Upcoming: DC Infinite Heroes Hawkman Three-Pack
This three-pack from Mattel's 3 3/4" "Infinite Heroes" collection, features a modern Hawkman along with a pair of Thanagarian Wingmen to back him up. This inclusion of "Army builder" type figures is not new to the line: a currently available three-pack features Commissioner Gordeon and a pair of GCPD officers. I do think it is interesting that they went with the modern Hawkman look, complete with the weapon-festooned belt, instead of the Hawkworld-era costume. But then again, that was a long time ago, and maybe I should just let it go, huh?
Of course, they could have also gone with a true "Hawkman" three-pack, with Golden Age Carter wearing the mask instead of the helmet, Modern Carter, and Hawkworld Katar, but now I am just pipe-dreaming again.
I have not yet seen this set in stores, but I plan to buy it, if only because how many other chances will I have to get some Wingmen toys?! Probably not too many I imagine!
