About a week ago, Sandman shared some pics of the new Blue Beetle figure showing off some action poses that were enabled by his new articulation. Although Mattel has already brought to market highly articulated figures of the DC Universe Classics, the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle features some new points – double-jointed elbows and knees, and wrist hinges.
Mattel says they will use the new articulation moving forward, but will consider what articulation makes sense on a character by character basis. In DC Universe Classics wave 14 and DCUC wave 15 (revealed yesterday), the next two upcoming waves to hit retail, so far none of the figures feature the new joints.
That begs the question, should they only use the new articulation moving forward or should they revisit figures they’ve already released? Let us know!
