McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Dark Knight Skydive Batman Figure?


Recommended Posts

I just don't understand why Todd hates actually face-scanning? I mean I get it, it's more money, but he just always gets it sorta there you know some sculptor just tried to emulate the face scan tech, this is pretty close to Christian Bale..but it's not as per usual with Todd.

Most likely, DC/WB already has an existing Bale face scan that (as the licensor) they could've/should've provided Mcfarlane with. So no scanning sessions would've been required anyway. Guess it was just a  choice to create from scratch,idk..

Agree with others here...it's not a great Bale likeness.  It is a good generic Bruce Wayne though.   If you like to customize your figures (like I do) it's not a hindrance to getting this fugure.  But I get it....if you want Bale Batman only the body sculpt gives you that with this figure.   Still picking this one up.

Shown below via Daniel Rodriguez on Facebook is a at a possible new DC Multiverse Platinum Edition Dark Knight Skydive Batman Figure from McFarlane Toys. This figure appears to have a new wired cape for your The Dark Knight Batman! You can purchase this figure, but please remember that PLATINUM EDITION figures are randomly inserted with no gurantee, from our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and Entertainment Earth as well as Amazon with a suggested retail price of $22.99.

So is this going to be Todd McFarlane's operating model (make the "regular" version the less desirable one and the chase the version people really want)? No, it's not all the time, but think about it: Skydive Batman reg vs chase, Anne Hathaway Catwoman single release "chase" and no idea of what the reg will be or even if there is one; Hawkman (classic colors released as the chase), etc. He's always been all about generating hype, even when it pisses off his fans. And with those three figs in particular (and probably others I'm forgetting), I don't think he's earning any points with the fans who get screwed by such decisions. Same with making certain super-popular figs store exclusives that people can't get their hands on
