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.

This 2013 book lists all the hero and villain pets in the DC Super-Pets universe.  Many appear in the Super-Pets series of books, but I don’t think all of them do — for instance, Captains Cold and Boomerang and their pets have entries in this encyclopedia, but as far as I know they haven’t yet appeared in any books.  Professor Zoom and his newts appear in their own book, however, as do Gorilla Grodd and his pet monkey.
The art is absolutely fun and adorable, and the creators clearly had fun inventing all these pets.  It’s very kid-friendly and overall quite cute, and still readily available for sale.
(You can see the entries for the Rogues and their pets here.)

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.

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 card (it’s a single card, showing both sides) is from the 1994 DC Masters series by Skybox.

The card is foil-etched, a double-sided “spectra” which is a rare chase card (in other words, difficult to find).  One side features the Flash, and the other depicts Professor Zoom.  The illustrations were painted by well-known fantasy artist Boris Vallejo.

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.  

These cards are from a game called Top Trumps, which is apparently popular in Europe (it seems to be rare to non-existent in North America).  There are actually a whole bunch of Top Trumps sets, based around varied themes such as characters from TV shows and movies, British celebrities, teen bands, various animals, and dinosaurs.  The cards have different stats, and the card/player with the best stats wins.
The DC version of the game was first released in 2005, and includes Captain Cold and Professor Zoom.  There was another set without Rogues in 2006, and a re-release without Rogues a few years after that.
This is literally the only image I’ve ever been able to find of these cards; I don’t have a set of my own.

Out in late 2012, these tiny figures are Mini Mez-Itz by Mezco.  They’re only two inches tall and obviously don’t have much articulation, but their small size makes them very cute.  They’re sold in a two-pack together and Cold has a gun he can hold.
For some reason these figures were delayed by over a year and are apparently not available in Canada (I ordered mine through the US).
