#73: DC Universe Classics All-Stars - Batman

A year after his comic debut, Mattle brings us Batman in his New 52 costume. Actually, they're not too far behind DC Direct (er, Collectibles) so I'm not really complaining. Now that DCUC proper is done with as a retail presence, we've now got DCUC All-Stars and Batman and Superman themed lines coming. I haven't seen them in stores yet, but I did order this online. So, no accessories no build a figure parts (yeah, yeah, collect and connect, I know), no buttons. Thanks to all the weird armor lines, there are actually a good amount of non-reused pieces for this figure. I think even the cape is new. The articulation is pretty standard for a DCUC figure. The head has a larger range of motion than I'm used to, but it's also kind of loose. Not sure if that's a feature or a flaw. Otherwise, everything seems in order. Except that the belt is on a little crooked... The head seems a bit small, but it is a nice sculpt. I think Batman is one of the characters whose New 52 re-design came out not looking horrible, and it does make for a cool figure.

"I'm Batman." "I'm Batma- Why are you so short?"
