“Batman™ Arkham Knight Batmobile ($85)
In the video game, Batman™ battles all-new threats in Gotham City with the help of an arsenal-equipped vehicle. This Batman™: Arkham Knight Batmobilefeatures premium, highly-detailed deco and authentic sounds straight from the game, and much more! The tires can do a complete 360-degree spin, allowing the vehicle to turn on a dime… very handy for pursuing villains. When the top of the vehicle is pressed downward the firepower is revealed: on the left side, a riot suppressor rubber bullet gun, and on the right side, a high-powered Gatling gun, both with sounds and light effects – straight from the game! Hold the activation button longer than three seconds to create a red glow, simulating heat transferring, and press the rear button to turn on the headlights and play the game’s iconic Bat-swarm sound effect. There are also controls to rev the engine, to see the exhaust light up, and for the sound of the cannon. The vehicle comes with an articulated DC Comics™ Multiverse Arkham City Batman™ figure with a fabric cape allowing Batman™ to sit in the driver’s seat!

“Diamond Select Toys has announced a line of deluxe Marvel Retro 8″ figures that will reproduce (and add to) those classic figures, starting with the Amazing Spider-Man!”
From the desk of Dravenheart:
“This is a variation of Batman I’ve wanted to do for a while, but I always hated that he was pretty much the same size as the Hulk. The story was good, but the look just didn’t make any sense to me. However, in Batman: Arkham City, one of the alternate skins is Dark Knight Returns, and they really slimmed him up. He’s still big, but not huge. I liked how it looked, so I jumped on that variation. The only problem I hit was finding a cape and head appropriately sized, but that came together thanks to Young Justice Batman.
Champion worked great since his belt could be repainted directly into Batman’s utility belt. I cut the gauntlet blades off of a 90s Animated Batman, glued them to the body, then sculpted around them. A full repaint from there, and that pretty much finished him off. I did have a different head option, but I completely forgot to paint it up, so instead of giving it more time, I just went ahead and popped the head from Young Justice Batman on him, and figure I’ll use the other head if I remake him with the yellow emblem.”
