Figures Toy Company, which is making 8-inch, cloth-costumed figures in the Mego style of comic Batman and 1966 TV Batman (they’re the ones finally doing Egghead), just revealed their Scarecrow headsculpt. And it’s seriously scary-looking.

Maybe it’s just that Robot Chicken conditioned me to expect something more Super-Friendsy, but this looks like something Cillian Murphy could have busted out. They’re also doing Ra’s al Ghul, but whatever…great character, with a head that just looks like a caricature of a caveman-browed rich dude with weird mustache bits. Sure, it’s accurate enough, but it’s not like something I’d be terrified to have on my nightstand lest I wake up and find it looking my direction.
