DC Direct Return of Bruce Wayne Figures

Posted by inferiorego (23163 posts) - - Show Bio

DC's The Source recently released pictures for the upcoming DC Direct line of Return of Bruce Wayne figures. The figures are based off of Bruce Wayne in different time periods that appear in the current Return of Bruce Wayne series and storyline. 
 
According to the Source, the first wave of this series will be on a retailer's shelf near you April of 2011. They are all based off of Andy Kubert's cover art designs, so there is some consistency to the art, since each issue has a different interior artist. The figures include, in the order in the gallery below, Prehistoric Batman, Wild West Batman, High Seas Batman, and Witch-Hunter Batman.
 
These figures all look great, but April of next year? That's 11 months away!  Sadly, since we don't have time machines, all we have are these pictures to hold us over. Although, in the Return of Bruce Wayne mini-series, we've only seen the Prehistoric Batman (Issue 1) and Witch-Hunter Batman (Issue 2), we get a sneak peek of what the other Batmen will look like. I must say, that Wild West Batman is looking pretty sweet. In addition, I could buy that Witch-Hunter Batman and have him cast his Puritan judgment on my other Batman toys. For now, though, we wait until April 2011. 
 
Which figures would you like to pick up? Have you been keeping up with Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne?
 
 Thanks to EisforExtinction for giving us the scoop!

Wow, they are actually doing the loin cloth version too. Didn't I pick the perfect day to finish up my Batman 4koma?
I'm kind of partial to the Old West Batman figure.

gah! my poor piggy bank...

These are painful. I'll only buy these as jokes gifts for my friends because it's just so horrifying that this story warrants figures.

I wonder what Roman Age Batman would look like.
#17 Posted by EisforExtinction (1909 posts) - - Show Bio

One action figure leads to two. Thus I can't do it.

I hope theres one for the 1920s bats. 
 
P.S.  I know someone else real bring it up but whats up with pirate bats having a gun and not the wild west bats.

I hope not, Roman Ages would have Batman in a toga or a skirt, which wouldn't look too "intimidating" for character like Batman.

We're DC; we'll milk it dry! 
 
This from someone who has bought as many Batman figures as humanly possible...

I got to ask?  Isn't this Series a little too new for  Action Figures? Issue Two hasn't even debuted yet?  The First Issue, wasn't even that great, Little Too Cliche for me. 

#25 Posted by The_Martian (36984 posts) - - Show Bio

#26 Posted by rlmay3 (256 posts) - - Show Bio

#27 Posted by greenenvy (634 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe Jonah hex will guest star in the western batman time-frame when that book comes out.

An action figure line? 
Wow! 
Did not see that coming. Big surprise. Especially considering the whole stoopid idea for Return of Bruce Wayne is basicly an advert for toys. 
 
Can I have some decent Batcomics once this nonsense is over please?

Too new? 
The series is an advert not a story dude. 
At least they haven't completely insulted us by bringing the action figures out before the mini series.
