McFarlane DC Multiverse The Merciless BAF Wave - Superman, Batman, Robin and Batman who Laughs

The McFarlane Multiverse build-a-figure wave for The Merciless has been listed on Amazon in the US for preorder and alongside the listing are full images for each of the four figures.


The wave is made up of Batman from Dark Nights Metal, Superman (Infected), the Batman who Laughs with Sky Tyrant Wings and Robin from Earth-22. Robin will feature a random packed head with three options available - Smirk, Laugh and Scream - and that will leave some disparity in BAF parts for The Merciless if collectors track down all three versions.


The Build-a-Figure of The Merciless is broken down across the four figures. The full wave is due for release on the 12th of October 2020.

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...
