batman sketch figure top

This looks like a sketch done with pencil and paper, but what you’re looking at is a figure that will be available at this year’s SDCC for $40. It’s part of the Designer Series of figures which bases action figures on the style of a particular artist.

This one is based on Batman: Hush artist Jim Lee. It will measure 7″ tall and comes in a box with a sketch done by Lee. There will also be a pricier $300 limited edition of only 150 pieces that will have original Lee artwork.

Mezco’s 6.5” tall Dark Knight Returns Batman figure is getting an upgrade for this year’s SDCC. They’re recreating the fight scene between Batman and the Mutant Leader with a new boxed set. The Mutant Leader gets several hands and fists to hold a crowbar and an accessory of Batman’s Knock Out foam that slips over his face.

Batman comes battled damaged with bloodied gauntlets, a tattered batsuit and a beaten up face. There’s also a junkard base for you to pose the characters and set the scene. The boxed set will be available at SDCC with online preorders starting today in limited quantities.

DC

The Joker design above comes from Greg Capullo’s amazing work on Death of the Family. Special effects master Rick Baker has put his own spin on the character and the results are amazing. This is the Joker look we’d all like to see on screen but, sadly, it doesn’t seem like we’re going to get that with Leto.

See Baker’s version after the break…

arkham knight

The Play Arts series of figures is simply outstanding, and Square Enix is on top of their game with this 11″ Batman Arkham Knight figure.

From the “A” emblazoned on his chest to the translucent visor, Square Enix went for attention to detail. The figure has two interchangeable helmet pieces, a sniper rifle, two handguns, three interchangeable hands and a figure stand.

dc meets thomas

I’m doubly amused about this because Thomas the Tank Engine is featured in an add for Marvel’s Ant-Man at the moment, but this SDCC Exclusive Thomas & Friends Super Friends Minis DC mashup set is wild.

I dunno, what do you think?

Square Enix is adding to their already amazing Play Arts Kai Action Figure line with a Marvel Universe Spider-Man and both Harley Quinn and Robin from Batman: Arkham Knight.

Of the three, I like Robin best, but they’re all pretty frickin’ fantastic. The detail is, as always, stellar and the poseability and additional accessories seem to be worth shelling out the extra cash for.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

Hot Toys has revealed a special two-figure set that features Batman and Bruce Wayne as seen in the Tim Burton movies featuring Michael Keaton.

In the second installment of the Batman series directed by Tim Burton, Michael Keaton reprised the role of the caped crusader to protect Gotham City again from a terrible fate. His amazing portrayal of the iconic character in this darker take on the superhero set the high standard for the future appearances of the dark knight on the silver screen!

Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are very excited to present the much-anticipated Batman Sixth Scale collectible figure from the classic and fan favorite film Batman Returns!

The movie-accurate Batman figure is specially crafted based on the image of Michael Keaton as Batman and features a newly developed masked head sculpt with separate rolling eyeballs and interchangeable lower faces, a specially crafted Batsuit, detailed Batman gadgets, and LED light-up figure base.

Separate rolling eyeball action! Yes!

In case you missed the news over the weekend, Frank Miller is making his return to Batman with a third series to round out a trilogy that started with the classic The Dark Knight Returns. The new series will be titled The Dark Knight: The Master Race.

The series will be co-written by Brian Azzarello. “Artists for the project have yet to be announced”.

After the disaster of The Dark Knight Strikes Again back in 2001, it’s probably safe to say that many fans weren’t clamoring for another sequel. However, with Miller’s influence currently being felt in the Daredevil series on Netflix and the upcoming Batman v Superman, the timing seems right.

Check out the press release after the break along with a tweet from Frank Miller that marks the occasion. It’s his first tweet in five years.
