    Yes! I received my Flash and Ming a little while ago and forgot to post!

    If people are interested, I was just at my local Target and they had gobs of them!

    I absolutely LOVE the retro-presentation of these figures... I decided to buy another set to keep MOC because they look so good! (And man, these cards are durable as heck! -and BIG!)

    It made go back and rewatch season one of the Filmation series... so much goodness there!

    So, I have been fooling around with these Ming and Flash figures for awhile now, and I have to say that this is some of the best QC I've ever seen from Neca.

    They have been getting progressively better with every new release (I haven't had any issue within the past few years), but I know a lot of people had problems with the initial batch of the Defenders of the Earth figures...

    Well, I can most definitely say that Neca has really perfected this "superhero" buck and mine are sturdy, well-painted, and tight with a great range of motion!

    I really hope that Neca can continue to get more obscure comic-type licenses in the near future!!

    When you finally get your hands on them, post your thoughts about the quality... I am just really happy with the set I opened. Zero issues at all... I'm not even slightly afraid of swapping out hands or bending any of their joints. These guys are solid!

    Just got the Mattel-homage Flash and Ming. Didnt realize the cards were going to be so thick. That's great for MOC collectors.
    I wonder how likely it is that Neca will make some of the other characters? I can see them using the Goliath and Demona bucks for Thun and Lizard Woman.

    I would kill for an entire homage set!

    Thun, Arak, and Lizard Woman could reuse a lot of parts... Neca would have to create a new body for Vultan and Zarkov, but they've almost got that base covered too because Gargoyles Hudson is almost just like Vultan!


    I wouldn't say no to an exclusive Dale Arden and Princess Aura either!

    Yeah, BBTS sent me an email about these a while ago... I went ahead and preordered them (even though I've been waiting FOREVER to receive the Flash Gordon Hero H.A.C.K.S. and King Comics Super Heroes Mini Figures!! Both from Boss Fight Studios as well...)

    It would still be cool if NECA could do Jedda, Rick, LJ, Kshin and maybe some Men of Frost and Ice Robots.
    Even some variants like how they appeared in the "Roots Of Evil" episode.

    100% agree!

    The Defenders of the Earth will always be incomplete until we get the children, the next generation of Defenders.

    And, yes, we definitely need more bad guys...

    Kurt Walker a.k.a. The Weather Demon



    Astra



    Prince Krotan

    All excellent choices, especially N'Dama the Weather Demon/Kurt Walker. I actually still have the story book of A House Devided I got at the school book fair when I was about 6 or 7 years old.
    A few days ago I seen some of the episode Family Reunion and was thinking how cool a figure of N'Dama would be on the NECA buck.

    Astra and Krotan would definitely make very cool figures.

    A Jedda in the Phantom costume would also be quite cool.

    Probably unlikely but a Mongor like the vintage toy would be really nice.

    I saw about 10 Phantoms at Walmart today. Don't have a clue why there was no other characters but there was 4 pegs full of the Phantom in the electronics area.

    Shogoth, would be awesome. I believe "A Demon In His Pocket" was the first epiosde I ever saw of Defenders of the Earth.
    He could be a big figure and come with a small version of himself.

    Yeah, Shogoth would be excellent! So would the other DotE badguy with horns and a whip, I am forgetting his name...



    And, we should get:

    A more "innocent" version of Princess Aura:

    Pre-ordered mine! Glad we're finally getting Mandrake and Lothar. Would love to see the kids released some day as well.

    I got Phantom, but was a bit disappointed in him... switched him out with the new 'original heroes' line... but Mandrake is one I want bad. Sucks BBTS doesn't have a solo of him on preorder... just the 3 pack.


    On a separate note... what is the Lore behind Lothar? I know the old school heroes of Phantom, Flash and a bit of Mandrake... but Lothar was always a wild card I never heard of before DoE...

    Lothar is from Mandrake's comic strip.

    In the comic strip, he was Mandrake's best friend, traveling companion and ally in crimefighting. He's a Prince of a tribal confederation in Africa and is reputed to be the strongest man in the world (allegedly his biggest feat of strenght was lifting an elephant, but he performed many feats of strength in the comics). In the comics he's also highly resistant to injury and to magic, which makes him a great aide for Mandrake. He began as a much more stereotyped character in Mandrake's debut in 1934. At first he was strictly a sidekick. He spoke broken English, was stronger than he was smart, and was always drawn in leopard skins and wearing a fez. He served as muscle for Mandrake and to also complicate matters (as sidekicks do in adventure strips).

    After Mandrake's second artist - Fred Fredericks - took over in 1965, Lothar was revamped. He spoke normal English and wore more typical 60s clothes (favoring leopard print shirts as a sole nod to his old self) and was treated as more of a full partner in adventure for Mandrake. Lothar was one of two main support characters for Mandrake in the strips (the other being Princess Narda, Mandrake's love interest). That said, like many strips, there are many re-occurring characters that helped or went against Mandrake but none to the same level as Lothar.
