Returning to DC Animated fold after a lengthy absence (outside of producing), Bruce Timm will be bringing an all-new version of the Justice League to life with Justice League: Gods and Monsters. Just like other DCU animated features of late, the direct-to-video feature will be getting an action figure line. Unlike those other series however, this line will fit right in with the recent Batman: The Animated Series collection.
After a slight delay to improve the quality of the line, DC Collectibles Batman: The Animated Series second wave arrived not too long ago. Featuring Robin, the Joker and Man-Bat as they appeared in the original version of the show, this wave brings back fond memories. The figures aren't so bad either.
As much as I loved the Batman: The Animated Series figures that I had when I was a kid (shout out to Combat Belt Batman), the one thing that always bugged me about them was the lack of articulation. Even if you're really, really into seeing Batman just stiff-legged Yakuza kick the Joker, which I am, five joints do not make for a lot of fun times.
Now, though, my childhood dreams have once again come true with the new DC Collectibles line of B:TAS figures, which are rocking some awesome, DC Universe Classics-esque articulation and beautiful designs by Bruce Timm. Wave 1's Batman and Catwoman have already been announced, but today, we've got a look at the second wave, featuring Robin, The Joker and Poison Ivy, plus painted versions of wave 1's Mr. Freeze and Two-Face.
