Hawkman "Amy Man" Toy (Finally!)

Back in October of 2009, I was at the Greenville Comic-Con when I found a little green plastic "Army Man" style Hawkman.  I said at the time that a picture would be forthcoming... so a guess a year late isn't too bad, right?

Pretty neat little chunk of plastic.  He stands on one of my toy shelves, right in front.  Anyone else have other heroes in this style?

That's really great! Not only that it exists at all, but I like the form of the sculpture itself.

That's so cute!! I love little green Army men. I wonder what other heroes there are?

Luke - That's really cool! Nicely sculpted toy!

To answer your question about other heroes, the closest I've seen is an Aquaman figure from 1987. It looks somewhat similar, but less defined. I've got one, but Rob covered it over on the Aquaman Shrine.

The dealer I bought it from had several others, such as Superman and Batman. I want to say that he also had a Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and possibly Wonder Woman. But I am not sure. I want to say that they came in several colors as well.

For a buck, this was a great pick up!
