Review 1: Square Enix Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Origins Deathstroke 10" (25.5 cm) figure

This is the Batman: Arkham Origins Play Arts Kai Deathstroke 10-inch (25.5 cm) tall figure. This is the Deathstroke who appears in Batman: Arkham Origins video game, voiced by Mark Rolston. He is among the eight assassins hired to kill Batman by the Joker.

Deathstroke the Terminator (also known by his name Slade Wilson, originally called simply the Terminator) is a comic book supervillain, and sometimes antihero, who appears in books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassin who first appeared in The New Teen Titans (vol. 1) #2 (1980).

I remember Deathstroke from my much younger days when I followed the adventures of the Teen Titans in the DC comic books. George Perez’s art was a treat! Deathstroke re-emerged recently on The CW’s Arrow television series and in the series, Slade (played by Manu Bennett) is of Australian descent and a former ASIS agent. Slade would feature strongly in Seasons 1 and 2.
Being an assassin, Slade would be able to identify somewhat with the figure I posted previously in my toy blog – The Winter Soldier (see my reviews and pictures HERE and HERE). I doubt there’ll be a 12-inch Deathstroke figure anytime soon so this 10-inch Slade Wilson should suffice for now. Plus he makes a very nice companion to Play Arts Kai Square Enix “Batman: Arkham Origins” Batman 10.5-inch action figure (recently posted HERE and HERE)

I wasn’t a fan of Square Enix Play Arts Kai action figures until this year. I liked the look of Deathstroke in the preview pictures (posted HERE) and they were enough to make me pre-order this even though I had never picked up any figure before. I’ve seen Play Arts action figures at the retail shops and the head sculpts always threw me off because they were usually too anime / manga looking for my liking. This Deathstroke figure, and the Arkham Origins Batman, looked really good.
Everything is in the top tray: the figure, the weapons. There’s a figure display stand at the bottom. You can see what the figure stand looks like HERE. The inner flap reads: “Deathstroke is a mercenary rumored to have contributed to the assassinations of dictators and other prominent people.”
Weapons and accessories include: a rifle, a pistol, staff and sword plus additional hands
Deathstroke’s distinguishing characteristics include an impaired right eye, graying hair, and orange accented black body armor. His unique mask reveals only his left eye, and the ninja look are trademarks that make Deathstroke instantly recognizable. Formerly having served in the military as an accomplished member of the special forces, he was subject to a covert experiment from which he gained superhuman healing power and physical capabilities after being subjected to extensive mental and physical augmentation. The procedures left him with increased mental function, as well as enhanced speed, strength, and stamina.
Following his military service, Wilson worked for various private military contractors before striking out on his own – and allegedly becoming one of the highest paid contract killers in the world, specializing in high profile assassinations.
Highly skilled in explosives, close-range combat, high level ambush strategies and all weaponry, Deathstroke proves to be a deadly and formidable foe that challenges Batman like no other before.

His unique weapons and abilities include regenerating health and super strength, a rifle-staff with a built-in grapple, a sword, explosives, and firearms.

Deathstroke carries his sword in a sheath on his back. He looks pretty equipped to fight a small war.

Close-up pictures of Square Enix Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Origins Deathstroke 10-inch (25.5 cm) action figure. I like the overall design of Deathstroke’s outfit / costume with all the pouches and gadgets he carries on him. He would certainly make a formidable opponent to Batman.

After three review posts with lots of pictures of the recently released Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” 1/7 scale Deathstroke 10-inch figure, it’s only fitting to put both Deathstroke and Batman together to do battle as they did in the video game.

These two are my second and third Square Enix Play Arts Kai action figures that I got after RoboCop 2014 version 1.0. Check out my review of the re-imagined and rebooted RoboCop action figure from the 2014 movie of the same name HERE, HERE and HERE. I wanted to see how these two “Batman: Arkham Origins” video game figures look when posed together, in terms of scale and size. I’m happy to report that they certainly look good together.

Deathstroke appears in “Batman: Arkham Origins”, and is among the eight assassins hired to kill Batman by the Joker. He appears in Penguin’s ship, the Final Offer, attacking Batman while he is interrogating Penguin about Black Mask and his connection to the assassins.

I have already reviewed the Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” Batman 10.5-inch (26.5cm) tall action figure on my toy blog earlier HERE and HERE. Now we see Batman defending himself against the attack by Deathstroke in a close combat battle.

Review III: Square Enix Play Arts Kai "Batman: Arkham Origins" 1/7 Deathstroke 10-inch figure

I enjoyed taking photographs of this latest Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” 1/7 scale Deathstroke 10-inch action figure so much that I got carried away so I’ve quite a lot of pictures to post and ended up with a three-part review of this Deathstroke action figure.

The thing is, I always enjoyed taking pictures of my figures. In the past however, when digital cameras were not the norm, taking pictures can be quite a chore and a pain. You had to buy rolls of film to load into the camera and you could only send your pictures for processing and development after the entire roll of film was finished before you could see how your pictures turned out. By then, time has passed and most times, you couldn’t do a re-shoot because the event was over. So you always hoped that the pictures you took were good enough. You wouldn’t want to take too many shots of the same subject too because it would mean you had less shots left for other subjects. With the advent of the digital camera, you could just snap as many pictures as you like and view them immediately after you’ve taken them before deciding whether or not you want to move on to the next subject matter. The digital age certainly has made things so much easier and faster too.

Deathstroke has a number of origin stories because DC has tweaked and reworked it many times to keep things interesting and help with the flow of the character development. One of the origin stories is that Slade Wilson’s wife took out his right eye when she discovered that he had endangered their son and caused him to become mute. Afterward, his confidence in his physical abilities was such that he made no secret of his impaired vision, marked by his mask which has a black, featureless half covering his lost eye. Without his mask, Slade wears an eye-patch.
In the live action TV series “Arrow”, Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) is stabbed in the right eye by an arrow at the hands of Oliver Queen who would become Green Arrow later on. But enough with the “how” Slade lost his eye story, lets continue with the “show and tell” instead. Here’s Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” 1/7 scale Deathstroke 10-inch (25.5cm) tall action figure armed with his staff. In the video game on which this figure is based upon, the staff is unique as it’s a rifle-staff with a built-in grapple.

I don’t play the “Batman: Arkham Origins” game but I love what they did with the Deathstroke character in terms of the design and I’m glad Square Enix chose to stay faithful to the video game designed character and reproduced him in 1/7 scale in such glorious detail. I’m not too excited with the Play Arts Kai DC variant figures where they tried to tweak the designs with an anime / manga style. I just didn’t like the designs they came up with and the faces all looked too cartoonish in a Japanese kind of way.
On the other hand, Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” 1/7 scale Deathstroke 10-inch action figure looks very nice indeed. The articulation of the figure is great and due to the design of his costume / outfit, you don’t really notice the joints as they are well hidden and not all that obvious.
Here’s the Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” 1/7 scale Deathstroke 10-inch (25.5cm) tall action figure armed with his staff. In the video game on which this figure is based upon, the staff is unique as it’s a “rifle-staff with a built-in grapple” or so I’ve read. The staff here doesn’t do any of those stuff (pun intended). It just looks like a fancy stick.
The staff has been in use as a weapon for a very long time. In medieval times, the quarterstaff (plural quarterstaves), also short staff or simply staff is a traditional European pole weapon and a technique of stick fighting. A bō (棒: ぼう), dong (Korean term), kon (Chinese term), or kun (Okinawan dialect), is a very tall and long staff weapon used in Okinawa and feudal Japan. The Chinese word gun (Chinese: 棍; pinyin: gùn, literally, “rod”, “stick”) refers to a long Chinese staff weapon used in Chinese martial arts. It is known as one of the four major weapons, along with the qiang (spear), dao (sabre), and the jian (sword), called in this group “The Grandfather of all Weapons”.
Check out more pictures taken of Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” 1/7 scale Deathstroke 10-inch figure holding the staff with two hands below, including some close-up shots.
And this is “Batman: Arkham Origins” 1/7 scale Deathstroke taking a knee.

“Your methods and tactics are impressive, but inferior. They will not save you.” ― Deathstroke to Batman

This is my second-part picture review of the Square Enix Play Arts Kai “Batman: Arkham Origins” Deathstroke 10-inch (25.5cm) tall action figure, shown here with his pistol and rifle. The articulation on this figure is pretty good and you can get quite a lot of poses in without any problem.

Deathstroke the Terminator (also known as Deathstroke, his name Slade Joseph Wilson, or formerly the Terminator) is a comic book supervillain, and sometimes antihero, who appears in books published by DC Comics. Originally a villain for the Teen Titans, writers have developed him over the years as an antagonist for the older heroes Batman and Green Arrow as well, establishing parallels between him and Batman and a deep-seated grudge between him and Green Arrow. His role as a villain for Batman and Green Arrow is reflected by his prominence in Batman video games and animated films, and in the Arrow television series.

Almost every character in the comic book world of DC will have an equivalent or similar character in the Marvel comics. There’s Aquaman in DC and Namor in Marvel, Green Arrow in DC and Hawkeye in Marvel, Catwoman in DC and Black Cat in Marvel, Black Canary in DC and Black Widow in Marvel and the list goes on. The origin stories are also all too familiar sounding.

Slade Wilson was chosen for a secret experiment, and the Army imbued him with enhanced physical powers in an attempt to create metahuman supersoldiers for the U.S. military (Doesn’t this part sound all too similar with Captain America’s origin story?). The difference is that Deathstroke became a mercenary soon after the experiment.

BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS Benchmark Video in 4K Resolution!



Fans of the “Batman: Arkham Origins” video game are gonna completely love this video! YouTube now supports 60 FPS videos, so PC GAMER Magazine tested it with this footage shot in 4K resolution!

The extreme sharpness and clarity of it is totally insane! I mean, when a character steps on the ground, you can see tiny bits of micro-dust fly around. Also, stuff like “snow flakes” looks so real!

In other words, the textures and shadows are extremely realistic. OK, I know this post might only appeal to “Game Design Nerds” but check it out anyway. It looks AMAZING!
