Upcoming: DCUC Hawkgirl
One thing about Hawkman and Hawkgirl having been a couple for so long is that typically if you get one, you eventually get the other. That's the case here with this DCUC Hawkgirl toy. You will recall that I picked up the DCUC Hawkman figure a few months back (who, unfortunately, is still encased in his bubble because I keep putting off rearranging the shelf to fit him). So I will certainly be on the look out for this classic, Silver Age style Hawkgirl to display with him once she is released. I am not sure what kind of accessories she will come with, but judging from the mold of her fists, a spear might be a fair guess.
The rest of Wave 8, of which Hawkgirl is a part, contains other characters tangentially related to the Hawks. Doctor Fate (both in his classic look as well as the modern version) was a fellow member of the Justice Society of America, and Commander Steel (who also is on my buy list even though I shouldn't spend the money) was a member of the All-Star Squadron. Rounding out the group is classic Hawk-baddie Gentleman Ghost -- another one I am going to have to resist purchasing.
You'd think that now that I am a father, I would buy toys for my son, but alas, it would seem that the more things change, the more they stay the same...
