Sideshow Collectibles has just put up the classic comic book version Batman that they teased when they announced the 1/6 scale comic book Catwoman last month. So far I’ve managed to resist her and the really awesome looking 1/6 scale Joker, but as more of these comic book figures get revealed my resolve weakens. Bats comes with long-eared and short-eared heads, interchangeable expressions, and a bunch of hands and weapons. The Sideshow exclusive version of Batman, for the same $199.99 price, also comes with a battle-damaged head.
And there’s also a tease of an upcoming figure in Sideshow’s pics – you may see a streak of a red cape in one of the shots. Guess it’s a good thing that Bats also comes with a Kryptonite ring. Could Superman be announced as early as next month?

“I am the night – I am Batman!”
Shine the signal, and the protector of Gotham City will emerge from the shadows to fight crime and bring justice. Sideshow Collectibles is proud to debut the highly-anticipated first hero in our DC Sixth Scale collection, Batman!
Bruce Wayne springs into action as his famed alter ego. Disguised in a hand-tailored blue and grey fabric Batsuit and cape, he is crafted with meticulous attention to detail on a fully articulated muscular new body design. Inspired by a number of timeless comic book appearances, the Batman Sixth Scale Figure invites collectors to further define their favorite look for the Dark Knight with short and long-eared mask options, and two no-nonsense facial expressions able to strike fear into the hearts of his enemies. Equipped with a variety of hi-tech ‘Bat’-prefixed gadgets, utility belt and grapple hook gun, the Caped Crusader is always one step ahead of his foes… and for times of true crisis he keeps a powerful gift from his closest friend nearby in the form of a green Kryptonite ring.
The Batman Sixth Scale Figure is the ultimate must-have for fans of the hero, the legend, the Batman!
