When it comes to premium action figures I like to stay with one company and not mix lines or scales. S.H. Figuarts has been that company for me. But! There’s this one figure that’s been making the rounds from Mafex and that’s Batman from The Dark Knight Returns. I been hearing so much good things about this figure I had to get one myself and I wasn’t disappointed. This is my first Mafex figure and now they have a fan 4-Life.
This Batman, Dark Knight Returns is my second favorite adaptation of the character. There’s Batman 89 and then there’s DKR. This figure is everything I ever wanted in a Batman figure from DKR. He’s bulky, thick and just mean looking.
The articulation is very smooth and doesn’t break up or gap like some figures do. The cape is wired so you can get him in action poses. He comes with a handful of batarangs and different hands. You have so many options.
I highly recommend this figure if you’re a Dark Knight Returns fan.
