Do you know where you were when Mattel announced these 3pks? Do you even remember when it was? At SDCC? In ToyFare magazine? I don’t even remember anymore. I just remember Mattel seeing them and being excited about finally getting Cheetah, to get another shot at Shade, a Warhawk, a new Batman Beyond, and most importantly, Old Bruce. I’d been waiting for that figure since 1999. Little did I know that it was going to be more than a year before I’d actually find one.
Continuing our efforts to complete our DC Classics Review Archive, we're making the Retro Review our regular Wednesday feature. This week we're taking a look at DC Classics Wave Four, the Despero Wave.
