A quick shout-out to my brother Chris, who has posted several pictures, and the first review that I have seen, of the new DC Universe Classics action figure line over at fwoosh:

Overall impressions: A great start of things to come. You can see from this first wave the potential that exists within this line. Mattel’s plan is to produce 5 waves per year for the next 5 years and then possibly more from there if they renew their contract with DC. Mattel has addressed a couple of the issues I had with the DC Superheroes line. The neck articulation is spot on and all the joints have great range of motion.

Collecting all the figures in the wave allows fans to build their own Metamorpho figure. Future plans for the DC Classics line include a “Gorilla Grodd” series featuring figures of Superman and Firestorm, and a “Solomon Grundy” line with Hal Jordan and Sinestro.
