Remember yesterday when I showed those awesome photos of ZICA Toys promo shots for the new Buck Rogers figures? Well here’s proto shots of Mattel’s Retro-Action Wave 4. Obviously the head sculpts are a bit rough here and hand painted, but… I dunno. At $20 a pop these have to look a LOT better in person.


I don’t even know why you’d attempt to do guys like Darkseid in the Mego format, honestly. He looks like an old Stretch Armstrong with those gloves. I’m sure some diehard Megoheads will say we shouldn’t complain and that they are awesome, but I’m left feeling a bit underwhelmed. I love the idea here Mattel, but the execution just seems so weak. I mean if Buck Rogers can look THIS GOOD, why can’t the DC Universe?
