Now BBTS has a Barry figure from the Tick, as well as Tick in disguise (Tick with a tie on) for pre order. They also have a set of figures in Black and White.

Barry NEEDS his shield, and that fact that the description doesn't list one is sad.

Just glad to get another villain!

If anybody still has a vintage Clark Kent, The Tick in disguise will make for a great photo op together.

This just makes me really want a non-retro style line of Tick characters. The Ticks vs The Tick might be my favorite episode of the animated series.

Sigh... the Barry Tick figure finally made me breakdown and buy some of these. I grabbed Tick and Barry, plus Grendel and Madman. I may still decide to add Rocketeer. Not sure I need anything else from this first wave. If there are more characters from the Tick in future assortments I won't be able to resist. I don't know if there are a ton more independent comic characters I'd want or need, but I'm a sucker for the Tick.

Here's my wishlist, off the top of my head:

Toxic Crusader, SCUD, Dick Tracy, Green Hornet, The Shield, Magnus: Robot Fighter (Dynamite), Solar Man of the Atom (Dynamite), Conan, America Vasquez (All-America Comics/Image), Rocket Girl (Image), Bandette, Savage Dragon, Nexus, Captain Action, Arthur from The Tick, Flaming Carrot, Dragonflyman (Ahoy), Zot, Kick-Ass (Millarworld), Judge Dredd, Plutonian (Irredeemable), Fighting American, Red Sonja, and/or Ghost (Dark Horse). Valiant characters would also be cool.

Lots of good stuff in there. Savage Dragon, Nexus and Flaming Carrot would all be instant orders. I wouldn't be able to resist Badger either. Oooh,, or Elementals. Man I loved Elementals... sigh.

i tried to hold out and not get the madman variants but im weak and caved.
i look at those troopers and can't stop looking at a lobster johnson in the making.
if any of the people behind this project do pop in and take into consideration some suggestions, i hope the shadow be on their radar. if they do start making caped characters. also, the black beetle by francesco francavilla.

Cassie Hack and Mr. Monster are NEARLY at their MOQ.

If they hit it, people who order the whole wave will get a bonus Airboy figure.

I'm a little late to the party, but I Just watched a great Toy Anxiety video from a few weeks back, guest-starring the Toy Otter himself. There was a great discussion about Super Powers, Longbox Heroes, some insight into McFarlane, and the toy industry in general. It is definitely worth a watch.

Less than 24 hours left in the preorder campaign. They actually funded all of the figures with a MOQ and the 7 figure set is a go with the exclusive (and sure to be rare) Airboy.

I'm curious what the rarest figure in this line will be. Disguise Tick, Barry, the 2 Madman variants, and the recolored Troopers only have runs of 200. But Airboy only ships with 7 figure sets.

Toycollectr magazine has a great first issue. Feature by Pixel Dan, update on Gargoyles with photos of Coldstone, and an interview/preview spotlighting Longbox Heroes.

They revealed the first wave 2 figure that goes up next fall: Savage Dragon.

There's a photo in the magazine.

Yep, I'll order Dragon without seeing a photo. First one I'm in for.
