To sum up:

Ironically, I'd think Deadman would be most at home in the batcave out of everyone in that picture.

I took my yellow "bruce to batman" elevator thing out of this playset too. Had to unscrew everything on the back to do it but it was worth it. The yellow was jarring. Otherwise, I really like it (the middle portion) as a playset, and I don't get why it gets the hate it does.

I want to spray paint mine too, as well as Hasbro's batcave to a darker color like Casimir did, but I'm afraid I'll ruin it.

Left to Right:
Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes is a Brave & the Bold Happy Meal toy from McDonalds.
Blue Beetle Ted Kord is a "prototype" purchased off eBay. Expensive but worth it!
The third guy isn't a Blue Beetle at all but a Ben 10 character called Big Chill. I was going to use him as a base for a Blue Beetle custom since he already looks VERY Jaime-esque but decided I really didn't need to.

Funny coincidence! I saw this picture and thought "That Static toy is so cool! I would love him."
Today I went to a Rummage sale and there was a ziplock baggie with him, McD's Aquaman from Brave the Bold, a Disney's Aladdin figure, a McD's ICe Age 2 toy, and some Pokemon base, all for 50 cents! Talk about a quick turnaround from wanting an old toy to getting it!

It's close to JLU scale but not a very good quality figure. I had to do my own painting on him.

BATTLE OF THE BLIGHTS!

Image

The Burger King Blight is really too short. Like, Al Pratt kinda short. His feet come with pegs as part of the sculpt, holding him to his base. But I JUST took two seconds w/ my Swiss Army knife and BOOM, free and ready to stand on his own.

The official Batman Beyond Blight is clearly too tall. Which sucks as he's the only villain they made for this line (not counting the Inque Burger King key chain).

My suggestion? Get a Dr. Destiny head from Stew Customs, put it on an Old Bruce Wayne figure and do some fun painting.

Not to get too off topic but I just bought an Inque figure off ebay because of this thread. Didn't even know that particular figured existed.

Yeah, she's a pretty neat figure. A little large for JLU but she is a shape shifter so it's not too crazy. Also, she has a clip in her back that you will probably want to remove and then fill in the hole and paint over black. I think she's suppose to be a key chain or something but it's not a very hard fix at all.

the blight is almost completely gray and required a lot of painting on his body.

Glad you're enjoying AND learning of new treasures out there!

J'onn's bed is an alien cocoon thingie from an X-Files figure set. I thought it would be fun and creepy if the martian slept in a pod. The background is actually an air purifier for my living room :)

Really really want Solomon Grundy, just for the packaging background now after seeing the Clayface with it. It reminds me of one of my favorite episodes of TNBA, Growing Pains, where the finale was at the sewers. I really wish I knew how to custom the girl from that episode too. She looks so anime-ish, more than any Timmverse character that there should be a toy out there similar.

I kind of want that STAS braniac too, for the vehicle. It's not that show accurate, but it is in the show, and I'm a sucker for all show vehicles. Does it work with the JLU braniac?
