UPCOMING BATMAN MERCHENDISE 2009

Posted by Bob Tilley Tuesday, 21 October 2008

BATMAN COSBABY MINI-FIGURES BY HOT TOYS

Under special arrangement with Hong Kong toymaker Hot Toys, DC Direct is delighted to offer the Batman line of CosBaby mini figures!

Inspired by CosPlay (from the contraction of words “costume play”) – a type of performance art and role play in which the cosplayers meticulously outfit themselves in character costumes from sources such as manga, anime, comics, movies and video games to become the characters they emulate, reenacting scenes from the original sources – these Batman CosBaby mini-figures are the cutest little tykes around!

Featuring eight Batman CosBaby designs: Batman Modern (Black Costume), Batman Classic (Blue Costume), The Joker, Robin, Batgirl, Catwoman, Two-Face and a special Mystery Figure, these mini-figures are the perfect size to collect and display!

Packaged on a 4-color blister card, each fully assembled CosBaby stands approximately 3” tall.


THE DARK KNIGHT: THE JOKER VINYL STATUEBY KOTOBUKIYA

Under special arrangement with Japanese manufacturer Kotobukiya, DC Direct brings the exquisite craftsmanship and high-level quality of Kotobukiya to fans!

Kotobukiya and DC Direct are proud to offer this vinyl statue of The Joker standing amid a blazing fire.

The statue comes with an additional head and other accessories.

The Dark Knight: The Joker Vinyl Statue is approximately 12” tall and is packaged in a 4-color window box.


JLA TROPHY ROOM: BAT-CUFFS PROP REPLICA

One of Batman’s most famous crime-fighting gadgets is the latest addition to the JLA TROPHY ROOM: life-sized Bat-Cuffs that fold down to fit into Batman’s utility belt!

Reproduced for the first time ever as a high-quality prop replica, these metal Bat-Cuffs come with a special bat-shaped key. They fold in half for easy transport, or can be displayed on the included stand. Packaged in a 4-color box, the Bat-Cuffs also come with a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity. Limited-edition.

The Bat-Cuffs are for display only and are not designed to be used.


LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT BOX SET

From Gotham City's rooftops to its dark alleyways, Batman's war on crime has become the stuff of legend. Commemorating these adventures of the Dark Knight, DC Direct unveils a new box set featuring one of Batman's closest allies – and some of his most nightmarish adversaries!

This box set includes four action figures, all featuring brand new deco paints, as well as LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT SPECIAL, a unique 64-page collection of stories featuring each character’s secret origin and other tales.


UNI-FORMZ: BATMAN DESIGNED & SCULPTED BY MONSTER 5


Batman is the first in a new line of stylized vinyl UNI-FORMZ, inspired by the red-hot designer toy phenomenon!

DC Direct has joined forces with popular contemporary toy designer Monster 5 to create this unique version of Batman. This bold new take on the Caped Crusader is a must-have for collectors of contemporary toy design, as well as traditional fans of Batman!

Debuting this month are three styles of Batman: the “modern” Batman in his black costume, a variant version in the “classic” blue and gray costume, and an ultra-stylized variant “armored” version!

These designer toys are limited! Once they are sold out, DC Direct will not produce these styles again!

In keeping with the tradition of designer toys, rarity of certain incarnations are the norm. The Batman variants (“classic” and “armored”) will be produced in far lower quantities.
