In a brand new video from Todd McFarlane, the McFarlane DC Multiverse line was expanded once again with confirmation a new wave, led by a 2nd figure of Batman Beyond will land in 2021 and this will be a four figure BAF wave.
The new wave is taken from the Batman Beyond Comic Series and the BAF figure is specifically from the Futures End story with the Joker Bot. To build it you will need to collect the parts from the four other Multiverse figures.
There is a difference this time round is that the figures in the wave wont be released all at the same time, and rather the wave will see each figure released across a period of months.
The wave is a Target Exclusive in the US and it is only in America that we follow the staggered release schedule. We start in April 2021 with Batman Beyond and the first part of your Joker Bot. The next release is June when we welcome Shriek. August see's the arrival of Batwoman Beyond and the wave (and the Joker Bot) will be completed in October with Blight - who is someway off release and doesn't have a prototype figure as yet.
For collectors outside the US, it has been confirmed now since Todd's video that the wave will release in its entirety, but at the end of 2021. That means for collectors here in the UK we will be waiting circa 6 months or more to get a figure the US collectors will have in April - this will certainly drive aftermarket pricing even more so across the globe.
So far, aside from the image above and its silhouette outlines of the later figures, all we have are some screengrabs from Todd's video (view the full presentation at the end of this blog) but expect some glamour shots soon of the first couple of figures and BAF at least.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
