I’m still waiting on Wally West to arrive (I’ll explain later), but I still felt like reviewing a DCUC figure to kick off the week. Since the retail line has pretty much abandoned my interests, I only have a couple of recent, non-sub DC figures to choose from. I wanted something
There are figures you really want and then there are figures you inexplicably must have. The classic Penguin is one of those figures for me. I have a lot of wants for the 6” DC line. I want more characters. I want more tooling. And yet here I am geeking out
Guest Review Week III rolls on with a post from Mint Condition Customs! Before we get to the review, let me give a huge shout out to John for suggesting we do Guest Review Week! What we would do without you? Today, MCC gives us a detailed look at a Dark
Classics got its erstwhile start as a Batman line nine years ago. Six years ago, a Batman theme held down every other wave of DCSH. And DC Classics (2008-2011) certainly never strayed too far from Batman & his rogues. With all that Bat-history, it’s inconceivable that we’re just now getting

So, I’m in the middle of three-too-many projects at the moment, but Vault got my attention today with a simple text, “have you seen the new DC figures?” I had no idea what he was talking about. Apparently, new DC & Batman Unlimited figure pics had been circulating all day. Oops!
Initially, I thought I’d be buying this figure as a “generic policeman”. It was cool to get a Joseph Gordon-Levitt figure and all, but who in the heck was John Blake anyway? Speaking of, there could be Dark Knight Rises spoilers, particularly in the comments, please proceed at your own risk.
How do you get a toy collector to buy a second version of a toy he didn’t particularly like? A new, improved deco? That certainly helps. A fun new accessory? Doesn’t hurt. An alternate build a Batsignal piece? Well… damn it. Luckily, the changes to this version make him more palatable.
