    These are good news. I have to add my voice to the no paper product wings. There's multiple uses for these, I know I'm not the first to mention it.
    Silver Age Hawkman
    Golden Age Hawkman (hawk & later cloth mask)
    Hawkgirl (golden and silver Age)
    Golden Eagle (more Titan's West)
    Dawnstar (Legion, Duh why hasn't there been any Legion)
    Azrael
    There's plenty of opportunities to make them cost effective. The harness and wings being one piece for the Hawks would be ideal.
    Rubber or jiggular like wings would be cool. One of the biggest problems with these would be weight. Getting them to stand might be one of their design concerns. How about a thin plastic frame covered in cloth? I think this option would look very Mego-like.

    I agree 100%. They better not screw this up.

    I'd be at least content if they made the wings out of a stiff felt instead of the cardboard. Felt can be printed on and would hold up better than the plastic coated cardboard. Plus it could be ironed if they get bent. I would also think felt would be cheaper.

    Happy would be to use molded plastic. There have to be tons of wing molds from Christmas Angels made in China.

    I've always imagined Mego doing vacuformed, slightly undersized wings if they had gotten around to characters like Hawkman, Hawkwoman, or Angel. They'd have been light and cheap (think like the TMP Enterprise playset). If I had access to a vacuformer, I'd have built them a long time ago.
