Amazing “Batman: The Animated Series” Collectible Villain Set

This week one of the most iconic animated series from the 90s turned 25 years old. For those of you that grew up in the 90s you probably loved or at least were familiar with Batman: The Animated Series. For many kids that grew up watching this show Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamil (Joker) defined Batman and the Joker for their entire generation. There were so many great story lines, iconic animation, and memorable villains that came out of that series. Well in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary DC Collectibles is releasing the Batman: The Animated Series GCPD Rogues Gallery action figure set. One look at this set and it’s obvious that any fan of the animated series or Batman in general will want to add this to their collection.

The figures look amazing and really capture that iconic feel from the animated series. Included in the set are Bane, Killer Croc, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and last but certainly not least officer Renee Montoya to keep the criminals in line. Looking at this great line up of figures some of you might be tempted to open the box and remove the figures from their individual cells. That is definitely understandable especially considering that they all come with a range of accessories. However, this is not just a simple open and toss to the side type of display box. Not only is it nicely detailed on every side, but the best part is that each character’s cell lights up inside the box.

There is a small switch at the top of the box, hidden under the roof that turns on 4 colored LEDs that illuminate each villains cell with a different color. Bane’s cell glows an evil looking red, Killer Croc gets an amber color, Mr. Freeze gets his iconic blue to give the illusion of a temperature controlled cell, and Poison Ivy of course gets green. I think the biggest problem I would have is deciding whether or not to open the box and display the figures with the others from the series, or leave it the way that it is. I guess that is just something that is best left up to each individual collector. The Batman: The Animated Series GCPD Rogues Gallery action figure set is currently selling for $179.95 U.S. and you can definitely expect that price to just go up as they sell out.
