As the “Multiverse” name suggests, the figures are based on a range of different DC media, including Bruce Timm’s iconic ‘Animated’ look, the CW’s live-action Arrow, as well as a bunch of recent comic appearances. Unsurprisingly, there are a variety of Batmen and Supermen to choose from, whether you want the iconic modern comic book aesthetic from the 1000th issues of Detective Comics and Action Comics, or something a little weirder in the form of Batman’s Hellbat suit or Superman’s Unchained armor.
Nightwing, Batgirl, and The Batman Who Laughs each come with a piece to assemble a 7″ Rebirth Batmobile, which looks cool even if it’s not to scale. If you’re after a vehicle that is to scale, there’s also the Bat Raptor trike, which is a foot long and seats one figure (sold separately.)
Presumably, we’ll get some figures based on video games and movies, but in the meantime, this is a pretty solid selection. And here’s the good news: these are all slated for a January 2020 release, so expect to see them on store shelves sooner than later. We don’t have suggested retail prices, but based on McFarlane Toys’ other lines, $19.99 per figure seems like a safe bet.
We recently got our first look at McFarlane’s action figures based on Cyberpunk 2077, and between that, the DC Multiverse, and their other licenses (Doom, Mortal Kombat, Harry Potter, Borderlands, My Hero Academia, and Fortnite to name a few) 2020 is shaping up to be a busy year for the little toy company that used to only make Spawn toys.
New York Toy Fair is kicks off on February 22nd, and we’ll get plenty more toy announcements then.
