Sweet! How old are you? Are you moving out for uni or just into a flat or whatever to leave your parents' house?

23, moving into a flat with a friend.
I’ve been dying to move out since returning from uni, feel like I can finally start my life!

The Batman is from Arkham Knight but Deathstroke is from Arkham Origins.

The line itself is 7 inch scale which is the Mcfarlane standard for their lines now so they'll fit in well with their other stuff but not say Marvel Legends which is 6 inch and Doctor Who which is 5.5 inch. The first couple waves seemed rushed but now McF seems to really be hitting their stride with these figures with fantastic sculpt and paintwork and they're pulling from every aspect of the DC multiverse from movies, animated, comics, TV and games.

We're still so early into the line as well so I can't wait to see where they go with the DC licence next.

So would it be in scale with the previous Arkham figures that were released for the games?

Hard to say because the scale for those figures changed slightly as time went on also some of the scaling for the McF figures in the earlier waves was a bit wonky (Arkham Joker is about as tall as Batman despite the card he comes with detailing him as being shorter). I'd imagine you could fudge them together with some posing.

The Mcf Arkham Asylum Batman is a tad taller than the DC Direct version.

Got three books in the post from my friend who is an author. I've already read some but they were rereleased with new cover design, so, helping the cause :) The author's name is David Petrie, and the books are in the Pixel Dust series, which you can buy on Amazon. So far, the books are:

1. Party Hard
2. The Pyramid Game
3. Auction of Souls

Very highly recommended!
