So, McFarlane is bringing back the chase. That is the Chase figure variant. This has been an old gimmick with comics and toys for a long time now. One case of six regular colored Batman figures gives you the chase vintage 80s blue and grey version with oval Batman logo. This is what I refer to as the ‘Neal Adams Batman’. Neal reinvented Batman in the late 70s with this new look from the campy 60s Adam West Batman.
This has been your daily dose of Bathistory.
This is a new take on a old look, and by using the molds already in place, it is an easy swap and wham– a scalper’s paradise. These have been very good figures for McFarlane and the ones we have got our hands on are great. Getting new Chase versions will be much more difficult going forward, but will assure more collectors will be going down the toy aisle even more to snag one.
