With a number of DC Multiverse
reveals having been made by McFarlane Toys
this past week, we wanted to round everything up in one news post for you, plus bring some new details to light that have been revealed since the initial reveals where made.
Many of the new details come via Unparalleled Universe
and a live-stream video he did with Tye Butler
who works at McFarlane Toys. It's a pretty long video but you can check out the entire thing in the link above.
So first we have the newly announced wave of figures that will see the return of the Build-A-Figure
concept to the line. this wave will include figures of Superman (The Infected), Batman from Dark Nights: Metal, The Batman Who Laughs with Sky Tyrant Wings
and Robin Earth 22
. The Build-A-Figure will be The Merciless
. This wave will be available for pre-order in August
Originally we thought the Robin
figure was going to include three different headsculpts. However that is not the case according to Tye. He says the figure will be done more like a chase figure. It will have ONE headsculpt, but there will be three different versions of the figure released. Each headsculpt will have a different expression. So if you want to army build all 3 versions, you will have to hunt down the three figures. Robin
will also have a real metal chain, a nice ab-crunch, single-hinged elbows and one of the bigger pieces for the Build-A-Figure.
will have double-jointed elbows. Tye in the video indicated they are continuing to work on scale issues within the line making sure the female figures are in better scale with the male figures. He also noted the Robin
figure is in scale with the likes of Batman
Tye said he has seen at least two other Build-A-Figures
planned for the line.
An additional wave of single release figures was also announced this week which includes The Joker
based on the DC Rebirth
comic books, Azrael in Batman Armor
based on the hit comic book series, BATMAN: CURSE OF THE WHITE KING
from the Teen Titans
animated series, and The Flash
. his wave will be out later this Fall and available for pre-order in August. No indications of this wave having a Build-A-Figure.
figure will have double-jointed elbows and knees and also include lightning effect running pieces that you can get a look at below in our GALLERY
The Modern Joker
figure will have similar articulation to the Arkham version.
For those wondering, The Birds of Prey Harley Quinn
movie figure is on definite hold. It is unclear if it will ever see release or not.
There was also a 7" Flashpoint Batman
figure announced, but all we know about it's release is that it's coming in Winter 2020. The figure will have pistols that are removable from the holster.
In the video Tye stated one of the things they get requests for and he would love to see is a Batman: Knightfall
wave with Bane as the Build-A-Figure
, and he would also love to see Reign of Superman
wave with a Doomsday Build-A-Figure
DC Multiverse 2-Packs
where announced this past week which will include the following - Flash/(Batman Earth 52) Red Death, Nightwing/Red Hood
And from the Batman/Deathstroke
