When NECA first debuted their 7″ Michael Keaton Batman based on the 1990 video game (that was based on the 1989 movie) fans were told that the purple game deco was the only version NECA could do and we would not be getting a regular black version of the figure.
It looks like NECA was able to find a loophole in that deal and make an exclusive version that will come with the new Blu-Ray version of the 1989 movie coming in December. The figure will NOT be sold separately, it will only come with the Blu-Ray Diamond Luxe Edition.
Check out that great retro packaging that is a throwback to the 1990 Toy Biz movie Batman line. NECA sure knows where to poke the nostalgia pocket in our brains!
Here is the official post that was made today on the official NECA Facebook page:
“Gotham City. Always brings a smile to my face.” – The Joker
25 years later, the Caped Crusader continues to protect Gotham from crime and corruption. Don’t miss your chance to bring home the new Batman Diamond Luxe Blu-ray with limited edition #Batman action figure!
It appears that the quantities for preorder in the link able sold through and the listing was pulled down, but NECA just posted: “Listing will be back up shortly!”
Here was the description of the set that was on sale:
Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film that defined Batman for the modern generation — pick up the new Batman Diamond Luxe Blu-ray and get a bonus Batman action figure!
Made by NECA, Batman stands 7″ tall and features the likeness of Michael Keaton! The figure has over 25 points of articulation for great poses, plus removable cape, Batarang and Spear Gun accessories.
In 1989, director Tim Burton breathed new life into one of the most complex and intriguing characters in popular culture. Burton cast off the 1960s camp depiction of the Dark Knight and launched one of the most popular comic book film series ever. Tim Burton’s vision and Michael Keaton’s performance as the Caped Crusader combine perfectly to capture Gotham City’s sinister atmosphere and Batman’s brooding nature. Jack Nicholson stars in a memorable performance as the maniacal Joker and Kim Basinger is Vicki Vale, the beautiful and resourceful photojournalist desired by both men. Featuring songs by Prince and a score by Danny Elfman, Batman won the 1990 Oscar for Best Art Direction/Set Decoration. The new Diamond Luxe Two-Disc Edition includes brand-new bonus material: “Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster,” a look at the phenomenal marketing, extensive merchandising and franchise foresight that set the template for the next 25 years of tentpole pictures.
Items will be available to ship after 12/9/2014.
