If you look at him in the game, he’s even bigger.

Yeah I always felt like he was just too damn big in the game, and I never bought the DCC figure. He may be kind of a hulking character, but he's a zombie, not a giant.

I honestly like the size of him as just a grundy. Im still wrapping my head around whether I wanna use video game designs to go with figures based on comics

It’s a real shame they made Grundy the BAF instead of a mega figure like Titan Joker. He’s comically undersized. Decent for a comic Grundy though. Mr Freeze actually would have been a better BAF. Probably can’t do him until the gun thing gets resolved though.

Stumbled across the entire wave this morning and only picked up Batman (for now - because I'm one of those weirdo's who mostly only gets Batman).
I always thought the first version Todd did of Arkham Batman was mostly decent, it just had a head that didn't look right (I'm my opinion anyway) and this recent re-use of that kind of confirms how I felt. It's obviously not up to Multiverse late 2022 standards but overall this improved head really elevates the figure to the level I felt it could have been all those years ago. I'm not a massive thrilled with seeing them reuse some of bodies from earlier in the series but in this instance it feels like an acceptable fix on something I really really wanted to love the first go around.

It sounds absolutely NUTS to say out loud - but aesthetically it's one of my favorite looking Batman figures on my Multiverse/Batman shelf. Also I'm incredibly biased because I love those games and the whole overly edgy vibe they have.

I canceled this wave for now seeing Grundy is greatly undersized. Grundy should have been a mega figure and around the same height and bulk as the Spawn series Overtkill.

It doesn't sound nuts. From what I've seen, this will be my default Batman for the foreseeable future. Can't wait for my Amazon order to ship.

Speaking of, where did you happen to stumble across this wave?

i found the wave this morning too at my target on the way to work. they had two sets as i saw two of both batman and ra's and one penguin that were left. batman looks amazing and ra's looks good in hand. i'm planning to hold out till these go on sale like all the other baf waves have done, but seeing batman in person might make me get him at least and wait on the rest.

Haven’t seen any comparisons with the previous Batman so here’s one from the review spot.

The body definitely looks better with the new head, and you can see the difference with the new update parts.

Is the AC cape different? The one on the AA figure is annoying because it's longer than the legs.

yes the cape on the AC batman is new, it's shorter and swept to the side.
