The much rumored line up for Mattel's DC Universe Classics wave 17 set has now been confirmed. Darkest Night fans will probably be happy to here it is going to be the rainbow Lantern set.
The first action figure is Indigo Lantern, Atom
Next, Black Lantern Hal Jordan. Looks like a cool head sculpt.
Another Hal Jordan, this time a White Lantern. At least they're changing up the facial expressions.
Next up is Blue Lantern, Flash
Next is Star Sapphire, Wonder Woman.
A transparent Orange Lantern Lex Luthor
And finally a Sinestro Corps Scarecrow.
And the Collect and Connect action figure for Wave 17 will be Anti-Monitor.
And that's the DC Universe Classics wave 17 line up. My first impressions are.....why is this wave not part of the newly launched spin off Green Lantern toy line instead of the DCUC toy line???? Also, I would've much preferred a regular Scarecrow instead of a Sinestro Corps version. The Lex looks cool as does Blue Flash but I can't say I'm foaming at the mouth for this set. You will probably find this set available towards the 2nd quarter of 2011.
***Possible Spoiler Alert***
Unconfirmed rumors of the DC Universe Classics Wave 18's line up point to it consisting mainly of characters from the old Super Friends cartoon. It is being dubbed the Super Friends Diversity wave on the Internet and consists of characters such as El Dorado, Black Vulcan, Samurai, a new Bizarro with interchangeable hands and head to switch to Superman (what about the chest piece?). Metallo, Manhunter round out the line up with the Collect and Connect figure will be Apache Chief. Again, this is just a rumored line up. All i have to say about this is, I truly hope it is only a rumor. I have no interest in any of the ethnic Super Friends even though i loved the show, they were by far the worst part of it.
