Rogues Memorabilia

This is something I only recently learned about.  A 1976 DC stamp set made by Celebrity Stamps, which includes a handful of Rogues.  There were actually six sets (Flash, Supervillains, Batman, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, and Superman), and one big album for the stamps to go in.

These were simply collectibles, not actual stamps for mailing, but they’re very neat.  Some of the art is clearly taken directly from old comics and promotional art, and some might be original (or at least I don’t recognize it).  There was also a Marvel set.

I don’t own this (I’d like to), but it seems likely that anyone seeking to purchase it will have to spend a fair bit of money.

From 1986, this villain-centric RPG book contains character bios and scenarios for the characters to play.  The premise is about Goldface gathering villains — including several Rogues, but not limited to them — to become the crime boss of Central City.  It also contains maps of Central City, and while they can’t really be considered canon, they’re an interesting bit of detail for fans.
It’s a rare piece of memorabilia with Golden Glider in it, which makes it particularly noteworthy.  And there’s some original art by Carmine Infantino (he did the cover and a little bit of interior artwork), which is also of note.

This casino-style slots game, titled The Flash: Velocity, can be played at various gambling sites online.  It’s not strictly memorabilia, but games fall under the umbrella of Rogue-related merchandise.

This children’s book with colour illustrations was published in 2003, and depicts the Justice League battling a scheme by Mirror Master, Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang.  
It also exists as a black and white activity book for colouring and games.

This 2012 figure is part of Mattel’s DC Universe Signature Collection.  Though to scale with Mattel’s DC Classics line, it was not released on the mass-market — the company had decided the figures weren’t profitable enough to release in stores.  Instead, the Signature Collection figures were sold online in limited quantities, and there were no more available once they’d sold out.  Fortunately a lot of small shop owners/dealers bought them as well, so they’re sometimes available at comic shops and from toy dealers.  That’s the only way you’re going to find one of these if you haven’t gotten it already (I saw one for sale at a convention a few months ago, so they’re definitely still out there).

McCulloch here is sold in a box with some nice artwork, and is a great 6.5-inch figure.  He’s very poseable, and Mattel even re-tooled him slightly in response to fan input about his accuracy.  His two guns can fit in his hands or the holsters, and their removable muzzles allow you to customize the way they look.  If you can find him, I think he’s worth purchasing.

This 2013 book is different from the other Capstone DC books I’ve seen; the book is longer and clearly aimed at a slightly older audience (though it’s still for children).  The story is about Batman going undercover as Matches Malone to investigate a supervillain convention.  Though the Batvillains are naturally the most prominent, the Rogues are in it a fair bit.
The book is mostly text, with some illustrations.  You can see one of the art pages here.

Here’s an incredibly rare item: a kite with Mirror Master and the Flash, made by Remco in 1971.  It’s sized 34” x 34”, and made of plastic if the ad is accurate — but I’ve never seen any pictures of it aside from these.

Be prepared to pay a lot of money for this if you ever seek to buy it.

This Heat Wave (though the package spells it ‘Heatwave’) figure was released by Mattel in 2011 as part of its Justice League Unlimited line.  It was only available as a convention exclusive three-pack with Mirror Master and the Flash, though if you look around you can find people re-selling it now.

Heat Wave is a bit smaller than 4.5 inches.  It’s unfortunate that that the figure isn’t particularly easy to find, but we almost didn’t get it at all, so a convention exclusive is better than nothing.

Mattel really got a lot of mileage out of this Justice League Unlimited Mirror Master figure.  It’s been released three times — on its own (2008), as part of a three-pack with Lex Luthor and Copperhead (2006), and as part of a convention exclusive three-pack with the Flash and Heat Wave (2011).  It’s about 4.5 inches tall.

The Mirror Master sold on its own is slightly different from the ones available in the three-packs, as the solitary figure is the only version to come with a mirror.  Otherwise they all seem identical.  

From Junk Food, this officially licenced t-shirt was released in 2010.  Like a lot of superhero t-shirts these days, it’s purposely faded to give it a vintage look.  And it’s very difficult to find now, unfortunately.
