ToyFarce: McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Arkham City with Collect-to-Build Solomon Grundy Wave Review And Images

It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!

This week, we're having a look at the DC Multiverse Arkham City wave from McFarlane Toys, with the Collect-to-Build Solomon Grundy (It's like a Build-a-figure, but with less lawsuits). The Arkham video game series is one of my favorite game franchise, so I needed that wave. Last week, we sadly lost Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in the Animated Series and the Arkham video game series. Rest in Peace, Kevin.


First off, Batman. Now, THAT is a Arkham City Batman. It is day and (dark) night compared to the Arkham Asylum one that McFarlane Toys released in their first year of DC Multiverse. This figure has the proportions (mostly) right, and a perfect head sculpt. Batman comes with a grappler gun, and Grundy's legs. Easily one of the top 3 DC Multiverse Batman figures for me (and God knows there is a ton of them...).




Catwoman is also a nice figure, with a great headsculpt. The rubber 'diaper' is a bit too pronounced on the front, but whoever sculpted the back... really loves his job. A great attention to detail! Selina Kyle (spoilers!) comes with her whip, which could have been a bit more rubbery, as this one is made of solid plastic and does not move, and Grundy's chest.




Oswald Cobblepot, the Penguin is the one that disappointed me the most in that wave, as he still looks really good, but the big rubber jacket basically turns him into a brick with arms. The details on the jacket are nice, though. The Penguin comes with an umbrella (-ella, -ella, hey, hey...) and Grundy's head and jacket.




Ra's Al Ghul, which was an important part of the game, is a bit bulkier than he was in the game (if i remember correctly), and has super saiyan hair. The figure looks pretty decent, with lots of details on his outfit. The leader of the League of Assassins comes with a sword with arabic writing on it, and Grundy's arms, the final part of the Collect-to-build figure.




Solomon Grundy, born on a monday... The Collect-to-build figure is very easy to assemble (I have bad memories of the Last Knight on Earth Bane, which hurt my fingers a few times). You can choose to have the jacket on or go topless. The figure looks great, since it's a monster and McFarlane Toys knows how to make them, with lots of nice details and textures, the face looks awesome... BUT... it's reaaaally small. It's barely taller than the other figures from this line, while Grundy was a giant in the game, and could have been a 'Megafigure'.

Again, another instance where the game or movie designers actually out designed the actual comic book creators. This is the best Batman and Catwoman figures yet. Need that Solamon Grundy. Guess I'll have to get that Cobblepot and RAG figure to get it.
