If you liked Square Enix’s recent DC Comics line of PLAY ARTS Kai figures, then you’re going to love their newly announced San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, a black metallic version of their The Dark Knight Rises Batman figure.
Limited to a run of 1,000 pieces, this exclusive 10″ figure will set you back $64.99 and comes with a window box display case, alternate hands, weapons, display stand and hockey pads (they don’t fit). Okay, I was lying about that last one, but can you just imagine?
Those who have a preternatural aversion to long lines can pre-order the figure at Square Enix’s newly refurbished online store while supplies last. Just take note: if you pre-order, they won’t be available for pickup at SDCC; they’ll be shipped straight to your house on July 17th, so just sit back, relax and have Alfred make you another platter of Smuckers Uncrustables (which is what I imagine Bruce Wayne eats).
I don’t know about you guys, but the brushed metal look makes Gotham’s Dark Knight look damn good. You know how when they show a hamburger on a fast food commercial with all the ingredients falling into place, the burger just looks like the tastiest thing you’ve ever seen? This is kind of how I feel about this metallic variant. Alas, if only we were billionaires like Bruce Wayne, our pre-con budgeting would be way easier. Now feast your eyes on the hand-sculpted glory of the Goddamn Batman and start thinking about which of Gotham’s many financial institutions you’ll need to knock over to come out of Comic-Con in the black.
