AFi – First Look – Mattel’s 4″ Young Justice Superman

This week we’ll be taking a look at the newest additions to the 4″ Young Justice Line from Mattel.  Superman is part of the new wave of single carded figures that will be shipping soon.  This new wave is a four figure wave with two members of the Young Justice team (Robin and Artemis) and two members of the Justice League (Superman and Hal Jordan Green Lantern).   These new singles do NOT have a collect-and-connect element to them like the original twelve figures in the line with the Hall of Justice pieces.  As a result, Mattel has reduced the size of the packaging to be similar to the JLU single figure package.  All figures in this wave come with a red tinted stand.

Superman is sculpted on the adult buck.  He has a new head and cape.  All costume elements are achieved with paint.  The cape is soft ABS plastic.  The figure does have the “hand of justice” that has become (in)famous for this line of figures.  It’s that weird, upturned web-shooter hand that the sculptor put in this line as his “signature” it seems.  Because it was sculpted into the original buck we will see it in the line for the foreseeable  future.

This wave should be hitting stores in the next few weeks.
