DC Collectibles The New Batman Adventures (TNBA) Two-Face

"What are you staring at!?!"

The first thing that struck me when I had this figure in hand was what tiny feet he had. Fortunately he's able to at least stand straight on his own. Getting him into other poses required some patience. The figure looks good. They really nailed his look with that head sculpt. His disfigured half especially is spot on and it has good paint apps too. The torso portion of his suit was made of a rubbery material. The paint apps are decent enough. A minor gripe is that the white on his pants is thick and rough. There's some paint bubbles on my figure and you can see excess paint in the joints of his leg.

Two-Face needs to come with his double-headed coin and he has one sculpted on his open hand. You can't really call it a coin. With the paint seeped onto his hand it looks like a piece of clay or something. You can just barely make out the faint outline of a head on the coin. I would have preferred if the coin were a separate accessory and he had a "coin flicking" hand.

The accessories he comes with are based on a specific episode. In this case they are based on the episode "Sins of the Father", which was the Tim Drake Robin origin episode. There's a bag, one red and one blue canister, a gas mask, a pocket watch, a pistol, a Tommy Gun, interchangeable hands and a base and a stand. The bag can be opened and the canisters can be placed inside, just like in the episode. The claw which is used to hold the figure now has two pegs with an adjustable horizontal piece. Batman's stand had only claw. This is good as it allows you to pose the figure further away from the vertical stand.   

To use the gas mask you just slide it on his face. It fits nicely and it stays on securely. The handle of the pistol and Tommy Gun are a little too big but you can still squeeze them in either of his gun holding hands.

Articulation. He's got a a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, wrist swivel, waist rotation, peg hinge hips, knee hinge and ankle swivel. With his tiny feet he's not going to be able to pull off many poses. The joints are pretty stiff so do handle with care when trying to move them. It is recommended you use a hair dryer on him before trying to move the joints.

This is another great TNBA figure. Thanks for viewing!
