Minifigure Review: The Riddler from DC Comics- Batman Tiny Mights by CultureFly


   I haven't reviewed every sculpt from this series, but I have at least checked out about half of them. Today I'm wrapping up my look at this series (for now) with a review of the Riddler minifigure. Here's one I would love to have scored in green, but no luck. I did get him in red, yellow, and the glow-in-the-dark blue, though. Ready to get puzzled? I thought the Riddler was a nice fit for April Fool's Day. Join me after the break...

The Facts:

Height: 1 and 3/4ths inches

Non-Scalper Price: $5-$6 dollars for 3 figures and a plastic Batmobile case

The Positives:

* The Riddler has a great pose, a very sharp sculpt, and a very cool design. It's a classic look with the suit, snappy hat (with a "?" of course), and his question mark shaped staff. The Riddler also nicely captures elements of the classic M.U.S.C.L.E. and Monster in My Pocket aesthetic. Not 100%, but close enough for me. He's a dastardly, dapper, deductive dude.

*  These sets come in a little plastic Batmobile with a plastic wrap around the middle. The Batmobile splits in half, so you can use it for storing little trinkets or accessories. It's a neat idea and the fact that it's translucent means you can look through it (if you find these in stores) to identify the figures you need.

   Other than coming in green (I'd love him in the same green that the Monster in My Pocket figures used, even though that would suit a classic jumpsuit wearing Riddler better), there's not much more I could ask for from a Riddler minifigure. He looks just excellent. CultureFly made a very strong series of minifigures (all of the ones I never reviewed like Batman, Batgirl, Robin, and Harley Quinn were all excellent) and I'm hoping they continue with another set. The Riddler gets a Great from me and is well worth tracking down. If I find these in stores at some point I may still review a few more.

If you're looking for more of the Riddler I've also reviewed the DC Multiverse The Riddler (Arkham City) and The Riddler (DC Classic), the Kenner Legends of Batman Riddler, the DC Collectibles Greg Capullo styled Riddler, Mattel's Classic TV Series Riddler, the Nano Metalfigs DC63 Riddler, and the Lego Riddler Chase building set.
