It feels like it’s been forever since they were formally announced, but over the last few weeks DC Collectibles Crime Syndicate figures have finally been hitting the stores. The first figures making their way to our grubby lil fingers are Owlman and Johnny Quick w/ Atomica. Believe it or not, I picked Johnny Quick over Batman Owlman.
Nonono. Don’t give me a hard time. Of course, I’m gonna get Owlman, at some point. Like I said in my Total Heroes Green Lantern review, I need another Batman figure like I need a hole in the head. And, no, it doesn’t matter that this is Earth 3’s version of Batman. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck and is named Owlman, it’s still Batman.
Whatever any of that means.
If you’re not following DC’s Forever Evil, then you should really be ashamed of yourself. Ok. Maybe that’s a bit extreme of me to say. Still, the series has a great update of the Crime Syndicate. So great, in fact, I almost don’t mind the fact DC’s pushed the final issue of the series back 2 months.
