There are a multitude of Batman figures on the market to coincide with the launch of ‘The Dark Knight’, but to save you rummaging, here’s a run down of what’s available.
For the more discerning collector, the Batman Deluxe Figure (DC Direct), or the comparable Movie Masters Dark Knight from Mattel are a good choice. For a little more detail and gadgets, check out Mattel’s “Ultimate Action Figure Cape Batman”. If these figurines still aren’t detailed enough for you, you could always splash out on the incredible Movie Masterpiece figure (pictured) which comes complete with removable mask, and bares an unbelievable resemblance to Christian Bale underneath. It’s really only for the serious collector, as it will set you back a hefty £104!
For kids that just want to play, the action figures are the ideal choice. Available as Elasto Cuffs Batman, Grip Gear Batman, Ninja Training Bruce Wayne, Stealthwing Batman, Staff Strike Batman, or my personal favourite, Zipline Blaster Batman!
Look out for our run downs on Prop replicas, Joker toys, and (of course) the Batmobile toys. All to be blogged soon.
