Batman Unlimited: Beware the Batman

Batman Unlimited's Beware the Batman.  I can't support the design, but FFS I like this figure and the show...
Seriously.  What is there to like about this design.  Or the show.  This marks the end of 6 inch DC figures by Mattel.  Yes, this is one of the last figures we get unless you count the garbage shown at SDCC.

Who designed this show's characters?  Ugh. They should have tapped Sean "Cheeks" Galloway for designs.  He did a great job with the animated Hellboy movies...  After Bruce Timm, Cheeks would have been an acceptable replacement (we all miss Bruce Timm!!!!!) Check this out:

Anyhow...  I am loving the show.  Why?  I ask myself the same question.  Honestly it pisses me off how much I enjoy the episodes (the first episode was one of the worst).  I disliked The Flashpoint Paradox because of the art/animation the same way I dislike Beware the Batman, but where I couldn't forgive Flashpoint, I can forgive Beware the Batman.  GDI I love it.  Hate me for it.  I hate myself for it.

As far a figure goes, it works.  It isn't great, but satisfies the articulation requirements of a fun figure to play with...  The paint is dark and slightly metallic.  No accessories, surprise!  

Anyhow.  I love to hate to love this figure.  So, I have pics but the will be brief as he isn't all that exciting... and I have pics of him getting crushed by a couple of villains...

Here are the pictures that I managed to take.
