Toymaker McFarlane Toys unveiled its run of figures inspired by Batman: The Animated Series spin-off comic, Batman: The Adventures Continue.
The figure roster is interesting, to say the least. It consists of Batman, Catwoman, and The Batman Who Laughs- Despite the fact that BWL never appeared on the TV show.
Furthermore, the character descriptions are based on The Adventure Continues series, when the cartoon was revived and had revamped designs. While Batman is from the updated design, Catwoman’s look is based on the original cartoon run. However, with such great-looking toys, it’s easy to forgive this.

Catwoman comes with multiple sets of hands, as well as her cat o’ nine tales whip. You can insert the bullwhip into her hands, making it look as if she is grasping it. Furthermore, she has an alternate unmasked head with her Selina Kyle face.

Finally, there’s the Batman Who Laughs. He has yet to appear in the DC animated universe or even in the Adventures Continue comic spin-off series. However, due to his tremendous popularity, he’s now been immortalized in the Animated Series style. The stripped-down look actually makes BWL really cool. He comes with alternate hands, a mace, and a ball and chain with a bat-style knife.

All of these figures are made in collaboration between McFarlane Toys and DC Comics’ adult collectible line DC Direct. There is no firm release date for them yet other than sometime in 2022.
