Intereview > Cyborg (DC Universe Classics)

In the early 1980s, the New Teen Titans were DC Comics’ answer to Marvel’s enormously successful X-Men, and both series sold very well. One of the new Titans introduced during that era was Cyborg. After an accident in which Victor Stone’s mad scientist father accidentally released a gelatinous extradimensional horror that killed Victor’s mother and […]

Intereview – Wonder Woman (DC Universe Classics)

Welcome to the latest installment of my week-long series of “intereviews” with the line-up of the fourth wave of DC Universe Classics. My guest today is the bold and beautiful Princess Diana, a.k.a. Wonder Woman. WW: Thank you. Thank you, Princess. And let me add that it’s great to finally have the third member of […]

Review > Movie Masters Batpod

Every knight needs his trusty steed–even a Dark Knight. As I’ve related twice already, I had the good fortune to find the Target-exclusive Movie Masters Batpod over the weekend, just a couple days after the first few sightings across the country. I don’t think I can stress enough how unlikely it is to find a […]

On DC Direct’s History of the DC Universe

While the line’s existence was announced months ago, DC Direct raised a few eyebrows this week when it released the first photos of its upcoming “History of the DC Universe” line. Inspired by the 1986 book by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, the figures are based on Perez’s art. The figures appear to share certain […]

Odds ‘n Ends > Dream Warriors

ODD: I still can’t believe I found a Batpod on my first try. I still haven’t seen a single DCUC4 figure anywhere. I’m going to briefly interrupt the DCUC4 reviews for a Batpod review this week–BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT!!! And also to hopefully head off any other reviewers.

Intereview > Batman Beyond (DC Universe Classics)

Welcome back to my week-long series of “intereviews” with the members of DC Universe Classics Wave 4. For those unfamiliar with the format, I basically pretend the figures are real and “interview” them, sneaking in my review in the process. Writing genius or borderline psychosis? You decide! My guest today is Batman Beyond. BB, you’re […]

Intereview > Captain Atom (DC Universe Classics)

Welcome to the first of a week of “intereviews” with the members of DC Universe Classics Wave 4. My first guest is Captain Atom. Captain, please tell us a little about yourself. Certainly. I was originally created by Charlton Comics in 1960. I was working on an experimental rocket when it exploded, atomizing my body […]

MM Batpod in the house

After reading that the Movie Masters Batpod had been found in Connecticut, I decided to check around here. When a search of three different Targets proved fruitless, I was ready to give up and head home–until Dr. Mrs. Ghostal suggested we check one last one (the Quincy Target, just off 93 South). After taking the […]

Post #322

I’m working on a week’s worth of what I’m going to call “intereviews” (clever, no?) of DCUC Wave Four, so instead I’ll just point you to a few things I found interesting over the last few days.

New poll

I’d like to direct your attention to the poll on the sidebar menu. Please take five seconds to answer it. I’ve been considering a change in the way I put up posts here on the site–switching from a single daily, longer article-type piece to a more frequent series of smaller toy-related “dispatches” (with the occasional […]
