Mezco One:12 scale Frank Miller Dark Knight Batman 6.75-inch tall action figure is AWESOME!

Mezco has released details and new images for its Dark Knight Returns Batman 1/12th scale action figure.

Announced over the summer as part of the One:12 Collective line, the Batman figure — based on the landmark 1986 miniseries by Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley — stands 6.75 inches tall and boasts more than 30 points of articulation. It comes with four pairs of interchangeable hands, an interchangeable boot with holster, pistol, removable utility belt, grappling hook, alternate head, Bat-symbol display base, articulated figure stand and “detachable cape-posing stand accessory.”

This is what I love about this hobby, when toy companies dare to try new things and not just be stuck with the old stuff. One of the reasons I went into collecting 1/6 scale figures was because of the fabric outfits / costumes which concealed the joints and made the figure look more realistic. Smaller scaled action figures tend to be made from molded plastic with cuts made into the plastic body parts to allow articulation which looses the seamless look of the figure. This figure, which ships in January 2015, will set you back about US$65.
