> Does anyone have any idea why the Superman/Batman Public Enemies Hawkman figure is so huge, so far out of scale with any other figure in that series?

I don't. But I've noticed that the figures in the COIE line aren't in scale either. That's one of the reasons that I passed on them.

What is COIE? I can usually figure out those initials but not this time. Crisis on Infinite Earths? The Power Girl figure is great, but the rest of them cry out for a trash bag. Mongul and Darkside are good sculpts and to scale (finally), unless I'm thinking of a different series.

I love the Hawkman figure because it's the first time I've seen a DC character painted, the way he is drawn, with body hair. I understand why DC fudges female figures because that way parents will buy them for their kids. DC is finally sculpting female bodies the way they are drawn -- is it okay in comic books but not in action figures? -- notably Infinite Crisis Power Girl.

Red Sun is sculpted and painted the way it is drawn, more's the pity.
