    I don't think it exists honestly. I've got a the variant Dr. Fate (and I've seen it about seven more times), but the cape and hands are always yellow still. I just don't think the 'running change' was ever made.

    I'm going to agree with you on this. It may show up in the All-Star line down the road, but I don't think it exists.

    Agreed. Mattel claimed it was done in one of the Q&As many months ago, but we all know they either don't research their answers or just lie outright.

    Pretty sure he lives with Cobblepot's robo-penguin, modern Red Tornado, and corrected-gloves modern Booster in Vaporware Land.

    Damn, I had forgotten about the all gold Fate. Just another instance of Mattel telling us exactly what we want to hear so we'll shut up.

    :peoples:  What?

    You're right, I did. Never paid much attention to that one -- Harley's fine to me as-is.

    That's actually the first I've heard of a white-faced Harley. I also think she's great as-is and Mr. J never looked better with her hanging off of him.

    Oh yeah, it was more like a spear and a mace IIRC.

    Ok, now I remember that. You're right, it's all very Witch King-ish.

    Hmm. That'd be cool for them to do him as an All-Star later and give us all Gold finally. I won't hold my breath for it, but I'd like to see it. At this point though I think I'm just going to buy some matching Citadel Paints and paint the gloves and cape myself.

    Well, they did claim that the robo-penguin was cut for costs at the time. They may be able to do him now (considering the production for Cobblepot's been done now), but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Though Mattel keeps claiming at this point that they'd like to find a way to get modern Red Tornado out. The only way I can see them doing that is if they release him as an All-Star.

    I didn't even know about there being problems with modern Booster's gloves. Seeing as I've got one what's the corrected version supposed to be.

    Yes, was very disappointed that we didn't see those extra weapons. Cut for cost like Cobblepot's robot penguin I assume.

    Yeah, never did see that running change either. Though, that one doesn't bother me as I thought she looked fine as is.

    Oh, what was the deal with Batman Beyond's cape getting cut? Was that cost or did they just think he looked better without it? Frankly, I think he looks better without it...

    I still would love a Modern JLA 5-pack...well, then when RT was talked about.

    - Modern Red Tornado
    - Red Arrow- Green Arrow repaint with new head.
    - Modern Hal Jordan
    - Vixen
    - Geo-Force or Kendra Saunders Hawkgirl.

    Such an easy 5-pack to make.

    I'd buy that pack. I don't really care for Geo-force or Vixen, but I would LOVE to get a modern Hal Jordan. We could have had one from the get-go, but they had to the Super Powers version first. Blegh.

    The blue and gold should be swapped. The promotional prototype photos showed it correctly, I believe.

    :( 

    I've been wanting a Geo-Force figure for ages. And that DCD one didn't do the trick.
