Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts The Dark Knight Batman figure, based on Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed motion picture starring Christian Bale as Batman, is being teased ahead of its pre-order period.
The S.H. Figuarts Dark Knight features all the usual accompaniments you’d expect from a Tamashii Nations figure–switch-out portrait, interchangeable hands, grapple gun and batarang accessories–but this time a fabric cape is included with the figure. The use of fabric is a departure from the articulated plastic capes we’re used to seeing in the Figuarts line and could indicate a change in design philosophy from the Japan toymaker. The question is what will collectors think of the use of fabric?
Look for pre-order for the S.H. Figuarts Dark Knight to open up soon.
