Here they are in all there Lego'y glory.

Going in box order we start with Batman. He is of course the usual black suited batman but with his glider piece in black. Nothing too special but nice none the less.1 003 by Joker 789, on Flickr
It is cool because you can now play out classic arkham city/asylum game scenes like this one-
He has the usual back printing and reverse face. And he has the new moulded mask that i really like.1 004 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Here he is with his opposite, They are both nice but I like the glider better in black.
001 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Here he is with his non glider figure and the opposite colour glider batman.

Next we have Me, Yes the wounderful, Beautiful all round great Joker. And in my stylish new suit . I have taken a liking to the arkham suit as it is nicely
003 by Joker 789, on Flickr
It has my prision number on the back of 109370 (Arkhams set number with a 0 on the end), And the usual double sided face as seen on the previous joker.
005 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Close up of my number.

Here is me alongside non prisoner Joker and 2008 Joker.1 010 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Now I have some bad news. We have to move on to the waste of space known as robin . At least he is not as awful as before. He now has black legs, A black hood and a short cape, As seen on hobbit figures.
1 011 by Joker 789, on Flickr
He is evedently based on the Arkham games interpritation of robin-
He has the same back printing as before plus the same reverse head. Nothing else to say really.1 012 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Here he is with his equally awful predocessor, They are both a waste of space and I would destroy them both to get a nightwing.

Moving on to a nicer figure we see the fantastic scarecrow, Possibly my favorite new figure and certanly a marvel to look at. Like Joker he is superbly detailed.1 014 by Joker 789, on Flickr
I would like to give extra credit to the face design as it is absoloutely wounderful and could not be any better in my oppinion. 1 015 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Not only is his face detailed but so is the back of his head. He has wounderful stitch marks all around. And his back is detailed too.
1 016 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Though he looks even better with his old weapon-
1 017 by Joker 789, on Flickr
I tried using the face for an Arkham Asylum stlye scarecrow, What do you think?
1 018 by Joker 789, on Flickr
The face also works as a movie style figure mask-
1 019 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Moving on we have the lovely poison ivy, Though she is a carryover she is still as great as ever.
1 020 by Joker 789, on Flickr
She has the same back print and reverse head as before.
1 021 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Here she is with my custom Ivy made from leftover batman 2006 parts.
1 022 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Next we have a standard guard, He has left his bank job after the Two-Face incident and is now working at Arkham.
1 023 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Boooring! No back print or reverse head.
007 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Here he is with some other guards I made, I must admit I like the old guard body print better.
1 025 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Now we come onto the only Unique figure of the set, Dr Harleen Quinzel. She looks absoloutely perfect and very well detailed.
1 026 by Joker 789, on Flickr
She has full backprinting and a reverse head (Shown below)
1 027 by Joker 789, on Flickr
As i'm sure you know Harleen Quinzel is really..... Harley Quinn! We see here that her other face is her harley face. The set also comes with her jester hat for when she is out of duisguise.
008 by Joker 789, on Flickr
She has the same face print as harley from the funhouse, Dont they look great together .
1 029 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Interestingly the new hat has a glossy finish while the old one was rough and not shiny?
1 030 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Last but by no means least we have the Penguin, He is designed brilliantly and I fell instantly in love with the figure. He has the crafty expression you want on a figure. All the detailing is great and we get short legs in lilac! Horray
009 by Joker 789, on Flickr
He also has nice simple backprinting and no reverse head (As it would show behind the hat).
010 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Here he is with my custom penguin.
1 033 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Here we have all the vilians of the set together.
1 034 by Joker 789, on Flickr
And here are a few of the 2012/13 Batman vilians.

I hope you enjoyed reading the review as much as I enjoyed making it.
