It's time once again to dig out the action figures and look at the coolest new and old toys for the week. There was actually a time that I would go out to different stores looking for those elusive rare figures. These days I just pass by the action figure aisle and see if anything cool is sitting on the shelf.
The first one is a figure from earlier this year but it looks like Mattel is doing the smart thing and stocking different lines of figures at the stores. It was a great moment in the comics and it makes a pretty cool action figure: Sinestro Corps Scarecrow.
In the typical DC Universe lines, Scarecrow comes with a lot of articulation. This makes it easy to pose him in different positions. He comes with a yellow power battery and really looks creepy with those yellow eyes. The detail is pretty cool. He was a figure I had my eye on when first released but I never got around to picking him up until just now.
It turned out Scarecrow had some 'friends' that wanted to join him for this little photo shoot.== TEASER ==
Since Scarecrow was going to be featured, I thought I'd dig out my 1996 'Legends of the Dark Knight' edition. It's actually "Twister Strike Scarecrow" but we'll ignore that part. I'm not a fan of all the yellow on him, it's a bit much but the detail is nice. He also has a little clear red window on top of his head that allows light to shine in and make it look like his eyes are glowing.
Think of this figure as a bonus pick this week.
The last contender is Maestro from the Hulk: Future Imperfect story. Maestro was the future version of the Hulk. It turned out he was a bit of a jerk. He wiped out pretty much all of the heroes. What makes him really cool is all the stuff he comes with. He's wearing his trophies proudly. He doesn't come with a lot of articulation but sometimes figures just don't need that much.
Can you identify all the heroes and villains he defeated and is showing off?
That's it for this week. Be sure to check out our next installment to see what he dig up.
