Batman: The Animated mini-series

It's 25 years since Batman: The Animated Series brought a classic yet modern Dark Knight to the small screen.
Rated as the best adaptation of Batman anywhere outside of comics by IGN and the second-best animated series of all time (after The Simpsons, of course), Batman: The Animated Series appealed to comic-book readers, fans of the recent Tim Burton Batman movies, and new young fans alike

 As part of the DC Super Hero Collection license we will produce a new mini-series of figurines and magazines based on the hit 1992 Batman: The Animated Series. The figurines will be presented at 1:16 scale and feature the main characters from the show in classic poses, and sculpted in the unique art style of the show.

Each figurine will be presented in a window box designed packaging to match the recently re-launched DC Super Hero Collection. The figurine will also come with a 12-page magazine that will feature articles and artwork from the Batman: The Animated Series."
Six seemed a good number for a mini-series. Of course, Batman and the Joker had to be included, but who else? Harley Quinn seemed a cert. The character was created for the series long before she made it to the comic books (and eventually the big screen in 2016's Suicide Squad). So, here was the provisional running order...
Classic villain the Penguin had a great look for the show, rotund, finely dressed, with the monocle providing a sophisticated touch. Catwoman's grey all-in-one jumpsuit and whip bore similarities to her contemporary comic-book portrayal, while a sultry Poison Ivy gave the set a satisfying 50/50 male to female ratio.
That was the easy bit. Next up, in two weeks' time, Part 2: Development, the list gets switched, and finding the perfect pose.
