DC Collectibles will be releasing a 5-pack for the Batman: Animated Series line featuring lone cop Renee Montoya together with four villains from the Rogues Gallery: Bane, Killer Croc, Mr. Freeze, and Poison Ivy.
What makes this 5-pack rather unique is the very welcomed novelty of the battery-powered lights that come with the deluxe packaging! It’s nice to see DC Collectibles impart a little refreshing creativity, and if this is a sign of things to come for the new year, boy are we in for a ride! Each figure in the set also comes with its own character-specific accessories and extra hands.
If you think you’ve seen these figures before (and if you think you have, you are probably up in arms about DC Collectibles making you purchase another 5-pack just to get that one figure that wasn’t released individually), you are sorta right.. and yet wrong at the same time. The four Rogues have appeared in the Batman: Animated Series line before, but in their The New Batman Adventures incarnations (hardcore fans who grew up watching both Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures would know the difference).
And just to convince you further that there is a difference, we at DCH have taken the liberty to piece together comparison photos (using our rubbish, unqualified Photoshop skills) for your convenience:
The 5-pack is scheduled to be released sometime in Q3 of 2017 (circa August/September) and will retail at USD174.99. It is available for pre-order now at Entertainment Earth and Big Bad Toy Store for discounted prices of USD149.99 and USD139.99 respectively.
