Bandai Collectibles are offering their S.H. Figuarts The Batman figure inspired from the 2022 film, with an all-new batsuit and starring Robert Pattinson as Batman. The Batman saw incredible success at the box office and has become an instant fan-favorite film. If you haven’t seen it, make sure to watch it! This figure is one of the high-end collectibles being offered from the film, with all of the S.H. Figuarts articulation that you won’t see on a lower priced figure. The Batman includes two head sculpts, 6 sets of hands, interchangeable chest piece, batarang, 2 grapnel launchers, handcuffs and an Adrenaline pen.
Thank you to Bandai Collectibles for sending along their S.H. Figuarts The Batman Figure for review.
Availability: December 2022
The Batman is packaged in the standard S.H. Figuarts window box, with artwork and images of the figure on the front, sides and back. He comes packaged in a plastic tray along with his accessories, with a sheet of instructions hidden behind the cardboard backdrop inside.
The Batman is given a brand new batsuit for this new take on Batman, with nicely done sculpted grooves, textures and patterns, along with a utility belt with non-removable accessories. The figure also features a wired cape for posable display, and grapnel launchers that are swapped out for the parts on the inside of the forearm to place the grapnel launchers on, along with the hand used to hold it.
Both head sculpts look great and each represent a great likeness to actor Robert Pattinson. The unmasked head sculpt features the black wash around his eyes, along with sculpted hair. Swapping out the heads is actually quite difficult at least one this particular sample, as the neck also comes off and that is hard to pull off.
The 6 sets of hands are used for different functions, such as closed fist, open grab, and some are used to hold the accessories such as the batarang, grapnel launcher, and the Adrenaline pen as shown in the pictures.
The figure is primarily in black, with some dark grey and metallic silver details, such as on the utility belt, gauntlets and buckles. The paint applications on him look great, especially the paint on the face and metallic silver on the body.
The articulation is standard for the line, including a ball jointed neck, ball jointed head, ball jointed torso x 2, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles.
Overall, The Batman is a great looking figure and comes with some nicely done interchangeable parts. This is a great offering with superb movie likeness, so make sure to pick him up, including at one of stores listed below:
