IKEMEN series is a design that turns American comics characters into a Japanese manga style “ike-man” (handsome guy) appearance.
This figure is sculpted from the concept art of Ricken, who is active in drawing DC COMICS illustrations.
This time Bruce Wayne the Batman joins as the vol.5 lineup in this series! The appearance of the Dark Knight who leads Robin to protect the Gotham City, is faithfully recreated by the sculpture of his strong and muscular body, his standing pose and the facial expression which shows the Dark Knight’s unbreakable iron will.
By using the alternative head part, you can recreate the familiar masked Batman.
Furthermore, a “Smiling ver.” head part is included in the First Press product! You can recreate a different Bruce Wayne that he is smiling.
