Spotted: DC Infinite Heroes Hawkman And Wingmen

I was at Walmart last week and saw this set, featuring everyone's favorite Winged Wonder and a pair of Wingmen (oh, excuse me "Thanagarian Warrior").  I also saw a single-carded Wingman as well.  

Hawkman looks pretty good, definitely espousing the modern visual style of the hero -- bulky musculature, gear-holding belt, big helmet.  The Wingman mold I am less sure about.  The general look is although, with the stubby wings and helmets, but something is a little off to me about it.  The chest armor just looks a little odd at this size.  But I am not really totally sold on this line yet anyway, so maybe that's just my bias talking.  

Still, I like the Hawkman, and I do like "army builder" figures like the Wingmen.  I am not sure if Hawkman will ever be available single-carded or not; I suppose I could pick up the three-pack along with the single-carded Adam Strange and play out my own version of Rann-Thanagar Holy War.

So Hawkman comes with two guys that talk to the other chicks while Carter is trying to score? I'm confused.

I just started coming across these at Christmas time. I thought they would be bigger. They look really tiny, awkward, and lack detail. Plus, I'd have to buy a whole set to build Despero, so they can blow. I'll keep my Total Justice Hawkman and Despero, thank you very much!
