McFarlane Toys have released four new figures based on the Dark Knight trilogy. The figures include 1 of 4 pieces that, when combined with the rest of The Dark Knight Trilogy Build-a line, will assemble Bane.
As a child, Bruce Wayne watched as his parents were brutally killed in Gotham City’s Crime Alley. Traumatized by their deaths, he devoted his life to becoming the world’s greatest weapon against crime, Batman! He’s a master detective and an expert martial artist, but his greatest weapon is his mind. Batman has a plan for every occasion, as well as high-tech weapons, gadgets, and vehicles to assist him in his relentless pursuit of justice!
The Batman figure comes with Bane Build-A -Figure legs and a base.
No name strikes terror into the hearts of Gotham’s citizens quite like the Joker. In a city overrun with larger-than-life criminals, the always-laughing villain stands alone.
A complete psychopath with no moral compass whatsoever the Joker, whose real name and identity remain completely unknown, is characterized by his chalk-white skin, green hair, and a permanent rictus grin stretched across his face. However, there isn’t a single thing funny about this particular clown, who only finds humor in the suffering of others.
The Joker figure comes with Build-A-Figure Bane hands, head, and base.
A prominent and well-educated District Attorney, Harvey Dent fought valiantly to uphold the law and make the city a better place. In any other city, it would have worked. Not in Gotham— a place where greed and corruption stretch from the depths of Crime Alley to the shimmering heights of the mayor’s office.
Dent’s spiral into Gotham’s madness came swiftly after a criminal threw acid into his face, leaving half of it horribly scarred. Seeking refuge in the underbelly of Gotham, the name Harvey Dent and all the good it stood for was lost… and Two-Face rose from the darkness.
The Two-Face figure comes with a Build-A-Figure Bane torso and base.
As a young child, Jonathan Crane was subjected to sick and twisted experiments on fear conducted by his own father. Emotionally scarred and mentally unstable from the ordeal, Crane spent his childhood living in fear until he made an important realization— if he could control fear, it would never again control him.
Over time, this interest in fear becomes an obsession. After graduating from college with a doctorate in psychology and a specialty in phobias, Jonathan began experimenting on others, subjecting them to a hallucinogenic fear toxin he developed that brought out their worst nightmares. Although Batman has developed a number of remedies to counteract these toxins, Crane is constantly improving upon his formula, creating more potent and deadlier versions
Each figure is designed with Ultra Articulation with up to 22 moving parts, for a full range of posing and play. Each figure also comes with an included collectible art card with character art on the front, and a character biography on the back.
The figures are now available to order from the McFarlane Toy store and can be purchased separately or as a bundle.
