McFarlane Toys has just announced their new Batman & Robin Figure Set, featuring Batman, Robin, Bargirl, Poison Ivy and a build it yourself Mr. Freeze.

We published a preview article about these releases last month, but McFarlane has finally released some amazing images.

Based on the 1997 hit movie Batman & Robin, all five figures in the collection have been made to look like the stars playing the characters. George Clooney as Batman, Chris O’Donnell as Robin, Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.

Batman and Robin encounter Mr. Freeze while he’s robbing the museum of their largest diamond. After the villain escapes by freezing the vigilantes, they discover that his real name is Dr. Victor Fries, a scientist searching to cure his wife.

At the same time, at Wayne Enterprises Bolivia, Dr. Pamela Isley is pushed into a shelf of toxins after discovering that her boss has turned her experiment into the super soldier drug, Venom. Mutating and becoming Poison Ivy, she gets her revenge on the doctor and escapes to Gotham City with Bane.

Gotham Turns into a battleground after Ivy convinces Freeze that Batman has killed his wife. This leads the Dark Knight, Robin and Batgirl, (who, in this reality) is Alfred’s niece Barbra Wilson, of course to save the day, They throw Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy into Arkham Asylum where they share a cell. This wouldn’t be so bad if Freeze didn’t know the truth about Ivy being the one who really attempted to kill his wife.

By collecting Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Poison Ivy, you also collect the pieces to create Mr. Freeze to complete the set. The Batman & Robin Figure Set can be ordered from McFarlane Toys, Amazon, Target, Entertainment Earth, and Big Bad Toy Store.
