SDCC 2012: Square-Enix DC Movie Play Arts Kai

Batman has always been a popular franchise, but the Nolan movies have really skyrocketed them to success in the figure world. Even companies that work almost exclusively on Japanese titles, like Square-Enix, are getting involved! They’ve done Play Arts Kai based on the Arkham Asylum/City game designs before, but now it’s time for some The Dark Knight Rises figures! I think generally faces are a weak point on action figures, but thankfully most of the designs include masks of some type so they don’t detract from the overall look. So far Bane and Batman are sculpted, with a Catwoman on the way: Bane in particular looks awesome! I’d like to get one and have him terrorize all my other figures. “I’m PVC’s reckoning!”
