Japan’s Square Enix Play Arts Kai line of products decided to capitalize on the popularity of the upcoming Batman: Arkam City video game with a couple deluxe, finely-detailed action figures of both Batman and his nemesis, the Joker.
As Comics Alliance brought to our attention, these intricate and pretty awesome looking figures are selling for around $75 American on Square Enix’s Japanese site, and a bit cheaper on other online stores. The link in CA’s article didn’t quite work, so if you want to find the toys on Squre Enix’s site visit it and see if you can find them.
Honestly, if you’re remotely interested in action figures and Batman lore, you have to admit these look pretty impressive. The price tag may not be exorbitant for the extreme action figure collector, but for those of us who don’t routinely spend $60+ for figures these definitely seem rather pricey. If you have the money, though, and the interest, these are probably right up your alley.
