They’re not dolls, they’re Batction Figures!

In case you couldn’t tell from today’s Photo Friday; I like batman. I’m also almost 30 and have a penchant for wanting toys from the things I love. Usually they get taken out of the box, posed in the coolest way possible, photographed, and left out on a shelf like a statue immortalizing a testament of my nerdy nerdy love. The latest addition to my collection are the Arkham Asylum Batman & Joker from Play Arts Kai, the high end line of Square Enix related toys.

These figures feature higher attention to detail, greater artistic sculpting, 26 points of articulation (including some double jointing), and interchangeable appendages & accessories.

You won’t find any bare spots in the paint or deformed accessories here!

Holy DLC Batman!

Just announced within the last week, the new Harley Quinn’s Revenge mission pack for Arkham City!

Harley Quinn’s Revenge will be available to purchase from May 29th on both Xbox LIVE (800 Microsoft Points) and PlayStation Network ($9.99) and also included in the Game of the Year Edition of Batman: Arkham City, which will also be available on May 29th.

The Harley Quinn’s Revenge mission sends players back into Arkham City to face their final challenge as they interchange between playing as both Batman and Robin. Gamers must utilize each of the characters’ unique combat and investigative skills to uncover Harley’s vengeful plan and shut the gates on the urban mega-prison forever. In addition to experiencing a new storyline, fans can explore new environments and face-off against Harley’s all new gang of thugs.

This is the final chapter in Batman: Arkham City that adds more than two hours of original gameplay to the critically-acclaimed interactive title!
