EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

You don't have to say a special word to transform your superhero play with the Shazam! Action Figure lineup. Based on the new DC Comics movie, Mattel's Shazam! toy line-up includes 12-inch action figures with lots of poseability and special features.

There are two 12-inch TrueMoves action figures featuring Shazam! and Dr. Sivana. Each figure features 11 points of articulation so that kids can play out all sorts of action and pose the figures in action-packed poses. The Shazam! action figure is designed to look like actor Zachary Levi, complete with white fabric cape. And the Dr. Sivana action figure is designed to look like actor Mark Strong, with stubbled chin and scar through the right eye.

There is also a Thunder Punch Shazam! figure that plays lights, sounds, and phrases when you squeeze the figure's legs together. The figure will also punch its right arm.

Is It Fun?

With this action figure lineup, fans of the movie can play out good versus evil scenarios straight from the big screen. Kids will also like using their imaginations to create their own action and adventure. The 12-inch figures have nice detail and poseability, more than what we normally see in action figures of that size. That really gives these figures a lot of playability, although we're sure older fans will want to collect them, too. And the sounds and phrases from Thunder Punch Shazam! brings the character to life and enhances the imaginative play.

Who It’s For

The Shazam! Action Figures are for ages 4 and up. Fans of the movie and superhero will enjoy collecting and playing with them the most.

What To Be Aware Of

Thunder Punch Shazam! includes three button cell batteries for the in-store try-me features, so we recommend replacing them before you play for best results.

The 12-inch TrueMoves figures are sold separately for $9.99, while the Thunder Punch Shazam! retails for around $29.99.
