Pros:Wonderful accessories

Cons:Limited articulation; size is not scale

The Bottom Line: Amazo is one of the best figures that actually has fun accessories to play with. I'm sure both Batman and the Joker are jealous as a result.


How do you stop the Justice League that boasts a roster with the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl? Why not create an android that has all of their powers and then some? This is what super-scientist Professor Ivo did when he created Amazo as the ultimate weapon against the Justice League. Mattel has produced a second version of the super-powered android for its Justice League Unlimited series.

Amazo was first released in a three-pack set in his original gray form from the animated series (the comic book version is vastly different). But after the first encounter, Amazo evolved and changed into something even more unique and powerful. He returned in a new golden form, the second one created by Mattel, only this time he’s released as a single-carded figure.

Amazo is the figure that debuted the generic male body used for most of the figures. In the show, he is actually depicted as being a tall entity, about two heads taller than Superman; however, his toy form doesn’t conform to that ideal. Instead, he is actually shorter than Superman in his plastic form. It’s a shame because I would have loved to see him in scale next to the other figures, but considering Amazo’s mold is used as the generic male figure, I guess it should be a surprise that he is a bit shorter.

The gold variant comes with some very cool accessories, some of the best ever in this lineup. Since he possesses various powers and abilities of the Justice League, it’s only fitting that he should be well equipped. One of his weapons at his disposal is Batman’s batarang, albeit a gold version of it. The other is Hawkgirl’s mace, again coloured in gold. He can hold each weapon in his hands without a problem. The final accessory is quite a neat one… Superman’s heat vision. It snaps on around his eyes and pints outwards to mimic Superman’s power. And no, this isn’t coloured gold as well.

Unfortunately, Amazo is really showing that he is robotic in nature due to his lack or articulation. 5-points is all he gets in the head, shoulders and legs.

It was a good move to add the extras with this figure because it wouldn’t have been worth the money, despite the fact that this is a “variant” of the gray version. Later versions of him are available, such as clear, transparent version, a gray version with Hawkgirl’s wings, and a Lantern-powered version. There is no end to what Mattel can come up with when it comes to Amazo. He’s become a versatile character.

Out of all of the variations available, this one has to be my favourite just from the accessories alone. Here’s hoping the next version of Amazo will see him in his true size… two heads taller than everyone else.
