Today we are taking a look at the two latest Batman V Superman figures from Mafex – Armored Batman and Wonder Woman. These join the first releases of Batman and Superman. These figures join the growing Mafex line of of DC movie figures, their Dark Knight offerings were some of the best. Each of these are structurally better than the earlier BVS releases. Let’s take a look at both with some additional thoughts after the break, over 80 pics courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
Mafex Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Armored Batman and Wonder Woman
This round was considerably better than the first set of regular Batman and Superman from Mafex. The construction is tighter, less floppy. Sculpt and paint is great everywhere on the bodies. Wonder Woman’s face sculpt is a bit off, a tad too full in the face. Paint application on Wonder Woman’s face is basic, with overly full lips and eye work that gets lost. Batman’s head fares better, but as with the first 2, the skin tone is way on the orange side like they’ve been tanning in Cabo for a month. Overall Armored Batman is pretty solid, holds it’s own with the other 2 on the market, but as with all of them, the cape material choice is questionable. None of the 3 got it quite right.
There are more BVS items coming – possibly from DC Collectibles DC Films line, Mezco will have a WW in One:12 scale. S.H. Figuarts is getting into DC Films, but no major plans for BVS yet. And we have the Wonder Woman movie dropping this year so we’ll probably get a similar figure from all those companies again there. Armored Batman – he’s out in 3 forms now, and all have pros and cons. I suggest taking a look at each and picking your poison. :).
