    I can't argue that they shouldn't have skipped the A-listers, but I have a soft spot for Victor Buono, and Bookworm looks great in my Buffy library playset.

    I did wish they'd made the George Sanders Mr. Freeze though.

    Wanted: Legends of the West (Empire & Excel) and other western historically-based figures. Send me an offer.
    Also interested in figures based on literary characters.

    I don't have the same fondness for the smaller 5 point figures many collectors have, but I see the appeal. I think I'm about saturated with Batman '66 stuff at this point, but those Fleischer Superman figures...sweet. So I guess something for everyone.

    Really looking forward to the Batman 66 figures. The Batmobile looks more accurate than the funko one. Plus the soft goods capes are better for these new versions of Batman and Robin. The Superman ones look great as well. Wish some one would do the 50's George Reeves version. Plus I hope the Hanna Barbera characters do well so we can see Jan and Jace and the Herculoids.

    They got me with three words:
    Spooky
    Space
    Kook

    I've been waiting for 40 years for that, been teased and one wave away at times. The rest of the Scooby stuff looks spot on, exactly what I might have expected in the era. Fleischer Supes stuff is a definite. Stuff like Herculoids would work well at this scale, so hopefully that's in the cards. Don't recall seeing the Six Million Dollar Man figures this time around, though.

    I want all of the Batman, Superman, Birdman and Spaaaaaaace Ghost and some of the Scooby Doo. Might get 2 or 3 Lois figures for custom, maybe make a Mattel compatible Dale Arden. I disagree with skipping the A list characters. Funko was trying to spread them out in order to get more characters overall out. They were really pushing to get Green Hornet and Kato in a later wave because of the guest appearance. Never heard how that turned out. As for what they did, the only figure I have issue with is King Tut because he has balance issues. There is a papercraft site mainly focused on Doctor Who that has individual hideouts for most of those villains. I imagine when these come out there will be more hideouts done.
