What Martian Manhunter would you recommend?

Post by Zaul on Wed Sep 30, 2009 10:58 am

So I'm collecting DC Universe Classics and DC Superheroes Line atm.

So far I'm struggling to find a Good Martian Manhunter.

Anyone know any good 6-7 Inch Figures that would fit in well with the DC universe classics figures, J'onn was pretty tall, around the 7 foot range, so the size needs to be at least as tall as 6 inches if not a bit taller.

I'm debating between either of these two, lest I get a better one.

They haven't released a DCUC Martian Manhunter yet...I'm sure they will in the not too distant future.

You could do what I'm doing and patiently wait for DCUC Wave 213 for Mattel to finally release Martian Manhunter. Or not.

Of the two pictured, I think the first one "matches" the style of the DCUC figures better than the second one.

Cheers.

I had heard somewhere he wasn't being made due to the fact he's well.. Dead and not really a fan favorite.

I think it's a shame Personally, I loved MMH.

I might wait a bit longer and see what's gonna happen, if not DC Direct ftw.

MM will be part of the DCUC line up for sure, I think there is more love for the Green guy then hate.

Yeah the original Martian Manhunter DC Direct figure would be my bet, it was also the best Martian Manhunter in my opinion. It was released twice, with different shaded paint apps. The single card release hard a darker green skin tone, and the (in my opinion superior) repainted re-release, that was in the Brave & The Bold boxed set, had a lighter green skin tone. So you might want to take a look into those.

A couple years back both, but particularly the boxed set MM, used to fetch reasonably high prices on the 'bay, but that was back when they were the only DCD Martian Manhunter figures made, and as they were earlier releases, done is smaller numbers than a lot of the releases that followed, and when DCD was still the only game in town for quality DC figures. I imagine that the price may have come down a bit again now, but who knows...

You can see examples of both figures at Joe Acevedo's DC Direct release archives here, single card release was in 2001, the B&tB boxed set was in 2002: http://www.joeacevedo.com/docs/figurezone/dcdactionfigures2001.htm

Hope that helps.

Hi Zaul (Paul),
tried to PM you but message said you weren't set up for them.
I posted both your DC Superheroes today that you bought from me off Ebay. Positive feedback left.
Feel free to send me a list of your wants and I'll let you know what I have before I list them on Ebay.
Thanks again,
cheers Rick (the Iceman)
