One of the Mess guys mentioned that Kamandi has a hint of the Ryan Sook version from Wednesday Comics, so I'm OK with that. I might still want to make a very Kirby version using a New Gods buck though.

That's a good idea. Lightray would be a good starter. Head might be a little big, but then Kirby's noggins were on the large side.

You'd have to get rid of a fair bit of the back of his head to stick some blond locks on so it didn't look ginormous, but it might just work.

Obsidian is the absolute must for me. If I buy Iron, I'm surely gonna get Gold. Alan Scott I'll have to see in person. Zatanna looks nice. Tyr I'll pass. Kamandi looks a little old. And I again really want the C&C, shit!

Does the comic purists understand that they're only getting Kamandi is because he showed up in Batman TB&TB? I'm tired of reading comments like "Comic Universe and Cartoon Universe should stay away or restricted to only cartoon toy lines", if that was the case, you wouldn't have Kamandi, or Copperhead, or so many others.

Actually the guy who is in charge of DC for Mattel stated Kamandi and vowed that he would be made into a figure . and surprised that it does not state that like Iron gold has moving parts for one would think Mattel now that they made the first of the Mental Men would just reuse the mold and save them money. for it would be cool to have all the Metal men with moving parts. and Ultra Humanite is the only reason i am going to buy Tyre. for i mostly want Gold and Kamandi and Obsidian and Zartana since do not like the other attempts at her in plastic.  As for Alan  only going to buy him for my JSa and to complete ultra. and we now need Jade and a rose and thorn to complete the family since we have Alan and Obsidian now.

Meh, not best wave ever, but pretty good.  No matter what they do to Kamandi, he's always just going to be a dude in shorts, I don't hate him, but I have no reason to like him either.

Gold, Obsidian and Alan Scott (Boo! Where's Kyle?) look good.  Tyr looks pretty unique too.

Zatanna needs a repaint - white vest and cleavage, the yellow vest looks garish to me.  Boo on that choice (along with Alan Scott).

Ultra-Humanite looks great, really like the face.

kamandi was one of the first comics I ever read, so I must own him. I also need to check out the Brave&bold ep he showed up in.
Agree on the yellow vest on zatanna seems odd.

Yeah, I really prefer the white waistcoat and cleavage version like the DCD Adam Hughes statue.

I'm really excited about this Wave. Just some great looking figures....yellow vest and Ross Gellar glowing teeth and all.

Shame it's an ebay exclusive wave. I'll have to rely on folks like Ryan, my new bestest buddy in the whole toy world!  Grin

Yay! Friends for me!  My only friends are in New Zealand and Australia, because I'll send toys there.

Seriously though, I'm going to have to figure out a way to get rid of Obsidian's teeth. It's a stupid look. Defeats the purpose of the costume.
