Remember Young Justice? That cartoon on Cartoon Network some months ago that showed nine of its ten episodes and then abruptly disappeared in a typical CN vanishing act? Robin? Superboy? Kid Flash? Ringing a bell? Maybe? Well, that cartoon’s tie-in merchandise has finally reached store shelves and that means review time…
With Swamp Thing being available on Mattycollector later today, I figured I’d rush his review to the front of the line. I didn’t want to write a negative review about Swamp Thing, and I didn’t, but this article isn’t exactly glowing. Still, here it is, with the positives and the negatives.
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.
It’s been a little over two months since “Armless Stel” Week concluded here at IAT. I had the rare opportunity to pick up the wave at retail before it was available online and I jumped at it, but the lone Star Sapphire I found was particularly subpar. Little did I
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,
