Fox’s Gotham TV Series takes a look at the crime-ridden streets of Batman’s hometown before the Caped Crusader was old enough to protect it. It’s the story behind Detective James Gordon’s rise to prominence in Gotham City in the years before Batman’s arrival. Season 3 returns to Fox on April 24th, and the stakes are higher than ever. The latest Fox teaser seems to suggest that we’ll soon be seeing Nygma in all his glory as The Riddler! We’ve rounded up our favorite Gotham TV Action figures on the blog while we wait.
First up: our Diamond Select Series 1 – 3 piece Action Figures Set! Each 7-inch scale figure comes with character-specific accessories, as well as a deluxe diorama base representing a location in Gotham City: The Penguin comes with a pier, Jim Gordon comes with an alleyway, and Selina Kyle comes with a fire escape – connect Jim and Selina’s bases to form a larger scene! Each figure features approximately 16 points of articulation and comes packaged in the famous display-ready Select packaging, with spine art for easy shelf reference. Sculpted by Gentle Giant.
And, of course, our Funko Pops are one of our favorite collectible formats.
So many of our favorite comic book characters are getting the TV treatment these days. We’ll be doing a series on our favorite shows and our best tie-in action figures for each show. First on the list is Arrow!
Currently in it’s 6th season, Arrow airs on the CW on Wednesdays. It’s the modern retelling of the DC Comic character Green Arrow. Arrow is a vigilante superhero who uses archery, technology, and martial arts to fight crime. The world knows him as Oliver Queen, heir of the Queen Industries fortune, millionaire playboy, but his heroic alter-ego is Arrow: protector of the corrupt and violence ridden Starling City.
As a member of the Justice League, he relies on his unmatched archery skills, vast array of specialized arrows, incredible agility, and fierce hand-to-hand combat knowledge instead of super powers to uphold justice. The show stars Stephen Amell in the title role. Green Arrow has been portrayed two times by a real life actor, and voiced in twelve separate cartoon/animations since 1973.
The One:12 Collective Green Arrow features highly realistic fabric clothing, hood with integrated wire for posing and draping and so much more! In the box, you’ll find standard masked portrait, “OTV” protective tunic, Armored boots and gloves, Harness, Bow and quiver, Standard arrow, grappling hook arrow, PETN explosive arrow, Kryptonite arrow, three-arrow bundle, and bundle of arrows for quiver, Knife and sheath, Posing hands (L&R), Fists (L&R), Bow holding hand (L), Multi-arrow holding hand (R), Single arrow holding hand (L&R), Knife holding hand (R), Quiver-arrow pulling hand (R), amd display base with posing post!
Green Arrow is packaged in a deluxe, fifth panel window box with character-specific slipcover. Designed for collector convenience, the packaging allows for both maximum protection as well as ease of removal for display.
We also love the Funko 3 3/4 Inch ReAction Retro Action figures, and there’s no shortage of Arrow themed ones! These figures have 5 points of articulation and feature the 1980’s style card back design with coffin-style blister where the action figure is displayed. Perfect for fans and collectors alike!
Another favorite is the DC Comics: TV Series: Arrow Multiverse Action Figure. These highly detailed 6 inch figures are meticulously designed to be truly authentic. Fans and collectors will love the 20 points of articulation, detailed paint and iconic elements.
And lastly, we can’t forget the awesome Funko Pops! – a favorite format among so many. We love these stylized 3 3/4-inch tall Pop! Vinyl Figures, available as super villain Deathstroke and Arrow himself.
