Has there been any updates in info regarding the Imaginext DC Heroes of Gotham, Wonder Woman and Super Heroines sets being released in the U.S.?

Image

With Toys R Us going away, I'm guessing my chances of getting the Heroes set with Captain Atom have become pretty bleak. But last word from FP customer service was that the other 2 sets were already in the pipeline. That said, FP customer service is basically crap. The story rings very similar to the Firestorm/Sinestro/Cheetah fiasco.

I'm pretty much done collecting Imaginext full scale, I've just spent too much money trying to obtain new stuff as well as all the stuff I had originally missed out on. There just a few things I want now, but Captain Atom is high on my list of characters I've always wanted out of this series.

I picked up the Cap set on eBay. Paid too much, but considering we got a vintage Robin and Batgirl, along with the exclusive Cap Atom, I decided to go for it. Aside from a loose joint on Batman, I’m happy with the set.

I’m hoping the other two sets end up going to Walmart/Target/Walgreens or that the FP shop site becomes a bit more robust and makes them available there.

WW and Cheetah have been released as a 2 pack and Steve has his own set. No sign of Donna or Artemis or the second set of figures.

I found the Green Lantern/Mongul set at TRU this weekend. It was the only one left there. It's cool and all, but you know what I really like? The Black Mercy. That is a first-class accessory. I just wish they'd put some Starros that wrap around heads in a set.

They did Starro for DCIH and for DCUC. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before we get them in an Imaginext set

I found 2 Swamp Things and seen Steppenwolf I got both Swamp Things.

Anyone need the Batmen?

Anyone that does customs ever try to dye the figures?

Do the hard plastic joints take the dye?

I'm not entirely sure why Wonder Woman needs a warrior suit but it's currently a very good price on Amazon right now.

The same as they reused the police exo-suit from the space line as a Superman exo-suit. But at least with Superman you can say he needed it to protect him from Kryptonite. 8)

With Wonder Woman, it really just falls under the heading of pointless accessory. Though I have ordered it.

Yes. I dyed a lot of figures for customs. I used Rit fabric dye and basically immersed them in hot water and dye and leave them there for a while (the longer you do the darker it gets). It works into the joints more deeply than paint and is less likely to rub off. Of course, you're better off dying lighter-colored figures into darker colors. The harder plastic doesn't take the dye as well, though it does color it. One thing I would do is touch up those areas with indelible Sharpie markers (available in a bunch of colors). Let the Sharpie dry thoroughly before you move the joint. For the most part, dye works pretty well, again, as long as you're making a lighter figure darker. I still buy any of the clear "invisible" Amazo figures from JLU for that reason -- they're easy to dye different colors. I've also painted over dye sometimes -- I just let the dye handle the color of the joints, and paint on surfaces that don't have "wear" from moving parts.

Hope that helps.

Amazon currently has the Power Rangers Titanus set for $15, if anyone is interested.
Ordered mine yesterday.

They also have a preview of this Teen Titans Go Cinderblock set that might be kinda tempting when it finally gets released...

I wonder how long this will take to affect the Imaginext line...

https://newsroom.hasbro.com/news-releas ... -and-other

The last report I heard (about Hasbro just getting the master toy license) had them starting their toy lines in spring of 2019 so I would guess the Imaginext Power Rangers line is safe at least until the end of the year.
