SDCC'11: DC Universe Series 20 & More

Like Hasbro with their Marvel Legends, Mattel was Comic-Con was showing off their DC Universe Classics with the reveal of Series 20, and the announcement of their Mattycolletor Club Infinite Earths subscription and exclusive figures. Let's checkout DC Universe Classics Series 20:

Dove: She was recently important in Blackest Night and Brightest Day so not surprised. Personally I hope we see Don Hall the original Dove down the road.
Hawk: Obvious addition since Dove is here. Sculpt looks great, could be a little bigger though.
Green Arrow (Modern): Now he's a surprise, but totally welcome. Sculpt looks dead on, even better the DC Direct detail.
Red Arrow: YES! Right of my wishlist to make the 2006 JLA roster.
Reverse Flash: No surprise with Flashpoint going on, and about time if you ask me. Stoked they included the lightning rod from Flash: Rebirth
Collect-n-Connect Nekron: The big baddie mastermind behind Blackest Night, and an addition to the Black Lanterns, I'm behind it.
White Lantern Flash and Sinestro Corps Sinestro was also announced to be in Series 20 but are said to be revealed at New York Comic-Con in October.

The Flash (Jay Garrick), Atrocitus, and Starman (Thom Kallor) are going to be Mattycollector online store exclusive singles in 2012. Which I don't think is a bad idea, as long as their not too expensive. I definitely want all three of these guys, Jay and Thom for the Justice Society, and Atrocitus to lead the Red Lanterns, can't wait.

Also Arkham City Harley Quinn, Joker and Robin were revealed, Harley appears to be a single card release in the Batman Legacy series, while Joker and Robin are packaged as a two-pack.
