After reading our San Diego Comic-Con 2010 – Mattel DC Universe Classics – Updates, AFP reader chisd made this comment about the updated articulation we saw:
Mattel, if ur listening, please……the wave 16 robin is soooo fine, with the extra articulation and all that stuff. BUT please, do not make the following waves (wave 17, 18, 19…) and the re-issues the same articulation with wave 16 robin. If you do that ALL our previous collections (wave 1,2,3,4…) MUST all be replaced with the “new trend” of these articulations. We dont wanna re-buy new batmans, supermans, etc just to be abreast with the new Dick Grayson robin. If you do that, it will be a burden to us collectors. It means we have to collect again. I just wish we could finally end our collections with the same line and same articulations. I have many collections already. I aint that rich.
A couple months ago, after Sandman showed off his Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle, we ran a poll asking if you would buy DCUC figures you already had if they were re-released with updated articulation. The results were interesting. Over 1/4 of voters said definitely no. A little less than that, over 1/5 said definitely yes. The remaining folks said it would depend.
Now that we’ve seen more prototypes feature double-jointed elbows and knees, and hinged wrists, it’s time to ask the question again. If you voted in the previous poll, you won’t be able to vote again. So if you’ve changed your mind, or just feel strongly about the articulation updates, leave a comment below.
