I wonder if McFarlanes license with DC would allow him to do DC figures via Kickstarter? Typically these license agreements have specifics in them that limit what is permissible.
Considering how much money his Spawn figure did, I can only imagine a Batman in the same vein would crush.
If he does I think it would be interesting if he gave soft goods a go, since huge sculpted capes work good for statues, but not so much for action figures. The other route would be something like the Amazing Yamauchi Batman's cape, but that is kind of a messy cape.
It's painfully obvious the DC license isn't a big priority for MacFarlane. He just picked it up to improve his position in the mainstream and get him a little closer to reacquiring his lost relevance. Let's face it, even being indirectly affiliated with DC/Warners has probably done more for all Mac's Spawn passion projects than Fortnite ever could.
It's just to bad the license didn't end up with somebody that would give a crap.
That would sound fun and interesting for those who might like that style ?, for capes i wouldn't mind if they were either soft rubber? or soft-goods to make it better
sure way not i would love to see that and maybe other characters too
Other than the crazy capes, I don't really see his Batman as all that distinctive. He wasn't really "THE Todd McFarlane" at that point. It looked a lot like standard John Byrne type artwork.... just with crazy capes sometimes. If he does make one, I hope it's way down the line after he's put out other much needed characters.
I'm all in on this. A McFarlane styled Batman would be awesome to have. I definitely see this as another Kickstarter or maybe a website exclusive of some sort. Hope if this gets made he'll be in the same 7 inch scale as the current McFarlane DC Multiverse line.
Hey, here's a wild and crazy idea, how about the Toddster gets off his butt and makes a DC character who isn't Batman or Superman related.
I think it's a safe bet that we're getting a Mcfarlane Style Batman but my question would be if he plans this to be a DC Multiverse Deluxe Release or something like an exclusive sold only thru Mcfarlane Toys.com. I want it either way.
