DC Universe Classics Wave 17
« on: December 22, 2010, 07:36 PM »
Wave 17 has been revealed.

http://www.dccollectoruniverse.com/2010/12/dc-universe-classics-wave-17-revealed-rainbow-lanterns/

The series looks good enough, but DC Direct either has recently released or will soon release every figure here with the exception of Anti-Monitor.  I have a feeling these aren't going to be flying off the shelves.

Pretty sweet, although I can see why DC Direct collectors might be more "meh" about it.  Like many, I really enjoyed everything Blackest Night (and GL), so I think this wave is pretty cool.  I'm sure some might not be huge fans of the whole wave being GL-based (much like the Batman heavy waves), and would crave more variety, but overall the figures look pretty nice.  I've been getting more selective with DCUC purchases, but this (along with Wave 16) are two that I'll likely be getting the whole wave.  Now if we could get a DCUC Larfleeze, I'd be one happy camper.

I would have preferred atrocitus and other lanterns but I am down with this wave.

I wasn't too keen on the Rainbow Lantern wave when the rumors first started, but after seeing the pics, I might bite.  Scarecrow is a definite.  I think there's going to be a lot of people buying this wave just for Anti-Monitor.

The figs are well done, but although I enjoyed Blackest Night I have no real interest in this wave.  The Indigo Atom is actually pretty cool, as his costume is reminiscent of an early 80's Gil Kane series that I remember.
But I REALLY want Anti-Monitor.  I can't justify the money just for him, so hopefully I can find a complete Anti-Monitor somewhere for a reasonable price.

Little dissapointed in them adding Star Saphire WW to this wave.  I just picked up the less articulated version for $20.   :P

I saw most of the wave at Target tonight too.  No Lex or WW, but they had the rest of the wave.  I might pick up a WW if I See her, but passing on the others.

Pretty much finished this wave (still dont have Black Lantern Hal) and the Anti-Monitor is pretty awesome.
