New year, new wave of DC toys. McFarlane Toys has its latest series of figures arriving now, featuring Red Sun Superman, Robin, and more.
Hard to believe, but the initial wave of McFarlane’s DC Comics action figures was landing in stores about a year ago. Time flies when you’re… doing nothing. I guess.
In any event, the line is in full swing at this point, and has seen some excellent figures arrive in the last 12 or so months. Yes, it’s been incredibly Bat-heavy, but that is DC’s number one character, so I think that’s understandable. Right new wave, the first for 2021, includes more of Dark Knight-related stuff, but also a fan favorite with Red Sun Superman.
An alternate-Earth version of the Man of Steel, this Superman was adopted into the Soviet Union. The servant of the USSR comes complete with alt-hands and one of McFarlane’s flight stands, plus the standard trading card.
Unfortunately for those looking for DC heroes and villains that aren’t connected to Gotham City, the rest of the wave is decidedly not that. Included is DC Metal’s The Drowned, as well as the Damien Wayne version of Robin, and Batman himself, decked out in his Death Metal gear.
There’s also a vehicle, the second in the line, with the Bat-cycle from Death Metal. So you can grab one of those, and a new Batman, and make yourself a pretty neat little display.
As with all of the McFarlane DC stuff, the figures and the bike are all in the 7″ scale, and each one comes with a trading card. All of the figures features 22 points of articulation, and the bike has movable wheels and handlebars.
Each figure will run you $19.99 USD, with the Death Metal Batcycle being priced in just a bit more at $24.99 USD.
