Continuing the photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens, today we’re looking at the twice-made robot with all the powers of the Justice League…Amazo! First, the JUSTICE LEAGUE Super Rare:   …then the original Unique from COSMIC JUSTICE: Both barely hold the token.

A few months back, I played Diana’s Wardrobe: a team consisting of figures wearing some costume that Wonder Woman’s worn across the years. With the recent release of Wonder Woman (#D-001) at Origins and GenCon, there’s a new addition. I was blessed with one of these ultra-rare figures by a fellow player (and brother-in-Christ), so […]
