DC Collectibles shipped out The Riddler, Batman Version 2, and Batgirl 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 Riddler is based on the episode “Riddler’s Reform,” which had originally aired on September 24, 1994 and includes episode specific accessories, including shelves of products from Wacko Toys.
Availability: October 2015
The Riddler features a brand new sculpt with a green suit, beige pants, purple gloves, green shows, a question mark on the light grey tie, a black undershirt, a purple mask, and a green hat with light grey stripe.
His back is sculpted inward just above the buttocks, which causes his upper back to look bigger and bulkier than it probably is. The rest of the sculpt looks good and proportional, with the exception of his feet looking a bit too small. His cane accessory can only be held in one hand, and not two as seen in the show, and he cannot hold it from the top of the ball.
The Riddler’s face sculpt is shown with a grin on his left side, which is probably from the scene where he thought he killed Batman in the episode (spoiler – he didn’t, but came very close).
ball-jointed head, ball-jointed shoulders, hinged-swivel elbows, swivel and removable wrists, hinged-swivel hips, hinged knees, and swivel ankles.
Three interchangeable hands, a cane, Wacko Toys display stand, and a figure stand with base.
The Riddler is an excellent figure with a great sculpt and likeness to the source material.
