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.
SUBMITTED FOR YOUR APPROVAL… The Twilight Zone , a television series that shows no signs of letting up, is still going strong 60 years since it first debuted on CBS in 1959. Created by the already popular writer Rod Serling, the show became a series with an infinite lifespan. The Twilight Zone is now 60 years young and still has a massive appeal to those who love a bit of twisted, comedic, moralistic and, at times horrifying, science fiction. I have been a fan of this show for many years, from the original to the latest version by Jordan Peele. It was probably in the 1980’s that I first came across this show and I was amazed. Back then, just a teenager, I thought black and white shows were old and ‘fuddy duddy’ (as my kids would say nowadays). That was until my late mam (who was always there when I found my love for various things as a youngster) turned on the tv and an episode of the TZ was showing. I always remember the first episode I saw being "Ti
Article by Paul 'Professor Elemental' Alborough When DC comics laid off so many of their staff the other day, I was devastated*. Another little piece of joy taken away, more fantastic creative people losing their jobs, another big conglomerate stripping creativity for parts then crushing the scrap, and a much reduced chance that my proposed ‘Ambush Bug VS Plastic Man’ crossover mini-series script would ever be approved. It goes without saying, but 2020 is as bad as the Marvel Swimsuit comics from the early 1990s. That’s bad. Social media being what it is, (that is to say a huge purple monster, hell bent on sucking the joy out of life, spreading division and destroying Metropolis,) has given DC comics a bit of a kicking over the last decade or so. Never quite seen to be as hip and cool as Marvel, DC rebooted with their "Rebirth" in 2016, which saw the original comic book line return to its roots. Many said this was just a cynical ploy to shore up its fanbase, and cla
