That's hideous. I have no desire for it. I was expecting something much different when they did wooden figures.

from a merchandising perspective, the New 52 suit just doesn't translate well onto toys, especially toys relying on iconography like these. It always looks like there's a lot of compromise by the time they get to the final product.

It translates fine.

As for these wooden figures, the "classic" suits (Bats isn't wearing his "classic" either) wouldn't save them. It's the toy design, not the paint job that makes it so unwieldy and ugly.
