Medicom has announced a fifth wave of its popular DC Comics Retro Sofubi toy line with two new characters from the Batman Universe! DC Comics Retro Sofubi Collection Wave 5 includes Batman’s sidekick, Robin, the Boy Wonder, and the gentleman of crime, The Penguin. I know there are a ton of great Batman family heroes and villains (and of course they had to produce a Robin figure), but how about Medicom give us a few other members of the Justice League? I’d personally love to see a Wonder Woman or Martian Manhunter figure in this retro style, and I’m sure fans would gobble up villains like Lex Luthor or Deathstroke.
The DC Comics Retro Sofubi toy line features old school looking figures cast in soft Japanese vinyl from molds by Bear Model and paint designs by Frenzy. Each figure stands 10” tall, features 4 points of articulation, and come packaged in a full color window box. Robin includes a vinyl cape, but where the heck is The Penguin’s signature umbrella!?! While the DC Comics Retro Sofubi Collection Wave 5 is not expected to ship in May 2015, you can pre-order both figures from Entertainment Earth now for $79.99 each here.
