New JLU 3-Packs Feature Flash’s Rogues, Plastic Man And….Pants
The folks at The Fwoosh have a sneak peak at some of the upcoming “Justice League Unlimited” action figure three-packs, and it’s safe to say that I’m very pleased with this lineup.
The first collection features Silver Banshee, Heat Vision Superman and the never-before-seen Metallo, complete with T-800 face and ripped up yellow sweater. Kind of a shame to ruin such a nice shirt, but that’s what happens when you’re a killer cyborg with a bone to pick with the Last Son of Krypton, I suppose. The good news, according to The Fwoosh, is that Metallo’s ripped shirt doesn’t hinder the character’s waist mobility. That’s good to hear.
The second lineup features the Flash and two of his most dangerous rogues, Captain Boomerang and Captain Cold. Both bad guys are pretty impressive, particularly regarding the head sculpts. They really look like they were plucked straight out of the JLU cartoons.
The final wave features Plastic Man and Cyborg – both of whom never wound up on the JLU show – and an absolutely awesome Mister Miracle.
If nothing else, these three collections of JLU figures are leaps and bounds better than their recent pantsless colleagues, don’t you think?
Well, I guess Plastic Man’s still of dubious pantage. Ah well, eight of nine isn’t bad.
