Displayed: DC Universe

Two or three times a year, I pick up my DC Universe figures and reassemble the display shelf I have set up. Most of these are DC Universe Classics (or the Green Lantern Classics off-shoot), though there are also several DC Direct figures mixed in. About a third of the characters are wired up in flight: everyone else is either balanced, placed on a stand, or leaned against another character (or a Batcycle).

The flyers all stay in place; everyone else basically just topples over in time (which is why I decided to snap some pictures ASAP).

The big addition this year has been to the Lantern Corps. With the upcoming movie, I've been buying like crazy, and even trying my hand at a custom or two.

I know I mentioned this when I talked about the plastic appetizer swords I found in a party supply store, but I didn't have a photo available at the time. Here's Hal and Sinestro fighting (the yellow electricity on Sinestro's left arm came from the same Liada Shadowrun figure who donated her cape to the aforementioned custom Green Lantern I made.

Here's a quick shot of Batman and Catwoman hanging out in front of the Batcycle I repainted last year.


  1. Wow this is a great way to display the toys. But can wonder woman fly?

  2. EPIC! You have some very collectible DCUCs, Man... Awesome!

  3. LEon: Wonder Woman can generally fly in the comics, at least since the Crisis. I'm pretty sure she had at least limited flight in the 60's and 70's, too, and I'd be surprised if no one ever gave her the power in the Golden Age, even if it was temporary.

    Most animated versions have her able to fly, as well (Justice League being the obvious example). That said, live-action versions usually leave it out.

    I'm not sure what's happening with the upcoming DC reboot. Personally, I'm hoping she keeps the power of flight, but time will tell.
