New Bizarro am not here! This figure was said to have a street date somewhere around February 20th (I’ve not seen a reason why) but the latest plastic iteration of Bizarro World’s favorite son has made the scene early in a number of places and he’s pretty fly for a plastic gray guy.
Ol’ El-Kal comes with the following accessories:
-removable cloth red cape that is remniscent of the cloth capes from the Kenner/Hasbro era. Nicely done and of course the s-shield on it is backwards, which is a nice touch.
-a suit coat, minus the arm portions. For everyday casual wear at the Planet Daily. This is a nifty accessory. Very easy to put on and take off.
-two interchangeable hands. He comes packaged with fist hands, and these can be swapped out for flight poses. Or if Biz feels like doing an Austin Powers style “Judo chop!”, these will help in that endeavor.
-Bizarro no. 1 medallion. It’s always good to wear things that help you feel better about yourself, yeah? I bet the O’Doyles from Billy Madison had closets full of “O’Doyle Rules!” shirts and such.
-a purple tie. This can be switched out with the medallion. Or if Bizarro is really dressing to impress, he can wear that and the tie!
-removable glasses. To complete the impenetrable disguise that draws people’s attention away from Bizarro’s trainwreck grammar, disheveled hair, front and back backwards s-shields, etc.
The articulation is swell. He uses the newer male Multiverse body.
Bizarro is also purposely packaged backwards. When you see him, don’t worry. There’s no idiotic figure swapping going on, he comes that way by design.
Overall, a very fun figure and worth picking up. I’m glad he’s a Walgreen’s exclusive as those are easy to find and this guy deserves to be bought by many, cuz he am good!
