DC Collectibles shipped out The Penguin and Poison Ivy figures this week from their Batman: The Animated Series toyline based on the 1990’s Bruce Timm series. These figures are now available at your local comic shop and online retailer, and make sure you are supporting this line as we want DC Collectibles to expand to Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Batman Beyond. This style of action figures lives on only if people are buying.
The Penguin is based on the episode “The Strangest Secret Of Bruce Wayne,” which had originally aired on October 29, 1992.
Availability: September 2015
The Penguin features a brand new sculpt and is chubby and short as shown in the animated series. The sculpt features a non-removable top hat, chubby facial sculpt with a pointy nose, long black hair, and three sets of interchangeable hands. He is sculpted in his black and grey tuxedo with grey pants, black bow tie, yellow vest, light blue undershirt, and black shoes.
His articulation is limited as his knees a very short, but he does have a ball-jointed head, ball-jointed shoulders, hinged-swivel elbows, swivel and removable wrists, hinged knees, and roller ankles that barely move due to the pants blocking most of the movement.
Three interchangeable hands, umbrella, deployed umbrella (also used as a gun), spoon, cup, figure stand with base.
The Penguin is an excellent figure with a great sculpt and likeness to the source material. The only thing we would have preferred is a removable top hat, as it’s shown in the series.
