DCC takes aim with Arkham City Deadshot

Nov 06 // Scarecroodle

I still think this design rather painfully misses the mark...

DC Collectibles' latest addition to their articulate Batman: Arkham City line is none other than the mercenary Deadshot.

As much as I wasn't fond of the design itself, the figure seems even more horrendous. It's strange that Rocksteady was able to come up with a costume for the character that looks even more ridiculous than his bright red and yellow comic appearance, but they somehow managed it. And, given all the disparate costume elements and textures, the subsequent DC Collectibles figure goes from merely looking goofy to both goofy and awkward. Everything about him just looks too bulky and the cut-articulation only accentuates the issue. Deadshot just seems like a complete mess. While I would have happily taken a Hugo Strange figure instead (and I'm not sure why they haven't done Strange yet), even Calendar Man would probably have been an improvement.

Anybody feel differently? Is there some charm here that I just don't see?
