Note: this review will be for three of the four figures in the Lobo wave: Kingdom Come Superman, Kid Flash, and the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern. I’ve yet to find the fourth figure, a comic based Batman Beyond, but once I do I’ll add my thoughts on him and the then completed Lobo Collect & Connect figure to this thread. Onward!
Kingdom Come Superman:
A long awaited figure for some, this Superman of a dystopian era finally sees life in six inch scale plastic form from Mattel. He is now Mattel’s second Kingdom Come Superman figure, after the one found in series two of the single bagged DC Super Friends figures from Mattel’s Imaginext brand.
The sculpt is quite nice. Superman has a bit of age to his face as a KC Superman in this scale should, although not quite to the extent of DC Direct’s iteration. That can be excused here, as I don’t believe Mattel was going for a figure that bears likeness to Alex Ross’s artwork the way DC Direct was.
Paint on the head is adequate and well done for the rest of the body. His hair doesn’t have the pronounced white temples but a decent amount of white paint is lightly applied in other areas of his hair. The white temples would’ve been nice, but what’s there gets the job done.
Accessories are light but appropriate as Superman comes with two interchangeable flight hands, both of which snap in and out very easily. He also comes with Lobo’s upper torso and necklace.
The articulation is great. Swivel head, ball jointed shoulders, an crunch, waist, ball jointed legs, double jointed knees and front to back ankles. Plenty of movement to get Superman into great poses.
