The Uhura/Sulu "Mirror Mirror" two pack looked OK at first glance, but now that I'm looking at this more closely I'm not as impressed. I don't know why they didn't use the 1970's sculpt for the Uhuru & then just put her in the "Mirror Mirror" outfit, like they did with the recent Kirk/Spock two-pack. And, the Sulu is obviously a different - and IMHO inferior - face sculpt than the one that came out carded this Summer.
However, the Romulan Commander looks excellent - obviously based on the original sculpt. Looking forward to getting this.
Tempted to get some of the DC 14" figures as well - that old-skool Flash looks great.
These look great - as always, thanks for the pics.
Trivia: The new DC 14" Luther & the Wave 1 General Zod seem to be based on the 12" Mego Superman figures from the late 1970's. These late '70's figures were seemingly done to promote the '78 Superman film. After doing some research on this, it looks like the head sculpts were based on the way the characters looked in the film, but the outfits were more from the comics:
Great pics.! It's ironic that Wave 3 is coming out in some places, and Wave 2 has still been tough to find for some.
I had no idea the alternate lime green shirt Kirk was even coming out as a figure, carded or otherwise - cool. IIRC, in the series Kirk wore this as a kind of "dress" shirt.
I only collect Classic ST figures from this line, but the Marcia Brady figure looks nice - I like the retro '70's clothing.
Also like the Bewitched two-pack. I wasn't around when the show originally aired, but remember watching re-runs in the mid-late '80's - hilarious series. One of my favorite lines from the show was when some distant cousin of Adora (Samantha's mother) said to her (I'm paraphrasing), "Adora, whenever I think of you as a blood relative, I long for a transfusion." - LOL.
More wave showing up, this time broken nose Marcia Brady complete with football accessory...
Why would Mego use a cel of Marcia from Filmation's Brady Kids cartoon when this figure is not based on the Marcia from that series? The cartoon did not have any in-universe connection to the live action series. Mego's TV and film lines were always straight adaptations, hence the reason the Star Trek Megos--for example--were based on the original, not animated series.

Good question. I have very dim memories of The Brady Bunch regular series, and didn't know that a cartoon had ever come out prior to reading this thread. But, yes - the figure is obviously from the live-action series, not the animated show. So, why a pic. of the animated character is on the package is beyond me....
Stopped by 2 Targets today, no wave 3, but they had some wave 2. The only one they had I was remotely interested in was the Samantha from Bewitched to add to the monster display as a "classic witch" character. The 8 inch figures were on sale for $11.99 (or $22.99 for the two-packs) but the 14 inch DC were still regular price.
Wave 3 is up on the website but all listed as out of stock.
edit: I checked the website a couple minutes ago and Flash popped up as in stock, so I placed an order and got one, but just afterwards it showed out of stock again.
