LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES:
DC DIRECT SERIES
THESE were a range
of beautifully-made models released in the DC DIRECT line over a
number of years, which were sadly discontinued before more Legionnaires
could be produced.
The first three in
the set, released in 2001, were the founders, and all came with
a flight ring and a flight ring. There were also neat individual
accessories: Saturn Girl had a Saturn-shaped base to stand on, Lightning
Lad had a detachable robot arm, and Cosmic Boy had cool iron balls
that could stick to magnets on his palms.
The next two in the
series to be released were Mon-El and Brainiac 5, released in 2002.
There were no accessories.
In that same year,
DC Direct also issued a model of Mordru.
A fabulous foursome
of Ultra Boy, Star Boy, Chameleon Boy and Sun Boy were next off
the rank in 2003. Still no females.
In early 2004 came
two popular Legionnaires: Timberwolf (sic) and Ferro Lad. they were
followed later in the year by invisible Kid and Colossal Boy, the
last in the series.
