As a kid, long long ago now, I was introduced to comics of an American nature, full of brightly costumed heroes, some with special powers and others with just a pure sense of Justice.
Now many years later I can collect these wondrous characters.....In fact I do

I used to collect DC stuff, but limited it to Bats and Superman. Here are my old shelves:

If almost all of my stuff wasn't packed, I'd post my DCU/Watchmen collection.

So far I have Rorshach and The Question, Nite Owl (modern) and Blue Beetle (classic), and Silk Spectre (modern) and Black Canary (who I felt most closely matched in style). Captain Atom and Dr Manhattan.

I'm not sure what, if anything, to do with The Comedian, since his base character (Peacemaker) is virtually non-existent in the modern DC universe. I don't know of any figure of him in the DCUC range.

Ozymandias is even harder. I had never even heard of Thunderbolt until I started trying to assemble the set.

Deathstroke, maybe?

I always viewed Comedian as evil Bucky before the Winter Soldier existed so you could use either if you don't mind Marvel cross-pollination.

My personal favourites were the "Crime Syndicate of Amerika" stories, which led to these

I'm still annoyed that Mattel didn't make the Earth-2 versions of Wally & Kyle in the CSA boxset.

I was always a huge fan of the lesser known and seriously awesome DC Teams like the Doom Patrol and the Metal Men.   here are a few pics from my shelves Smile

I had this idea passed to me on another forum, but it works brilliantly
the 12" figure base for Superman (Christopher Reeve) with a 6" Superman figure

I also like the variants so instead of the usual Aquaman and Black Manta I went for these

Are you going to get the hook-handed Aquaman too?
Do you think Mattel will ever release Nekron's Black Lantern Scythe?

The Hook handed Aquaman is a bit too modern for me,
Sadly the Scythe for the Nekron Black Lantern will always be a want (I assume you mean the Collect & Build Figures Scythe)
It would be a real thing of beauty if they did make one though.

For Christmas, I got Mattycollector's exclusive Ocean Master & Ra's al Ghul. Both DC Direct & Mattel made figures of Ocean Master beardless & without his nose covered. Don't they know that the alternative looks much better & doesn't require me to customize them? This is exactly the reason I have to keep explaining to my family that Ocean Master is Aquaman's second greatest foe.
I can't believethat Mattel didn't bother to paint Ra's's temples gray. He looks muck better with some black around his eyes. I might do something to improve his cape too.

My very first DC comic Action Figure, I remembered reading the comic as a kid, so when I saw it on Ebay I just had to get it.
