It's finally time to cap off our DC Classics Wave Thirteen reviews with the C&C himself: Trigon. Upfront, I should admit I'm not his biggest fan, but that's probably more about my lack of familiarity with him than it is the character himself. It helps that he ended up with a nice C&C with just one unfortunate drawback.
This review features a false face, a robot face, a bandaged face, a translucent face, and a skull face. Not impressed? What if we told you this review only features three figures? It's time for Cyclotron, Negative Man, and his unbandaged variant.
This review has got the blues. No, it's not that kind of review. It simply features two of DC's azure-clad characters, Blue Devil & Blue Beetle III, in a tale of extra articulation, the inequities of yellow paint, and a hard decision for our favorite trident carrying blue hero.
If you follow Mattel rumors, DCUC13's lineup had to be rearranged early on. Some say it was because DC asked for certain characters to be held back, but we'll never know for sure. Still, the lineup seems devoid of an A-list play pattern. Superboy has the top spot, but I'm not sure how Donna Troy is supposed to pair off with him.
It took a little longer than usual, but DCUC13 has arrived at IAT! It's been nearly five months since I snagged DCUC12 online. That's a long gap for a line that's supposed to go through five waves a year. Sadly, some of the figures weren't worth the wait. Let's get three of out of the way today: the Cheetahs.
BBTS has placed Wave 13 sets and singles up for pre-order as well as providing images of the figures. I've grouped the images together below and resized them evenly, but scale may not be accurately represented.
I have one nitpick that I have to point out. For Superboy, I hope there is time for Mattel to have the neck/shoulder painted black on the final product. For some fans, it may be a minor thing, but he just doesn't look right with the blue neck.
