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.
