DC Universe Classics - Killer Moth

Next up for review is the DC Universe Classics wave 6 action figure of Killer Moth by Mattel.

Of all the DCUC action figures so far, the Killer Moth character has got to rank right up there with Amazo as having one of the lamest costumes. Of course this is not Mattel or the Four Horseman's fault. The action figure is a great likeness of the comic book character. So lets not fault the toy for that reason.

One thing that stands out from the other DCUC action figures are Killer Moths wings. Unlike DCUC wave 6 Hawkman however, Killer Moths wings are not adjustable and have no extra joints.

The sculpt uses a lot of familiar body parts which we've seen on many other DCUC figures before. New of course are the wings and the head sculpt. The belt also supports a loop like holster for his weapon.

Killer Moths paint job is pretty good despite the ugly costume colors. Everything is painted with in the lines with no real visable smudging or slop.

As mentioned, Killer Moth comes with hand gun which fits nicely into either hand or into the loop on the side of his belt.

Killer Moth also has all the same standard articulation points and most other DCUC toys which allows for some pretty cool posing. There are joints in the neck, shoulders, biceps, elbows, wrists, abdominal, waist, hips, thighs, knees and ankles. As mentioned above, there are no additional joints in his wings (booooo!).

Despite the butt ugly costume supported by the Killer Moth character, this action figure is tip-top. A great rendition of the character and a worth action figure purchase.

Sculpt/Design - 9, Paint - 9, Accessories - 6, Articulation - 9, Fun - 8
Overall Score - 8.5/10
Looking for DCUC Killer Moth? Best place to find him is eBay in my opinion. Just make sure you know what shipping costs you're paying.
