With DC Collectibles' "Batman: The Animated Series" action figure line, it's a pretty good time to be a fan of the revered animated series, as collectors can populate their shelves with the Dark Knight's friends and foes, not to mention his vehicles. And now Funko is heading to Gotham City with its signature Pop! touch.
The collectibles company has unveiled its first wave of "Batman: The Animated Series" Pop! vinyl figures, featuring Batman and Robin, joined by Batgirl, The Joker, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.
Airing from 1992 to 1995, "Batman: The Animated Series" brought a film noir aesthetic, and a more mature tone, to the Fox Kids lineup, as Batman and Robin faced villains ranging from Mr. Freeze and The Penguin to Sewer King and Red Claw. Aside from its acclaimed storytelling and design sensibilities, it's notable for its introduction of Harley Quinn and Renee Montoya (the latter actually debuted first in comic books, but was created for the cartoon). Both, of course, went on to enjoy popularity well beyond the animated series.
The "Batman: The Animated Series" Pop! line is set to debut November from Funko.
