First impressions of McFarlane Toys’ DC Multiverse figures

There’s been a lot of us crazy DC collectors anxiously awaiting the reveal of McFarlane Toys’ DC Multiverse figures. After Mattel ended their run in the early fall, we’ve had to wait longer than we would have liked. Today the wait was over and the result was…interesting.

We got two reveals from the Animated Line with Superman and Batman. These two look good although I’m not sure if it’s such a drastic improvement over the DC Collectibles line, which obviously has a massive head start over McFarlane’s efforts.

There was one reveal from the TV/movie wing with a Green Arrow figures from Arrow. This figure looked decent enough but this was maybe the one figure that really would have benefitted from an alternate head sculpt with an unmasked Oliver Queen head.

Next up was the comic book influenced figures. I’m gonna work backwards on this one. First up was the two armored alternate versions of Superman and Batman. Both of these figures look really good although I don’t really care about armored versions.

From there we get standard comic versions of Batman, Harley Quinn and Superman.

Something seems off with Batman’s head sculpt. I’m interested in seeing how his articulation flows particularly with the draping cape. At least with Batman we know there will be plenty of figures to come over the years.

Harley Quinn Classic

But the most impressive figure is easily Superman. That’s important because too many lines fail to get the iconic version of Superman and if you can’t get him right it never really bodes well. This is a great sign going forward and while there might be some hiccups, a terrific Superman gives a fledgling line a lot of leeway to improve.
