Bandai Tamashii Nations is ever expanding the S.H. Figuarts reach, and that continues today with an expansion of their DC Comics line up. First it was Injustice, then Suicide Squad and now they’re going back to tackle Nolan’s The Dark Knight. The Dark Knight Batman is respected as a movie and the suit is one of most revered to date – functional, streamlined and damn cool looking. S.H. Figuarts is taking a crack at it now after many have been on market from other companies; but that gives them the ability to really focus in and get it right. And, based on our early in-hand time with it, they have. The figure is one of the best Batman offerings to date, in any form. It has a full range of articulation, detailed sculpt head to toe, complex paint and weathering even on a mostly black palette. Extra hands, head, and two weapons round the release out.
