I have always loved the Falcon's classic look. His very first costume was all right, but when he added the wings and changed the color scheme to red and white, he became one of the coolest looking superheroes around. I remember I used to have a Falcon Mego action figure and the costume looked really cool there, too (unlike the Human Torch for instance, who had red long johns with flames printed on them). I don't think Mego ever made a Hawkman figure - the bulky wings were probably an issue I guess. It would have been cool to see how they would have done the helmet.
