Swear to me that this Batman Arkham Origins figure rocks!

Arkham Bat (1)

I’m busy replaying Batman: Arkham Origins, and to be fair, it’s still a lacklustre and mediocre game that doesn’t live up to fantastic efforts of Rocksteady, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Still, if there’s one thing that I do like about the game, it’s the Batsuit. Which is probably why I’m slobbering over this figure right now.

NECA, who you might remember as being one of the action figure lines that Musica had a brief flirtation with a couple of years ago, are busy crafting a new Batman figure, based on his Arkham Origins appearance. And hot damn, it does look spiffy indeed. Embiggen the images above to see for yourself.

That’s a quarter scale figure of fist-based corrective therapy right there folks. 18 inches of plastic, or about the same length as that condom that you’ll never use. 25 points of articulation, a real fabric cape, and vigilante kung-fu grip accessories. You can keep your sports cars, it’s plastic figures like this that get me hot under the collar.

This big bad Batman will be out later this year. And of course, I’m already drooling all over the new Arkham Knight costume, which might have a patent lawsuit on its hands from Stark Industries.

      I expected that to go the way of the Ice Cream Man.

        What, did you expect me to mention something like an “Old King Clancy”?

          I had no idea what to expect.
          All I knew was that it had the potential to be horribly traumatizing.

    I need someone to put together a database of winning Lotto numbers (South African only) for the last 5 years.

    I’ll also need the assistance of someone who is extremely knowledgeable about Mathematics and Statistics.

      Winning lotto numbers are on their website since inception. Maths and Stats doesn’t help much in predicting the lotto.

        That’s just because no one’s managed to develop the correct formula, yet.

          if you can make the correct formula, then you’d be a millionaire. Need help? I can draw numbers pretty well. We’ll make a venn diagram or something.

    Must say, I’ve played AA and was bored about 20mins in it. Finished it and moved on, never bothered with the rest.

      with me, twenty minutes in and I was hooked. Loved 90% of the game. Ending was a bit poor, but generally fantastic

        The fighting just became one dimensional and tedious for me. I don’t know I just never connected with the game. Maybe I was in a bad place when I played it.

      I felt the same, AA wasn’t great. A City was amazing. You need to try that. That was THE best superhero game ever.
