The Toyark is continuing it’s shoots for the DC Collectibles Designer Series today with the Greg Capullo Batman. This is our first alternate take on the New 52 design originating with Jim Lee. Capullo’s vision gives Batman a beefier look, an almost Frank Miller Dark Knight Returns look while still staying true to the new form. A nice visual fade into the recently unveiled Batman from Batman/Superman. Check out over 35 shots and our thoughts after the break!
DC Collectibles Designer Series Greg Capullo Batman
More muscular than the New 52 figure
Above average articulation for DCC
Awesome head sculpt
Angular shoulders and unique face makes merging into shelves more difficult
Great figure. The articulation is welcome. Not full on like other lines, but well above the early New 52 figures. It is pretty close to how I would like it for posing and shelf fitting. The unique look of the mouth area, and obvious shoulder angles make it stand out, which is the point of this designer series. However, if you are trying to replace a Batman, or merge into a shelf, he may not work with other figures depending on how picky you are. The batarangs are nice, but it’s very difficult to get all 3 to stay put between his fingers. This is the level of figure I want standard from DCC, weight, plastic quality, articulation, design. Hopefully they continue it with additional lines, not just the Designer Series.
Check out over 35 shots below, and stay tuned for Nightwing and The Riddler!
