DC Universe Classics - Hawkman

After a week long absence its finally time to start the reviews on Mattel's DC Universe Classics wave 6 action figures. For today's review, we will look at Hawkman.

There are some re-using of body parts in this toy line yes, but the main difference between Hawkman and the other DCUC characters is obviously that he has a set of very adjustable wings on his back. The sculpt itself is really good. One disappointing thing is that his helmet is not removable.

The wings on his back are not heavy at all and do not weigh him back unlike some capes on other action figures from this line. The design overall is really nice with a lot of detail in the wings on his back and helmet.

For the most part the paint job is fairly clean. The wings have some dry brushing and shading to bring out the layers of feathers.

The one main area where the paint job is lacking (on my figure anyways) is around Hawkman's ear. The shin color is overlaps quite badly here. Other than that spot, overall Hawkman's got a pretty good paint job.

Hawkman comes with 3 additional accessories (not including the Collect and Connect piece of Kalabak). He comes with a mace which fits kind of loosely in his hand. A sword which fits much better. And finally a shield with the hawk symbol on it.

Hawkman's articulation is really good. Better than most DCUC figures if you count the joints in his wings. His joints include neck, shoulders, biceps, elbows, wrists, abdominal, waist, hips, thighs, knees, ankles and then 4 joints in his wings (2 on each side).

Overall Hawkman is a really cool action figure. He comes with a lot of accessories and the adjustable wings make him great to display. Worth a pick up for sure!

Sculpt/Design - 8.5, Paint - 9, Accessories - 10, Articulation - 9.5, Fun - 9
Overall Score - 9/10
If you can't find Hawkman at your local toy store, there are many online retails that will have this figure for a short period of time. Ebay is always my favorite option.
