  1. This was the version of The Riddler from Batman Forever I was hoping for from McFarlane.
  2. Cloth Cape is the deal breaker for me. They collect too much dust and eventually disintegrate leaving a capeless statue, which is quite odd looking.
  3. Finally, an old school Green Arrow by Todd. This one has been long overdue. Not too thrilled with the other two figures, but Ollie looks pretty good.
  4. This would have been an immediate buy for me except for the cloth cape. I don't get the obsession with having a resin statue and then having an attached cloth cape that will gather dust like a magnet and disintegrate over time. Then your stuck with a goofy looking statue. Why not offer a choice of a sculpted resin cape or cloth cape? Certainly that could be accommodated these days. In any event, this will be a pass from me. It's a great looking statue BTW.
  5. Bookworm & Alfred are the standouts in the group, with Disco Nightwing a fun addition. Both Space Batman & Wax Robin are interesting variants to the line. I'm glad McFarlane has returned to the TV show for the line and hopefully we'll see more TV villains in future waves. I think Mad Hatter is #1 on everyone's wish list, followed by Clock King & FalseFace. Shame & Siren are highly requested too.
  6. The Nightwing figure is a brand new figure top to bottom. The Spaceman Batman figure is the old figure that is shoulder wrapped in the space suit with wings & clear helmet. Alfred is the same figure as the Commissioner Gordon figure from the New Adventures wave with the suit now in black, but a brand new head sculpt, which is very good of Alan Napier. The feather duster is a nice touch. Since we haven't seen the entire body of Bookworm, you can't tell how much of it has been recycled. That said, the shirt & tie below the suit is recycled from the Gordon figure, but the tie is painted gold, with recycled upper arms. The overlying brown suit & lower arms are definitely new to accommodate the collarless suit and sleeves lined in gold trim. The head sculpt is definitely new, although it doesn't really look like Roddy McDowell. Maybe they are basing it on the comic book version. He still has the glasses & reading lamp hat. I wonder if it moves? I'll go out on the limb and say the lower pants legs are new to accommodate the gold trim as well, but the rest of the legs and shoes are recycled parts. The oversized magnifying glass is also a cool accessory. Since there are no pictures of the leaked Wax Robin figure, maybe they'll release a day of pre-sale surprise photo or put that figure off until the next wave. Hopefully, they'll finally make the much requested Mad Hatter figure to go with that pink-cowled Batman released about two years ago. Fingers crossed. I'm very happy they've returned to the '66 TV show for most of these figures. There's hope for more villains, which is what everyone loves.
  7. Will we ever see a Texas Tornado action figure again? Does Kevin Von Eric hold the rights to all of the Von Erich family's likenesses? Kerry Von Erich was the NWA World Champion & as the Texas Tornado, the InterContinental Champion in the WWF. He should be made into a figure.
  8. Didn't this figure get done as a chase B-A-F about two years ago? I looks vaguely familiar.
  9. Once the Punchline figure's release was leaked, I knew it would be a sellout for McFarlane. This character was too big of a hit for it not to have been produced. Then I actually saw photos of the finished product and knew it would fly off the shelves. It appears to have been an immediate sell out on all of the sites it was being sold on. I wasn't all that taken with the Joker figure they paired her with, but apparently, it didn't matter. I'd love to see a comic book based Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Mad Hatter, & Scarecrow eventually. Then maybe a new Harley Quinn & Ventriloquist with Scarface too. Just a suggestion.
  10. Good Lord, who peed in your Cheerios this morning? Todd mentioned that Punchline was in the works about a month ago in one of his online interviews. I know decisions to produce figures are made within the context of a company setting. I'm hardly clueless and don't appreciate your personal nastiness. This is a pleasant board & toxic comments like yours aren't needed here. Take the insults elsewhere.
  11. Very happy to see this character finally be made into an action figure. Punchline has been made into one statue only. Finally, we'll get her in plastic! This villain has been a huge hit with fans. Todd listened to them....FINALLY. I look forward to seeing a photo of the figure soon.
  12. Sounds like a hodgepodge cast of characters. Ragman could be interesting. Christopher Reeve Superman will be a huge hit. The Rookie robot & Mr. Bloom two-pack is highly unusual. Both were short lived characters in the comics and haven't had much exposure in awhile. The Clock King should be another interesting choice because there are several versions of the character. The William Tockman version, which was the original appearance in the comics, was the blue jumpsuit with a clock as head. Then there was Tam, who was a long-haired gentleman with clock-faced lensed glasses & clock-printed tie. Of course there was a Clock King on the old Batman '66 TV show, who was played by Walter Slezak, but I would think that would be made in the Batman '66 Retro 6 inch line. The Batman Animated Clock King was Temple Fugate, who wore a brown derby hat, brown jacket with grey pants, and clock-faced lensed glasses. That version should hopefully appear in the 6 inch DC Direct Batman: The Animated Series line. I do know that a similar in appearance version of the character is appearing in the current Suicide Squad comic as a member, but I think he's using the Tockman name. Red Hood will always sell. I don't know which Batman TV Batman they'll be using. Will it be Adam West in a 7 inch version? Who knows? The Batman Vehicles are highly requested, so I suspect they'll fly off the shelves, so to speak. The Batman Returns Batmobile has been requested for a very long time by collectors.
  13. These figures are excellent. From one of the worst Batman movies, these colorful characters from BATMAN & ROBIN really lend themselves to make great action figures. Poison Ivy might be one of the best female figures ever produced. Mr. Freeze is also a show stopper. The Bat trio are well done as well. I do hope McFarlane does a Bane figure from the movie eventually. If there is a BATMAN FOREVER line, they could do a Kilmer Batman, O'Donnell Robin in red & green costume, Carrey Riddler in hopefully his first appearance at Two-Face's lair, & Jones Two-Face in all his glory. They could surprise us with a BAF of Bane from BATMAN & ROBIN. Just an idea.
  14. I was a bit surprised to see that there was no BAF with this wave 1 of TNBA figures. I thought they'd include a Penguin or Mad Hatter figure since so many fans have requested them over the years. If these Batman Animated waves continue, I do hope new villains are included in them as BAFs.
