S.H. Figuarts Release New ‘Justice League’ Batman Figure
Article by Steve J. Ray S.H. Figuarts is a division of global toy giant Bandai, that specializes in creating superbly detailed, high quality, and extremely collectible action figures.
The company has already released a range of figures relating to everybody’s favorite Dark Knight. These include a Christian Bale Batman – from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy – and a mallet wielding Harley Quinn, amongst many others.
To tie in with the release of Justice League, S.H. Figuarts have announced a new Batman figure. This item is a truly impressive piece of work. The level of detail in the costume, and resemblance to Ben Affleck are exceptional.
Justice League Action Figure
On their website S.H. Figuarts describe their product as:
A new standard in action figures, representing the state of the art of Bandai’s design technology. Designed to perfectly mimic the range of motion of the human body. The series name is a contraction of the concepts of “Simple Style” and “Heroic Action.” Standing roughly 14cm tall, the highly posable SH Figuarts figures are designed to feel like little treasures.
It’s tough to argue with that description seeing a model of this quality. The figures aren’t cheap – retailing at around $50.00 – but are of a high standard, and available in limited quantities, justifying the price tag.
Now you too can own your very own handy, bendy Batfleck! And, boy is he bendy?!? You can place these figures in all manner of heroic poses, as the artwork above can attest.
I can see a lot of Batman enthusiasts giving pride of place to this excellent new action figure.
“George R.R. Martin Presents: Wild Cards: Now And Then” Writer: Carrie Vaughn Artist: Renae De Liz Inker and Color Artist: Ray Dillon Book Designer and Letterer: Thomas Napolitano Wild Cards: The Drawing of Cards excerpt written by Paul Cornell, penciled by Mike Hawthorne and Enid Balám, inked by Adriano De Benedetto and Lee Townsend, colored by Ruth Redmond, and lettered by VC’s Cory Petit Published by Bantam Books and Available from Penguin Random House Review by Steve J. Ray Wild Cards: Now And Then is a brand new graphic novel based in an alternate reality and shared universe co-created by George R.R. Martin, the man behind the now legendary Game Of Thrones TV show, and the books that inspired them. This alone makes this book intriguing, but the writing, art, colors, design, and lettering by the amazing creative team would still make this volume an essential purchase, whether Martin’s name appeared on the cover, or not. I’ve not played the game, or read any of the thirty-plus W
Interview panel led by Steve J. Ray, with a gathering of Comic/TV Media Journalists. I've spoken to some amazing people over the last couple of years; writers, artists, costume designers, and actors from some of my favorite TV shows. It's no secret that I'm a huge comic-book fan, and one of the TV series that's based on and inspired by a comics title - but has gone on to be so much more - is The Walking Dead . At a recent Comic-Con in London, I had the great opportunity of leading a panel where some fellow journalists and I spoke with Madison, Matthew and Macsen Lintz, three siblings who played Sophia and both iterations of Henry on the show. The eldest, Madison Lintz (born 1999) played Sophia Peletier - Carol's daughter - in the first two seasons. She's also well known for playing Maddie Bosch in the Amazon series Bosch . She started acting at the age of six, filming commercials and voice-overs. Matthew (born 2001) took over the role of Henry from
