Like that suit design for Batman, even if the thighs look bulky.

That is a great looking Batman figure. I am most likely picking this one up when it's released. given that there's no quality issues like the Simon Baz GL they released this week.
I didn't care for the Arkham City or Arkham Asylum figures but this one is very promising.

How can Bats look so good and Black Mask look so bad? Maybe the figure is not final. Also did every one see they are releasing another Arkham Asylum Bane? Can't believe a toy company noticed that fans were getting screwed on the secondary market and decided to help out. I am sure Matty won't mind the sales, but as an added bonus they can make the fans happy.

I wish they would re-release the Knightfall Bane while they are at it. Talk about getting screwed on the secondary market. I will probably end up picking up this release just because it will be easier to come by and cheaper. I really just want a traditional looking Bane though.

And what quality issues are there with Simon Baz? Mine is due to arrive sometime today and you have me worried.

Now this is what I am talking about! An all-new, articulated & huge Bane. I don't even mind buying another Batman, especially since its an all black (no blue cape) repaint!

You would think a traditional comic Bane would have come out last year with the movie. I am hopping Bane will show up in the Unlimited line. I also think it would be cool to get an old man Bruce to go with Batman Beyond as well as an Animated Series Batman.

It looks to me like Black Mask's suit has the pinstripes carved into it which I think is a terrible decision if that is the case. The should just be painted on, because the actual fabric wouldn't be an indentation. It also looks far too shiny and plastic. It's a nice sculpt other than that though, and Batman looks great!

$25 seems fair in today's market (weeping as I type this), where Mattel figures are pushing around $20 for mass-market (non-collector market) quality. I know Marvel Selects just went to $25 too, and their bases have been reduced to smaller accessories than in the past in most cases. It really makes Marvel Legends at $15 seem like the greatest deal around.

Unless the suit is supposed to be corduroy! :lol:

I like the look of these even though I'm going to be crying about the price.

Joker reminds me of a sadistic Bowie. Bane looks good, but man he let him self go in Arkham.
