I’m not sure how to feel about the fact that we’re getting a Capullo-designed Two-Face action figure.
On the plus side, I kinda like the facial sculpt. I’m not really a fan of the missing eye, but the scarring looks okay otherwise, and the good side looks better than the average Two-Face toy. I also like his proportions, since he looks to be about average build rather than a muscular giant.
But so much else bugs me at the same time. Like, why the hell did they get Capullo, when he’s only drawn Harvey for about two or three panels with a unique design that hasn’t been used since? Why not have a Big Burn figure designed by Patrick Gleason, the artist who has drawn the sole notable Two-Face appearance in the New 52? Also, what the hell is with the shoes, especially the gold trim? He looks like half an Elvis.
I’m also not a fan of Harvey’s entire hand being scarred either, because if anything other than his face should be scarred, it should just be the palm of his hand from where he reached up to grab his burning face. This isn’t B:TAS.
Which reminds me, I think I’ve reached a point where I don’t like the black and white costume on any other Harvey than the TAS design. At this point, using the black and white seems less stylish and more lazy, like no one is willing to try coming up with new and interesting fashion choices for Harvey.
All in all, I don’t hate this figure, but if I do buy one, I may have to get a second one later to customize. Still, despite my complaints, I’m surprised and happy to see some actual Two-Face merch, because that shit’s just so rare for reasons I don’t understand.
