I must touch your plastic..

Post by Zaul on Mon Oct 05, 2009 2:47 pm

So what's the deal with Plastics?

All of my DCUC Wave 1 and 2's are a nice solid Plastic, However the others have felt like a rubbery soft plastic, similar to that used on the capes of some super hero figures.

Is the Rubbery type cheaper or something? I'm a little confused why they would change it.

As far as the ' cheap ' plastic goes is it likely to have any problems as far as perhaps colours fading or more prone to break or anything like that?

I thought they deliberately went with the softer plastic because it was more flexible and not as heavy when it came to playing/posing?

I've never had any problems with "soft plastics" on my action figures with the very BIG exception of my Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon action figures from so very long ago. They were ultra expensive at the time and not that long after I got them the "soft plastic" used on their "socks", "skirts", Li Mu Bai's pony-tail, etc all started to break apart and eventually fell off. Not happy Jan.

No issues with the few DCUC I have or any other figure (so far).

Cheers.
