The Trade Paperbacks (TPB) for the Wonder Twins maxi-series are complete now.

The first book ("Activate") was released in November of 2019 and collects the first 6 issues of the 12 issue run.  The second book ("The Fall & Rise of The Wonder Twins") was released this month.

Another comment on my blog about the strange things some people collect.  ;D

HeroClix is a collectible miniatures game that uses the Clix system that centers on the world of superhero comic books, especially the Marvel and DC Comics universes.  Players construct teams of comic book heroes, villains, or characters from various video games series such as Street Fighter, Gears of War, and Halo and engage in a turn-by-turn battle on grid maps based on various storyline locations. The game was originally designed and produced by WizKids, but was discontinued in November 2008 when WizKids owner Topps shut down their HeroClix line. In September 2009, collectible toy producer National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) purchased some of the WizKids' intellectual property from Topps, including the HeroClix rights and then soon after began to produce and sell new HeroClix series.

I happened to find a few pics of these HeroClix mini figures, and found Superman and Wonder Woman, and it made me wonder if perhaps I could find all of the characters from the Super Friends cartoon.  They did not have all of the characters, but they did have most, so I found them all on ebay and bid on them.  The last one arrived yesterday, on my birthday.

Here is a pic of Superman, next to a shot glass, for a size comparison.

There is a company named FanSets that makes metallic pins of various characters.

They have pins for Big Bang Theory, Harry Potter, Scooby Doo, Rick & Morty, the Batman TV show from the 60s, various Star Trek lines, and a number of DC Comics lines for Justice League, All Star Squadron, Legion of Super Heroes, and others.

I've managed to collect a number of pins of heroes who appeared on Super Friends.


Here is the collection I have so far.

The 5 original Super Friends -  Superman, Wonder Woman, Bathman, Robin, & Aquaman





Apache Chief,  Cyborg, & the Wonder Twins.
