NECA’s Quarter Scale Danny DeVito Penguin Figure from ‘Batman Returns’ is finally happening
NECA puts out some extremely high-quality 1/4th scale figures, given the extremely low price point. They had several new figures on display last year at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, including their first ever figure from Batman Returns – a quarter scale Danny DeVito Penguin figure.
Last year when NECA had the figure on display he was still in the unfinished prototype stage. He was lacking many of the accessories that are going to be included with the final version of the figure.
This quarter scale rendition of the Penguin features the likeness of actor Danny DeVito, whom put on quite a memorable performance as the twisted Oswald Cobblepot in the 1992 movie. The performance still defines the character today.
NECA’s first ever Batman Return action figure stands about 15-inches tall and features synthetic hair and a movie authentic sculpt (as if you couldn’t tell already). For accessories, Penguin has a removable fabric coat trimmed with faux fur, a removable top hat, and an umbrella.
Clearly Penguin is absolutely loaded with fine details that are going to make any true Batman fan purchase this must-have figure. He’s scheduled for release in June 2015 for an SRP of $125.99. If you are looking to save a few bucks, many retailers, including this one, have him listed for less than $100.
