DC Total Heroes Batman

Here's a look at Batman from Mattel's DC Total Heroes line which was released earlier this year. Released overseas that is. DC figures are currently almost non existent at local retail... 

This Batman is the New 52 version. I've think I've finally got used to the look. I can't say the same for Superman though. The figure has an animated style feel to it. The body is pretty smooth and does not have much muscle definition. There's some nice detail on his costume. You can see lines etched into his suit and boots. The belt was well done. It's got many sculpted compartments as you would expect. It was also well painted in gold. I'm a little bothered by the knee guards. They stand out too much. He has a cloth cape which I like a lot. It's of a good length and well shaped. Now I want a bigger one so he can have the wrapped up look.

He comes with a grappling gun. It's got a decent sculpt to it. He can only hold accessories in his left hand. His right hand is a closed fist.

He also comes with two batarangs. They have a hole on each wing.

This is so that they can be attached to the pegs at the back of his belt. A mass retail Batman figure able to store gear? This is certainly rare.  

Articulation. He's got neck rotation, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, wrist swivel, waist rotation, peg hinge hips, hinge knees and ankle hinge.

Comparison shots. This line of figures is in the 6" scale. He'll stand well enough with DC Universe Classics figures. I'll use him with animated style figures.

This is a pretty cool figure. He looks good, has decent articulation and accessories. Thanks for viewing!

Why can't they make a 4 inch figure like this? I.E. Marvel Universe style. I would be all over it.

Been seeing these around my area finally and it looks like Superman is the peg warmer of the bunch surprisingly.

@Hobgoblin - I too would love proper, good articulation DC 3.75" figures.

@John - I feel something is off about that Superman figure. I think its the shade of colours used and that big red belt.
