Made by DC Direct, this Zoom figure in the JLA Classified line came out in 2010. The line supposedly featured characters who were the most-requested as action figures, though I don’t know how true that is. Frankly I’m not a fan of it; the body is far too bulky for the character and his face is a bit weird. But some of us are completists, alas.
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 convention-exclusive figure was only available at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con. As suggested by the figures in the background, it represents Professor Zoom in the Flashpoint storyline (and not Zoom, as the text claims). The figure is about six inches tall and comes in some surprisingly elaborate packaging.
The figure is a bit unusual because it has an entirely new head sculpt. Many convention exclusives are typically just repaints of other toys for reasons of cost, but there was actually a bit of extra effort put into this figure. And his expression is so deliciously evil.
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.
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).
Out in 2008, Gorilla Grodd was part of a Minimate two-pack with the Flash. He’s apparently slightly taller than most Minimates, which is appropriate.
It’s a shame there haven’t been any other Minimate Flash villains (not even a repainted Reverse Flash, which is weird), because I love these little figures.
Out in 2011, this figure is part of the DC Classics line. It’s from Wave 18, one of the last before the series was discontinued from the mass market. The figure is about 6.5 inches high, notably taller than the Captain Cold from this line.
(Incidentally, note the spelling error on the display base. That was for promotion at Toy Fair; the figure doesn’t actually come with a base.)
Also from 2012’s Action League Flashpoint line, this fellow is supposed to be Professor Zoom but looks more like Zoom (I wish toy companies et al would get it straight). With his fist raised, he’s about 3 inches tall, although his head is pretty much at 2.5 inches.
This also comes in a two-pack with the Flash, although fortunately a different-looking Flash from the Citizen Cold pack. And can also probably still be found at retail.
From 2012, this figure is from the Action League Flashpoint line, so it’s technically Citizen Cold rather Captain Cold. But he looks pretty much the same either way. He’s about 2.5 inches tall.
He comes in a two-pack with the Flash, and can probably still be found at retail if you look hard enough (I found one when visiting the US a couple of months ago, but only one).
