DC Multiverse: Frostbite Batman - Toying Around Reviews

This week we are looking at something a little different from McFarlane Toys. We have the new Frostbite Edition from the DC Multiverse for this review. This new line will be taking figures and doing them in a more translucent plastic to make them look as if the figure was made out of ice. If this is your first time seeing a figure from McFarlane Toys and you are not sure what it is well, McFarlane Toys, a subsidiary of Todd McFarlane Productions, is a company founded by comics creator Todd McFarlane that makes highly detailed model figurines of characters from movies, comics, popular music, video games, and various sporting genres.

 

PACKAGING:

Before we open this up, let's check out the packaging.


Batman comes in a rectangle-style box that is a little translucent. The front of the box has the Gold Label sticker in the upper left. The middle of the box has the DC logo as well as the Batman logo. Below that we have the name of the figure. The very bottom of the box has the McFarlane Toys logo as well as a sticker from GameStop, letting us know that this is a GameStop exclusive. The side of the box has the DC and Batman logos as well as the figure's name. Turning the box to the back we get a picture of Batman on a snowy Gotham rooftop. Turning the box around one more time to the other side we get nothing but a QR code.

 

INSIDE OF THE BOX:

Let's take a look at how the figure comes packed inside.


Taking the plastic prison out of the box we can see Batman and everything he comes with.

 

OUTSIDE OF THE BOX:

Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.


Now that we have Batman out of the box we can see that this is the same DC Rebith figure that McFarlane released last year, now done in translucent plastic with a white overspray to make him look a little snowy.

 

ACCESSORIES:

Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.


Batman includes a Frostbite grapnel launcher, Batarang, a collector art card, a card stand, and a bat symbol stand base

 

ARTICULATION:

How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!


BATMAN'S ARTICULATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:


DUMBBELL JOINTED NECK - allows you to turn the head 360 degrees as well as make the head look up and down a little bit.

BALL-HINGED SHOULDERS - These give the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm.

UPPER BICEP SWIVEL - This cut lets you turn the whole arm below the cut 360 degrees.

DOUBLE-JOINTED ELBOWS - This allows you to bend the arm over 90 degrees.

BALL SWIVEL HINGE WRISTS - With this, you can turn his wrists in a full 360-degree circle while also bending them up and down.

DIAPHRAGM SWIVEL - This lets you turn the figure around 360 degrees at the diaphragm.

BALL JOINTED WAIST - This lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist.

HINGE JOINTED LEGS - With this it allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion.

DOUBLE-JOINTED KNEES - The joint allows you to bend the leg itself back to the butt of the figure.

BALL JOINTED ANKLES - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back and also to the left and right.

TOE JOINT - This allows you to bend the toes up so you can pose the figure a little better when making him look like he is running or walking.

 

SIZE COMPARISON:

How does the size of this figure compare to others?


Batman stands right around the 7-inch mark. I don't have the normal Rebirth Batman so here he is standing next to Knightfall Batman and Detective Comics 1000 Batman.

 

RATING:

What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?


PAINT JOB 5/5 - The paint, while it is only white, makes this guy look like he is made out of ice.

FIGURE SCULPT 5/5 - This Batman figure looks good, he looks like Batman from the Rebirth era of DC comics.

POSING 4.5/5 - You can get him in just about any pose you want

ACCESSORIES: 3/5 - Some extra hands would have been good.

DURABILITY 5/5 - The plastic is strong, no fear of it breaking.

OVERALL SCORE 4.5/5 - This is a cool-looking figure, is it for everyone? No, But it is definitely something neat to add to your collection.


RETAIL COST: $29.99
