DC Comics Icons 6" Deathstroke, Wonder Woman, Static, Cyborg & Swamp Thing Figures Review

by Jay Cochran
April 24, 2017
DC Collectibles has released a new wave of DC Comics 6" Icons consisting of five new figures. This will be the last batch of Icons released until September, but we get a number of good figures in this batch including Deathstroke, The Terminator and Wonder Woman. You can purchase these now at BigBadToyStore.com.



The wave consists of Deathstroke, New 52 Wonder Woman, Static, Swamp Thing and Cyborg which is a deluxe figure. The packaging for these figures is the same window boxes that we have seen since the line started. The figures are clearly displayed. The side shows what comic story the figure is based on, and the back shows all the figures in the wave, minus Static. Static originally was to be part of the previous wave but was delayed.



For the figures themselves, let me start with Swamp Thing, my least favorite in the wave. The figure stands a little under 7” tall and is based on Bernie Wrightson’s early designs of the characters from the 70’s which was smaller and less bulky than today’s version. However I think this figure looks a little too frail. In fact, when I look at the figure, the word that comes to mind is anorexic.

The paint applications are solid on the figure with a mixture of light and dark greens which look good, however the lighter colors do make the figure seem less comic book accurate. In the comics, Swamp Thing definitely seems darker looking, in part because he hangs out in dank swamps.



Accessories include an extra pair of close fisted and open grip hands and a Cranius mini figure. Cranius is the leader of the Un-Men and is a brain with a human face on it attached to a human hand that he uses to walk around. The 1 1/2” tall figure doesn’t have any articulation but does have very nice sculpting and paint applications. You can even make out veins in the brain membrane. Cranius is probably my favorite thing about this Swamp Thing figure.



The Static figure is based on a character from Milestone Comics which was founded by Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis, and Derek T. Dingle in the early 90's. The titles from Milestone were distributed under the DC Comics banner. This figure which stands just a little over 5 1/2” is based on how the character first appeared in the comics with a dark navy blue spandex like costume with lightning stripes on it. The paint applications are solid on this one, and I especially like how the metallic blue of the costume looks on the figure.



For accessories, two different head sculpts are included plus a manhole cover with electricity effects thats acts as a stand for the figure. One head sculpt is just the normal mask while the other one sports a black cap with an X on it. This is something you would see him wear in the comics. The figure stand is made to mimic Static’s ability to fly around on inanimate objects using his powers. I like the accessories, but some additional accessories originally advertised with the figure are missing which is a little disappointing. The trench coat and one of the extra hands that had a shooting lightning effect attached to it are the ones I miss the most.



The Cyborg figure is the exact same one that came in the Justice League Rebirth boxset. A few minor paint differences, but otherwise exactly the same. The big difference comes with the accessories. The boxset version had none, and this deluxe version has quite a few, two pairs of hands, two lower arm cannon pieces, extra right full arm cannon, power generator and three wires used to connect the generator to the figure. I liked the figure when I got it in the boxset, but the added accessories really add to the overall fun of the figure.



It’s a tough call to say which figure is the best one in the wave, Wonder Woman or Deathstroke. Both are really good figures and worth adding to your collection.



This version of Wonder Woman improves upon the one included in the Justice League boxset. For one thing, it’s in much better scale to the other Icons. It stands 6.25” tall as opposed to 6.5” tall that the previous Wonder Woman stood. This figure also has a lot of accessories which is nice. You get two pairs of hands, a sword, shield, and two versions of the magic lasso, one rolled up that can be placed on her belt and the other to use on other figures to get the truth out of them. The shield can be placed on the figure’s wrist or stored on her back. The sword can be stored in a loop located on the figure’s belt.



While the figure is scaled down a bit from the Rebirth version, it does seem to share the same sculpted head which is actually different from the one seen in the original promo images. I don’t have a problem with this head sculpt, but I do think the one in the promo images looked a little better.



Deathstroke, like Wonder Woman, has quite a few accessories. You get two pairs of hands, a pair with a closed fists and a pair of grip hands for holding the included weapons. Weapons include a revolver pistol with working gun holster, removable sword and sword sheath, rifle and bow staff which breaks down into three pieces. The pistol fits a little loose in the holster. While the rifle looks accurate to the one used in the Judas Contract storyline, I don’t really like the overall look of it.

Finally, the figure has two different head sculpts, one masked and the other unmasked. Both sculpts look good, but I really like the unmasked one. DC Collectibles did a great job of capturing the look of Slade Wilson from the comics.



The figure itself stands just under 6.25” tall. It is taller than older Icons figures but not quite as tall as the Batman Rebirth figure from the recent Justice League boxset. It also is a bit shorter than figures in other 6” lines like Marvel Legends or DCUC.



I like the overall sculpting detail on the figure with the chainmail found throughout the figure. I also like the metallic blue they used on the chainmail parts. I did see a bit of a paint sloppiness where the gold on his neck meets the blue of his shirt, and the orange portion of his trunks located on the legs is a bit darker than the orange on the crotch section of his trunks. These are all minor complaints as I feel the overall look of the figure does a nice job capturing the look and feel of the Deathstroke character of this era.



Articulation on all the figures are solid and pretty much the same across the board. You get a pretty good range of motion overall including double jointed elbows, knees and ankle pivots. The figures don’t have a standard thigh swivel but they do have some rotation near the ball joints where the legs attach to the crotch section. I like that even the female figures in this line continue to get double-jointed elbows.



The worst thing about this wave is that we won’t be getting any more Icons until September, but there is definitely enough here to tide us over until then.
