|Comments: Released in late spring of 2009, the eighth wave of Mattel’s DC Universe Classics line gave toy buyers the opportunity to Collect & Connect a properly proportioned figure based on Giganta. This wave featured seven characters including Commander Steel, Dr. Fate, Gentleman Ghost, Hawkgirl, Mr. Terrific, Parademon, and Vigilante. As is now customary to the collection, there were two relevant chase figure variations including two unique versions of Jack Kirby’s Parademons. The standard version pays homage to the 1980’s Super Powers red version, while the chase variant harkens back to Kirby’s original design. The other Chase figure is a World War II costume variant of Dr. Fate. Of the seven figures in the wave, only six include Collect & Connect pieces; Hawkgirl only includes a figure display stand. The peg on this stand is scaled to the regular figures, and not the Collect & Connect figure.
