Square Enix has sent out images and info for their upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Superman Play Arts Kai Figure. It seems they are creating a whole new figure as opposed to repainting the Man of Steel Superman they released in 2013. Here’s the info:
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts the clash of two iconic heroes in the DC Comics universe. Now SUPERMAN joins the fray as a Play Arts KAI action figure!
SUPERMAN has established himself as a shining beacon of hope for humanity. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he faces off against BATMAN, the dark hero of the DC Comics universe.
Square Enix has highlighted the noble, classically heroic characteristics of SUPERMAN, in striking contrast with BATMAN’s complex dark aspect. The chest and cape utilize flexible materials, creating a wide range of motion. SUPERMAN’s iconic take-off and landing poses are easily recreated. Square Enix has paid special attention to the fine details, keeping close accuracy to the design of the character in the film, such as the small Kryptonian insignia etched into the waist of his suit. The finishing touches are his accessories, including expressive interchangeable hands, and a face piece that features his powerful heat vision. All this and more make this figure a superb depiction of SUPERMAN.
Figure also includes display stand and interchangeable hand parts.
Pre-orders are live now at Big Bad Toy Store for the figure. It’s listed at $149.99 with a release in June. You can see the new photos by reading on.
