It's wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce review!
This week, we're having a look at the Suicide Squad wave from McFarlane Toys' DC Multiverse line. Better late than never, I know. Those were sitting in my Pile of Loot for a while, and I finally got them a bit before Christmas. It was also a great occasion to show off the awesome street diorama I got from @78pts.of.articulation! The greatest part of that wave is of course the King Shark build-a-figure, which looks just like Nanaue from the movie, in all his goofiness!
First off, Harley Quinn with the red dress from the movie. I didn't think the likeness looked great from the promo pictures, but it turns out you can definitely see Margot Robbie in there. The details and tattoo look pretty great too and she comes with the javelin from... Javelin, who met his demise earlier in the movie.
Bloodsport looks pretty good too, apart from his severe case of plastic diaper (some DC Multiverse figures have that). He comes with 2 swords which is nice, but as he mostly uses guns in the movie, it's a bit meh. (I know, I know, it's because of Warner Bros studios, yadda yadda, but his guns don't even look like guns, so there could have been a loophole!).
Peace Maker was also one of the figures I wanted the most from that wave, with the upcoming series coming soon. It's a pretty decent basic figure. The likeness with the mask on is pretty decent, compared to the unmasked version which looked like John Cena has a stroke. He comes with a sword, but I've seen many collectors solve that issue by either getting third party guns for him, or 3D printing it themselves.
Polka Dot Man. Who would have thought we'd ever get a cinematic version of Polka Dot Man, let alone an action figure for it, huh? Polka Dot Man had a great part in the movie where he could see everybody as his mother, whom he hates. He comes with his goggles, a polka dot throwing effect (yep), and an extra arm band (which i haven't figured why it came with it. Any idea?)
And now, it's time for the MAIN EVENT! The King Shark build-a-figure. That thing is so much fun! Weirdly enough, he has decent articulation on his arms. The legs are kinda stuck due to the shorts, but I've seen third party soft goods shorts that enabled the legs to move a lot better (there's also a freaking third party tuxedo for him, and i'm so tempted...). Obviously, you're not gonna put him in Spider-man poses, but that was never the goal. It still is a very fun action figure.
The next DC Multiverse figures I should pick will be the whole Three Joker wave (including the Gamestop one). Pretty excited about those, as I liked the comic book and that Batman figure looks like it could be the definitive McFarlane Toys Batman.
