The Toyark is ending 2015 with the line that launched at it’s end, DC Icons! Today we are taking a look at #08 Lex Luthor, a modern Warsuit take from the Forever Evil arc. Sporting his traditional green and purple, this suit is more streamlined than those past. He comes with several accessories including an energy saw and wrist dagger. The sculpt is tops from the head down to the feet. Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!

I am a big Lex Luthor fan, specifically when he’s in the Warsuits. This one comes from the New 52+ era, his third. The first was giant, almost like a bulbous Gundam. The second was human scale but bulky, and DC Collectibles released that in the New 52 line. This is his 3rd, and he’s been rocking it for a while in his current adventures with the Justice League. I’ll take ’em all. I would really enjoy a Bronze Age one, similar to the DCUC one from Mattel in this style at some point as well. I’d also enjoy one from DC Universe Online, the MMO, that key art version is fantastic.
Anyway back on track. As for the figure it’s a another great entry to the line. Standard DC Icons construction is at play at all the articulation points. The parts are unique, each with their own cuts and sculpting additions coming from the slim body base. Swappable hands popped in and out easily, and the accessories are solid. The head sculpt is dead on for a modern Lex Luthor, bald and angry. Bottom line, great figure all around, worth a pick up. Hopefully we continue to get New 52+ figures in the line going forward as Mister Miracle and Lex are 2 of my favorites so far.
