We’ve all waited for this Mafex Batman and it’s finally here!!
Well, most of you go this figure a while ago but mine just arrived a few days ago…
And even detective Conan would fanboy in front of the cape crusader like Judy here. Why wouldn’t he? Batman IS the best detective in the world. Please don’t kill me for saying that. I know Sherlock is the template of all detective heroes and there are so many Conan fans too but Batman solved universal threats too many times. And since Batman invents his gadgets, I am sure he can solve almost crime.
Ok, ok! Fine fine! It’s his prep time that makes Batman so capable. And yes, Batman died in the DCeased series when he was bitten by a zombie before he had prep time to solve the zombie pandemic. So without prep time, he would fall. But again, wouldn’t any other detective fall in such a case?
The great thing with the Batman figure is that unlike Superman, you can have him side to side with other non-super power beings, and it doesn’t look off. Superman is physically so capable that having him with other regular human characters will cast a shadow on them but Batman complements others instead. Having the Bat with the best negotiator Roger is quite exciting.
We can also have Batman disappointed seeing officials who are not so capable too.
Yes, it happened. They have a crossover for just a short period of time but it was awesome seeing red back to back with the Batman. Batman didn’t have many lines but the Hellboy crossover comic really respected the character. It is still one of my favorite crossover comics.
Like Spiderman, Batman can be flying around, flipping around, or punching and kicking on the ground. He is such a versatile character that whatever he does, he does it well. Hell, he can look menacing just by standing in the shadow. That’s who Batman is!
Spiderman isn’t a troll-like Deadpool but he can do something that gets on other people’s nerves from time to time. I think it’s his way to get closer and become friendlier with others.
Well, fxxx that. Batman doesn’t like to become friends with anyone.
This figure comes with two hands with the grappling gun and two grappling hooks. One short and one long.
If you have the DC Direct Batman Animated Series Bat Cave, it works perfectly with your Mafex Batman. Oh, did I mention? This figure comes with an unmasked Bruce Wayne’s head. There will be a black version of this Batman coming from Mafex next year but that one comes with a base instead.
And yes, they also cross over. And Batman single-handedly defeated all four turtles but that was expected. It was nice seeing Batman fighting with the Shredder in the “Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” animated film. Shredder was treated like a simple weekly villain most of the time in the early TMNT cartoon but that animated crossover showed how Shredder was capable.
Now, Batman on Gargoyle has been done so many times but if you are a comic book fan of Batman, you probably have seen the legendary statue from Randy Bowen somewhere. Well, that was like 30 years ago but his work has inspired many Batman on Gargoyle statues so you have seen works that were inspired by him somewhere. That statue was so striking that it left a great impact on me and I needed to do something similar here to express my love for that piece of art.
And here are a simple comparison between different version of Batman from different lines. It’s interesting that so many styles of Batman exists and it all works. That is also what proves how successful this character is. You can interpret him in many ways.
His proportion is great. Articulation is wonderful. You get a generous amount of accessories and his wired cape is awesome! We have been receiving so many different Batman from other brands but if you must pick one, I say this Mafex Batman is your holy grail. Well, I am talking in general of course. Mafex released the comic book The Dark Knight Returns version out and S.H.Figuarts and Mezco are releasing the legendary 89 Batman and they all look amazing. It is a good year for a Batman collector.
Hasbro Black Series Carbonite Han Solo. I say it’s a simple one since… It’s literally a solid piece of plastic brick lol.
