DC Retro-Action Figures Series 1

For those of you that don't watch the toy world closely, EMCE Toys has been reviving the lost art of MEGO! Those 8 inch action figures with cloth outfits from the earliest days of our youth are returning, orchestrated by the same band that started it all and production handled with loving care by real fans of the original line. So far, Star Trek and Planet of the Apes made a come back, utilizing the original sculpts but advancing the technology with better bodies and more durable materials. Then came 2 pieces from Night of the Living Dead, the first new property to be created in the classic MEGO style in many years. Now EMCE joins up with Mattel for a little DC action! Matty has already released Green Arrow through their collector club, so that means he's long gone, but series 1 is set to hit in March and the whole planet should be able to get in on the fun. Check out Green Lantern, Sinestro, Superman and Lex Luthor.
