Hey DC Fans! Our buddies over at TheFwoosh were kind enough to pass on some great loose shots of the entire second wave of Batman Legacy figures!
As we know, Wave 2 consists of:
Batman w/ Batmite (Earth-2)
Catman is the only completely new figure in the series. He features the standard male legs, the belt trunks and the larger upper body and arms in his make-up. The Four Horsemen paid some real attention to detail with this figure, even going so far as to giving him the bulkier chest, he was pretty bulked up in those Gail Simone Secret Six comics. He comes with some new pieces, including a new sculpted belt, pointy shoes and cape straps. The head sculpt is awesome and I love the addition of the 5-o’clock shadow. The figure features excellent paint work, including some superb air brushing and nice crisp lines and overall chest symbol. He also comes with some neat looking claws that fit pretty well, although not perfectly flush, on his knuckles. I must agree with The Fwoosh when they say this figure, along with Owlman, easily belong on this year’s Top 10, and overall, best pair of DCUC figures to date!
Batman (Earth-2) is the second figure in the line. He utilizes parts from past Batman figures, but sports a new, smiling head sculpt and will perfectly fit alongside your JSA pieces. It’s pretty obvious that the popular Batman: The Brave and the Bold show was a big reason we finally got both this piece and the Golden Age Joker and I think that’s great! Batman also features the first Batman Legacy pack-in companion – Batmite. He looks good and I love his cowl with the one askewed ear! No other accessories are included, but this is one awesome 2-pack I am sure DC and BTBATB fans will snatch off the pegs quickly!
A repainted Batgirl (Barbara Gordan) rounds things out in the second Batman Legacy Wave. She looks great in her new, glossy black costume and although I really wasn’t crazy about the figure when it was first revealed, I have changed my mind and will most deffinetly be picking her up. Yeah, she’s a straight up reapint with no accessories, short of a display stand, but it’s Babs Gordan and this new cosutme really works on her.
There you have it, a line that outdoes the first in every way if you ask me! Catman is amazing and the K-Mart exclusive Earth-2 Batman / Batmite combo pack have sealed the deal for me, and throwing in a newly repainted Batgirl is just a nice bonus! All 3 of these pieces are highly recommended and I hope we will see more Legacy DCUC figures in the near future!
Enjoy the attached shots, thanks to TheFwoosh!
