DC Collectibles sent through their latest DC Comics Essentials figures – the Shazam / Black Adam 2 Pack! This set is perfectly timed with hype for the Shazam movie ramping up. This is not based on the movieverse though, it’s a classic comic representation of the characters. The set is bare bones, essential you might say (rimshot) – you get both Shazam and Black Adam, which are identical in mold other than the head sculpts. No extra hands or accessories are included. Each use the standard Essentials body style and articulation, very similar to most that have been released so far. Paint is well done, a highlight of the Essentials line. Nice and clean, head to toe, slightly matte in nature. The same line-wide articulation and execution issues are present – loose knees and ankles, tight chest. As are the “slightly longer than I’d like” arms. That being said, if you dug the previous Essentials releases, you know what you are getting here.
We’ve run the pair through a battle session, read on to check out some early looks at the 2 pack! This is due out in January 2019 and should be hitting retailers soon!
