As many of you may know NECA are doing 1/4 scale figures based on DC Comics movies. About a year or so ago they did a figure of 89 Batman and now they have followed that up with Danny De Vito’s Penguin from its sequel – Batman Returns. I have to say since when this figure was first revealed I was very impressed with the likeness of De Vito; it blew me away and it still has that effect on me now.
The level of detail is staggering. I have a vivid memory of the character and NECA have nailed it perfectly.
It has taken NECA a while to get this figure in production and it looks to be very much worth the wait. Though the figure’s production has hit a snag and they could not get his iconic umbrella done correctly, so to make up for that they have given him five new accessories. Those accessories are a monocle, an extra hand, a half eaten fish, cigarette in holder and a Cobblepot for Mayor sign. He’ll also come with a removable coat (which looks glorious) and hat.
I’m not sure how well articulated he’ll be as he’s a very rotund character. I feel NECA would of made him as articulated as they could.
He’ll be released in July and if you’re a fan of the film, the character and NECA’s other DC 1/4 scale offerings, I would highly recommend this figure.
