As much as I love owning these toys from the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, there’s problems in the manufacturing. Some of the issues can be fixed by doing what I didn’t get right the during my first attempt.
The two most problematic figures in Hasbro’s action figure line for the 40th anniversary of the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon are Hank the Ranger and Eric the Cavalier. With the first toy, the arms are not fully posable. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get him to look like he’s in a comfortable pose to fire his energy bow.
For Eric, the colour on his chain mail armour is wrong. As a result, I had to laugh at the packaging since it shows the inconsistency of the product box art to the figure. It’s easy to add some oomph to the energy with either fluorescent or UV reactive paint, but if it can’t glow in daylight, it’s not worth the extra effort. Instead, I recommend using enamel (like Testors) over acrylic paint for improving both.
To be honest, neither holds onto the plastic very well, even after priming. Repainting them comes with a warning: touch-ups may be required. This. issue is especially true for Hank holding his electrified bow.
Whether people want to support the next film from DC Entertainment or not, The Flash toys may well be something kids want–especially when there’s a Batwing involved!
Spin Master Toys is getting far ahead of the game with the release of The Flash toys ahead of its release on June 16th.
Whether these super hero movies do well depends on how much merchandise is out there these days. With Shazam: Fury of the Gods, all we have so far are product from Funko! Pops and McFarlene Toys. Having additional product from the said movie to play with is a good thing and to not have enough can hurt overall impressions. I’m surprised there is no dragon, since I’d really want to own that!
But for The Flash, I still feel it’s all about the caped crusader. Batman will be the hero more so than the Scarlet Speedster. I’m glad this toy company knows that and in their first wave of product release, have the latter item available:
Spin Master Has Black Adam Action Figures, and the best toy is with the Power Punch!
Despite what critics are saying about the movie, I’ll be keeping my eyes out for what Black Adam Action Figures Spin Master will be releasing next. They have the exclusive DC license to this movie, and unlike those collectables for adults, what’s offered here is designed for abuse.
That is, I might test the quality by putting a firecracker under the toy to emulate what this anti-hero can withstand (as implied by the movie). Despite what the critics are saying about this film and what I said elsewhere, I believe this film is quality WWE style entertainment and nothing else. Anyone expecting more will be let down. It’s best to go in with low expectations.
And as for what’s next, I have high hopes for what wave two will entail! Personally, I hope the other characters will get a “Power Punch” edition. This movie shouldn’t be just about Black Adam. I want a version with Doctor Fate! Also, I’m more excited for what vehicles will be translated over. For now, all we have is one aeroplane to put those heroes in (who can’t fly). Plus, there’s a certain villain I’m waiting for confirmation on instead of me speculating on the next batch.
Spinmaster and DC partnered up to craft this line of The Batman merchandise.
Coming to toy stores are plenty of The Batman merchandise even this cape crusader may well want to rig up as vehicular drones. RC car enthusiasts can check out the Turbo Boost model over the regular release. Both have different features to make blazing in the night and scaring cats easy.
Spinmaster and DC partnered up to craft this line of wave one merchandise. It’s safe to say the release of The Riddler is waiting in the wings after the film’s hits cinemas March 4th. Be warned though, the following contains an image of the re-imagined Penguin and he doesn’t look too happy.
