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.
With DC’s new universe looming above us, they toy companies are still playing catch-up with the last big event. No, not Flashpoint. I’m talking about Brightest Day. Even though Mattel hasn’t quite caught up, DC Direct is pumping out figures like Deadman before they become obsolete.
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. These guys are the last two.
After the SDCC Rainbow Hal horror stories, I'd resolved that I wasn't going to own this particular exclusive. I was okay with that because I only marginally wanted it. But early this month, I was pointed towards Graphitti Designs' website, where it was in stock. You know the rest - marginal interest became solidified want.
