Awesome Toy Picks: Captain Cold and Dark Knight Returns

A selection of new and old action figures you should add to your collection.

Each week we stroll down the toy aisle to see what cool action figures are on sale. This week's pick is that cool villain from the Flash's Rogues gallery, Captain Cold.

This Captain Cold figure is from the DC Universe Classics line. I've been surprised to see figures from earlier this year popping up at my local Target and Toys R Us stores (yes, I do check out different ones from time to time). Whatever the reason for these recent figures making their way back to store shelves, it just means they're that much easier for us to get our hands on.

Unfortunately you can see, poor Kid Flash had to fill in for some...background scenery. No need to worry though, he's doing fine right now.

He has some pretty good articulation. You can actually make his stand in slightly different poses. The only real problem is his gun is a little loose in his hand. But it stays in there. Here are some more shots of Captain Cold.

Along with the newer figures, we also pick out some older ones that you might have to search online if you wanted to pick these up (if you haven't already). You can check out action figure online sites or ebay and even amazon. I decided to go with Batman and Superman from the DC Direct The Dark Knight Returns line.

These are some pretty solid figures. The line also included Joker and Carrie Kelly. Originally I only picked up Batman when the line first came out. I bought Superman...at C2E2 this year, I think. My favorite part of the Superman figure is his curl. There's not a lot of articulation but, to me, that's a good thing. Multiple points of articulation can be good but sometimes causes difficulty in just trying to get them to stand.

Norm (from Tested.com) took all the shots this week. It's always funny to see people walking by give us looks as we stand outside the office posing the figures.

Dark Knight Returns Batman is such a crotchety old man. You just gotta love him.
