McFarlane Toys have been pushing on with the DC license since they took over earlier this year. Round 1 gave us a taste of everything – modern comics, animated and TV. Later in the year we got two Wonder Woman pieces from the upcoming WW84. Today we are looking at their latest offering – figures based on the DC Comics Batman: White Knight mini-series. This is a DC Black Label story out of the main continuity, which has the Joker being “cured” and becoming Gotham’s savior, while Batman becomes it’s villain. The art has it’s own unique style, and these figures are very faithful to that look. To the casual fan who just wants a standard “works for everything” Batman – this isn’t it, on purpose. If you know the source material – it is dead on. Read on to check out our pics of the figures and some additional thoughts, courtesy of McFarlane Toys!
