DC Collectibles Batman: The Animated Series (BTAS) Batman

The figure I'm sure lots of Batman: The Animated Series (BTAS) fans have been waiting for, Batman himself as he first appeared in the series.

They did a great job with this figure. Just by looking at it and the nostalgia and memories start to kick in. This is one of my favourite looks of Batman. I love the blue colour of the inner cape. It's visually striking. He's got a great head sculpt. I love the narrowed eyes. You don't want want to mess with him. The body is good and shows off his strong physique. It follows the animated style to a tee with the shortish torso and long looking legs. The logo and belt were sculpted. The cape was well done. It has the pointed ends at the shoulders like it should. The paint is okay. One thing though is that there's paint flaking off when you handle him, especially at his hands. I also had paint coming out from the joints as I was posing him.

Accessories. He comes with two extra pairs of interchangeable hands (gripping hands and Batarang holding hands), a right hand with his grapple gun moulded on, a grapple gun, a Batarang, a stand and base. This is less than what the TNBA Batman came with. I would have liked at least an extra cape where it drapes over the front of his body.

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, waist rotation, peg hinge hips, knee hinge and ankle hinge and pivot. I would have like if he had some swivel in the legs.

Comparison shots. BTAS Bats stands slightly taller than TNBA Bats.

He's a little lacking compared to the TNBA version but it's still a great figure. Thanks for viewing!

Was VERY much looking forward to this one! Looks like he turned out well enough for my tastes (save for maybe the paint flaking).
