DC Collectibles: Giving the Gift of Barbara Gordon

DC Collectibles: Giving the Gift of Barbara Gordon

By Tim Beedle Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Whether it’s in the pages of Batman, Detective Comics, Birds of Prey or her own acclaimed ongoing, Barbara Gordon is Batgirl. But DC readers know that Batgirl is only one of the heroic identities assumed by Commissioner Gordon’s strong-willed daughter. Once, after a run-in with the Joker left her paralyzed, Barbara Gordon adopted the role of Oracle, a brilliant hacker and strategist who aided the Dark Knight, his team of crimefighters and even the Justice League.

While Batgirl is one of the most popular heroines within the DC Universe, Oracle is one of the most unique and inspiring. Therefore, it’s pretty great to see both characters brought to detailed life by DC Collectibles in the same must-have Batman: Arkham Knight two-pack.

Batgirl is fully articulated, comes with a Batarang and some extra hands, and looks ready to bust out some serious combo moves. Oracle, on the other hand, is dressed casually, seated in a working wheelchair and comes with a set of removable accessories.

Whether you’ve played Arkham Knight or not, if you or a loved one is a Batman or Batgirl fan, this two-pack is really worth a look. Oracle action figures are rare, and this intricately sculpted take on her is an absolute standout. It can add some depth and diversity to your action figure collection, and packaged alongside Batgirl, it serves as a potent reminder of the sacrifice that sometimes comes along with being a hero as well as what you can accomplish if you never give up.

The BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT BATGIRL & ORACLE ACTION FIGURE TWO-PACK is now available at your favorite comic shop, specialty store or online retailer.
