We were running a bit behind on DC Universe Classics Wave 20 reviews throughout last week and, as a result, Nekron sorta fell into the week after. Better late than never, I guess? Nekron is going to be a tough review for me as I don’t particularly care about the figure.
The last regular figure in DC Universe Classics Wave 20 is my figure to review, and I think he might just be the best figure in the entire wave. If nothing else, this version of Green Arrow is one last taste of how good DC Classics
I have no idea what I’m going to say in this review. I really enjoyed DC Universe Classics over the years, warts and all. So much so that I’m a bit disenchanted with the prospect of wrapping up my reviews on the original line with a figure like White Lantern Flash.
We’re rounding the bend of Nekron week with a look at the DC Universe Classics modern version of Roy Harper, the Red Arrow. Although the figure may not look it, Roy’s character has been through some pretty rough times, especially in the last few years.
If anything lets us know that the line ended, it’s this Sinestro. He’s essentially an apology figure. The original Sinestro figure was famously craptacular and it took Mattel nearly three years to make a corrected version. But that original figure had a variant, leaving one more error for Mattel to correct.
Like Noisy, I’m not really into DC Classics wave twenty. I know the line will continue through the sub, but it seems like a lackluster way to end a generally good run. Of course my feelings are also compounded by the loss of the true universe.
Nekron Week is running a little behind. DC Universe Classics Wave 20 has been a difficult assortment to review. It’s my least favorite wave. It featured the only C&C I didn’t want. It ends the line. Ugh. To combat all that, I’m kicking off with my favorite DCUC20 figure: the Reverse-Flash!
Though I took a pass on the Series IV figures, I knew I wasn’t done with DC Direct’s Blackest Night line. I’ve been tempted, but steered clear of picking up a Black Lantern JLA. I’m sticking to the oversized aliens not likely to get DCUC love. Nekron offers some flexibility with his size and I’ve opted to pick up DCD’s version.
DC Direct solicits hit the ‘net today and there were a few surprises for Blackest Night fans.
