Just before the holidays I got a package from Mattel. One of the most surprising things in the box was a carded sample from DC Universe Classics Wave 7.
The week before the holidays, I had visited a local comic shop that is located up the street from Mattel HQ. On display in the shop, they had the 2-up prototype of Shazam! from DCUC Wave 6 and a carded sample of the finished product of the same figure. I’m told that there are several of the 2-ups from Wave 6 that were sent out to comic shops across the country to help advertise the line. Has anyone else seen any of more at their local shops?
I know there is one picture of Barda on Matty’s Facebook page, but I didn’t think that was enough. Here is a full rundown of this figure.
(No Helmet Variant)
The Collect and Connect figure for Wave 7 is Atom Smasher. From the looks of this arm he will be at least as big as Lobo.
Below is a comparison with the first DC Direct Version (DCD is releasing another Barda in their second wave of Kirby New Gods line)
Comparison with Starfire from the upcoming MattyCollector 2-pack and Wonder Woman from DCUC wave 4.
