DC Collectibles – Batman: The Animated Series Gray Ghost, Scarecrow & Two-Face Figures Review

 

DC Collectibles continues their Batman: The Animated Series figures with a new assortment of characters from the classic 1990’s show, and they are offering Scarecrow, Two-Face, Gray Ghost and H.A.R.D.A.C. These figures are expected to ship the end of May 2019 at your local comic shop and online retailer.

During San Diego Comic-Con 2018, DC Collectibles confirmed the continuation of their Batman animated line-up with this wave of figures, the Batcycle, and the Justice League animated figures that were exclusive to the DC Universe Subscription Service. Fans have been demanding more figures such as these for years, and DC Collectibles is giving fans some of these requests. Even better, more figures were shown at New York ToyFair 2019, which shows that they are still trying to get these out to meet demand.

Thank you to DC Collectibles for providing their Batman: The Animated Series Gray Ghost, Scarecrow & Two-Face Figures for review. 

Availability: May 2019

Each figure is packaged on the standard blister card and protected in a plastic bubble and tray, which stores the figure and all of his accessories. There are some changes that has occurred inside the package, including the removable of the figure stands, fewer hand sculpts, and the included brochure no longer mentions which episode the figure is based on. Gray Ghost is #41, H.A.R.D.A.C. is #43, Scarecrow is #44 and Two-Face is #45 in the line.

 

Scarecrow gets his second figure in the line and is based on his appearance in Batman: The Animated Series, which is a new look and character design as seen in the show. Scarecrow is given his iconic red shirt with brown pants, with stitches sculpted and painted in black on the left shoulder and right knee, and he has a light brown belt, light brown shoes and collar around the upper part of his chest. Like all other figures in the wave, Scarecrow is given a great and accurate figure sculpt, and the head sculpt has one of the best sculpts we’ve seen. The head sculpt includes the light beige mask with the mouth sculpted open with one tooth sticking out, and the eyes a glaring look with the eye balls sculpted around the open sockets. His hair has a nice design that could be straw, and he is given a hat that is sculpted on, with the lower portion made of a soft plastic.

 

 

Included with Scarecrow is an interchangeable head sculpt of Jonathan Crane when the mask is removed, and he is given red hair and also a great likeness, his scythe, and two interchangeable hand sculpts. What is interesting is if you look back at our San Diego Comic-Con coverage, we noticed that the hand sculpts were changed a bit and he can’t hold the scythe the way he was shown he could back at the show.

 

His articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged hands, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, double-jointed knees, and swivel-hinged ankles.

 

Gray Ghost appeared in the episode Beware the Gray Ghost, and is sculpted in his iconic light grey suit with a dark grey cape, gloves and hat. The Gray Ghost was a television show that influenced Bruce Wayne, that helped shaped him to become the vigilante Batman later on in life. His outfit is straight forward and is primarily light grey, with black boots and a cape that is made of a soft plastic. The head sculpt is nicely done and he is wearing goggles that are light grey with blue lenses. The hat is sculpted on, and has a black trim around it.

 

 

Included with Gray Ghost is a toy race car that was used as an explosive device in the episode, a VHS movie cover, a pistol, and two sets of interchangeable hand sculpts, with one of the hands holding a pen or pencil he used to write his autograph.

His articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged hands, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, double-jointed knees, and swivel-hinged ankles.

 

Two-Face was one of the very first figures offered in the line, and is given an updated figure sculpt that not only has a better likeness, but also corrects some issues that the first figure had. Two-Face is in his black and white suit, with the jacket, pants and shoes painted white on the right and black on the left. The undershirt and tie are opposite white and black as seen in the series. His head sculpt has a great likeness, with the right side left unscarred, and the left burned with the acid and painted in a light blue, with a large yellow eye, oversized red lips and yellow teeth. His hands are in similar shape, with the right side normal, and the left side given the light blue to indicate the acid burn.

 

 

Included with Two-Face are accessories he used in the show, including his iconic coin to help him decide, a rifle, dynamite, and a total of five interchangeable hand sculpts (two normal and three acid burned).

 

His articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged hands, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, double-jointed knees, and swivel-hinged ankles.

Overall, fans of Batman: The Animated Series and collectors of this line will surely want to pick up this wave when it comes out next month. All figures feature beautiful figure sculpts with great likenesses and attention to detail.
