Raise the Roof: Medicom’s Doing ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Figures


If you're a fan of Medicom's MAFEX line, you know it's been doing some good things with the DC Cinematic Universe license. Well, at least as far as Batman is concerned. We've gotten a few different Christian Bale Batman figures, as well as a handful of Heath Ledger Jokers and a lone Anne Hathaway Catwoman to round out the group. The DC portion of MAFEX line will continue in 2016 with the just-announced Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice series, which brings the new, dour incarnation of the Dark Knight to life alongside his Krytponian nemesis, Party Time Superman.

Seriously, have you seen the Man of Steel Superman this excited before? He can barely contain the joy of becoming a highly-articulated import figure. More importantly, this is exactly the kind of thing you expect a farmboy with such a wholesome attitude (and who probably calls soda "pop") to do in a situation where he's supposed to be happy. You could easily argue that Superman is meant to be showing off his strength in that picture, but the only thing he's raising above his head is the roof.

Medicom’s Bank Robbery Joker Lets You Relive Those First Few Minutes of The Dark Knight Again

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Seven years ago, Christopher Nolan tapped Heath Ledger to play arguably the most iconic comic book villain in his sequel to Batman Begins. As the Joker in The Dark Knight, Ledger made a lasting impression on the fanbase that's often remembered as one of, if not the, most memorable performance in a comic book film. At least part of that reverence comes from the fact that it was Ledger's final film role, but it's also due to the fact that his Joker was so different, strange and captivating.

Since that film's release, Joker action figures have constantly been in the rotation from various companies, including Hot Toys, NECA, and recently, Medicom. The Japanese manufacturer has been slowly releasing figures based on the final two films in the past year or so, including a Batman, Catwoman and a purple-suited Joker. Next, Medicom's MAFEX line will introduce the Joker from his brief time as a bank robber in the earliest moments of The Dark Knight.

Medicom Reveals Its ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Deluxe Edition MAFEX Action Figure

Medicom MAFEX The Amazing Spider-Man 2

When Medicom opened up preorders for its The Amazing Spider-Man 2 MAFEX action figure earlier this year, a teaser image depicted a pretty straightforward addition to the 6.3" tall toy line. Sure, it was cool to see a new take on the film's updated Spidey suit, but otherwise it was pretty similar to the first ASM figure, right? Well, not completely. While the basic figure is similar in some regards, there's going to be a deluxe edition of the Spider-Man figure that has accessories enow to make it look like he may or may not enjoy seductive convos on his smartphone. Oh, and a friggin' skateboard!

Sofubi Superman, Bizarro And Swamp Thing Figures Coming From Medicom In May

Medicom Sofubi Swamp Thing Bizarro

Medicom kicked off its line of DC Comics soft vinyl Sofubi figures pretty conservatively with Batman and the Joker, but it looks like the second wave will get a little weirder. Sure, Superman's leading the three-figure wave, but he's joined by none other than Bizarro and Swamp Thing (who is am-ay-zing, and fights everything nasty).
