Heir To The Demon Throne!
Swooping in with all of the cocky style expected of him, Robin (Damian Wayne) from DC’s Infinite Frontier Future State story arc has arrived with his own action figure! There’s also a Gold Label Unmasked version sold exclusively on the McFarlane Toys website and on a few of those pesky scalper sites as well. As much as I love Batman, Robin is definitely starting to make a dent in my DC Comics figure and comic book collection. In fact, I probably have more Robin figures, books, and statues than I have of any other DC character except for Batman. In any case, let’s take a look at this great figure!
Robin comes with the standard collector card and base as well as a lone accessory, his sword. The sword looks great and easily fits into Robin’s right hand. He features a flowing black cape with a yellow interior, grey high tops with green laces and faded red soles, and his suit is primarily grey with faded red trim. His utility belt is lined with silvery white snapped pockets.
I really love the attention to detail on this figure. His shoes are a particularly cool highlight and I love the grid-like look of his shirt and pants. I have to be honest and say that this particular outfit is one of my least favorite Robin suits from the comics, but I do like it on this figure. Robin is also very poseable with only minor limitations at the shoulder (as always seems the case with McFarlane’s DC figures). He’s also about an inch and a half shorter than other figures in this line in order to maintain scale. That doesn’t bother me but I did want to mention it for collectors who might be curious about the scale.
This is a pretty brief review but I have very few complaints about this figure. He looks great, has solid articulation, and stands on my shelf with ease. I definitely recommend picking up this figure, especially if you are a Robin fan!
Thanks for checking out my review. See you again soon!
