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

This week, ToyFarce proudly presents the DC Multiverse Batman and Robin wave with Mr. Freeze build-a-fi... Collect-to-Build figure! This is a special one for ToyFarce, a review over 3 years in the making after 'leaking' that wave back in 2021, everybody laughed, and look at us now... ToyFarce wished that wave into existence, and we couldn't be happier with the result!

In January 2021, McFarlane Toys was barely a year into the DC Multiverse line, and after seeing a few posts about 'leaks' of upcoming figures, we decided to post the most absurd list of 'leaked upcoming figures', which consisted of figures from Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, everyone's 2 favorite Batman movies. The reception was pretty great, with lots of collectors commenting that it was either totally fake, very wrong of them to do that, or that they would still buy them. Over the last 3 years, the article kept popping up every now and then on the internet, with collectors asking "Hey, is this still happening? When?". Fast forward to San Diego Comic Con 2023, when McFarlane Toys actually announced that wave. Our DMs exploded. And now, they're here! There has been a few instances of ToyFarce articles ending up happening, but this is by far, my favorite one!

Batman, as portrayed by George Clooney, is a stunning figure. It's a darker version of the ones from the Batman Ultimate Movie Collection 6-pack, which already looked great. Batman comes with a couple of small ice freeze effects and the legs of Mr. Freeze. Sadly, no Bat credit card accessory!

Robin, played by Chris O'Donnell, also looks great. He comes with 2 bigger ice freeze effects and the arms of Mr. Freeze. The likeness is pretty good, compared to the early DC Multiverse live action figures.

Batgirl, portrayed by Alicia Silverstone, looks pretty good as well (perhaps better than the one in the movie?). She comes with Mr. Freeze's head, shoulder pads and freeze gun, with freezing effect!

Poison Ivy, played by Uma Thurman, is the sleeper hit of that wave, I feel. The likeness is actually pretty good! The paint is great, the colors really pop, in contrast to the other figures. She comes with Mr. Freeze's "trunk".

And last but not least, the Mr. Freeze figure, as played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The likeness is not great, and the paint used for it really reminds me of the colors of the old Kenner action figures. I've seen collectors repaint theirs with a more chrome paint, and the result is pretty awesome. Still, it's pretty amazing to have action figures of Batman and Robin in 2024, and that Mr. Freeze figure is awesome, just for that!

There has been no words about if we can expect more, but there are definitely a few more characters or suits from that movie that would make great figures: the Ice Suits for Batman, Robin and Batgirl, Bane, a few other outfits for Poison Ivy (especially the red Gorilla suit!). Looking forward to see those as Gold Label!

These figures are excellent. From one of the worst Batman movies, these colorful characters from BATMAN & ROBIN really lend themselves to make great action figures. Poison Ivy might be one of the best female figures ever produced. Mr. Freeze is also a show stopper. The Bat trio are well done as well. I do hope McFarlane does a Bane figure from the movie eventually.

If there is a BATMAN FOREVER line, they could do a Kilmer Batman, O'Donnell Robin in red & green costume, Carrey Riddler in hopefully his first appearance at Two-Face's lair, & Jones Two-Face in all his glory. They could surprise us with a BAF of Bane from BATMAN & ROBIN. Just an idea.

The stills "from the movie" pics are amazing! Really has the tone with the lighting. I really like that the figures turned out great, these characters deserve some love!

Totally agree, McFarlane really knocked it out of the park on this line. From Batman to Mr. Freeze, all figures have great sculpts.
