Toy Fair 2014: Square-Enix’s DC Comics Play Arts Kai


So we meet again, DC Variants Play Arts Kai. They’re basically bizarre, carnival funhouse versions of the characters we all know and love. We’ve seen some of them before, and I will never get the image of Yaoi Hands Green Lantern out of my head. Or Wonder Woman’s ridiculous butt. This time around we’ve got the Joker (who honestly doesn’t look that different–it’s the Joker, he always looks weird), Harley Quinn (the robot? what is going on there), Darkseid, Hawkman (who might as well be He-man, what even), the weird Batman we’ve already seen, and then more regular versions of Nightwing and Deathstroke.

Then there’s Rorschach from Watchmen, who I am pretty excited to see in figure form! Mostly because then I can re-enact the movie but have everyone pronounce his name correctly. Dear Zack Snyder: there’s a reason they call him Raw Shark in prison.

[Edit: Robin, not Nightwing! Thanks, Methos~]
