ItsAllTrueReview: DC Classics – Darkseid & Desaad

So yeah, I wasn't looking forward to DCUC12 back when the photos were leaked. Desaad, I was happy with, but Darkseid was a different story. It's not that there was anything wrong with the figure, I just let myself get excited thinking it might be more true to the Super Powers version. I started to think about the cape, the medallion, and the general look of the Super Powers figure. Y'know, the one that got me interested in Darkseid in the first place and that’s what I started hoping to get. I love that version. When I read Darkseid’s appearances in the comics, I still hear Frank Welker's deep, husky Darkseid voice.*

A Wave of Doubt (DCUC12)

Toy collecting can be a strange endeavor for me. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. I imagine there are a variety of factors involved. There’s the joy of finding the latest stuff, usually after a fair amount of frustration caused by not finding it up to that point. There’s the satisfaction of placing an entire collection together tempered by adding up the cost of everything still to come in the next few weeks. Particularly, though, how I feel towards any line seems to come and go in waves.

Truetorial: Collect & Connect
Darkseid is a Tall Order

This is ItsAllTrue.Net's first Truetorial feature. Truetorials will be op/ed columns that discuss a particular topic in-depth. This column was one of the first things we wanted to do here at ItsAllTrue, but the website has had other plans for us and we're happy to follow where it leads. But we've got some time now that the convention season is wrapping up and we thought it was time to give the Truetorial a spin. We're not ready to give it a regular day yet, but if we like it, you should be seeing them on a regular basis. Just think of them as a kinder, gentler companion piece to Tuesday's Mr. Rant.
