Still some more figures to arrive or be released, but the collection is getting there. My original plan was to keep them in their packaging, but that took up too much space, so I the packages stored safely in the basement, and the figures on display. More stands are on order.

Full collection so far, with Legion of Doom on the left, Super Friends on the right, and the case.

Great collection, Chuck!  Where do get them, are they all currently out there, or do you have to hunt for them? 

I always like to have something I have to search for, makes it fun and more enjoyable when you finally find what you're looking for.

Thanks Nancy!

Actually, these are  pretty new to the market.  A company called Figures Toy Company is getting the permission/licensing to produce characters from retro tv shows/cartoons, as well as figures on real people.

They have a line of dolls for the band KISS, a line of dolls of professional wrestlers, and they are working on dolls from the old "Batman" tv  series that started Adam West, Burt Ward and later Yvonne Craig.  For that line, they are even producing three versions of CatWoman, one for each actress that portrayed her,  Lee Meriwether, Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt.

Bizarro is a fictional character, a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by writer Otto Binder and artist George Papp as a "mirror image" of Superman and first appeared in Superboy #68 (1958).

Debuting in the Silver Age of Comic Books (1956 - 1970), the character has often been portrayed as an antagonist to Superman, though on occasion he also takes on an anti-hero role, and appeared in both comic books and graphic novels as well as other DC Comics-related products such as animated and live-action television series, trading cards, toys, and video games.

Bizarro is depicted as having all the abilities of Superman, although these traits are reversed, such as,

"freeze vision" instead of heat vision
"flame breath" instead of freeze breath
"vacuum breath" instead of super breath
"Bizarro telescopic vision" which allows Bizarro to see a "short distance behind his head" rather than a "long distance in front of his head"
"Bizarro microscopic vision" which makes objects "actually smaller to everyone" rather than merely "appear to be bigger to only the user"
"Bizarro X-ray vision" which allows Bizarro to "only see through lead" rather than the ability to "see through anything except lead"
"Telescopic X-ray vision" which caused Bizarro to shoot x-rays from his eyes from "fifty miles around".[48]

This also applies to weaknesses, as Bizarro is vulnerable to blue kryptonite, as opposed to green kryptonite, which is lethal to Superman. Bizarro is actually strengthened by green kryptonite as opposed to blue kryptonite.

Just when you think there will be no more Super Friends stuff to collect, Fan Sets puts out a line of pins.

So far they've released Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Robin, Aquaman, Flash, Hawkman, Apache Chief, Firestorm, and Cyborg.

I contacted them, and they said for the rest of the year, the plan to release Green Lantern, Black Vulcan, Samurai, El Dorado, Hawkwoman, Rima the Jungle Girl, Atom, and the Wonder Twins.
