DC Collectibles released the second wave of their highly anticipated Icons line that fills in the gap for DC fans wanting to buy DC Comics characters in their classic outfits. Available now are The Flash, Lex Luthor, Blue Beetle, Black Adam, and Green Lantern Hal Jordan.
Black Adam is an excellent addition to the line, with the first ever larger, more muscular body than anything previously offered in the line so far.
Availability: December 2015
Sculpt & Paint:
Black Adam measures roughly 6″ tall and is sculpted with a more larger and muscular body than any other figure released in the Icons line so far. While the sculpt is still smaller compared to DC Collectibles New 52 DC figures, it features a great likeness to the character and has all of the articulation you’d need to make some great poses.
Just like all previous Icons figures, his tooling is 100% new and the tooling on the costume and head sculpt is very well done. His eyes are small and narrow and painted in a glossy white finish. His costume is painted in black and gold deco, with a black soft plastic cape with gold trim, and the chest features an electric bolt at the center with gold trim around it His belt and gauntlets also feature lightning bolts sculpted on them.
Included are three sets of interchangeable hands, and the lightning effect hands are very well done with transparent blue plastic sculpted and attached to the finger tips.
ball-socket head, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double hinged elbows, swivel-hinged and removable wrists, ball jointed chest, lower ab crunch, ball jointed hips, double hinged knees, and hinged-swivel rocker ankles.
6x Interchangeable hands (clawed, fisted, lightning effect)
Black Adam is an excellent figure, a great paint job, and a great sculpt. The larger more muscular body is a welcomed addition to the line. It is possible that Shazam will also use this body as does Superman. The paint apps are extremely well done especially the head sculpt, chest, and the lightning effect finger tips are a nice touch.
