Just in time for the most wonderful time of year, Mattel’s next couple of waves of DC Comics Multiverse figures are hitting store pegs. Amongst those waves is the Collect and Connect Rookie assortment. Featured in the line are Rebirth Batman, Reaper, Batwing, CW’s Atom and the reason we’re all gathered here today…Duke Thomas.
Currently known as Signal, Duke made his DC Comics debut in the pages of Batman Vol 2 #21 back in 2013. For a short period donning the Robin costume, Duke got his start fighting crime in DC Comics short lived comic We Are Robin.
Mattel’s new Multiverse figure is based on Duke’s appearance in that book. Sporting Robin’s traditional colors by way of a red jacket with large yellow “R” on the chest, green pants and red hightops, the figure comes with two heads: one wearing Duke’s modified “R” helmet and one unmasked. Duke’s also accessorized with red nunchaku and a leg for the waves Collect and Connect Rookie.
So? Is the figure worth it? Besides the fact that he’s only packed one per case, the only way to truly know for sure is to check out the latest episode of #saturdaynightlosers.
