DC Universe Classics - Kalibak

Okay, its been a while since I last posted. Sorry to all yourso I've decided its finally time to finish off my review of the 6th wave of Mattel's DC Universe Classics action figures. The final figure to be reviewed for this series is the collect and connect figure Kalibak.

Kalibak is big, but not as big as some recent collect and connect figures. He stands about 7.25 inches tall. Basically as tall as DCSH Darkseid, but much thicker.

The sculpt itself is pretty good. Plenty of detail in the face and his costume.

As far as paint goes, its good but not stellar. There are a lot of small areas on my figure where the paint bleeds a little. One area is around the mount where Kalibak's skin color bleeds on to his teeth. There are a few other similar spots here in there but for the most part, its a very good job.

Some C&C figures don't come with accessories but Kalibak does come with a giant mace. It only fits in one of his hands as the other is a closed fist however, there is a spot on his costume where the mace can click on to if you don't want him holding it.

Kalibak's articulation is generally the same as most DCUC action figures. Joints include the neck, shoulders, biceps, elbows, forearms, abdominal, waist, hips, thighs, knees and ankles.

Overall, Kalibak is what we've come to expect from this toy line. No surprises here, generally a good action figure which will fit well with the rest of your DC Universe Classics collection.

Sculpt - 9, Paint, 7.5, Accessories, 7, Articulation - 9, Fun - 9
Overall score : 8.5/10

If you want to buy DCUC Kalibak but don't want the other action figures from wave 6, then the best thing for you to do is check out ebay. You may find him in the 30-50 range on his own. Otherwise, spend the 70-80 bucks plus shipping and buy the complete set.
