I haven’t had time to gather up the review links of late (man, that’s gonna be one massive list…), but how about we toss a brief review into the Friday mix to make up for it? Today, I’ve got a quick look at Mattel’s version of Phantom Stranger, the February Club Infinite Earths figure.
Two St. Walker’s walk into a bar… ah, I forget the rest. Some collectors consider the overlap in character selection between DC Direct & Mattel to be a joke, but I try to look on the bright side - it's an opportunity to choose the better of two figures. Too bad neither company makes that choice easy.
DC Comics has got a slew of characters that wear boring ol’ suits. Mattel has a figure subscription specifically targeted at collectors. When Mattel announced Club Infinite Earths, I was excited at the prospect of getting some boring ol’ suit figures. Black Mask wasn’t on the top of my list though.
Last week was a little light on reviews, so it seems fitting we kick things into high gear this week with Reviewapalooza II! Our second foray into the mad world of double reviews will feature over a dozen figures between today & Saturday. Let’s kick off with Club Infinite Earths Starman!
Every once in awhile, time just gets away from me. I didn’t realize how long I’d had Atrocitus sitting here when a reader asked me to not skip Atrocitus last week. I was always planning on reviewing him, but somehow he snuck past my sense of urgency. Let’s check him out.
Amid the excitement over the possibility of the DKR
Batman utilizing a MOTUC buck, I was privately getting worried that we were setting ourselves up. Unable to determine scale, I thought we might just be looking at a new "chunky" DC buck. I'm happy to report that my concerns were unfounded.
