DC Comics Multiverse Batman: Arkham City Bane Review

DC Comics Multiverse Batman Arkham City Bane 01

Shown first at San Diego Comic-Con 2013, Mattel had announced a new line of DC action figures in 4″ scale based on the video game and feature film franchises. The first wave consists of characters from the Batman: Arkham City video game. There are a total of 18 figures that have been confirmed at this time. This new line of action figures depicts the characters likeness and features multiple points of articulation.

Availability: December 2013; widely released January 2014.

Sculpt:

Bane features an all-new sculpt based on the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game. At first glance the figure does not appear to have that much articulation, as he does not feature the ab crunch or ankle articulation that we’ve become used too. He does however have a great looking sculpt.

His jacket features a couple of pockets at the front and has some folds and details sculpted on. There are additional pockets on the sides of his pants and rear, as well as folds on the pants and boots. There are also some grenades sculpted on the belt. His left hand is sculpted in a fist position and his right hand in an open position.

Paint:

Don’t let the pictures fool you. Unfortunately our camera picked up some brightness on the lighting and made Bane’s colors brighter than the actual product.

His mask is painted black with white around the facial structures. He has a brown jacket, with navy blue at the crouch, and a duller navy blue on the rest of the pants.

Articulation:

Ball jointed head, ball jointed shoulders, hinged biceps, swivel hands, swivel waist, ball jointed hips with hinged thighs, swivel legs, hinged knees.

Accessories:

None.

Overall:

One thing about this new 4″ line is that they are only slightly taller than G.I. Joe and Star Wars figures. So you can display Bane along with the Dreadnoks.

Bane is a great figure with surprisingly good amount of articulation and has a great sculpt. The real complaint is that for a $9.99 price point, which is typical for figures this size (G.I. Joe, Star Wars, Marvel Universe, etc.), he does not have any accessories. Hasbro comes through big time with accessories for their G.I. Joe’s and Star Wars Universe, and sometimes Marvel, but Mattel had skipped on giving us any weapons for Bane to use.

Recommended.
