Let’s get nuts. Tamashii has announced that Michael Keaton’s Batman (as he appears in The Flash) is the latest DC hero to join the S.H.Figuarts line of premium action figures.
Keaton’s Batman looks damn good. Even though the new outfit has much less yellow (the utility belt), there’s no mistaking this Caped Crusader from anywhere else than Tim Burton’s universe.
Oddly, Batman is very light on accessories. He comes with two batarangs but no grapnel gun. Expect to see a bunch of 3D print files show up to fill out Batman’s arsenal.
On top of a few interchangeable hands and a posable cape, Batman also comes with two different heads. One features Keaton’s entire face.
The unmasked Keaton face looks a bit weird, but the photos are said not to be from the final product. Hopefully, this gets sorted out before these expensive figures start shipping out.
Pre-orders for Batman started on July 3rd, and the expected ship date is November 2023. The Dark Knight is listed as being 8,800 Yen, which is roughly $62. However, most S.H.Figuarts toys typically get priced around $80-$90 when they arrive in hobby stores.
For example, this figure is over at the Big Bad Toy Store for $83.99.
Keaton’s Batman S.H.Figuarts figure will come with the following:
• Interchangeable unmasked head
• Interchangeable collar parts
• 4 pairs of interchangeable hands
・ Batarang x 2
・ Prop for cloak x 2
After building multiple Bandai Batmobile models, I’d love to see the company make 1:12 scale vehicle model kits for S.H.Figuarts. I’d gladly pay $150+ for a to-scale ’89 Batmobile that could fit this Batman.
What do you think of Keaton’s return? Let us know in the comments section below.[Source: Tamashii]
