The Teen Titans of yesteryear would be nice to see. I’d be down for it. They need a classic Deathstroke with them big old boots to go along with them.

On another note I wonder if we can get classic Giganta about the size of those mega figs Mac is churning out.

Mr McFarlane: Please Take My Money

And I agree with the poster above: I'd love some 1986-7 era New Teen Titans.

After getting a Cyborg in Wave Three, I've dreamt of a Wave 4 with Nightwing and Kid Flash for umpteen years.

Beast boy should come with some green animal pack ins. Like a small green hawk, snake, dog or something.

That will be me when I turn the corner in the Toy isles and see these sitting there. Like a million dreams I’ve had coming true.

Now if only McDonalds will bring back the McDLT and the Batman Forever Burger and collector cups.

This reminds me of MOTU Origins, like when they get the designs right in that line they are some of my favorite Masters of the Universe figure. I think it's taking the vintage design aesthetics, modernizing it in a way where it still fits in with the old stuff, but is also something new.
Yup. May ReAction burn in hell.
Haha, to be fair SOME of the ReAction stuff works, I think GI Joe ones are legit cool.

The Super Powers revival continues! It’s like some secret cabal of toy industry leaders got together and decided it was finally time to revive the Super Powers form factor. The Toy Illuminati is among us!

Now if only Hasbro would get with the program and make their retro Marvel line fit this Super Powers form factor...

I don't know too much about Grendel other than it's a wicked/evil spirit that possess or infects people, right?

But Mr. Monster I know. He's the freakin' son of the previous Mr. Monster and the Lilith, daughter of Dracula. I wonder if the Shadow is a possibility.

Agreed! Hasbro claims Marvel Retro is what Kenner would have made in the 80’s if they had the Marvel license, but Super Powers clearly shows otherwise. A lost opportunity…

I never do this but I'm checking my local Walmart at lunch time for these. I'm especially hoping to find the Batwing.

I would say the price point for these is perfect but it's actual beyond perfect. In 2022, getting a uniquely sculpted and package vehicle for $20 is amazing.

Wasn't the Batmobile like $15-$20 back in 1984?

McFarlane Toys: Modern figure quality; retro figure pricing!
Well, I went to Walmart and, quite predicatably, didn't find these. However, I was shocked when I saw a NECA online exclusive movie April O'Neil figure tossed in some clearance end-cap. It was yellow-tagged for $15 so I immediately bought it. Very unexpected but it made the trip well-worth it.

I was thinking, doesn't Walmart have some collectors event in July?

That'll probably be the time when these figures get posted online for sale.

Really hope these are easy to order online from somewhere that packs well. I want a set to keep carded. The card art is just too nostalgic.
