DC Universe Classics - Mr. Miracle

Up next for review from the DC Universe Classics wave 6 set of action figures is Mr. Miracle.

To buy Mattel's DC Universe Classics, Mr. Miracle on eBay, click here.

This is another great figure from Mattel's DCUC series. The sculpt is true to the classic look of Mr. Miracle.

You will notice the reusing of body parts compared to other figures but Mattel does a good job of giving Mr. Miracle his own individuality starting with a great head sculpt, to his cape and belt.

The cape itself isn't super heavy but heavy enough that if Mr. Miracle is leaning to far backwards it will topple him over.

The paint job is actually pretty good. There are little spots here and there where there is a little smudging but over everything is relatively painted within the lines so to speak. The one thing that I'm not too crazy about is the red paint wash over the yellow sections of his abdominal and arms. Mattel has done this with other characters that have yellow in their costume and I've never been fond of that combination, Red Tornado from DCUC series 1 for example.

As far as accessories go, Mr. Miracle comes with a set of binders that go around his forearms, 2 flying disks that attach to the bottom of his feet and one mother box which is attached to the back of his belt underneath his cape. Its very well hidden actually and I didn't even notice it until after i took the pictures. The unfortunate thing about the mother box is that it doesn't fit into either of his hands as they are both close fists.

Mr. Miracle's articulation is really no different than 95% of the other action figures from this toy series. Joints included are neck, shoulders, biceps, elbows, wrists, abdominal, waist, hips, thighs, knees and ankles. Can't complain about that selection.

Overall, Mr. Miracle is another great addition by Mattel to the DC Universe Classics collection. Great sculpt and paint job, plenty of accessories and lots of fun.
Sculpt/Design - 8.5, Paint - 8, Accessories - 9, Articulation - 9, Fun - 8.5
Overall Score: 8.5/10
As usual, I recommend buying these figures from eBay if you cannot find them at your local toy store. If you can find a good seller who combines shipping costs, its also best to buy multiple figures at one time from him/her if you are looking for more than one character.
