We've gotten an Azrael action figure before from Mattel. Originally in the DC Super Heroes toy line then re-released in a 2 pack with Batgirl in 2009. Back when Bane broke Batman's back in the Knightfall series, someone new had to step in and take over for Bruce Wayne. Enter Jean Paul Valley, aka Azrael. DC Universe Classics wave 16 includes a this new Azrael Batman action figure so lets take a closer look:
If you buy this bad boy brand new, then below is what it will look like. Typical Mattel DCUC packaging. For all you people unfamiliar with Azrael Batman, a nice little blurb on the back of the packaging will give you a quick briefing.
In the accessory department, Azrael Batman only comes with the collect and connect piece of Bane (the right leg) and nothing else. But because this Az-Bat action figure is so cool and his armor is suppose to be supporting his weapons arsenal, its really not a big complaint.
Although not a very common character in the DC Universe (he's currently deceased and last made a very small appearance in the Blackest Night comic series), this version of Azrael is a very sweet action figure. Batman fans shouldn't pass up on this great collectible.
