Christmas Haul 2017: Parademon from DC Comics Multiverse: Justice League by Mattel
Height: 6 1/4 inches
Articulation: Hinged ankles, hinged knees, swivel thighs, H-hinged hips, swivel waist, swivel/hinge shoulders, bicep swivels, swivel/hinge elbows, swivel wrists, swivel lower and upper wings, and a balljointed head.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* Overal, the headsculpt and paintwork on the Parademon isn't terrible. I do wish the sculpt showcased the sharp teeth that these guys have in the DCEU (and open mouthed headsculpt would have been very welcome) but the paintwork on the skin and the clean work on the goggles really does look pretty cool.
* The Parademon has some very large wings. There are two smaller wings and two larger wings with one of each attached to two separate poles on the figures back. The wings pivot freely and do help to add some "oomph" to the figures impressiveness.
* The Parademon is toting a pretty cool rifle. There aren't any paint applications on it but the level of sculpted detail is impressive and the figure holds it well.
* Looking at the figure, you can definitely tell that something is up. Does the color of this figure even match the Parademons we see in the film? I'd suggest that these were based on an early design that was changed after filming but considering that the Parademons showed up in 2016's Batman v. Superman, there's no way that's the case unless Mattel has been sitting on this sculpt for nearly two years.
* The Parademon just looks overly toyish. While the comic (and perhaps even TV) based Multiverse figures seem to be improving, the Justice League line has largely been pretty disappointing. If you showed me a picture of this figure I would think he were from the kid focused 5-6 inch line.
* The articulation on this guy is weak. The head barely even rotates left and right, the shoulders have little to no movement, and everything else just feels solid and clunky.
If you'e looking for more Parademons I have reviewed the Nano Metalfigs Parademon from 5-Pack A.
