3.75" Injustice Green Arrow Versus Deathstroke 2-Pack Figure Review

DC Collectibles has released the first set of figures in their new 3.75Ē Injustice Gods Among Us line. Each 2-pack features DC characters with costume designs based on the new video game of the same name. Today, we take a look at the Green Arrow versus Deathstroke set to see if these figures are worth adding to your collection.

Check out hi-res images for this figure in our GALLERY below.

Packaging - These figure incorporates the same basic packaging as all DC Collectibles. The figures comes in a white window box with green highlights on the right side with the name of the figures on the bottom right corner. The right side of the box shows a picture of the figures and the name of the sculptors, Robert Lynders for Green Arrow and Jean St. Jean for Deathstroke. The left side shows a larger close-up shot of the figures.

Smaller images of the figures with a brief bio about the game are displayed on the back along with images of the other 2-pack currently released, Wonder Woman versus Grundy. Nothing particularly stands out with this packaging, but you are able to see the actual figure before purchase.

Sculpt - I personally am not a huge fan of the costume designs used for this new game, however the figures do a nice job representing them. Deathstroke has a lot of sculpted detail including two gun holsters with guns on his legs and some almost Batman-like fins on his gloves and boots. He has an ammo belt sculpted on his upper torso and nice detailing on the chest area where he is wearing chain mail.

Green Arrow also has some nice details including a non-removable quiver with non-removable arrows on his back and a rubber waist piece. He also has some nice texturing on his hood and right arm guard. One of the hands is sculpted to hold the bow, and the other is sculpted with his fingers extended in an arch to hook the string on his bow. Though the costume design on Arrow is my least favorite of the two, this figure actually looks better in person than it did in the initial press images released.

Paint - Both figures have decent paint jobs. Both have very tight and detailed trimming with no noticeable errors. Green Arrow uses light greens and yellows with some darker greens mixed in on the waist piece and knee pads to give him some added dimension. Deathstroke uses dark blues and orange with a metallic silver on the chest for the chain mail. Some nice paint even details the revolvers sculpted on Deathstrokeís legs. There isnít much in the way of washes used on either figure but both figures look pretty solid in the paint department.

Articulation - These figures are definitely superior to previous 3.75Ē DC-based offerings from companies like Mattel, but they still are not quite up to par to lines like Marvel Universe. Both figures basically have the same points of articulation. Neither figure can look up or down much. They have ball-hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, single hinged elbows, and no wrist articulation.

Both figures have a swivel ab crunch joint although the ammo belt on Deathstroke somewhat limits his ability to bend over. Neither figure has a swivel waist joint, and the legs are attached with a t-bar. They both have double-hinged knees and hinged ankles.

Accessories - This is the area where the figures hurt the most. Green Arrow comes with a compound bow which has nice detailing on it and an elastic removable bow string. The problem is that he has no arrows. The quiver on his back and the arrows are sculpted so he canít do much with the bow.

Deathstroke is even worse. He comes with one oversized machine gun. I donít know if this gun was a carryover from some other figure, but the gun seems too big for Deathstroke. He isnít able to hold it very well in his right hand because the handle is so big. It fits a little better in his left. Because the gun stock is so long, he canít really hold the rifle in both hands or get in any kind of good sniper positions. There are two non-removable pistols sculpted on his legs which would have been nice if they were useable, and he has no sword which is really disappointing. This figure really suffers due to the lack of good accessories.

Quality Control Issues - No major quality control issues

Overall - As I mentioned before, these figures are a step up from Mattelís DC-based 3.75Ē figures and I think they have potential, but this particular set was a little disappointing to me. Despite not being a fan of the Injustice costumes, I would have enjoyed these figures more if they had more accessories and maybe a little more articulation. I am also a little disappointed that they seem to be a little smaller than other 3.75Ē (like a certain Marvel line). If you are a 3.75Ē collector and do like the Injustice costumes, then the drawbacks of these figures are probably not so severe that you wonít want to grab them. If youíre like me and not digging the costumes, then I would say you probably want to hold off on these and hope DC Collectibles gets around to releasing more traditional DC Comic based figures in this scale.
