With so many figure waves and movie-related action figure merchandise coming out this year, I wanted to focus on the Batman side of things, in particular, his villains.
Sure most of his own Rogue's Gallery has seen their likenesses translated into action figures.
But some haven't. Here's my own Top 10 list of Bat-Villains who haven't been made into action figures and why they should.
These are in effect, the last group of villains worth being immortalized in plastic....
10). Crazy Quilt:
I know, I know....but hey, that was also the charm of that Killer Moth or Copperhead figures wasn't it? Or Killer Shark? I'd buy it. I might even by 5. 'Cause fuck you that's why.
9). The Ventrolquist and Scarface:
Okay, sure, maybe he wouldn't see enough,maybe he would. But seeing the Ventriloquist and Scarface finally be made into action figures would be a a necessary name to be crossed off.
Okay, sure this one's a bit of a cheat since he's appeared as an action figure for the Arkham game line of figures, but surely he's due a proper comic-faithful version right?
7). The KGBeast C&C:
How there isn't a figure made of this guy, I'll never know, but there should. With the all the potential of accessories and an iconic look, the 'Beast just won't be done justice unless he's
a big collect and connect figure in the same vein as Bane.
6). Blockbuster C&C:
Wow. This picture alone pretty much kills any argument for finally making this guy huh? Seriously, he fucking looks like a flesh-colored, hippy version of the Hulk. Jesus Hulk even.
5). The Electrocutioner:
Sure you might not see this guy outside of a sporadic appearance here or there, but with his costume, he'd be a solid addition to the plastic rogue's gallery. Hey he was on an episode of JLU fer' crissakes!
Talk about a character that has fallen so far from the heights he debuted from.....even if you immediately ignore the fact that he was taken out in his official debut by a dickshot from Catwoman. But I digress. Prometheus just has an overall very cool look, plus add in a removable helmet or a swap-able helmeted head, and all in his classic look, and let your heroes(especially your Green Arrow and Speedy figures, quake in fear)
And yes, another cheat, since there has been a Hush figure to go with the Hush wave of figures, but it's way past time a we say a redo. What? Of course I'm being serious, why do you ask?
2). The Wraith:
The Anti-Batman of the 80's, The Wraith was pretty much an intentional evil Batman rip-off. But he had a nice gimmick of having an evil twist to Bruce's origin, losing parents, but turning to crime instead. Yeah I know, Prometheus pretty much stole that didn't he?
Anyways there's a couple variations on the outfit since there have been multiple wearers of that name and identity.
1). Grim Reaper (Year 2):
I think he Batman's only (maybe?) fought this guy twice. I love that outfit though. Such a waste not to use him again.
Okay, here's two more:
-The Calendar Man:
-The Calculator in his classic look
That's my list. What's your pick for a Bat-Villain that hasn't been made as an action figure yet?
