The results of the latest ATR poll is in and we have a tie. The next DC Universe Classics action figure ATR readers most wanted to be reviewed next was both Zatanna from Wave 14 and Robin from Wave 16. Well...I'm not doing 2 reviews at once so I'm gonna vote myself. Holy tie breakers, Batman! The next review will be on the original boy wonder himself, Robin. In my opinion, he is by FAR the superior action figure. You will thank me later. And here we go:
It's safe to say that Mattel's DC Universe Classics Wave 16 is heavily loaded with Batman related characters.....which is good (IMO). The bad thing is, in a way, we're not getting that many "new" Batman characters. Only the Creeper. We're still waiting for Mattel to give us Ra's Al Ghul, Poison Ivy, Hush....just to name a few. Instead of new Batman characters (besides Creeper), we're getting different versions of Riddler, Robin, Azrael and Bane, all who we've seen before either in the DCUC toy line or the previous DC Superheroes toy line. The good thing is, they are not just repaints. They are new Riddler, Robin, Azrael and Bane are super cool versions and well worth getting for any Batman collector.
Compared to other DCUC action figures which stand on average at about 6 3/4 inches tall, Robin, since he is only a teenager, is a bit shorter, standing at about 6 inches even which is perfect. He looks just right next to the Classic Batman from DCUC wave 1.
