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.

It's very rare that the worlds of geeks and music collide in a powerful way, but Professor Elemental has made that happen.
'School of Whimsy' sees Brighton's finest export solidify his career with his strongest album to date. Over a ten year journey Paul Alborough has helped create the phenomenon of Chap-Hop, a mix of hip hop and a tongue-in-cheek take on English gentry.
The character of Professor Elemental has allowed Paul to push the boundaries of his music, as well as allowing him to show the world his love of anything nerdy. His songs are littered with references to superheroes and comics, and have a huge underlying message of positivity.
Luckily, Fantastic Universes' resident music ninja Scott Hamilton managed to chat not only with Paul, but also with the crazy genius that is Professor Elemental. Here's part one where we talk to Paul about his musical career, his love of comics and what we can expect from the Professor in the future…
I make it no secret, readers, that I love two games more than the air I breathe. Dungeons and Dragons, and Magic: the Gathering. Despite being made by the same publishing company, Wizards of the Coast, they've made almost no crossed streams.
The talk of Wizards wanting to publish a new setting for their supplemental campaigns left many wondering where we can go. This is no mere Plane Shift - like those of Zendikar or Kaladesh, leaving us with races and statistics, and prompts on where to go. This is a full, world guide. And it's RAVNICA!
Next to nothing is known about this supplement. It appeared on Brazilian Amazon then later on an American version of the site. The product description features very accurate portrait of the Acumenopolis in the heart of every Magic player. All we can do is speculate.
As an avid player of both games, I have exceedingly high expectations for this supplement. It needs to deliver new races seen on Ravnica. Goblins of…
