I've avoided buying too many Marvel Universe figures for one reason or another over the last couple years. I bought a few at first, but they didn't win me over. Lately though, the line has been getting harder and harder to resist. In the last couple weeks, I've picked up a few more and been much happier with the figures.
Continuing our series of Retroviews as we work to complete our DC Classics Review Archive, today we bring you DC Classics Wave 6, the Kalibak Wave.
Wave six first hit retail at the very end of 2008 and became more available over the first few months of 2009. The set reviewed here showed up at a Wal-Mart in early January. That Wal-Mart had never carried DC Classics before and didn't receive another case until the fall reset. While I was lucky enough to run across my wave six locally, all of the other IAT staffers had to make toy runs to a remote Wal-Mart about 45 minutes north of here throughout the Winter - it was the only one within an hour that maintained pegs for DC Classics. That was indicative of the odd distribution of wave six, at least, at first.
