DC Collectibles The New Batman Adventures Two-Face Figure Review

DC Collectibles The New Batman Adventures Two-Face Figure 01

DC Collectibles first wave of Batman: The Animated Series action figures includes Batman, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, and Two-Face. Batman, Mr. Freeze, and Two-Face falls under The New Batman Adventures. These figures already made a strong impression on fans since they were announced earlier this year and there is still a lot of love for Bruce Timm’s Batman: The Animated Series from the 1990’s.

There are numerous reports coming in that Catwoman and Batman have breakage issues on Catwoman’s elbows and Batman’s wrists and ankles. There are even reports of loose and wobbly joints on Batman’s ankles if they aren’t already broken. We reported this on Friday, November 28th (Black Friday) and sent the information to DC Collectibles in hopes they will rectify the situation and improve quality control going forward. Our inspection of Two-Face reveals that he too might have breakage issues on his wrists and ankles, so be sure to be extra careful with him.

Availability: December 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

Two-Face features an all-new sculpt that is sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios and is based on the episode “Sins Of The Father.” He is sculpted in his half white, half black business suit, and half Harvey Dent human face, half acid burned blue face as his head sculpt. He includes a set of 3 white hands for the white half of the suit, and a set of 3 blue hands for the black half of the suit.

His leg articulation has some quality control and breakage issues at the hips. It turns out that the paint at the white side of the leg has dried around the peg preventing the knee from moving and is stuck in the standing up straight pose. The black side of the leg is better but also has a lot of difficulty moving. The other part of the quality control issue is that the back part of the leg is not plugged into the hip joint correctly and causes both legs to be uneven lengths. Because of this, getting him to stand up without falling over can be something of a challenge. The figure stand helps, but the clip does not wrap around his waist completely and it doesn’t give him enough support to hold him up.

Articulation:

Ball-Jointed head, ball-jointed shoulders, ball-jointed hinge elbows, swivel wrists, swivel waist, hinged-swivel hips, hinged knees, swivel boots, swivel ankles.

Accessories:

Figure base and stand, gas mask, tommy gun, pistol, red and blue canisters, a bag (that opens), a stopwatch, and 2 sets of 3 additional hands (3x white, 3x blue).

Overall:

Two-face is a great figure, but we feel that there are too many mistakes such as hip joint articulation and legs being uneven to make this an excellent figure. DC Collectibles needs to make improvements on wave 2 as errors like this cannot continue for the longevity of the line.

One of the additions we love about this figure is that DC Collectibles and Gentle Giant Studios included the coin and sculpted it to an open white hand. We are very grateful that it was included.

Highly Recommended.
