The Dark Knight Rises Archive

At NYCC, Square-Enix had a whole lot of Batman merchandise on hand, and of course large handful of it was from the Dark Knight Trilogy. Their Bane, which was unpainted then, is now painted–though his texture looks a little sandpaper-y. We’ve also got Bats himself, Catwoman Anne Hathaway style, and the ubiquitous Joker. It’s odd how much the quality varies: Catwoman looks a little… lumpy, while the Joker is perfectly executed and Batman is rather in-between. Check them all out in the gallery!

Square-Enix’s Play Arts Kai line of action figures used to be limited to only their own licenses. In fact, it was pretty much only Final Fantasy characters! Well, it’s changed a lot in the past few years, and one of their biggest new franchise they’ve managed to snag is Batman–both based on the Nolan movies and the Arkham Asylum/Arkham City games. From the movies they have The Dark Knight Rises Batman, Bane and Catwoman. While I’m not usually a fan of the faces on Play-Arts Kai, I think these ones have turned out quite nice! I especially like Catwoman. I was looking forward to her since the announcement at SDCC, and I’m glad she turned out looking so good. There’s also the Joker from The Dark Knight.
From Arkham City we have Batman, Harley Quinn, Robin, and Catwoman. Funnily enough, Robin was painted at SDCC, but they brought the unpainted prototype to this event. They didn’t have the Joker on hand, or any new announcements. I wonder if they’ll be making any other game design Batman 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!”

Hot Toys sure does love Batman, and they’ve already announced 1/6 scale action figures of Batman and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. Unsurprisingly, the next character they are working on is the cat burglar, Selina Kyle! It seems like she’ll also come with the Batbike, along with the company’s usual attention to detail. Though we only have a small glimpse of the outfit, she looks amazing!

Back at Toy Fair, we got to take an up-close-and-personal look at Kotobukiya’s newest Batman statue–and I was in love! The uncolored sculpt was simply amazing, with tons of motion and some incredibly sharp details. I was really looking forward to seeing him colored, and while it took a few months it was definitely a worthwhile wait! The black is rich and deep, and they managed to keep all of the details highlighted with what amounts to a pretty monochromatic color scheme. He also comes with some swappable accessories: you can display him holding a grapple gun or an EMP rifle. There’s even a light-up bat signal on the base! He’ll be released in November, and while I am usually not really a huge statue-lover I am most definitely looking forward to this one.

Kotobukiya has made quite a few Batman figures in the past, but I think none of them really compare to the newest addition to the line: The Dark Knight Rises Batman ArtFX! The sculpting here is so detailed, and while the pose might be a bit unusual I think it really works. The flowing cape, the detailing on the suit: it’s so awesome! The base in the final version will also light up.
We’ll have a larger gallery of this figure later in the week, along with several other statues!
