I know. Apache Chief is late for Apache Chief Week. But he's the star, right? Give the guy some slack!! Okay, it’s really me that needs it! It’s been a difficult week for DC Universe Classics Collectors and it’s been similarly difficult for me to work on these reviews.
It seems Apache Chief Week was just too ginormous to fit into a standard workweek! We’ve got one figure left before we get to the big man himself, a late addition to the Hanna-Barbera Super Friends cartoon and one DC character that I was sure wouldn't get a figure, El Dorado.
If the Super Friends or Geoff Johns versions of classic characters leaves you cold, then DC Universe Classics Wave 18 probably isn’t your favorite, but the wave still has something to offer even the most stalwart DC Classics Collector, one of DC’s most renowned martial artists, Ben Turner, the Bronze Tiger!
Since I did my favorite figure yesterday, I figured I'd get my least favorite figure out of the way today. Had Black Vulcan come out looking more like the 2up, I would've have enjoyed his figure nearly as much as the others, but something went awry between El Segundo and China.
Another DCUC wave has arrived at IAT and that means it’s time for another Theme Week! All week long Vault and I will be taking a look at the figures from DC Universe Classics Wave 18 – the Apache Chief Wave. Today, I’m kicking things off with one my faves, Samurai!
