ToyFare #157 presented the world with Batman Arkham Asylum action figures by DC Direct. It was a ToyFare exclusive.

So here it is, check below in this picture Batman Arkham Asylum action figures with Batman, Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, and The Joker with Scarface as its accessory, just the action figures I was expecting them to come out with this time. They’re looking pretty good I might add.

Batman already has a lot of action figures from all sorts of different themes, and now that we know about it, on January 2011 Batman will have a new line of action figures based on the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game (PS3/Xbox)360). And not just Batman (or it wouldn’t be called a line).

Batman Arkham Asylum custom fan made action figure

When I first read about the news I thought I was having a deja vu because I thought there was already a Batman Arkham Asylum action figure.

And there was. But it’s a custom, a figure made by a fan. There are more fan-made customs from Arkham Asylum, like Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Bane, Killer Croc, and of course, Batman.

Coming back to the announcement, here’s what Toy Fare wrote back then:

Heads up, game boys and virtual girls. The only thing better than toys and video games are toys based on video games, and ToyFare #156 is packed with all three! Get ready for the sequel to the best comic book video game of all time as we go inside DC Direct’s red-hot new toy line based on Batman: Askham Asylum. New figures will make their world debut and Arkham Asylum Batman will appear on one of our covers.

ToyFare issue in June missed May’s release date of Batman Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition, but it’s just a little off.

Strange that they said it was the #156 issue but it’s actually the #157 where they’re making the world premiere preview of Batman Arkham Asylum action figures.

At the time there was no set word on whether we would be having extra action figures, but consider this: Batman Arkham Asylum is one heck of a video game (although short), a Batman action figure was bound to happen. It makes sense that they would be making more Arkham Asylum action figures. Who wouldn’t want to buy, besides Batman, which is a given, Joker, Harley Quinn or even some of the other villains?

These 5 figures below are all custom made-fan action figures of Arkham Asylum. Still pretty good on their own right. Remember these are not Batman Arkham Asylum action figures specific made by DC Direct, they’re customs made by fans.
