Confession time. I saved this review for last as far as actually doing the write up and pics. Why, Jim? Why? What do you have against the Catman? Nothing at all. He’s just boring compared to the other three guys. Sorry Peter but it is what it is. Still love you though.
The sculpt is great! Mego completely dropped the ball with the repurposed Lex Luthor head back in the day and as such the first series fell on this dagger as well. I don’t fault FTC for that considering their goal was to offer reproductions of that line. In that they nailed it. For this new line however they did the right thing in again reaching out to The Farrow to create a brand new sculpt. The only detractor to this head is the hair. But as I’ve stated in my review of Ace, this is forgivable considering the production process, scale and cost. Plus everything else about it is so very right even if it is a bit boring.
To clarify, when I say boring I don’t mean that in a negative way at all. This is a very well made figure. The costume is really simple and clean. The quality of the boots are top shelf. But that’s about it. Nothing else really jumps out at me. Again nothing bad to say and I can easily say you should get this figure without reservation. But then again having one and not all four is just out of balance.
But that’s about that. Unlike his counterparts I don’t have a drum set for him but that may change in the future. I’ll keep you posted.
Now, Go Play!
