DC Collectibles: Batman: The Animated Series Action Figures – A First Look at Two-Face and Mr. Freeze
April 7, 2014

Last week DC Collectibles gave fans their first look at the other two figures that will be in their first wave of their 6″ Batman: The Animated Series line.   In this new article they give a lot more details on the figure including points of articulation, some possible accessories and showing the digital sculpts.

 

Figures based on the highly influential and almost universally beloved Batman: The Animated Series. Fans were excited, and so were we. In fact, after we heard the news, we held an entire weeklong event here on DCComics.com to celebrate the series.

As part of that event, we gave you an early look at the first two designs: Batman (from 1997’s The New Batman Adventures) and Catwoman (based off of the original 1992 design). Well, we’re now in the midst of April—Batman Month—which would make it the perfect time to share a little bit more and give you a first look at the second two action figures in the line.

To start, we should mention that it’s still relatively early in the process, so what you’re seeing below are the sculpts. The color will come later. (Not that there’s anything wrong with black and white Batman. In fact, we have an entire line devoted to that as well!)


The New Batman Adventures: Two-Face Action Figure

Like our earlier Batman figure, Two-Face is based off of the 1997 design. He’ll feature multiple accessories, all of which were seen in the episode “Sins of the Father.” He features 17 points of articulation.

You’re going to want this one, so we don’t suggest deciding whether to buy this action figure or not with a coin flip. At least, not without making “your own luck.”
The New Batman Adventures: Mr. Freeze Action Figure

Also based off of the 1997 redesign, Mr. Freeze will feature two “cool” accessories (yeah, yeah, we went there: his freeze gun and his robot spider legs from the episode “Cold Comfort.” He also features a whopping 26 points of articulation.
With all of the Batman: The Animated Series action figures, the goal is to give them as much articulation as possible without jeopardizing the art style’s aesthetics. The DC Collectibles team is continuing to use the original character design sheets used by the animators, to ensure these figures are as accurate as possible. All of the figures are in the 1/12th or 6-inch scale and will be accurately scaled in relation to Batman.

Look for Two-Face and Mr. Freeze in your favorite comic and specialty store this November. Or shop for them online on Amazon or at www.shopdccollectibles.com. As for which figures we’ll be putting out next year, well, there’s only one thing we can say…

Stay tuned, bat-fans, stay tuned…

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    I am so excited for these toys! I have the entire B:TAS, S:TAS, BB, and JL/JLU figures but will gladly re-buy them all in this scale!!!!! Bring ‘em on DC!

  • Eric Nixon says:

    I’ll buy these because I have an illness that makes me collect these. But the fact they they’re mixing the original designs and the re-designs bothers me to no end.

  • BryanL says:

    Oh, yeah. I’m on the hook for these, no question.

  • stewbacca says:

    Way to much articulation on these figures– its going to kill the fluid look of the animation style– by putting it full of pegs and cut lines– becoming more disappointed about the direction..
