This was the Batman figure I originally wanted from the Multiverse line,at least until the movie version releases.This is basically a repaint of the first ,more subtle grey release,but a damn good one.The utility belt has also changed a bit this time around and the arms sport nicely sculpted gauntlets.Head sculpt is the same and with the exception of the added gauntlets,so is the rest of the sculpt.They even added a super ,cool looking serial number right smack dab in the lower, center part of the capes interior for all to see when Batman is in his battle stance!YAY 🙂 I can’t tell you how much I hate that sh%& 😦 Besides that,the figure is super solid…If you can manage to find one with more discreet stampings.Enjoy the pickies!
Oh yeah I forgot the blue fiery,electrical thingies.BZZZZZZZ!
Let’s play a game.We’ll call it the “Other Characters Azrael Could Easily Be Mistaken For” game!
1.An updated version of Medieval Spawn (updated,medieval- oxymoron?)
2.ezio auditore da Firenze (Assassins Creed)
4.Generic Indiana Jones villain
5.The Mincer (Shredder’s evil-er twin)
6.Anno Domini-Cobra Commander’s religious consultant
Can you guys think of any?
Surprised by the wifey today with some DC Multiverse figures! She took a gamble and figured I would like the Azrael figure and then threw Batman and Deadshot into the mix 🙂 My interest in action figures has been subsiding as of late, but I am lacking in decently articulated 3 3/4 DC figures, so this line should fill that void nicely.The movie version of Batman from the Multiverse line is one figure I will seriously be coveting and should be released sometime in April I believe. For now this version will do and isn’t as bad as I thought It would be. In fact ,he looks pretty friggin’ cool!The paint really pops on this figure and photographs well.My lone gripe would have to be the lack of any weapons or accessories. Nothing.Not even a projectile in the shape of a bat. Not even a bat in the shape of a projectile.Yup. Nada.That said,the sculpt and articulation points are this figures saving grace and I recommend picking this one up If you ever come across it in the wiz-ild.
“Look what I can do!”
I promise this will be the final post about the stinkin’ Styrofoam fort-Unless of course I decide to deck it out with Batman Quick Tech accessories, Batmobile , etc. For this will officially be turned into a “Bat Fortress”! Fellow blogger Combo http://combollectoractionfigurerev.blogspot.com/ commented on the fact that I should add a little paint,and that’s something I may consider doing in the near future. Maybe a mixture of black and grey, IDK. But I really want this to be exclusive to my lone DKR Batman figure, which I still believe is one of the nicest looking 3 3/4 Batman figures out there, articulation aside.
