This week's DC Universe Classics review will be on one of the Wave 9 action figure, Deadshot.
Deadshot is probably one of the coolest of the B list Batman rogues and Im glad that Mattel decided to give us this action figure as the DC Direct version just didn't cut it.
Deadshot's sculpt is similar to most of the standard body parts we've seen on other DCUC action figures with some slight modifications to individualize this toy from the others.
Deadshot's weapons are included as part of the sculpt on each arm. The paint job is very good aswell with not perfect but fairly clean paint lines.
Since Deadshots weapons are attached to his arms, Mattel saw no need to give us any additional accessories for this character (other than the standard CnC piece of Chemo). It would have been nice if they loaded up Deadshot with weapons as they did with Deathstroke from wave three but what are you gonna do?
Articulation is standard compared to the majority of Mattel's DCUC action figures. All the right joint in all the right places. If it works, why mess with it? No complaints in this department.
Overall Deadshot is a welcome addition to the DC Universe Classics collection. Especially for Batman fans. We can always use more Batman rogues for our collection (hint hint Mattel. give us more - Ra's Al Ghul, Poison Ivy etc..).
Sculpt/Design - 8.5, Paint - 8.5, Accesories - 0, Articulation - 9, Fun - 7
Deadshot is part of the not so widely released DC Universe Classics Wave 9 set. Unfortunately, a lot of people found it very hard to get their hands on figures from this set. Always turn to your friends at eBay if you can't find these awesome action figures. Chances are, someone has bought them all up from your local Wal-Mart and is selling them there. Since wave 11 and 12 are the main focus of buyers right now, you'll probably get a reasonable deal on these wave 9 figures.
