New DC Multiverse Batman Designed By Todd McFarlane Walmart Exclusive Figure Revealed

Todd McFarlane, one of the most iconic comic book artists of the late 20th century, has unveiled a brand-new DC Multiverse Batman action figure designed, created and produced by McFarlane and his award-winning McFarlane Toys company.

This new Batman action figure is inspired from the mind of Todd McFarlane. McFarlane has created a new never-before-seen before version of Batman’s costume. It features a Black Cape and Cowl, comes with two swords, a base, and includes a collectible art card with Todd McFarlane's Batman artwork on front and character biography on the back. The incredibly detailed 7-inch scale figure is designed with McFarlane Toys' signature "Ultra Articulation" with up to 22 moving parts for a full range of posing and play.

In the 1980s, Todd McFarlane began drawing Batman professionally, working on the classic storyline "Batman: Year Two™" in Detective Comics™, and creating iconic artwork, including his dynamic cover for Batman #423. Todd went on to become a titan of the comic book industry but has always had an affinity for Batman.

"Batman has always been my favorite character- excluding Spawn," said McFarlane, creative force and CEO of McFarlane Toys. "I've always liked the fact that Batman has no superpowers. When it comes down to it, he's just a dude in a costume trying to combat evil. Conceivably, if Batman were in a huge battle in space, without any of his gadgets and tech, he could potentially die, unlike Superman™. I've always had an affinity for Batman, and it’s an honor to design a brand new version of a Batman figure for all fans and collectors."

McFarlane Toys is also bringing collectors and fans a brand-new collector program. With the launch of the new Batman figure by Todd McFarlane, McFarlane Toys has announced its new McFarlane Gold Label Collection Series that will feature characters from your favorite pop-culture and entertainment brands. All figures released in the McFarlane Gold Label Collection will be highly limited and showcased in limited- edition packaging with a McFarlane Toys Gold Label Collection printed in foil. Look for more McFarlane Toys Collector Series announcement coming soon.

The McFarlane Gold Label Collection Batman by Todd McFarlane figure will be available for pre-order in mid-Oct at Walmart.com. The figure is exclusive to Walmart but will be available at select international specialty retailers. The retailer release date is January 2021. MSRP $19.99

It does look cool, really feeling that legends of Dark Knight line vibes but I would love to see Batman figure in style of Todd's art  like Batman Year 2 style.

The cape's shoulder shape is bugging me, so weird, might as well make it taller like a spike or hook.

I think i'm probably the only person offended at this McFarlane Batman. Just on the basis that the core of Batman is that he's not a killer! So not only would he not use guns but also knives, swords, stabbing spikes on his gloves...he's not a ninja! he's also not Deadpool. I don't think McFarlane understands how deadly edged weapons can be.

It's true batman is just a man, but his "power" is always that he's a master detective, scientist, strategist, as well as someone who is learned in many forms of combat.

I just don't see what the thought is behind a "Spawnized" Batman especially when there is no storyline behind it.

If this is a "What If McFarlane created the DC Universe?" then give him the line of comics and lets see!

You are not the only one offended by this figure. This guy is pulling from a deep well and half the "fans" don't even know or like the sludge he's pulling up, no matter how good he tries to make them look. I'm offended by his entire approach to this version of the DC Multiverse. Like I said, is it not just better to let him do a Batman Universe and let someone else do the actual DC Multiverse? Seems like such a waste. While you see Hasbro doing a lot of material from the Spider-Man universe, they're by no means concentrating on almost exclusively one property of their master license.

I don't like this Batman very much either, and all these arguments of yours are completely valid and I agree with them, but in its defense I will say this Bats is not even canonical, It is just a curiosity, rarity or novelty, one of the liberties that Todd has been allowed and nothing more than that and I have honestly seen Fan made designs better than that.

Todd and his &%@$ing chase figures...

An action figure of an  oversaturated character with a boring design made in limited numbers and exclusive to one of the worst retail companies to handle exclusives, nah I'm good.

Todd McFarlane has released a video giving us a better look at the upcoming DC Multiverse 7" Batman figure designed by McFarlane himself. The figure was announced with an official press release a few days ago.In the video Todd mentions there are TWO versions of the figure being done. One with a black cape and one with a dark navy cape. We assume all the black portions on the one figure will be navy blue on the other, but that is not entirely clear since Todd only says the capes.Besides colors, it would also appear that the figures will mix it up with the accessories. Between the two figures we will see two small swords that fit on the back of the figure, batarang, grapple gun, two daggers and night goggles. Best I can tell only one of the figures will come with the two daggers and night goggles.In the original press release it stated Todd was launching a McFarlane Gold Label Collection Series of highly limited released figures that were showcased in limited- edition packaging with a McFarlane Toys Gold Label Collection printed in foil.While it wasn't really made clear in the original press release, it looks like one of these two Batman figures will be released under that Gold Label Collection Series banner, and THAT ONE will be exclusive to Walmart stores. In turn that leads us to believe thatthe other one will be done as a general release. I am guessing the Gold Label Collection one will have the extra set of daggers and the night goggles and probably feature the dark navy colors. Both figures should also come with a base and art card.We created some screen caps from the video giving you a better look at the figure from what we saw the other day. Check those out in our GALLERY and you can also watch the full video below as well.If we get more clarification on the two different figures and how they will be released, we will be sure to update you here.

Interesting design to be honest. Not really super interested, but more curious about what other characters he'll be doing in his own style.

And sure, another Batman, he's being doing almost every version possible but that's what sells. I don't think DC is complaining. Let's be honest, for more casual fans, Batman, along with Wonder Woman, Supes and any other "main" member of the Justice League, are characters people, and specially children, recognize. Also, the Batmetal figures are selling well I guess, I see a lot of people excited about the different versions of Batman. Otherwise, McFarlane would've stopped producing them if people didn't like them, just like they canceled the Build a Batmobile gimmick Todd was trying to push in order to do something different to BAFs. 

Personally, I haven't found any of the figures McFarlane has released so far to be really appealing to me. I think they showed a Cyborg based on the Teen Titans cartoon, now if he's gonna be the start of the whole main team, I sure will jump in.

I think it would be okay except for the spawny type features that Satam mentioned. Todd is trying to usher in the "spawn" of a new Batman. Keep to the blue print Todd. If its not broke don't fix it.
