Mezco has shared some new high res pics of their One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman, including an “x-ray” shot that shows just how super-articulated the figure is underneath that black and gray (or dark blue and gray, for the Mezco exclusive) batsuit. This figure has been at the top of my most wanted list since Mezco introduced the One:12 Collective line at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
I’m still a tiny bit skeptical about clothing apps on a 1/12 scale figure, but as we get more looks at Batman, the more convinced I become that Mezco is going to make it work. It’s easy to see that a cloth cape adds dynamism to what you can achieve with your poses – that’s why many customizers fashion a cloth replacement for their figures’ plastic capes. Seeing this Batman figure inserted into pivotal scenes from the Frank Miller comic demonstrates that cloth on the rest of the figure enhances the aesthetic by obscuring the articulation. It will come down to how Mez’s factory executes in mass production, though – I’ll be watching out for seam lines, since they may appear huge at this scale, and how the suit holds up over time.
In the meantime, get ready to drool over these pics. You can pre-order the exclusive blue and gray DKR Batman at Mezco. The black and gray pre-sold out a while ago there but can still be had at other online retailers like Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore. The Mezco DKR Batman should start shipping in mid-January.
