to heat your figure. I even place a rag at the bottom of the pot containing the figure to keep it from touching the metal pot. Then boil, boil and boil a little more, and test the figure throughout. Don't tug the joints too much as they are a softer plastic than the body. Use a blade/X-acto to loose the body but try not to cut the body. It's a delicate line to walk, and be sure to not apply any real pressure. And of course wear safety gloves and even goggles. No cut or injury is worth it. It works about 50/50, but with Imaginext, you ALWAYS have extras of something, so if the 1st try is a failure, try again.

THANK YOU.....I've been wanting to learn on how to take apart ImagiNext figures. This was very informational and it opens up a lot more CUSTOM options.

I wish I had this info prior to Metallo

(I would had made him a little differently)

Thanks again for the info !!!

Oh, that's a good one. I hadn't thought of that. That would be an ideal spot for a Clark-to-Superman.

What about a cool Imaginext action figure carrying case? I loved those in the past maybe a hall of justice styled carrying case. My kids resort to clear tackle boxes or lunch boxes :( any of you guys remember the vintage superpowers carrying case? I was tempted to buy one on ebay to use but the Inaginext are too small and it wouldnt work right.

All these cool amazing figures and no practical way of traveling with them to show off/trade with friends.

I'd like to see some smaller vehicles like the rescue city sets have. They are easy for kids to get the figures into and clean up easily. My son has two criteria easy to play with or holds a lot of figures. He loves the justice league javelin for the figure capacity.

I'd love the daily planet. That would be great.

Imaginext should do an alter ego set. It would be nice to see a few more characters get done like Bruce Wayne. They have bodies to use such as the spy guy from the blind bags.

Customized questions: anyone tried separating green arrows bow so he could have a single bow to hold? Anyone try increasing the luthor suit's arms range of motion?

Bruce Wayne is already out there. He comes with the TRU Gotham City set.

got him, thanks. I meant "as in the same way"

So it would be nice to see some more characters similar to Bruce Wayne. Number one on the list would be Clark Kent. Hal Jordan as a pilot would be pretty cool too.

:( I hope they show up much earlier. Unless their is more product on the way, it won't be as expensive as this summer was.
Batmobile $24
Beetle mobile $24
Ivy and scarecrow $7
Plastic man and Martian $7
Bat cycle $7

Total $69 x 2 (one set to play with and a set to collect) = $138

Plus 8 blind bag figures at $4 equals = $32 for a total of $170.

That is without any sales like the bogo 1/2 price sale. $123.50.... I believe with a bogo 1/2 sale.

....and that is if I buy two of each dc set. I don't know if I will buy two blue beetle mobiles or bat mobiles.
