Batman the Animated Series - POISON IVY!

Batman the Animated Series #49 - Poison Ivy - DC Collectibles 2019

One of the biggest disappointments in my adult collecting life would have to be the release of the 2017 Batman the Animated Series GCPD Rogues Gallery 5-Pack. This deluxe set retailed for a prohibitive $175.00 and featured the final figure I needed for my personal favorites collection: BTAS Poison Ivy (and as an added insult:  $175 ÷ 5 = $35, which was noticeably more than the single release figures at the time). I almost caved a dozen times over the years and bought the whole set. And on eBay the single figures were almost always over 80 bucks. But I had faith that DC Collectibles would eventually re-release her in a single, or at the very least a Gotham Girls set. It took a little over two years, but I finally have her in my greedy little hands. And while this particular animated likeness isn't the strongest in the line (the face and hair from most angles seems a little off), it's still very good and I'm ecstatic to finally have her in my collection. Now I'm wishing for a Huntress in the JLA line! Let's check out Poison Ivy below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the BTAS Ivy and the TNBA Ivy together.

And the BTAS Gotham City Sirens together: Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.

And with BTAS Batgirl to round out the Gotham Girls.

Finally the entire Timm-verse Gotham ladies lineup. From Left to Right: BTAS Batgirl, BTAS Catwoman, BTAS Harley Quinn, BTAS Poison Ivy, TNBA Poison Ivy, TNBA Harley Quinn, TNBA Catwoman, and TNBA Batgirl.
