I know. Apache Chief is late for Apache Chief Week. But he’s the star, right? Give the guy some slack!! Okay, it’s really me that needs it! It’s been a difficult week for DC Universe Classics Collectors and it’s been similarly difficult for me to work on these reviews.
Out of all the teams in the DC Universe, I never thought the Legion of Doom would be completed before the end of the line. But with the addition of DCUC18’s Toyman we now have a complete roster to go up against their Superfriends counterparts. Our 30 year wait is over!
Captain Boomerang is one of those strange characters that really shouldn’t be popular. He’s the essence of a stereotypical villain with a lame costume, yet he’s able to persevere where other lame characters like Angle Man couldn’t. Even I have to admit I wanted a figure of this crazy Aussie.
If the Super Friends or Geoff Johns versions of classic characters leaves you cold, then DC Universe Classics Wave 18 probably isn’t your favorite, but the wave still has something to offer even the most stalwart DC Classics Collector, one of DC’s most renowned martial artists, Ben Turner, the Bronze Tiger!
Since I did my favorite figure yesterday, I figured I’d get my least favorite figure out of the way today. Had Black Vulcan come out looking more like the 2up, I would’ve have enjoyed his figure nearly as much as the others, but something went awry between El Segundo and China.
Another DCUC wave has arrived at IAT and that means it’s time for another Theme Week! All week long Vault and I will be taking a look at the figures from DC Universe Classics Wave 18 – the Apache Chief Wave. Today, I’m kicking things off with one my faves, Samurai!
