The Dark Knight’s Last Stand Is The Next Dynamic 8ction Figure

Beast Kingdom

Everyone appears to be making a Dark Knight Returns Armored Batman figure these days. Seriously. I’ve seen multiple versions of Batman’s last stand against Superman on the shelves over the past year. And here’s another one!

This time we’re departing from the standard retail world and jumping into the real collector’s market. Beast Kingdom is expanding the Dynamic 8action Heroes line with another Batman. This time, as he appeared in the climax of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. Superheroes have been outlawed. Nuclear war is at hand. And Superman is the tool of a trigger-happy government. Only one man can stand up to the big blue boy scout, and that’s an aging Bruce Wayne in a high-tech suit of armor. Oh, and with a bit of help of a one-armed Green Arrow.

Batman will stand 21cm tall and comes with a healthy array of accessories, including the Kryptonite arrow. The jumpsuit and cape are made of fabric. Batman has three interchangeable heads: one helmet with light-up eyes, a damaged helmet, and an unmasked Bruce Wayne. The Armored Dark Knight is $113.99 direct from Beast Kingdom.

The DAH (Dynamic 8action Heroes) range is back with a bang with the release of the ‘Armored Batman’ from the Dark Knight Returns. The suit, which was built to protect an older Batman is a perfect fit for the DAH design of highly articulable action figures. Batman’s strong body is complimented by the modular-like armor that sits on top. The set includes three exclusive head sculpts, a full helmet, a partially damaged helmet, and a full Bruce Wayne head. Multiple replacement hands as well as a collection of weapons, including a pulse gun and special effects complete the set.

Batman will come with the following:

  • DAH design action figure, with around 20 points of articulation
  • One Bruce Wayne head sculpt (Usable with DAH-043, 044DX Batman)
  • Two (2) replaceable head sculpts with mask (Fully covered, damaged)
  • Three (3) pairs of replaceable hands (Fist, open, gripping)
  • Accessories: Palm shocker + special effects add-ons, special effects, bow + kryptonite gas effects
  •  Street lamp prop
  • Suit and cloak made of real cloth
  • Special, branded base with bracket

There’s no Frank Miller version of Superman yet to pair with Beast Kingdom’s Dark Knight, but I’m sure he’s on the way. In the meantime, you can pick up the company’s other versions of The Dark Knight and Robin by clicking here.

What do you think about this premium Armored Batman figure? Worth the money, or is it better off staying with the various McFarlane versions? Let us know in the comments section below.
