We were running a bit behind on DC Universe Classics Wave 20 reviews throughout last week and, as a result, Nekron sorta fell into the week after. Better late than never, I guess? Nekron is going to be a tough review for me as I don’t particularly care about the figure.
I have no idea what I’m going to say in this review. I really enjoyed DC Universe Classics over the years, warts and all. So much so that I’m a bit disenchanted with the prospect of wrapping up my reviews on the original line with a figure like White Lantern Flash.
With both DC Direct & Mattel producing (roughly) 6″ figures, I’m often faced with the temptation of mixing the two lines together. Sometimes it works seamlessly and other times not so much. DC Direct beat Mattel to last year’s breakout character: Mera and I again find myself searching for some
For some collectors, DC Universe Classics Wave 17 proved to a bit of a gauntlet. While the six regular figures were all story specific, some appearing for only a panel, & not highly demanded characters, the Collect & Connect was someone many collectors had been waiting years for: the Anti-Monitor.
Geez, we’re filling up the front page on one day’s worth of articles! As I mentioned earlier, Anti-Monitor week is running a little long, but I’m still plugging away. Tonight, I’ve got a quick review of the last regular figure in DC Universe Classics Wave 17: Blue Lantern Flash. Yeah,
Anti-Monitor Week rolls along (and is looking at a wee bit of an extension) with a look at this wave’s one female figure (shoulda been two, Mattel!): Star Sapphire Wonder Woman. She’s gonna be a little difficult for me to review, there’s really nothing all that objectionable about her, but
Scarecrow technically hasn’t had a proper DC Universe Classics figure. Sure, there’s the old DC Superheroes figure from long ago (and I do like that one), but this Scarecrow figure makes me realize that we need a new one. Yeah, Sinestro Corps (Yellow Lantern?) Scarecrow is that cool.
Anti-Monitor Week rolls on with a review of Lex Luthor during his brief stint as an Orange Lantern Deputy. Normally, I wouldn’t be too excited for this particular figure. Two things though: orange is one of my favorite colors. And I love translucent figures. Now, if only I enjoyed crazy,
Was there a character you’ve been wanting from DC Classics only to be disappointed by the figure? Old Fogey Alan Scott maybe? Uni-boob Starfire? It can be maddening when a figure you wanted doesn’t come out well. Indigo Atom isn’t one of those. No, he’s a figure you prolly don’t
I found this review particularly difficult to write. Some figures you love right away, some figures make you love them, some figures just fill out the shelf a bit (or came with a critical C&C piece), and some figures you buy only because you maintain a DC Universe Classics Checklist.
Earlier this week, Mattel released images of the DC Universe Classics Wave 17. This wave stirred up a lot of controversy when it was announced, so how it sells in the next few weeks will be interesting. I’m buying because I want to build the Anti-Monitor and, hey,
We really appreciated Prince Adam receiving unique head, but I’d like to see him with a laughing head as he was prone to a chuckle or two during his Filmation days. Are there any plans to ever revisit Adam (to fix his vest) and, if so, would a new expression head be possible
