In 2016, Diamond Select Toys released their first three 7 inch Select Action Figures based on the DC TV show of Gotham. The series was a precursor to the Batman story and featured the earlier lives of key Batman characters like Bruce Wayne, Alfred, Jim Gordon and Selina Kyle. It also acted as some origin stories for villains like Penguin, Mr Freeze and The Riddler, Ed Nygma.
The figures were released in the larger Select scale packaging along with a diorama piece - including some parts that interconnected to make a larger display. Toys R Us in the US also had an exclusive agreement to sell the figures without the diorama pieces on blister cards.
The series ran for 4 waves, three figures released in each wave. After the release of wave 4 in 2017, Diamond Select confirmed the range of figures was benched due to slow sales and further figures were unlikely.
