Kal-El Review

DC Super Heroes (Mattel) - Series 6
Mattel fights a never ending battle for cash, laziness, and American Way by trying to squeeze as much money as possible out of a single sculpt. This is a "super" example of this. Sorry for the bad pun. The only thing that separates this action figure from the other Supermen released by Mattel is the shiny new paint job and slightly modified head design.

The figure has twenty-one points of articulation enabling a wide array of classic poses. However, the same problem that has haunted the DC Superheroes line is still present. The legs are unable to come close together, forcing the figure into a spread legged stance.

The cape is large flexible, though I would not put to much strain on it for fear of the peg holding it on the back would tear.

The ankles are oddly shaped. The plastic that holds the feet on don't seem to have a good hold on the pegs that run through the feet and into the ankles. This could be fixed using a blow dry and cold water. There are a number of tutorials by Dr. Nightmare that could help you with this.

Over all, I give this figure a 4/5. It would be more if Mattel would use so diffrent bodies.
