Batman. Ninja. Before this dropped I had no idea that these two words should go together. Now they must. The anime that dropped earlier this year was a crazy alt-verse ride, sending Batman and his family back in time to Feudal Japan along with Gotham’s villains. We get ninjas, samurais, sword fighting, huge army battles, giant mecha robots and more. The anime and it’s translation is not for everyone, but the visuals from it are pretty damn cool. Enter these S.H. Figuarts Batman Ninja Joker and Batman figures. They are high end, well executed versions of classic characters that can stand on any shelf regardless of connection to the movie, giving us a little spice. Each are layered with tons of sculpt and detailed paint, come with a sword / sheath, extra heads and accessories. Batman’s cape is removeable, as is Joker’s coat. Articulation is wide ranging, hitting all major points. Batman is a little restricted with the cape though, and it takes up a lot of back-space when in dynamic poses.
All in all they are fun, alternative takes on these characters that have been done countless times. As figures, they are a blast to pose and mess around with. Both are out now in Japan and US retailers. Read on to check out over 90 HD images showing what they can do!
