Today we will be taking a look at the New DC Comics Multiverse Three Jokers Batman, This is how Batman looked in the DC Comics Dark Lable Storyline. Thirty years after Batman: The Killing Joke changed comics forever, Batman: Three Jokers reexamines the myth of who, or what is the Joker and what is at the heart of his ongoing battle with Batman. New York Times bestselling writer Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok, the team that waged the “Darkseid War” in the pages of Justice League, reunite to tell the ultimate story of Batman and The Joker! In this highly anticipated epic, learn why there are three Jokers, and what that means for the decades-long battle between the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. In this powerful, emotional story, Batman, Batgirl, and Red Hood-all past victims of The Joker-work together to solve a mystery, unlike anything they’ve ever faced before! McFarlane Toys, a subsidiary of Todd McFarlane Productions, is a company founded by comics creator Todd McFarlane which 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 take a look at the packaging.
On the front of the box, we have a nice big window that lets us see the figure and everything he comes with. The top of the box lets us know that the figure has 22 points of articulation. The bottom of the box has the DC Multiverse logo as well as Batman’s name. Turning the box to the side we have the name of the figure, and where the inspiration for the figure came from. The back of the box is a little different than most, we do not get a picture of the figure, but rather the artwork from where the inspiration came. The same goes for the rest of the figures in the wave, we get the artwork, no figure pictures. Turning the box around one more time we get a small window that lets us see the figure.
OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Taking Batman out of the box we get to see all the details that McFarlane put into this figure. The details on the cowl are really well done and just add that much more to the figure. I did have an issue with my Batman figure. His left arm snapped at the bicep swivel. I was able to glue it back on and haven’t had any problems with it, but it does seem like the last few waves of DC Multiverse figures have been having a ton of QC issues.
ACCESSORIES: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.
Batman comes with his Bat-Grapple, a collectors trading card, and the figure stand
ARTICULATION: How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!
BATMAN’S ARTICULATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING: BALL-JOINTED NECK - allows you to turn the head 360 degrees.
BUTTERFLY HING - This allows you to move the shoulder area front and back to get a better range of motion.
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.
SWIVEL BALL HINGE WRISTS - It allows you to 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.
BALL 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 7 inches tall. Here is Batman with the new 2022 Batman movie figure, next, here is Batman standing next to Rebirth Superman.
RATING: What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?
PAINT JOB 4.5/5 - The figure does have paint in all the right spots, however, right out of the box mine had some QC issues with the paint. It was scrapped off in a few sports and the belt was done a little sloppy.
FIGURE SCULPT 5/5 - The sculpt and look of this Batman figure is perfect. As of right now, this is MY Batman for doing any displays.
POSING 5/5 - You can get batman in just about any pose or move that you would want to get him into.
ACCESSORIES: 3/5 - All he comes with is the grapple, They could throw a few other things into the box since he isn’t part of a collect-to-build wave.
DURABILITY 3/5 - While the plastic for the body is sound, it’s the joints that are the issue. The arms are breaking with this batman and the Year two Batman (they use the same mold) all over the place.
OVERALL SCORE 4.1/5 - Man if the figure didn’t break at the arm he’d be perfect.
RETAIL COST: $19.99 I PICKED MINE UP AT TARGET.
TIME FOR SOME TOYING AROUND!!
