, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review
This week, we're having a look at the DC Multiverse Arkham Knight
mini-wave from McFarlane Toys
. Last week, we checked the Arkham City
wave, with the Solomon Grundy
"Collect To Build
" figure. After that wave came out, McFarlane Toys
doubled down by annoucing another Arkham video games-centric wave, with Red Hood
from Arkham Knight
, and the Joker
(infected version) from Arkham City
(which also appeared in Arkham Knight that way).
First off, Red Hood
, as he appeared in the (forgettable
) Red Hood Story pack DLC
for Arkham Knight
. Red Hood
, or Jason Todd
, was actually one of the main villains of the Arkham Knight game, the Arkham Knight
), and turned good again during the game. The DLC was not mindblowing but gave us that cool design with the jacket and the hood over his mask. Red Hood
comes with some of the weirdest effects (small explosion
, and punch thing effect
, maybe?), due to the 'no weapon
' rule, BUT... he does come with trigger finger hands
, and if you have a McFarlane Toys Munitions packs
, you can get the perfect accessories for him (aka 2 guns
, as he appeared in Arkham Knight
, is another beautifully sculpted figure. There was a 'Gold label
' monochrome version of it that was released earlier, but I'm glad they decided to release a 'normal color
' version (as if it was a surprise...
). The Scarecrow
was voiced by John Noble
) in the game, for that extra spooky voice. It was the main villain of the game with the Arkham Knight
, and the figure comes with zero accessories... He has needles
for hands, I guess he doesn't need any!
The infected Joker
is what the Joker looked like in Arkham City
, after injecting himself with Titan
and becoming a huge monster at the end of the first game, Arkham Asylum
. This figure is basically a repaint of the Arkham Asylum Joker
, released during the first year of DC Multiverse, except he couldn't have a gun, so they gave him... a sword
. You know, the one thing he never used in the game!
"What am I supposed to do with that? Become a pirate?"
