Hey, look, it's Justice League Unlimited Parademons! They come in packs of two. So why do I have four? Well, let me tell you. On Hell Matty Ordering Day, I ordered myself one set of Parademons and one Peter Venkman. That box arrived, easy as you please, and I was reasonably happy.
Then another identical box arrived two days later.
Did I get charged twice? Did I get a free duplicate order? I haven't actually investigated. All I know is that the Matty ordering system is carrraaaaaaazy fucked up, yo. And I decided to keep the extra set of Parademons because, hey, troop builders, and MattyCollector's been hinting that the JL line needs all the love it can get if it's going to continue. I can't return these! That's the opposite direction that I want for the line!
I am, however, selling the hell out of that Venkman, which will probably recover any lost funds if it turns out I got charged twice.
So, hey, Parademons. They each have three points of articulation, with two at the shoulders and one at the neck. They're, uh, pretty simple. Which is fine. Maybe I can have one of them hang out with Deadshot, Bane, and Harley as part of a scaled-down Secret Six. (C'mon, Mattel, you're just a Batman redeco away from a Catman toy! I don't care if he didn't look like that in DCUAnimated continuity!)
