Bane Batman - Arkham Origins (DC Collectibles) - Wave 1 Rated 4.90 stars by Deaditor Bane was such an imposing force in this game. I felt he was a let down in Asylum having a short basic brute battle with him that didn’t really amount to anything that fun or challenging and lacked Bane’s skill as an intellectual strategist. This Bane beats you down so that you can’t afford to not completely focus your attention on this guy and discovers your identity and almost kills Alfred leading to a rivalry I wanted to see. I was excited to get the figure of him and he’s pretty great. There’s lots of detail and good enough articulation though possibly a bit more would have been welcome for posing he’s bigger than Batman, can hold him as if he were to break the Bat and his venom tubes can be removed adding to the way Batman defeats him. A must have figure if one of the most satisfying...[See More]
Firefly Batman - Arkham Origins (DC Collectibles) - Wave 2 Rated 2.00 stars by Deaditor Hands down the most irritating action figure I have ever owned. I really enjoyed Firefly in this game and the boss battle was so intense but this figure is so easily broken. D.C. direct have this weird obsession with using a clear plastic joint system for whatever reason and the plastic used breaks so easily. I’ve had an arm snap off and both legs so massive surgery was needed and even now I feel disappointed with the result. It’s become one of the rarer more expensive Arkham figures and sure it looks good but if you’re one to remove figures from packaging to pose or display them just be so careful with this one because it breaks so easily and that alone ruins the figures rating. I would find it hard to recommend getting this except for completionists/ MIB collectors or die hard fans of...[See More]
Deathstroke Batman - Arkham Origins (DC Collectibles) - Wave 2 Rated 5.00 stars by Deaditor Does it get any better than Deathstroke? Well it’s a near perfect figure. It’s super articulated, as he should be, has his handgun, staff and sword and the paint job is marvellous. One could see an issue in perhaps an inability to grasp a sword in two hands and the multiverse figures sword is possibly more accurate sword hilt wise (which is why I personally combined the two) but overall he’s just a really well done rendition of the characters who is fun to pose. He was a big part of the trailer and has a memorable fight that pushes Batman, though it’s a shame there wasn’t more than one and the buildup in Knight leads to ultimately a disappointment with just another tank fight no personal face to face duel. They went out of their way to make this figure more articulate than the rest and it...[See More]
Ra's al Ghul Batman - Arkham City (DC Direct) - Series 3 Rated 4.80 stars by Deaditor A spot on figure with decent enough articulation, articulated pauldrons and his sword included. It’s always nice on the rare occasion that these earlier Arkham Game figures get this treatment but obviously it’s not perfect with basic leg movement, but other than that a really well down figure. Personally mine had some bad eye painting so had to redo that to make him not reverse crosseyed and the hair detailing in colour needed some work but besides that I really like this figure and highly reccomend this awesome rendition of Ra’s al Ghul...[See More]
Ezio (Onyx Assassin) (Unhooded) (TRU) Assassin's Creed (Neca) - Brotherhood Rated 4.90 stars by Deaditor Brotherhood is when the figures showed a marked improvement, they had more articulation, more defined less sloppy detail and hidden blades that work really well. This ain’t my favourite of the Brotherhood figures, in fact the whole Brotherhood aesthetic for the assassins especially Ezio’s new uniform didn’t really capture he same strength of the previous basic assassin robe he wore in 2 and the armour of Altair that he wore, though in thankful the game explains why he doesn’t then just wear it in he next game, though it’s a shame I love the look and made and posted a custom of it on this site for that reason.
With these new brotherhood figures they all have a double ball socketed neck meaning a much more natural neck articulation, a diaphragm ab crunch, swivel waist, swivel hinged...[See More]
Ezio (Auditore da Firenze) Assassin's Creed II (Neca) Rated 3.00 stars by Deaditor In some ways a step forward others a step back from the original entry to the AC series Altair. The renaissance attired Ezio certainly has less cumbersome robes in the way but suffers from stiffer legs meaning less possibility than before. The articulation isn’t any worse but hasn’t improved and some of it is hindered due to larger sleeves on the arms for example. He looks the part, though the ACII hidden blades designed for the new line are terribly made being softer plastic that doesn’t work well. One major issue I have is the lack of any accessories. There were so many weapons in the new game and a basic sword would have been nice. Instead we get two flimsy open hands that look alien and because they are open they can’t hokd anything. Now this is due to getting the hidden blade look...[See More]
Altair Assassin's Creed (Neca) Rated 4.00 stars by Deaditor I remember when this game and subsequently this figure came out. I’m not entirely sure how many but I’ve come across 2 variants, whether it’s just updates on the original figure or another company reproducing there are 2 with some differences, so do your research if you’re buying one. The first figure I got was possibly the original model or a cheaper version as his weapons were shinier but thinner in the blade parts. The colour palette was also different this one having a darker dirtier tunic with sandier looking arms, whereas the other version which is either the update or official had white white robes like in the game but purple tinted arms (needless to say I swapped mine) and the hidden blade was shorter and I preferred the shinier one so also swapped those. The newer or official one...[See More]
Riddler Batman - Arkham City (DC Direct) - Series 2 Rated 3.70 stars by Deaditor For such a rare figure he doesn’t live up to much. Some good enough articulation and he has his hat and cane but no glasses for some reason. There’s not tonnes to talk about when it comes to this figure other than its a bit disappointing and I know lots of people’s canes have broken....[See More]
Jervis Tech: The Mad Hatter Batman - Arkham City (DC Direct) - Series 2 Rated 3.00 stars by Deaditor What can be said that hasn’t already been said: the figure is small and yet the same price as other. It has nice details and a removable hat but probably should have come with more accessories or perhaps cams with another figure as he’s such a small figure alone. He’s ok for articulation but can’t really pose much with his hands beyond what you see....[See More]
Hush Batman - Arkham City (DC Direct) - Series 2 Rated 3.50 stars by Deaditor A nicely detailed figure with fair articulation and yet it has one issue that seems odd to exist. So Hush has 2 handguns and if you try to get him to hold them he breaks the hair trigger... so the hands aren’t sculpted to grip his own weapons it seems. This oversight is a bit of an issue so be careful if you’re posing this character with weapons or swap them for different guns. It would be cool to have an alternative head of a scared stitched Bruce Wayne and I’m glad they actually finished this characters arc in the next game, though it’s a bit lack lustre in execution. Overall a decent figure....[See More]
