Action Figure Review: The Atom (DC's Legends of Tomorrow) from DC Comics Multiverse by Mattel
Height: 6 3/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged ankles, hinged knees, swivel thighs, H-hinged hips, swivel waist, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Alternate unmasked Ray Palmer head, Atom micro figure, and the head and waist for the Rookie Collect & Connect figure.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* The Atom isn't a bad looking figure. I like the armored looking outfit that utilizes red and blue highlights. This guy could easily fit in with the DCEU figures or your standard comic based Multiverse/ DCUC figures, too. It's got a look that works for a number of different lines.
* The sculpted detail on the figure is impressive. I do appreciate that Mattel gives there movie and television based figures completely unique body sculpts. The paintwork is neat and clean and the various cables and wires on the suit look excellent.
* The Atom's helmet is pretty cool. I like the large visor and the Atom symbol on the forehead.
* The Atom also includes an unmasked head of Ray Palmer that resembles Brandon Routh quite nicely. I honestly forgot that Routh played the Atom but, when I looked at the headsculpt, I instantly knew it was him. Well, my first thought was "This looks like the guy who played Superman in Superman Returns. I just connected the dots from there. The heads swap out easily.
* The Atom includes a mirofigure of himself in his miniature form. At just a little over an inch this guy is pretty tiny but makes for a cool display piece in a larger gathering of superheroes.
* The Atom includes the head and waist of the Rookie. I'll review this guy fully once I review all of the other figures but, for now, let's just say he looks pretty cool.
* The Atom has the standard Mattel DCEU styled articulation which is woefully outdated. Furthermore, the joints he does have, particularly the ankles, elbows, and knees, have severely restricted ranges of motion.
* The Atom also has some paint slop on his chin. It's either that or herpes. Or he had blueberries for breakfast.
The only other action figure of the Atom I've reviewed so far is the Atom microfigure that was included with the Dark Knight Strikes Again version of the Flash figure.
