At Comi-Con at home last month McFarlane Toys revealed a number of DC Multiverse figures and now the Dark Knight Metal wave is up for pre-order. I was really impressed when I saw the figures, though I am not familiar with the comic book run though I do love the designs of the characters.
I really love the designs of the Infected which has an Evil Dead inspired look to it which is awesome. The Robin of Earth 22 looks fantastic and I would love to find all the variants of him. The Batman Who Laughs with Sky Tyrant Wings looks absolutely amazing and I really love the detail in the wings.
The BAF of The Merciless figure looks incredible and really makes me want to get all the figures in this wave to build him. Hopefully, these figures will pop up on UK e-retailers soon. These figures are scheduled to be released in the fall of this year.
Here’s product descriptions from McFarlane Toys as well as pre-order links too!
