I collect DCUC but only the Batman characters. I want to get some DC Direct figures to go with my Batman display. So far I only have Hush from the DC Direct Hush line. He fits in perfect. I also want to get Alfred and Gordon from that line as well as Ra's from the Trinity line and Black Mask from the Secret Files line? What are the best Huntress and Poison Ivy figures to use with DCUC? Any other Batman heroes or villains that could go well with my display from DC Direct? I hear they are making a Scarface figure for the Arkham video game so hopefully he'll fit in with my DCUC Bat villains.

I use the Hush series Huntress and Poison Ivy figures for my displays, for now.

Image

Huntress fits in very well, if you ask me. The height is almost perfect, considering the general size of DCUC female figures. Naturally, she lacks a great deal of articulation, and almost requires that her left leg be bent backward to stand, but she still looks quite nice.

Image

Poison Ivy's head is a bit large, but her size is fairly similar to the female DCUC figures. Though, I can't usually get her to stand on her own (and if I do, she always manages to find a way to fall over, taking the rest of the shelf with her :P ).

I don't have any suggestions for other figures but I have a Gordon that I display with my DCUC and he looks great.

One thought. I only like to buy one version of each character, due to cost. You might want to pop over to a site that shows you all of your options, like the DC Direct section of the http://www.DcComics.com website to view all of their figures. Or this fan archive which is very good:

The Mad Hatter, from Long Halloween. He looks awesome, and comes with a teacup! A widdle iddy biddy teacup!

I also use the Oracle from the Birds of Prey set, and a couple of Ninja Man-Bats from Batman and Son. As well as the aforementioned Ra's al Ghul (Trinity), Huntress/Hush/Alfred (Hush), and Black Mask (Secret Files).

As for Poison Ivy, I'm a little more old school, so I've had my eye on this one from the Secret Files line as opposed to the one from Hush:

I really like that Poison Ivy figure too, Sean. I'll be getting her instead of the Hush one. Thanks! :D

How tall is that Poison Ivy?

I mix some of the DC Direct figures for my bat display as well. Right now I use the shirtless Ras al Ghul from the Batman Hush line, Black Mask and Bane from the Knightfall line. I have a DCSH Killer Croc but also have the DC Direct one and Im starting to like that one as well.
