The Square Enix Playarts Kai Batman Timeless Steampunk DC comics Variant (that’s quite a mouthful, trust the Japanese to come up with such an awesome sounding name) is up for pre-orders now!
Ever since we spied the unpainted prototypes of this masterpiece, we had been keenly awaiting its release!
Check out those mind-blowing details on this steamunk rendition of the dark knight. PlayArts has really upped their game with this one, we feel.
Fine sculpting and paintwork, as well as careful consideration of the materials used, elevate the unique texture of steam-powered technology’s functional beauty. This figure has a dignified, almost classical aura, emphasized by a five-layer structure of the cape which hearkens back to designs by da Vinci. The technical machinery would not be out of place in an 1890’s Batcave, and the gaslamp atmosphere evoked by the design is a perfect match for the Dark Knight.
For any batman fan, who is sick of countless similar action figures of the Dark Knight, this masterpiece promises a unique twist that is extremely well executed.
We expect this to run out fast.. so PO while you guys can.
