waits for news of McFarlane’s DC product

It’s coming, I bet. We just need to be patient a bit longer, as patience pays off.

This is kind of a random one that gave me a little chuckle (sorry…slow news cycle for DC merch). DC Trinity snuggy-like blankets :slightly_smiling_face:. Available on BBTS. Think the kids would get a kick out of dad wearing the Superman one while watching TV.

@biff_pow will report here as soon I see something :slightly_smiling_face:. Did you look at Neca’s 89 Batman?

If you look at NECA’s Burton Batman too hard, it could break. rimshot

Speaking of Keaton Batman figures, has anyone seen this? I just randomly discovered it on eBay:

Regarding Keaton Batmen, I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: this is still the best mass market figure of him (every detail is perfect to the movie):

Huh. I went on a little mini reflection on mass market figures and seems like it didn’t post! Oh well…not typing that again.

Haven’t seen that bendable figure before, but I don’t have a history collecting those.

Nice pick for Keaton :slightly_smiling_face:. I would still pick the Neca over that Mattel figure, but it would be an unfair comparison. Wouldn’t consider Neca mass market, really.

The NECA movie accurate Batman (as opposed to it’s original release in video game coloring) was available at Toys R Us, so I’d say he constitutes a mass market release.

Their Batman is definitely a nice figure. However, Mattel’s is the game winning score for me in every way. The cape on their figure has perfect texturing and details, as does the rest of his suit, especially the cowl. Conversely, NECA’s Keaton cowl just looks off to me in some way.

Mattel’s rendition is also highly articulated, easy to pose and will not break under normal posing conditions. So it has that going for it, which is nice. :slightly_smiling_face:

@Vroom true, I forgot about their Toys R Us presence. Comment retracted. I do feel like they exist in a weird in-between place right now though. Not exactly Mezco or Sideshow, but not of the abundance and availability of Mattel.

Given your praise, I will have to check it out again. Maybe get it along with the matching Reeve Superman. Think ebay prices are pretty high for both though.

The Multiverse Reeve Superman is as perfectly detailed as the Keaton Batman. His articulation isn’t as good though, which is his only drawback in my eyes.

As @Vroom had mentioned Funko pop is making an Alfred Pop with a Wayne Manor prop. Available for pre-order on BBTS. Here’s a pic.

my one real problem with the 4" multiverse keaton is the neck articulation. they gave him a 2 piece cowl the jerks!

Thanks for the updates @biff_pow

  • :joy: The Superman stocking gave me a good chuckle.
  • That Flash looks really cool. Hope it won’t be plagued with the same delays other Hot Toys DC products seem to have. Ace Collectibles also making a CW Flash
  • I really like the Iron Studios Mini Co figurines. They have a certain quality & heft to them that feels nice. In addition the the JL movie figurines, they’re also doing more classic comic book designs.
  • That Batgirl statue by Frank Cho is unique :slightly_smiling_face:. He’s the next artist to take over the Cover Girls statue line. I regret missing out on his Designer Series Wonder Woman. Maybe he makes one in this line?

I desperately need this, i just got the dark knight pop with batman and james gordon on the rooftop with the bat signal, it’s awesome. But i need an alfred pop bad!

Being that Alfred is nearly ignored when it comes to merch, I too might get that Pop set.
