The paint work on the figure is fine, it’s almost not notable. That’s pretty good for a high contrast figure like Two-Face. The scarred side of his face is probably the make or break part of the paint job and mine came okay. The eyes and mouth are sharp but that hair line is a little questionable. And I did have a bit of black paint on the white side of the coat (it is extra paint and the piece is molded in flesh tone), but other than that everything looks sharp.
Two-Face is the accessory king in wave one. He’s got the standard turnaround art stand (though the giant apparatus on the clasp doesn’t stay up well on this stand, it falls his knees pretty easily), and three sets of hands: fists, relaxed (w/ coin), & grasping. Based on the other figures, you give him one offensive weapon and he’s probably good to go. That’s not the case, in addition the stand and hands, Two-Face has got seven more accessories!
All seven hail from Two-Face’s first appearance in TNBA, “Sins of the Father”. Some are typical Two-Face pieces like the pistol and the Tommy gun, but the others are unique to this episode: a stopwatch, red & blue canisters and a bag to hold them, and the gas mask Two-Face used in the episode. These are all great pieces. I love that the bag can hold the canisters (& stay mostly closed). He can hold both guns very well. And the gas mask is sweet and fits on him perfectly. I am slightly concerned that I’ll scrape up the face with the mask, but he looks great with it on.
Overall, Two-Face is another great addition the line. He’s my least favorite of the four (though Freeze is probably the weakest of the four), but he still came out very well done. This line is coming together so well (as long as nothing breaks!) that I can’t fathom it took so long to do. I didn’t even know I would want these as much as I do, even the TNBA designs I’m not as keen on. I have heard that this version is so similar to BTAS that it could preclude that as a figure. I hope not. They would look similar next to each other for sure, but I still would like the original. I hope they do both.

Batman Adventures 6″ Two-Face Review”
I expected DCC to use a suit buck for this one, but since you say GG are handling this sub-line, I guess they made their own?
He does look good initially BUT they finally found something to detract from those annoying hip holes: those tiny feet.
As for the coin, at least he isn’t holding it in his fingertips like several versions of the old BTAS/NBA figures did.
Great review, as per.
The TNBA sculpts are what convinced me not to bother with this line in the end. Don’t like the deigns nearly as much as the BTAS ones. And after what I’ve heard about quality control and fragility on some people’s figures, I’m glad I decided not to start with these things, however much I loved the cartoons.
I highly doubt they’ll only do the one version of Two Face. It might take them longer to get there, but there’s been a big enough call for BTAS figures that I’m sure we’ll get him eventually… probably as the 22nd figure, since they made the first figure the second in the wave.
Yeah, I really hope they make the BTAS version of Two-Face, too. For now, I’ve got both lines displayed as one, but as more figures are released, I plan on making two unique displays.
And another character that didn’t see a lot of change on the New Adventures was Harley Quinn. Her and Two-Face were the least tweaked designs, but I’d gladly buy both versions if DC Collectibles releases them.
Reading the comics in the voices from the show really made these zing. A great review once again.
I saw all 4 of these thursday but knew I didn’t have enough. Impressive in person but yes that qc ish has me nervous. I like them though so debating still.
Giving up collecting so my son can you now…eat and have clothes, was a no brainer but I am sad to be missing these. One day…
