I know Tim Fox, son of Wayne Enterprises C.O.O. Lucius Fox, was the Future State Batman, but I'm otherwise unknowledgeable regarding the character, purchasing this figure because it's a visually interesting variation on Batman. The McFarlane DC Multiverse line has been at least half Batman-related figures and continues to be so. Having passed on several very nice McFarlane Batman figures the last couple years, this one reminded me of the DC SuperHeroes Knight Shadow Batman, a long coveted variant figure from 2007 with a full mask like this Future State figure.
I said in my last post that McFarlane figures can have somewhat cumbersome articulation, but usually have nice sculpts with lots of textures throughout. The cape on this figure has a convincing leathery appearance like none I've seen before- really nice! And the Batarang is a more slim, much improved version than what we got on the first Batman. Extra fists are appropriate on this figure but missing are the escrima sticks Tim would be known for wielding.
In a world where Hasbro now asks $26.00 and up for an action figure, I always appreciate McFarlane including a black disk base with even their standard $20.00 figures. I'd have paid two more dollars for a flight stand some of McFarlane's have- that and some fighting sticks would have made this seem more deluxe. Otherwise, his figure hits all the notes of character visually and has serviceable articulation. The textures in the sculpt and raised armor panels make this otherwise dark, monochromatic figure kind of special.
