Remember how Poe stopped collecting DCUC? Well, I always made the exception that I’d continue to collect Bat-characters, and therefore I’m pretty damned excited about Wave 16. I’ve already pre-ordered the wave (gotta get that Bane, and Jonah Hex has so much original sculpting I’ll probably hang on to him–but Mercury will be hitting the trade list).
Mattel released carded pics of the wave on their Facebook page, and I’ve posted them after the jump.
While in the past I’ve thought that double jointed knees and elbows sometimes give action figures a “limp” look, I’ve always thought some characters–particularly Batman–need them. We’re getting closer to that perfect Batman; Robin and Az-Bats have those joints. Fingers crossed that we get a super-articulated Batman in the near future…
Bat-fans are complaining that Azrael Batman’s gauntlet fins are apparently reversed. Oddly enough, I can’t find a single artistic reference for this particular stage of the Az-Bats suit on the Web, so I’ll have to take their word for it. Maybe they’re a separate piece and it’ll be an easy fix.
