McFarlane Super Powers
@scottg10 Thank you so much for mentioning this! I’d been checking CMDStore regularly in hopes that they’d offer him the same way they offered Black Manta, but I’d only seen the bundles so far.
I put my order in last night, and an hour later they were sold out, so double thanks to you!
Got Black Batman yesterday from Amazon. Been a huge fan of this reboot since it dropped, but this one is a disappointment. The black plastic is really cheap, with noticeable marbling. Almost looks like a bootleg compared to the blue and gray from the same molds.
From the Multiverse thread. Leaked list:
I don't expect to like every release, but if those are literally gold versions of Flash and Batman, that kind of sucks. On a positive note, I'm looking forward to Hal and Sinestro. I would say I have no interest in rainbow Batman, but I get it could be a fun offering in this style.
@batprofessor it sucks that your black Batman is a disappointment, but I don't see the cheapness in my two. Under a bright light I see a noticeable difference in the plastic between the limbs and torso, but I see no marbling. I actually liked him enough to order a third to have an extra loose figure. I wonder if I'm being overly forgiving or if there as are variations in the plastic.
Dang. I can't believe they aren't working in 2nd female yet. Not even one of the McF standbys like Batgirl, Catwoman or Supergirl.
Wave 7 rumors are making the rounds:
Blue Beetle (JLI), Brainiac (first appearance), Kilowog, Sinestro (Sinestro Corps), Superman Gold (Super Powers 40th Anniversary), Batman Manga, Blue Beetle’s Bug Ship, Brainiac’s Skull Ship.
if true, this is an awesome wave. Most McFarlane leaks are true, and some of these were already rumored from Toy Fair.
Facebook link if you have access:
I like that list much more than the one I re-posted. Hopefully we see an end to the Walmart exclusives.
Okay, Todd. I understand that you wanted to get a bunch of repaints out in time for Christmas since the line is now going wide. Fine.
But Toy Fair and NYCC are coming up, and I need 2024 to bring us some new characters, a nice mix of modern and classic. Characters that never made it to the original line, but should have, especially the ladies such as Supergirl, Batgirl, and Black Canary.
And a playset!
I heard from a friend just yday that he saw listings for a Blue Beetle Bug and Brainiac Skullship. I'm already customizing a Bug out of the popcorn bucket CineMark had but I'll double-dip for this one if it's decent enough. I'm absolutely balls-deep on the SkullShip regardless.
I'm absolutely balls-deep on the SkullShip regardless.
I'm excited for Brainiac and the Skull ship, a vehicle I'd always wanted to see in the original line. If we can just get a new Superman with the classic SP colors and a better head sculpt, this would be my new favorite line. As it is, I'm putting my money and space toward SP instead of Multiverse now.
Is there a classic comic Black Adam yet?
Next wave is up on Amazon (Sinestro not in stock yet), going up other places at noon eastern. TNI has a lot of pics, gold Flash and gold Batman are pictured on the card backs.

Sinestro is up at BBTS. Gold Flash and Batman are up at EE and MTS, both with their ridiculous shipping costs. I don’t know why Amazon and BBTS don’t have the gold figures, something strange going on here…. If you order from MTS, use coupon code HOLIDAY23 for 15% off.
Those aren't links... I've posted real actual links below:
Sinestro = Not in stock yet - https://www.amazon.com/McFarlane-Toys-Powers-Sinestro-Action/dp/B0BX4SPGVF?ref_=ast_sto_dp
@geoffdude Not sure, they work for me from the forum.
However HOLIDAY23 coupon is not working for me, though it seemed to work for some. Use MTS10 for 10% instead if that does not work.
