    This is the type of book well-meaning relatives buy comics fans or toy collectors for gifts. A series of photographs of action figures taken out of the original packaging in alphabetical order focused on the D.C. Universe. Becomes even more confusing when listing all of, say, the figures made of Batman - dating back to the Captain Action days (1960s). Perhaps an arrangement by decade might havge worked better, but this was a doomed project from the conception in my humble opinion.

Worth flipping through, but honestly, there is not much meat to go onto the bones of this over-sized color picture book. So if grandma gives you this for your birthday, smile and be grateful - her heart was certainly in the right place.

    it's a sound idea, you know, a book showing all the superhero action figures they've made over the years, but man this is kinda shoddily planned and designed. like bargain basement chip kidd. i mean what's the point of text boxes and "fun facts" pointing to figures that aren't even pictured. that's just annoying. also, why do so many alternate batman toys involve the color orange. i'm pretty sure that is a color that would severely clash with the gotham night. anyway, if you one to flip through it it's a sound idea, you know, a book showing all the superhero action figures they've made over the years, but man this is kinda shoddily planned and designed. like bargain basement chip kidd. i mean what's the point of text boxes and "fun facts" pointing to figures that aren't even pictured. that's just annoying. also, why do so many alternate batman toys involve the color orange. i'm pretty sure that is a color that would severely clash with the gotham night. anyway, if you one to flip through it and look at some toys, i guess it's cool.

    This book is organized alphabetically so that multiple versions of given characters can be seen together. I would have preferred a book organized chronologically. The photography is nice but I wish there was an image for every figure. There could definitely be a new edition featuring all the DC Direct figures of the 2000s.

    I enjoyed what little there was to this reference guide, but I felt it was really lacking. Not a lot of background on the action figures and the vast majority didn't even have pictures. It was super cheap so I can't complain too much.

    This is a great compilation of the evolution of DC action figurines. I would have liked to see all known figures featured with supporting images, but this is still a worthy collector's item.
