McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Recap Plus New Details For The Robin Earth 22 And More

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.

Infected Superman 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, Cyborg 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.

The Flash 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 from the Batman: Arkham Origins video game.

Earth-52 Batman vs.The Flash will be an Amazon exclusive, released around November time frame and should be up for pre-order in August.

Nightwing vs. Red Hood will be in stores Oct/Nov and will also be up for pre-order in August.

Pre-orders for the Batman vs. Deathstroke set will go live in August, and it will see release this Fall.

The 2-pack Flash will have a different head and different hands from the single packed version.

The Red Death figure uses a different body from Flash but will also have double-jointed elbows and knees.



The final thing that was teased this week was an image showing some blacked out figures. These are being listed as CHASE figures, and they appear to be some type of variant for the Arkham Joker out on shelves now and the Arkham Origins Deathstroke.

Love how Mcfarlane is focused in the Bat-family and Batman related villains, dark villains included Wich actually is not a surprise considering his style.

Nice looking class photo hehehe I hope to own 'batman who laughs' once his prices go down in amazon...I was hoping batman devastator to be bigger like the hulk? seems to be more on the wider side instead of height

If they do a wave of figures based on Death of Superman, it would be the first figures I purchase from this line.

Is it just me; or is the Rabid Robin figure missing hip joints ?

These look great, but I wish Mcfarlane would do more of a dc universe line. Anyway I like what I'm seeing. I'm glad where getting flash,and hope they do alternate version of that superman.

So on that Robin figure, turns out its going to be more of a chase deal. The figure doesn't come with 3 headsculpts, it comes with 1 random packed headsculpt, so you will have to try and hunt around for all three heads if you want them.

TheChosenPrime - 2020-07-24 @ 8:51 pm

Can't wait to see the new Joker!

Belmont13 - 2020-07-24 @ 7:06 pm

Interesting maybe the Joker will have better paint.

JayC - 2020-07-24 @ 6:48 pm
We know how Todd loves his chase figures and it looks like the McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse line is about to get the chase figure treatment. While the McFarlane folks didn't specifically say this was a tease for the Multiverse line, based on this image it looks like we will be getting some kind of chase figures for the Arkham video game Joker and recently announced Arkham Origins Deathstroke figures. We will be sure to update once more details become available.
