A Kotobukiya Japanese import!

KotoBTASBatman7

Kotobukiya’s awesome 1/10th scale DC Comics collection has brought you New 52 heroes and villains, Classic Costume retro-inspired figures, and more, and now it expands into a whole new world with one of the most popular incarnations of the Dark Knight ever, BATMAN ANIMATED! That’s right, Batman: The Animated Series is the inspiration behind this new statue, and it perfectly recreates the Caped Crusader in the iconic Bruce Timm animated style. Batman is captured in a wide stance, ready to spring into action against the superstitious, cowardly lot if bad guys who call Gotham City home. Bruce Wayne has never looked better with his chunky proportions and bold costume, primarily gray and black with a bright yellow utility belt, black and yellow bat-symbol, and a cool blue shadow effect on the inside of his cape. Of course, all of the familiar bat elements are included like the scalloped cutouts on his cape, pointy cowl, and the blades on his forearms. Best of all, Batman comes with multiple interchangeable parts so you can customize your display with three different sets of eyes (normal, squinting, and “weak”), three facial expressions (open mouth, scowl, and clenched teeth), and three poses for the right hand (thumbs up, holding a batarang, or holding a grapnel gun)!

Sculpted by Keita Misonou, Batman Animated stands just under 7 ½ inches tall (1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base with perfect stability. He’s the perfect centerpiece for your Batman: The Animated Series collection and looks great alongside other Batman statues from Kotobukiya.

Available November 2016.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
