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 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.

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 2007, the Heat Wave Heroclix is part of the Justice League set.
The photo makes it look somewhat large, but as with most Heroclix, it’s only about an inch tall.
(I had difficulty finding a quality photo of it, and my photos of mine didn’t turn out well; this thing is tough to photograph.)

Out in 2011, this is volume one of an RPG sourcebook.  It contains alphabetized biographies and gaming statistics for a variety of DC characters, including several Rogues (volume 2 has the remaining characters).  This volume has entries for Abra Kadabra to Heat Wave, though curiously there’s nothing for Dr Alchemy.
The books are published by the gaming company Green Ronin.

Honestly, the most terrible thing about this panel is the revelation that Piper’s underwear is green with white polka dots and Roscoe wears yellow stripes on his undergarments.  These guys should not be allowed to dress themselves.

A classic reblog of Rogues and their embarrassing underwear choices.
