I must admit Arkham Asylum’s Armored Batman did look much better in the game. Most probably due to the art direction in the game. For this sculpt, there isn’t much difference between Armored Batman and the normal Bats. Armored Batman is just a bit bigger and bulkier. Still a nice sculpt of Batman to pose though.

Arkham Asylum’s Joker was awesome in the game and this sculpt is just as good. I was a bit worried that his joints may be loose as the figure’s hands and legs are pretty thin, but all was good. The figure lined up well with Arkham Asylum Batman.

Arkham Asylum Harkey Quinn. One of the better renditions of the character. The figure was well sculpted and made.

Arkham Asylum, one of the best Batman games out there, has one of the better renditions of Batman as well. Play Arts Kai has outdone themselves with a great sculpt of the Dark Knight. The paint job and detailing are top notch. There has been some reports of loose joints, but my figure had sturdy joints and posing Bats was not a problem.

DC’s finally launching figures in the 3.75″ inch scale! Even though the line has been announced as convention exclusives, DC has said there is hope for the 3.75″ inch scale to go mass retail.

Kyle Rayner and Kilowog are two great characters to start of the new line. Their paint jobs are very good, though the articulation still has some way to go before it meets the standard of Marvel Universe figures, it still allows decent poses and playtime. I’m crossing my fingers and hope to see Supes and Bats in the line soon!

The holy grail for many collectors, Hot Toy’s 1/6 scale Superman modeled after Christopher Reeve’s portrayal of the Man of Steel. This sculpt is one of the best from Hot Toys. An awesome figure.

It’s been a week since STGCC and the one thing that’s still vivid in my mind is Hot Toy’s booth. Hot Toys was the highlight of STGCC for me. They brought down their concept booth they debuted at the Hong Kong Con as well as some exclusives for 1/6 Scale collectors. What a privilege. continue reading..

No Batman should be without his nemesis, and Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of the Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman was out of this world. Hot Toys latest preview pictures of the iconic character is looking real good. Notice that Batman is DX09 and Joker is DX08…… the movie was made in 1989. Getit?  continue reading..

Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989 paved the way for Superhero films in the past few decades. I still remember watching Michael Keaton on screen as Batman and being amazed at the Dark Knight on screen. Hot Toy’s has teased their new series of 1/6 scale figures based on the movie for the past few weeks since SDCC 2011 and finally we have official preview pictures of Batman. continue reading..
