Along with new Batman and Zatana statues and a pair of Teen Titan-ic plushes, DC Collectibles coolest upcoming release is the Batman Animated GCPD Rogues Gallery five-pack, which demonstrates how screwed Gotham's police force would be without Batman. Ignore the turtle.
The figures are outstanding, as is the norm with DC Collectibles Batman: The Animated Series stuff, but the packaging really drives the point home. We've got four jail cells containing (somehow) Bane, Killer Croc, Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy, and off to the side in a little police kiosk is Renee Montoya, utterly doomed.
BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES GCPD ROGUES GALLERY ACTION FIGURE 5-PACK Packaging concept is shown, but artwork is not final. Description: A lone cop — Renee Montoya — is surrounded by some of Gotham City's greatest evildoers in this amazing new action figure 5-pack inspired by Batman: The Animated Series that comes in deluxe packaging with battery-powered lights! Each figure in this set comes with its own character-specific accessories and extra hands. 1:13/6 inch scale MSRP: $US175 ($233)
The $US175 ($233) package features comes complete with character-specific accessories and plenty of extra hands, and the packaging features battery-powered lights, which is something more collectible figure packaging should have so I can stop going to IKEA an trying to figure out how to use a drill.
We don't have an Australian specific price yet, but if you want to grab the figurines when they go on sale in August here's what will be on offer.
