Pics of Mattel DC Superheroes Toys Wave 3


Bummed out about the demise of the Justice League movie? Dry your tears, little one?because we’ve got toys to cheer you up! Sure, it’s not quite a nice as a big-budget live-action adaptation of your favoriote superhero comic, but…well, it’s all you’re getting.

Anyways, pics of the third wave of Mattel’s DC Superheroes line have surfaced; they’re nicely sculpted (thanks to the Four Horsemen) if slightly less articulated than Marvel Legends. There’s Green Lantern, Nightwing, Robin (with full-leg tights, mind you), Green Lantern’s nemesis Sinestro (in regular goofy get-up and Sinestro Corps outfit varients), Deathstroke the Terminator (in cool villain outfit and goofy old-man head varients) and a Solomon Grundy build-a-figure.
Whenever I see Green Lantern, I can’t help but remember there was a squirrel Green Lantern who was run over by a car, one of the many reason I made mine Marvel back in the day. The rest of the pics are after the jump. (Via Superhero Times)
