About this deal
The panel then opened up to fan questions, with McFarlane promising that questions "deemed worthy" would grant the fan a free toy. The creator walked right into the crowd to personally hand the microphone to fans. The next fan asked about bringing super groups to McFarlane Toys, mentioning the evil Batmen from Dark Knights: Metal, the Legion of Super-Heroes and other teams. In his free time, Shane loves going for runs and playing with his 16-year-old beagle Butterscotch. Butters for short, she has been the greatest love of his and inspires him everyday, both creatively and emtionally. On top of that, he's now a huge collector. He loves Funko Pop, McFarlane Toys, and Neca's huge line of horror figures. In the last two years he has been going to a lot of conversations to buy an unhealthy amount of figures. This has also allowed him to meet some of his favorite filmmakers/actors like Mike Flanagan, Matthew Lillard, John Carpenter, Grace Caroline Curry, Steve Burns and Kathryn Newton. The Banshees are the new airplane," McFarlane said, talking about how exciting the Avatar figures will be to play with. Continuing to discuss the banshee's immense details, McFarlane explained how the figures change colors, include swappable heads, and can be ridden by the Na'vi figures.
The incredibly detailed DC Build-A The Dark Knight Trilogy Batman 7-Inch Scale Action Figure is designed with up to 22 points of articulation for a full range of posing and play. The figure includes 1 of 4 pieces that when combined with the rest of The Dark Knight Trilogy Build-A line (sold separately) will assemble Bane. In the Dark Knight wave, all three individually sold villains wear suit pants and nice shoes, yet there’s no parts re-use. Doing so would have been easy, and few might even have objected. But no: different creases, different shoes. These bad guys remain appropriately individualistic. Body BuildingFor another fan, McFarlane brought the microphone into the crowd so they could ask their question, holding up a Gunslinger Spawn figure with the character riding on a horse for them to have and enjoy. The figure includes 1 of 4 pieces that when combined with the rest of The Dark Knight Trilogy Build-a line will assemble Bane Batman has no limits. Based on Christian Bale’s portrayal of Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of films, this rendition of Batman is not to be missed. As a child, Bruce Wayne watched as his parents were brutally killed in Gotham City’s Crime Alley. Traumatized by their deaths, he devoted his life to becoming the world’s greatest weapon against crime the Batman! He’s a master detective and an expert martial artist, but his greatest weapon is his mind. Batman has a plan for every occasion, as well as high-tech weapons, gadgets, and vehicles to assist him in his relentless pursuit of justice! The string on his bow also has some flex, so he can pose in an archer’s position. He does not, however, have an individual arrow that can display that way.
One question must be asked, though. Who approved the bios on the trading cards? Because besides the Batman one, which references his retirement between movies 2 and 3, these are not the movie biographies at all. Ledger’s Joker does not have white skin, and this Harvey Dent was not scarred by acid, but burned by fire. It’s an odd oversight for the McFarlane Dark Knight Trilogy figures. More Movie Love? Attending fans sat down in the panel to be greeted by McFarlane, finding exclusive collectibles inspired by DC's 2011 storyline Flashpoint waiting for each of them in their seats. Seven figures were revealed for DC Multiverse: Duke Thomas/Signal, Catwoman (purple outfit), Batman from the Hush storyline, the Joker from his recent solo series and more. Two megafigures shown were Mongul and Frankenstein. Batman includes three Batarangs and his grapnel gun, all cast in bronze plastic like the old Mattel figures. There’s no place on his belt to attach them, so he can only pose with one at a time. The sculpt on his suit is a good one, though the armored codpiece is a little odd as a flexible piece. As is often the case, the cape feels quite narrow — maybe a future Gold Label variant could give him a larger cloth one.
A prominent and well-educated District Attorney, Harvey Dent fought valiantly to uphold the law and make the city a better place. In any other city, it would have worked. Not in Gotham a place where greed and corruption stretch from the depths of Crime Alley to the shimmering heights of the mayor’s office. Dent’s spiral into Gotham’s madness came swiftly after a criminal threw acid into his face, leaving half of it horribly scarred. Seeking refuge in the underbelly of Gotham, the name Harvey Dent and all the good it stood for was lost and Two-Face rose from the darkness. No name strikes terror into the hearts of Gotham’s citizens quite like the Joker. In a city overrun with larger-than-life criminals, the always-laughing villain stands alone. A complete psychopath with no moral compass whatsoever the Joker, whose real name and identity remain completely unknown, is characterized by his chalk-white skin, green hair and a permanent rictus grin stretched across his face. But there isn’t a single thing funny about this particular clown, who only finds humor in the suffering of others. Did they do the same for Cillian Murphy’s Scarecrow? It’s much harder to say. Up close, the eyes do seem to have it, a touch. Legally, though, I doubt this is considered an actor likeness. Let’s Face It…
As a build-a-figure, Beast Boy’s one up on Bane, whose mid torso area is super-soft, rubbery plastic over a ball jointed post, almost like a scarecrow. This can create some awkwardness… The figure includes 1 of 4 pieces that when combined with the rest of The Dark Knight Trilogy Build-a line will assemble Bane. Bane has three sets of hands, the right one gloved and the left not. His grip is larger, though his dependence on guns is less. For those looking for a holiday gift," said moderator Tetrault of a '66 Batman lunchbox with Batman, Robin, Penguin and Joker figures, met with excitement by McFarlane as he discussed his days of owning a Batman lunchbox when he was younger. The first question was about potentially creating swappable heads that could be used across all figures. McFarlane mentioned that he would be getting "technical" to answer that question, bringing up how they might allow for lateral movements and so on, but the company isn't working on these at this time.
Also met with excitement were figures inspired by The Dark Knight trilogy -- Scarecrow, Batman, Joker and Two-Face. Collecting all four allows for a build-a-figure: Tom Hardy's Bane.
Up next were McFarlane Toys' Super Powers line featuring retro-looking figures like Batman, Superman and Darkseid, as well as a plane for Superman with extendable, boxing-glove-like arms and the Batwing for the Caped Crusader to be placed into. "That thing is so goofy that it's awesome," McFarlane said of Superman's plane, noting how it features a cell for villains to be placed into. Beast Boy doesn’t sport the usual disc-and-pin elbows of larger McFarlanes, but his elbow joints have a wider range than they seem to, with single hinges that can still allow the arms to fold way in. For a chest-beating pose, for example. The double ball joints in his torso allow for some great character-based posing, as he can shrug one shoulder up and one down, or adopt more dynamic action stances. Bane and Gain Also shown from the Super Powers line were Nightwing, Wonder Woman and Deathstroke. Other vehicles featured were the Batmobile and Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet. Complete sets of the Dark Knight Trilogy wave have been tough to find online, but as they start to ship en masse, they ought to populate more and more spaces. For fans of McFarlane’s movie figures, they’re essential, and to scale with other DC characters. The Titans are more for comic fans, though there’s definitely a solid attempt in the sculpt to make them seem like suits that could exist for real.No name strikes terror into the hearts of Gotham’s citizens quite like the Joker™.
