Batgirl_header.jpgIt's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!

This week, we're having a look at the brand new Arkham Knight Batgirl one sixth scale figure from Hot Toys. Like mentioned in the Harley Quinn review from 2 weeks ago, Hot Toys decided to release both figures really close to each other in order to make sure that you don't start the year thinking you will be able to save some money. Harley was pretty great, so how does Batgirl fare?

Sober box art, as all the other Arkham Knight figures.

Barbara comes in her Arkham Knight suit (you don't say?!) along with 8 extra hands, an additional mouth plate to give her an ever so slightly different expression, 2 batarangs, a grapnel gun with 2 different batclaws (rope or no rope), and a remote hacking device, with 'hologram' screen.

The body of the figure is a mix of both seamless and normal articulations. The top part is seamless, the costume is just molded on the rubber and the shoulders, arms and abs move just like a seamless figure (hinged), and then, we can see the leg articulations. Weird choice, but seamless legs with that suit would have been tricky, so it's understandable.

She has "real" hair which is always kinda meh to me. I can never really style the Barbie doll hair nicely, but people who know what they are doing might get something nice out of it. The cape is just like on the Arkham Knight Batman figure: a total mess. It has wires in it (seven of them), and it looks pretty bad when you look at the back of the figure, but can look great for pictures and poses from the front. The 2 mouth plates go from "resting b**** face" to "slightly smirking". At first, I thought I got the same plate twice, but it turns out there is a very minimal difference.

Arkham Knight Batgirl is an otherwise good figure, looks great, and that cape with the yellow inside is definitely eye-catching (from the front). Tons of fun poses for Barbara Gordon, who miraculously managed to stand up from her wheelchair from one chapter of the game to another (The figure is based on the DLC "A Matter of Family", which happens in the past).

Is ToyFarce your review name?  Haha, I first read "ToyFarce" on April Fool's Day, and assumed that whenever I see "ToyFarce" on TNI, it is intended as a joke.  Your photo review otherwise looks great.

Thanks for the kind words! It is indeed the same ToyFarce that does the parody news twice a week, also doing reviews. I usually try to add jokes or funny pics in the reviews too :) (That Batgirl review being a bad example of that...)

Looks like a "want to be"....

 Play Arts Arkham Batgirl ....

It's ok....I guess....

Would rather get the Play Arts Kai Batgirl....

That's just me.....IMHO of course ;^)

I have both and I'd say the Hot Toys is a bit better. Also, at least, the feet can be flat, while on the Play Arts Kai one, there are those hinges that prevent you to have the feet flat, which is a major pain in the *** to pose them 😅
