As everyone (hopefully) expected, we’re wrapping up our S.T.R.I.P.E. Week with a look at the big guy. STRIPE & ‘comic accuracy’ don’t belong anywhere near each other in a sentence, but Mattel and the Four Horsemen pulled off a feat, a fantastically inaccurate figure that’s fantastic at the same time.
S.T.R.I.P.E. Week is nearing its conclusion with my review of the last regular figure in the JSA themed wave, the Golden Age version of Hawkman. We’ve been waiting a long time for this particular figure, and he actually turned out pretty well for what's mostly redeco.
I get the last couple normal figure reviews before S.T.R.I.P.E., so I thought I’d kick off today with a look at one of the more interesting villains from the old DC Universe. It may say Lord Naga on his box, but he’s better known as Kobra.
S.T.R.I.P.E. Week has me taking another trip down memory lane today with a look at the Golden Age Atom! He’s not my favorite Justice Society of America member, but as a JSA Fan that’s been waiting forever for a good Al Pratt figure, I’m happy to report this one doesn’t disappoint.
It’s my first review up for S.T.R.I.P.E. Week and I thought I’d kick it off with the surprisingly cool figure of Magog. Although this figure is technically based on a newer character, the original design was one of the more interesting 90’s creations.
S.T.R.I.P.E. Week rolls on, but today I’m jumping ahead, oh… a few decades to a young member of the modern JSA. One of the things I enjoyed most about the late 90s DC offerings was the return of the Justice Society of America and its newest member Courtney Whitmore, a.k.a. Stargirl.
While I enjoyed DCUC18, I’m still of the mindset that DCUC19, with its JSA theme, was a bastion of greatness in an otherwise dull year for DC Classics. Sandwiched between a wave of Geoff Johns’ Rainbow Deputies and Brightest Day figures, the classic characters featured here were a 2011 bright spot.
