Awesome Toy Picks: Justice League NEW 52 Batman Action Figure

A cool collectible you'll want to add to your collection.

Each week we take a close look at a cool comic book collectible that you'll want to add to your personal collection. This week we're looking at Batman once again. There have been many Batman action figures over the years but with the New 52, he has a slightly different look. DC Collectibles has a new line of Justice League figures and the first to go on sale is Batman (you can order the figure here if you can't find him in your local comic shop).

The box is simple but has an elegant look to it. You'll immediately recognize the Justice League logo and the the design has the same peel away effect fro the new logo. He looks good but the real question is what is he like outside of the box?

== TEASER ==

The first thing you'll notice as soon as you get him out is how solid he is. This is a heavy and sturdy figure. I've actually had a figure break before while trying to position it to take some pictures. This one isn't going to break unless you get really rough with it.

This figure is almost simple in design. I mean that in a good way. Because we've seen so many Batman action figures, we don't really need any bells or whistles with him. He's a great looking figure and that's what you're going to want in this new Justice League line.

He comes with a stand but doesn't need it to be put on display. His feet will hold him up and the cape also helps to prevent him from falling over. He doesn't have as much articulation as the past DC figures but I actually prefer it this way. I've always felt too much articulation takes away from the actual design of the character. Sometimes it felt like articulation was added to just to add more. It became awkward and it would just disrupt the look of the figure.

I do like the way this figure looks and stands. I believe Aquaman is the next figure being released. Thankfully they're not all coming out at once. That could be a little hard on the wallet. They will definitely look good next to each other.

Update

What's the deal with that stand? It turns out because I got mine directly from DC in a press mailing, I got the stand. I apologize for any confusion or frustration for those that bought this already and have been wondering where your stand is. At least he doesn't need one to stand on his own!

I like that one right there. The shot of him with clenched fists staring out at the skyline below is the best! :)

Cool.

I think these figurings are a little too expensive. I dunno, for me personally, I don't wanna spend that kinda money on figurings.

I'm waiting on the Superman figure to be released. It just sucks that I have to wait till NEXT YEAR!!!

Posted by therafalee

Wow, he looks so great i would love to fill my Drawing office with thoose figures but i'm poor.

Posted by longbowhunter

I saw this figure the other day at the comic shop. While I'm not the biggest fan of this costume design I still kinda want the figure. If it had been based off of Greg Capullo's art instead of Jim Lee's it would be an instant buy for me.

I like this figure alot. I got it when it first came out. I am not going to buy everybody. I have become very selective about collectibles. Comics are expensive enough as it is. I have already cut back in my pull list. Action Figures are a luxury. Statues and busts are a real luxury. They keep piling on with collectibles and stuff. Sometimes I wish they would pull back a little bit. I have to really want it for me to get it. The Batman is worth it. I will get the Aquaman, Superman, Wonder Woman and maybe the Cyborg. Not sold on the GL and Flash.

I really want to buy this but a little put off by that it does not come with a stand. I've read a few reviews and they say thats it don't but there it does. What is to be ?

Because adding all those different lines to Batman's armor makes him look so much cooler.

Im sure we all have better understanding of those two subjects than Jim Lee and the others people who helped "redesign" those costumes at the moment.
