  1. Warner Bros. Games and DC today announced Batman: Arkham Trilogy for Nintendo Switch, a compilation of Rocksteady Studios’ award-winning videogames that brings together the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight in one iconic package. Batman: Arkham Trilogy is scheduled to launch for Nintendo Switch this fall 2023, complete with all previously released downloadable content (DLC) from all three titles. The trilogy is being developed for Nintendo Switch by Turn Me Up Games. Developed by Rocksteady Studios and released in 2009, Batman: Arkham Asylum is where it all started. The game set the stage for DC’s “Arkhamverse” that fans know and love today and introduced players to a unique, dark, and atmospheric adventure that takes players to the depths of the infamous Arkham Asylum. Featuring an original story, players move in the shadows as Batman to instill fear amongst enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City's most notorious villains, including Harley Quinn, Bane, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy, and Scarecrow, who have taken over the asylum. Batman: Arkham City is Rocksteady Studios’ 2011 follow-up that builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum. The game sends players soaring through the expansive Arkham City – the maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters, and insane criminal masterminds. Featuring an incredible Rogues Gallery of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals including Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze, and many others, the game allows players to experience what it feels like to be The Dark Knight and deliver justice to those confined within Arkham City. Batman: Arkham Knight raises the stakes for The Dark Knight in Rocksteady Studios’ 2015 finale to the multi-award-winning trio of Batman: Arkham games. In this epic conclusion to the Arkhamverse story arc, the fate of Gotham City hangs in the balance as Scarecrow is joined by the Arkham Knight, making his villainous debut in DC’s Batman Universe, as well as a roster of notorious DC Super-Villains including Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two-Face, Firefly, and the Riddler. Joining The World’s Greatest Detective are his closest allies, Commissioner Gordon, Oracle, Alfred, Lucius Fox, Catwoman, Robin, and Nightwing. The game culminates in the ultimate showdown in Gotham City and introduces players to the complete Batman experience with the Batmobile that is fully drivable throughout the open game world and capable of transformation from high-speed Pursuit Mode to military-grade Battle Mode.
  2. SHOCKING REVELATION! During a recent interview with Spawn, we asked what led to the return of a Spawn line of action figures in 2021, and it turns out it was... jealousy? Spawn action figures had been a staple of McFarlane Toys since the very beginning, so when they got the DC Comics license and started to produce more Batman figures than Spawn, something had to be done! During a recent interview with Spawn, we talked about the 90's, when Spawn was one of the biggest things in the world of comic books, selling millions of issues, but also in action figures and collectibles, with the launch of McFarlane Toys (which was called 'Todd Toys' at the time). "I have very fond memories of that period. People knew I was the G.O.A.T. Comics, animated series, a movie, action figures... You couldn't go to any comic book store without seeing Spawn." From 1994 to 2008, over 34 waves of Spawn action figures were produced. It would then take years before we would see another Spawn action figures... "Those were dark times, to say the least. Some say I, Spawn, had saturated the market, and it was just a good business decision to lay low for a while. There had been too many Spawn figures..." Enter DC Comics: In late 2019, McFarlane Toys announced that they acquired the DC Comics license and would produce action figures of acclaimed DC superheroes, starting in 2020. "That's where it started to bug me... In January 2020, McFarlane Toys announced the first wave of DC Multiverse figures. In that first wave, there were already 3 Batman figures (4 if you count the Batman who Laughs!). Then another wave was announced, with another Batman. Then another..." In March 2020, the first Spawn figure in years was announced as part of the Mortal Kombat 11 line. "I had to come back, but I had to be smart about it. I had to test the waters first... but after 3 different releases of that same figure, with different weapons, we knew it was time". McFarlane Toys would then announce a return to Spawn, with a Kickstarter campaign of the very first Original Spawn figure REMASTERED... followed later by a new line of Spawn action figures. "You see, Todd was making too many Batman figures... and I took that personally". Even though there are still tons of Batman figures being produced, there are now tons of Spawn figures being produced as well. Since the first figure, we have had several different flavors of the Mortal Kombat Spawn, a Gunslinger Spawn, a Mandarin Spawn, a Ninja Spawn, a Spawn with a throne, a Nightmare Spawn, an Omega Spawn,... and soon a King Spawn! "We even buried the hatchet with Batman and a comic book and an action figure 2-pack came out! Everything is as it should be." More news at 11:00... The Last Spawn. *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  3. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the brand new Harley Quinn 1/6 scale figure from the Batman: The Animated Series line by Mondo. This line has been pretty awesome so far, and Harley Quinn is another homerun. The deeper we get into that line, the better it gets! As is tradition, the box is one of those boxes that you just can't throw away. They're also pretty big, so you have to have some space to store them (thanks, Mondo...). The front of the box opens to reveal a window, with velcro (which used to be magnets). This is the timed edition of the figure, which has a few bonus items, including the hyenas. There are 2 levels of inserts. Harleen Quinzel, aka Harley Quinn comes with a ton of fun accessories: 4 extra heads (including an unmasked one), 4 extra pairs of hands, her 2 hyenas Bud and Lou, with their bowl, a steak and a bone, a hammer, a joker scepter, a handbag, a mannequin arm, Batman's belt, Batman's handcuffs, her purse, a bottle of poison perfume and a certificate that declares her sane. This set is really close to be the 12-inch version of the DC Collectibles Expression set, minus the fish outfit, a couple of firearms and a few heads. The heads are relatively easy to change, the pegs on the hands are slightly too short, with the hands getting out of the pegs easily if you move the figure around too much. The Hyenas have no articulation at all, which is a bit sad. A neck articulation at least would have made them slightly better. The articulation is way better than Mondo's previous Catwoman figure, and Harley can definitely move a bit better. The next 1/6 scale Batman: The Animated Series figures from Mondo are Man-Bat and the Phantasm from Mask of the Phantasm (both were already pre-ordered with the quickness). More news at 11:00... RIP Arleen Sorkin
  4. Next up for my McFarlane Super Powers collection is Nightwing.(in the outfit the way that I hoped we would get.) Love that disco flare. Made from a McFarlane Flash base and Nightwing head, Marvel Universe Morbius collar, and a lot of hours on the paint. I hope you enjoy this, and as always, More to come.
  5. When it was announced that we would be getting a Tim Drake Robin in the McFarlane Super Powers line, I hoped it would be this version of the suit. But since it wasn't, I decided to make my own. Using the McFarlane Super Powets Robin as a base, Hush Batman belt, and head from my fodder bin. I cobbled together this. The cape is from the Batman Returns figure, and is just a place holder until I order a proper Batman styled double sided cape from the one and only, Capemaster. Hope you enjoy this take, and hit the like button if you do. As always, more to come.
  6. Next up for my McFarlane Super Powers collection is Mr.Freeze, yes I know this figure was already done in the original line, and a better version was put out a few years later from Tot Biz, but I never liked that design and preferred the look from the Animated series. So. I took inspiration from that and made my own version of the cold villain. Hope you enjoy this, and if you do press the "like" button and leave a comment. As always, more to come.
  7. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at some recent McFarlane Toys figures: the DC Multiverse Batman and Spawn two-pack, and the BigBadToyStore Exclusive Spawn Universe Spawn (Black and White Accent Edition). I hesitated to even open these, since they kinda looked cool in their respective boxes, but I have no space to display them in the boxes either, so had to #LetEmBreathe! First, the DC Multiverse Batman and Spawn two-pack. Fresh off the heels of the (slightly disappointing) Batman/Spawn crossover comic book that came out in december last year, McFarlane Toys announced a two-pack, which makes complete sense, since they have the DC license and own Spawn. It's as if the comic book just existed to sell action figures... *mindblown* The 2 figures are pretty good, considering there is a plethora of Batman and Spawn figures, and they could have picked worse ones. My only issue with the 2 pack is the Batman screaming head, which makes it look like he just stubbed his toe really hard constantly. A second head with a more 'standard' expression would have been welcome (even one we already have). Batman comes with 2 extra hands and a batarang, and Spawn comes with a huge sword. Also included are a backdrop with a base to hold it, along with 2 trading cards and 2 stands (one DC and one Spawn). The Batman figure re-uses the body of the Year 2 figure, I believe, with a different cape and head, while the Spawn is the same as the one as the throne set one, with a way better cape. The Spawn Universe Spawn (Black and White Accent Edition), which is limited to 3000 and was exclusive to BigBadToyStore was a total impulse buy. I didn't really have a need for a "How it feels to chew 5 gums" edition of Spawn, but I was browsing the internet when it dropped, saw that it was limited, succumbed to FOMO and grabbed it, and it was shipped really soon after. It comes in a special 'collector' box with great art on the back. The figure comes with chain accessories, a collectible art card with a stand, and a stand for the figure. The figure uses the same mold as the Mortal Kombat Shadow of Spawn figure, but only using black with green 'accents' (there's not really any white on the figure, so not sure why it's called black and white accent...). I'll admit it looks really cool. It has a great shelf presence. The chains can be attached in his back, under the cape, to flow freely on the sides. The only thing that would have made that figure a complete win would if the green highlights glowed in the dark. More news at 11:00... Spawn and Batman brooding over the city contest, coming soon!
  8. Next up, for your viewing pleasure (hopefully) is "Killer Moth". Made from a McFarlane Super Powers Flash, some apoxie sculpt for the helmet, gloves from Deathstroke, and lastly, wings come from the Spinmasters figure.
  9. Using the new Detective Batman from McFarlane's wave four Super Powers line, I decided to redo his first Batman "Hush" figure using in my opinion a much superior mold. Just repainted rem9ved the belt, and had a friend make the logo on their crikut. I hope you enjoy this, and as always, More to come.
  10. It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Riddler Puzzle Box by Edward Nigma from McFarlane Toys/DC Direct. Something different this week! When this was announced, I thought "Cool, props!", thinking it would look a bit like something out of the Arkham video game series. Unfortunately, it wasn't like that...but it's still a Riddler themed puzzle box! The box arrived a bit smashed, but there was enough protection inside for the box to be fine. The Riddler Puzzle Box by Edward Nigma is a big cube, with puzzles on 4 of its sides (bottom and 'back' of the box don't have much). It's pretty sturdy and looks fun on a shelf, especially open or with a McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Arkham City The Riddler action figure next to it (available now!). Now, I'm gonna try to solve it, but if you do not want to be spoiled about the content of the box, you'll have to skip the next few parts! First, I turned the dial on the little door and the door opened (it has a flat side, so it opens when you get it on the right position). Inside, there was a piece of batarang (1 out of 3), 2 plastic cards and a note. The 2 cards have parts of a question mark drawn on them, and if you align them in the right position, you can fit them in the card slot next to the little door. I did that, and am not sure if it did anything! Yay! On the side with the 4 buttons, the button that has the highlighted question mark can be pushed, and it pushes out the first button. I have yet to figure out what that button/key that came out can be used for, but at least, I got a button/key! The top part has one of the squares (the middle one) that can be removed, and if you push the remaining squares up, you unveil a button! Push it and the top part opens: 2 notes and another part of the Batarang are inside! For the last part, with the key pad, I first tried to enter the 'year when the bat got his start', as mentioned in the notes found in the top part, and it did nothing. The other card said 'To continue, you'll need to phone some friends. Forget the bats, call the birds and a cat and start with your oldest friend first. Success is just a few clicks away!'... It didn't help much, but that last sentence kinda gave a clue, since I noticed when I pushed 4, there is a click sound. I pushed it a few more times, and a drawer opened at the back of the box, with the third and final part of the Batarang, and a note saying congratulations and to place everything back where you found them for others to try to solve it (I forgot to take a picture of that one. My bad!). You can now assemble your Batarang, which is kinda nice, made of metal, with a bit of weight to it. In the end, I am not entirely sure that I did everything the way it was intended (like the key pad part, where I just pressed the same button until it opened... there might be a more 'clever' way to solve that). It's fun for 5-10 minutes, but once you've solved it once, it kind of loses its novelty. At least, it looks good on a shelf. If you're planning to get it, I would wait to get it on sale, because $99.99 is a bit much for what it is. More news at 11:00... Riddle me this, riddle me that. Who is afraid of the big black bat?
  11. Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the most universally acclaimed film in the Dark Knight’s legendary cinematic history when the newly-remastered animated movie Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, comes to 4K Ultra HD for the very first time. From Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment, the film will be available to purchase on 4K Ultra HD on September 12, 2023. The release will also include an all-new featurette Kevin Conroy: I Am The Knight, which takes a look at the legacy of Kevin Conroy, who voiced Batman for 30 years in film, television, video games, and more. Rooted in DC’s acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series and released theatrically on Christmas Day 1993, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has not only been ranked by Time magazine as one of the 10 best Super Hero movies ever but is also arguably the core fans’ all-time favorite Batman film. The movie has been rated at the top of the Dark Knight film franchise by such popular entertainment media as Empire, Screenrant, and Paste. And in the ultimate mainstream salute for its time, Gene Siskel & Robert Ebert didn’t initially review the film during its theatrical release, but later dedicated a portion of their At The Movies weekly TV series to pay compliments to the film – and voice their regret for not giving it the attention it deserved during its original run – when Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was distributed for home entertainment. The 4K HDR/SDR remaster of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was sourced from the 1993 Original Cut Camera Negative and was scanned at 4K resolution. The digital restoration was applied to the 4K scans to remove dirt, scratches, and additional anomalies, but special care was given to not touch the film grain or the animation cel dirt that was part of the original artwork. This is the first time since its theatrical release that it is presented in its 1.85 aspect ratio. The original 2.0 mix and the 5.1 tracks were remastered to remove or improve defects such as pops, ticks, dropouts, and distortion. The animated film features an all-star cast headed by the quintessential voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy, alongside Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives, China Beach) as Bruce Wayne’s love interest, Andrea Beaumont, Mark Hamill (Star Wars franchise) as the Joker, Stacy Keach (Nebraska, Prison Break, Mike Hammer) as Phantasm/Carl Beaumont, Abe Vigoda (Barney Miller, The Godfather) as Salvatore Valestra, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (The F.B.I.) as Alfred, Hart Bochner (Die Hard) as Arthur Reeves, Bob Hastings (McHale’s Navy, The Poseidon Adventure) as Commissioner Gordon, Robert Costanzo (Forget Paris, City Slickers) as Detective Bullock, Dick Miller (Gremlins, The Terminator) as Chuckie Sol, and John P. Ryan (The Right Stuff) as Buzz Bronski. Additional voices included Pat Musick, Marilu Henner, Neil Ross, Ed Gilbert, Jeff Bennett, Jane Downs, Vernee Watson, Charles Howerton, Thom Pinto, and Peter Renaday. The Batman: Mask of the Phantasm filmmaking team is composed of the award-winning core group behind Batman: The Animated Series. Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm directed the film from a screenplay by Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, Martin Pasko, and Michael Reaves, based on a story by Burnett. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm will be available on September 12, 2023, to purchase Digitally from Amazon Prime Video, AppleTV, Google Play, Vudu, and more. 4K Ultra HD Discs will be available to purchase online and in-store at major retailers. Pre-order your copy now. SYNOPSIS: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm opens with the city's most feared gangsters being systematically eliminated, and assumed blame falling on the Caped Crusader. But prowling Gotham Night is a shadowy new villain, the Phantasm, a sinister figure with some link to Batman's past. Can the Dark Knight elude the police, capture the Phantasm and clear his name? Unmasking the Phantasm is just one of the twists in this dazzling animated feature, which provides new revelations about Batman's past, his archrival the Joker, and Batman's most grueling battle ever - the choice between his love for a beautiful woman and his vow to be the defender of right. SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE*: Kevin Conroy: I Am The Knight (New Featurette) – For 30 years, Kevin Conroy defined Batman for multiple generations using only his voice, best exemplified in the landmark film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Conroy passed away in November 2022, but his legacy lives on in 15 films, nearly 400 episodes of animated television series, a dozen video games, and as a live-action Bruce Wayne in the Arrowverse’s 2019-2020 “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event. Several of Conroy’s contemporaries – including animation legend Bruce Timm, Batman producer Michael Uslan and revered voice actress Tara Strong – pay tribute to the star who remains the Dark Knight for millions of Batfans. Bonus episode of Justice League: Unlimited featuring a cameo from Phantasm. *Special features are not available in 4K Ultra HD.

  12. Following the massive success and reception of the most anticipated figure of the last few years, none other than the Mezco One:12 Collective Batman - 1989 Edition, Mezco Toyz decided to double down and announced the next figure in their One:12 Collective line that is sure to sell out instantly and get released in a timely manner: The One:12 Collective Batman - 1992 Edition (Batman Returns)! "The whole process went so smoothly for the first one, it makes all the sense in the world to continue and deliver another Batman." said Nick, a long time collector of the line. "People kept anticipating the Batman 89 for so long, and were SO HAPPY when they finally got it, I can't wait for the Batman Returns version, with the slightly different costume and emblem." ToyFarce received an exclusive early look at the promo pictures for what fans are sure to call "Batman 92" or "Batman Returns Batman". More news at 11:00... Crossing fingers for One:12 Collective Batman 95 next! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  13. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the DC Multiverse wave of The Flash movie, which hits theaters this week (today, in a lot of countries!), by McFarlane Toys. This wave had 6 figures, and 2 vehicles (Batcycle and Batmobile) from the movie. I skipped on the Batmobile (for now...). First off, the main character, the Flash himself. Barry Allen, as portrayed by Ezra Miller, comes with speed force effects, small ones, along with the usual stand and trading card. The likeness is kinda off, and I'd say the suit is a bit too bright (he looks like he's made of Jolly Ranchers!). McFarlane Toys has since released pictures of an upcoming 'Gold Label' variant which seems to have fixed that. Another Flash figure, since the movie seems to have a number of those. This is a fun one because he seems to have the Batman suit from Batman Returns painted red and yellow, and it's gonna be interesting to see what's up with that in the movie. He comes with speed force effects, but larger, more condensed than the other one. Different powers? So many questions! His head sculpt is very rough, though. Not sure why McFarlane Toys always seems to struggle with head sculpts of movie figures... Supergirl, portrayed by Sasha Calle, is a nice figure. She comes with an extra set of hands, and a flight stand (the McFarlane Toys flight stands are pretty great for display). The likeness is a bit better then the 2 Flash figures. I'm interested to see her story, and have heard that she steals every scene she is in. The Michael Keaton Batman figure is a nice one. It's just so surreal to have Keaton back as Batman! It's been known for some time now, but when he appeared in the trailer? Goosebumps. Really excited to see him in it. He comes with extra hands, a grappling hook and a batarang. The suit looks pretty nice, and has a shine to it. Likeness is on par with the Kenner figure from back in the days, a bit... but hey, soft goods cape! Easier to sit him down in the Batmobile that way! The other Batman is a bit of a question mark. The suit, along with the logo, clearly look like a variant of the Ben Affleck Batman suit, but the likeness is terrible. It looks more like the stuntman... Also, other brands, such as Hot Toys, seem to have trouble doing a Ben Affleck face for that figure too... Could it be that it's not him? Interesting... (it's either that, or Ben Affleck did not agree to likeness rights, and all the figures have to look bad on purpose). The figure comes with an extra set of hands to go with the Batcycle. From what we saw in the trailer, this version seems to be the one riding the Batcycle, which is a very nice bike, with lots of details, especially for around $30. The Dark Flash looks like he'll be the film's villain (thanks for the spoiler, Todd!). The design is kinda weird, but weird is what McFarlane Toys does best. Lots of details and textures on this figure. Not much details about him, but I'll assume he's another Flash, and that he turned dark, hence the name! More news at 11:00... Worlds collide... in a theater near you!
  14. Here's my custom Kenner Super Powers Two-Face. It was made from a 3D print that I purchased recently. Just painted and pegged together.
  15. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Huntress figure from the Batman: Hush line from MAFEX. Huntress is the 9th figure in the line (counting the Batman repaint), and is a weird choice, considering she is probably nobody's favorite character from the Batman: Hush comic book, which included almost the entire Bat-family and rogue gallery (at the time). Huntress, or Helena Rosa Bertinelli, is a vigilante that operates out of Gotham City, and a member of the Bat-Family. In the Batman: Hush comic book, she appears only for a few pages, saves Batman after his grapple gun failed and he fell from the sky, and has a quick skirmish with Catwoman later. The MAFEX figure comes with an extra head sculpt, 4 extra pairs of hands, and a staff. Not a lot of accessories with that figure, and sadly no crossbow, which is usually Huntress's go-to weapon. She had an actual gun in the comic book, which she pointed at Catwoman, but since we won't have firearms with DC/Warner figures, we know why it's missing. The crossbow must be in that grey area where it has a trigger, even if it does not shoot bullets, so is considered a firearm, maybe? Huntress is a great figure, as are all the figures from that Batman: Hush line. Great articulation, with an update compared to the other ones as she has thigh swivels (gasp). It also seems that MAFEX has figured out the capes, with this one having wires on the cape but also at the bottom, so you can just fold it nicely at the bottom, or open it wide and it stays put. If only the first Batman came with a cape like this... The only issue I have with it are the pegs for the hands, which are a little too small, and the hands tend to fall off a lot when you handle the figure. More news at 11:00... Tell everyone Huntress did this to you!
  16. Prime Video today announced the acquisition of two new DC animated Batman series, alongside an original animated film from Warner Bros. Animation and DC. The film Merry Little Batman is ordered with a spinoff series, Bat-Family, along with a two-season order for Batman: Caped Crusader, from executive producers Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, and Matt Reeves. The Batman animated titles will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories. Batman: Caped Crusader is an all-new animated series and reimagining of the Batman mythology through the visionary lens of executive producers Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, and Matt Reeves. Utilizing state-of-the-art animation techniques, this powerful creative partnership will once again reinvent the character and his iconic rogue’s gallery with sophisticated storytelling, nuanced characters, and intense action sequences, all set in a visually striking world. In addition to Timm, Abrams, and Reeves, Ed Brubaker and Sam Register are set to executive produce the series. Based on characters from DC, Batman: Caped Crusader is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Bad Robot Productions, and 6th & Idaho. Merry Little Batman is an animated family action comedy destined to join the rogue's gallery of classic holiday movies. When young Damian Wayne finds himself alone in Wayne Manor on Christmas Eve, he must transform into “Little Batman'' to defend his home and Gotham City from the crooks and supervillains intent on destroying the holidays. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based on characters from DC, Merry Little Batman is directed by Mike Roth (Regular Show) from a screenplay by Morgan Evans (Teen Titans Go!). Roth also serves as executive producer, alongside Sam Register. Following the events of Merry Little Batman, Bat-Family follows Batman, Alfred, and young Damian Wayne—who has now taken on the mantle of Little Batman—alongside a few newcomers to Wayne Manor, as they navigate the fun and frustrations of life as a superfamily. Jase Ricci, Mike Roth, and Sam Register are set to executive produce the series, which is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.

  17. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Batman - 1989 Edition from the Mezco One:12 Collective line. No, you are not dreaming. Do not attempt to adjust your computer/cellphone screen. It's happening. The review of a figure 3 years in the making. We've heard the complaints, we've memed it to death, but now, it's time to give it its due: It's a godd$*n nice figure! For reminders, the figure was announced and up for pre-order in January 2020, and supposed to be out by August to October of that same year... and it was delayed... and delayed... and delayed... No information or updates from Mezco during that whole time, which is why it became such a hot subject, and when the emails saying that they would start processing it started to pop up last month, people did not believe it at first. (There was even some weird custom that someone made and tried to pass as the real thing in early march... Those were strange times). But now, it is out! The box is quite sober, as usual with Mezco one:12 collective. Logo on the front, promo pics we had already seen on the back. There are 2 levels of inserts inside. First off the body. When you open the figure, you'll notice it has a powder coating on it. It's to protect the rubber body. Mezco released a statement about it, and if you've handled a seamless body before, you'll know it. A quick wash, either using a microfiber cloth and a bit of water, or a rubber protectant product and tadaa, it will be gone. And D$*N, this thing looks amazing. It has an articulated metal armature under the rubber, which allows for great posing. I know some collectors have posted about being frustrated by the body not moving as it should, or having loose arms or legs, but I can only talk from experience, and mine turned up great. Batman - 1989 Edition comes with 3 extra heads, on top of the one with moveable eyes, 6 extra hands, 2 capes (wired and not wired, more on that later), 4 batarangs, 1 batarang with wire, a grapnel launcher with hook, a grapnel launch with hook and wire or a collapsed grapnel launcher, a gauntlet, a time bomb, a shuriken and a couple more tiny accessories I'm not sure about (things that come from his utility belt!), along with the usual big circular Mezco stand and post. Pro tip: Dorklair posted a very helpful tip about the wired cape, which only has wires every 2 seams: You can mod it very easily by adding wires (either from twist ties that you get from other toys, or just getting actual metal wire from a hardware store) directly into the seams that do not have a wire. It's pretty easy, they slide right up, and changes everything. Now, should we have to do that ourselves after waiting for 3 years for a $100 figure, that's another story... Here is is, in all its glory. The figure feels nice in hand, moves quite easily, and the likeness is very good. The moveable eyes on the headsculpt work fine, even if it looks like he is permanently surprised (the eyes being bigger), and the 3 other headsculpts look awesome. That is one of the best 1989 Batman figure out there. Some could say it was even worth the wait, but I'll wait to say that once everybody has gotten theirs, as there are a lot of people still waiting for it, unfortunately... More news at 11:00... I'm Batman.
