McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse The Dark Knight Trilogy 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 Dark Knight Trilogy wave by McFarlane Toys. First announced last year at the New York Comic Con, this was a wave that a lot of people were waiting for, since the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy is still very popular (despite the 3rd movie...). The wave had 4 figures, along with a Build-a-Fi... a Collect-to-Build Bane figure.


Batman, as portrayed by Christian Bale, is a solid figure. Yes, another Batman from McFarlane Toys. Who would have thought? I'd say it's the suit from the third movie, but it might be from the second. The Dark Knight comes with 3 batarangs, a grapple launcher and Bane's legs, along with the usual stand and card. The likeness is pretty good, and he can move about as much as Christian Bale did in the movies (which is more than the Hot Toys figures did, for example).




Scarecrow is a nice one. There hasn't been that many figures of Scarecrow with that outfit. Played by Cillian Murphy in the movies, he was sadly very underused, in my opinion. The figure comes with an alternate set of hands (trigger fingers, so grab your Munition Packs!), and Bane's arms. It's a nice sculpt, with the lower part of the body showing the normal suit, and the top covered with the burlap sack. The head sculpt looks great, and the only issue is his long, hanging sculpted sleeves, which look a bit weird when his arms are bent.




The Joker, the clown prince of crime, from his iconic portrayal by Heath Ledger, is a bit of an odd figure. The sculpt is fine, the likeness is so-so, but the paint apps they used are really bright, solid colors, which are not great. The Joker comes with a pile of cash, which is a fun accessory that can be used in a ton of toy photography, along with Bane's head and hands (3 sets of hands). There was a Joker figure from Mattel back in 2008, that looked a bit cartoony (google 'punch packing joker mattel'), and to me, it's like if they took inspiration from that one for the paint.




Two-Face, as portrayed by Aaron Eckhart, is quite a standard figure. No accessories, no BS. It reminds me of the DC Essentials line from DC Direct, which had barely the 'essentials' to be called action figures (no accessories or extra hands, nothing). He only comes with Bane's "trunk", and has a coin sculpted and painted on his hand. The likeness is not great, and there was clearly more attention on painting the 'crispy' side than the normal one.



The Collect-To-Build figure was born in the darkness, molded by it, and didn't see the light until he was already a man. Bane, as portrayed by Tom Hardy, is a good bonus figure. Good likeness, and moves pretty great. The only issue I have with it is that it reminded me of the movie, and his voice in it.






Next week, we'll check out the DC Multiverse figures from the new Flash movie! Don't forget to bring nuts!
