Scott Free has jumped back on the scene in the DC Universe – his Earth 2 counterpart is now deep in the primary DC books, hooking up with the Justice League in Darkseid War. His updated look from the New 52 relaunch carries over, a slight modernization from his original look. The DC Icons figure represents that well, featuring a high level of paint everywhere, dynamically sculpted cape, and some pretty cool accessories. Let’s take a look after the break courtesy of site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store!
DC Collectibles DC Comics Icons Mister Miracle
Mister Miracle is the sleeper from this wave. Layered in glossy and metallic paint on almost every square inch, he definitely pops on the shelf. I wasn’t up on Mister Miracle until recently, he’s popped into the ongoing Darkseid war in the current Justice League books. His accessories include a Mother Box for booming around and Aero Discs for traveling locally. This version of him is an updated incarnation of the original, modernizing slightly during the New 52 relaunch. The figure itself is fantastic and I’m digging him in the current books, so he’s a welcome addition to the team. Pulling the best from all generations is a plus for this line and Mister Miracle reps the new era well!
A note on the line so far – this is the end of wave 1 part 1. There are 13 more known and shown so far, all looking fantastic in preview pics. 8 (more) of those should be dropping this year if all goes to plan. I jumped back into DC collecting seriously at the end of DCUC, so I’ve been following DC Collectibles offerings instead since Mattel’s DCUC was so deep already. DCC has been great, but each sub-line was different in scale, sculpting, articulation and quality. This all-encompassing Icons line is perfect for me – it lets me build out a DCU shelf from all eras in a uniform way, if they continue long term that is. So far so good, the figures are great in the hand, no quality issues, and they look sharp. If DC Collectibles sticks with it this line has potential to be one of the best. Just gotta get over that smaller size hump!
