Oh, great – another Batman figure that I’m going to have to find space for. That is, if I can nab one.
This morning, Square Enix announced they would be bringing a limited edition Play Arts Kai Batman figure to San Diego Comic-Con based on his Arkham Origins design. The games and toymaker warned in the press release that there would only be 500 available on the show floor, with an additional 500 available through their SE Exclusives site (with those orders shipping sometime after August 11).
The 10.6-inch figure will also include extra sets of hands, a Batarang, and a grappling hook for the relatively wallet-friendly $99.99.
“Batman™: Arkham Origins depicts Batman when he first started on his path as a vigilante. We made sure to recreate the details of his youthful physique, its careful sculpting heighted by the metallic color variation. The chest area incorporates a flexible material, maintaining beautiful aesthetics and allowing for a wide range of motion. The cape is also articulated, which makes for great variation in poses, from flying through the night sky with his cape spread wide like wings, to a more dormant stance with his wings closed and stowed.
This limited color variant version, a 2014 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive, incorporates Batman’s iconic style with a metallic finish, heightening the contrast and drama of its design. We have brought this youthful version of Batman to life in glorious three dimensions, but also we have heightened the depth and beauty of its design with a multi-dimensional luminous shine, as if watching over Gotham in the moonlight.
Accessories include a Batarang and a gun. Display stand is included.”
