DC’s ever expanding lineup of collectibles seems to increase in quality these days.
Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and even lesser known characters such as Deadshot, Hawkgirl and iZombie’s Liv Moore have action figures dedicated to their likeness. Batman took center stage in his final Rocksteady Studios video game – Batman: Arkham Knight. To no one’s surprise, a great collection of new toy models have been developed for the massive cast of heroes and villains from the game itself.
These are 10 of the best looking action figures from Batman: Arkham Knight that are worth dedicating some shelf space to.
1. DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Knight: Arkham Knight Action Figure
It just wouldn’t feel right if we didn’t give top billing to the game’s star villain. The self-proclaimed “Arkham Knight” has an aura of mystery and misery surrounding him. With the help of Scarecrow and plenty of militarized muscle behind him, this baddie attempts to kill Batman. This new main adversary for Batman is a worthy foe who’s damn near impossible to take down. It’s in your best interest to show respect to the Arkham Knight by picking up his action figure.
2. DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Knight Action Figure
Batman has had to contend with a mega-sized version of Joker and several encounters with his rouges gallery in the Arkham games. In his final crusade to save Gotham City, he has to deal with a bigger threat from Scarecrow and the ever-so-vigilant Arkham Knight. The toy model you see here reflects the new Batsuit Gotham City’s savior has to wear into battle. DC’s “Dark Knight” exudes even more of his heroic traits here with his new coat of night armor here.
3. DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Knight: Red Hood Action Figure
If you were lucky enough to pre-order the game before it officially launched, you got to hop into two special story chapters. The better one in our opinion was the missions involving our favorite Batman anti-hero, the Red Hood. After going in guns blazing against Black Mask and his hoodlums, you’ll head into the main campaign and face a revelation – the Red Hood is actually the Arkham Knight! During his boss fight, he switches helmets and dons the mask that we all know him for. Sorry for the spoilers if you haven’t beaten the game yet (WHAT’S THE HOLDUP?). This figurine looks awesome as hell with the new headpiece for the Arkham Knight.
4. Batman: Arkham Knight Nightwing Action Figure
Dick Grayson has donned his alter-ego Nightwing once again to aid his mentor in his crusade against the Arkham Knight. For this entry in the Arkham series, Nightwing turns his attention to Penguin and his illegal gun trading dealings. This action figure showcases his new look, plus he comes with his electricity-filled melee weapons. This Bat Family member looks even sweeter with his new duds in perfect DC Collectible form.
5. Batman: Arkham Knight Robin Action Figure
There’s another Bat Family teammate who’s gotten the action figure treatment. Tim Drake aka the 3rd Robin. Robin has a lot more to do this time around as he keeps Batman’s enemies at bay once more. His hooded rendition makes him look even more brooding and menacing than he usually does. This figure comes with tons more secondary items than the other figures here – alternate hands, a shield and a Batarang. “The Boy Wonder” is at his best with this Arkham Knight figurine.
6. DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Knight: Scarecrow Action Figure
Scarecrow has always filled an important side role in the Arkham series. Batman has had to confront his biggest fears and brave the otherworldly hide and seek sections Scarecrow throws his way. Scarecrow’s latest plan is his most diabolical one yet – he plans to set off a massive Scare Toxin bomb that will bring Gotham City to its knees. If you’re feeling a bit more like an evil doer than do-gooder lately, then this selection is ripe for the taking. His creepy new look is spot on when it comes to the legit factor of his action figure.
7. DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Knight: Harley Quinn Action Figure
Someone had to free Poison Ivy from the confines of the GCPD, right? Harley Quinn took on the duty of getting her fellow Gotham City Siren out of jail by beating innocent victims into submission. Playing as Joker’s disturbed “love muffin” was a pretty cool experience. Although her story campaign lasted only a handful of minutes, it was still one of the better parts of DLC for the game. This figurine shows off the beautiful madness behind the eyes of Harley Quinn. You’ll be happy to see that she comes with her trusty baseball bat in hand.
8. DC Collectibles Batman Arkham Knight Azrael Action Figure
Azrael has chosen himself as the next savior of Gotham City. During the climactic events of Arkham Knight, he confronts Batman and lets him know he’s worthy of taking the mantle of the Dark Knight. It’s pretty cool to actually take control of Azrael as he’s tested during combat trails. This high quality action figure comes outfitted in the Suit of Sorrow and Sword of Sin. Azrael looks all the more menacing in his ceremonial garb, so he’ll keep all trespassers at bay if they approach your action figure collection.
9. Batman: Arkham Knight Catwoman Action Figure
Catwoman got into some trouble of her own during this final game in the Arkham line. The Riddler takes her hostage and tests Batman with a series of Batmobile challenges. Miss Selina Kyle holds her own during all this madness, though. She beats down Riddler’s robotic minions and offers a bunch of humorous quips when Batman’s in her presence. This action figure comes with a two awesome pieces of accessories – two pairs of hands and her trusty whip. The black skin-tight outfit Catwoman is known for is perfectly replicated with this figurine.
10. Batman: Arkham Knight Commissioner Gordon Action Figure
Our final pick of the action figure litter is Mr. Commissioner Gordon himself. He’s truly put to the test during the events of Arkham Knight. His daughter’s is trouble, his city’s under attack and the GCPD are under immense stress and danger. He looks great in action figure form here. Gordon’s additional items comes in the form of a walkie talkie, another pair of hands and more. Adding Batman’s confidant to your DC Collectibles collection is the right way to go, if you ask us.
