DCD/DCC Scarecrow from Arkham Knight. Ya know, I still can't choose between this version and Asylum as to which design I like better. Asylum is creepy for sure, but this guy retains a bit of the creepy factor but also looks pretty badass. And as far as poseable figures go, I like that he doesn't have the whole hunchback thing going on, which really wears down the knee joints on both my Asylum and Hush Scarecrows. And this guy is just an awesome addition to the Arkham line in terms of both sculpt and articulation. They went all out to make him as poseable as possible. He's got multidirectional ankles (even the one in the brace), hips, and shoulders. Hinged knees and elbows, rotation in the right calf and left thigh (because of the leg brace), wrists, bicep, and head, and waist rotation with a bit of extra give. And the majority of his tubes are soft and have plenty of give, even the "metal hinge" on his right elbow is made of rubber or extremely soft plastic and rotates to accommodate the elbow joint. The leg brace itself is sculpted hard plastic, and with my DCD Arkham figure track record, I'm afraid to mess with that leg, but where the brace meets the ankle has an extra bit of room so you don't lose any ankle pivot. Even the shoelaces are soft enough to move a little. About the only accent that's a hard sculpt other than the brace are the needles on his right hand. As for the sculpt and paint apps, pretty much what you'd expect from this line and then some. He also comes with a mask (still haven't played the game, so not sure how that plays in) that makes him a whole different kind of creepy. His hood is extremely soft and can be pushed back off his head, and while his head sculpt and paint look great, the hood doesn't lay right, sort of has to be tucked, so it doesn't look very good back. And it tends to hit the strap on the back of the mask and push it up. The hood can be up or down when the mask is on though. I think that about covers him. He's an awesome figure, I highly recommend him.
