Dark Knight Rises action figures underwhelm FTN

May 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Here’s a sneek peek at the first wave of figures from The Dark Knight Rises by Mattel from the guys at the Bat Blog. And we must say… how underwhelming.

Like the classic days, it looks like there’ll be a million repainted Batman figures in each pack to keep the shelves warm, while the characters you really want – like Bane in this one – will be short packed. They go on release on May 27th. These pics were taken at Walmart.

Ah well, here’s the pic. The packaging is very cheap looking and seriously… would Batman every wear THOSE outfits?!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
