BREAKING: Mezco Toyz Knightmare Batman available for pre-order Monday!
Mezco Toyz has kept good in its promise to deliver to fans its interpretation of Knightmare Batman from the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie!
The good news is that the figure will be available for pre-order come Monday. BUT the bad news is that its a "Mezco Exclusive"- which will probably mean the production units will be limited in number.
Mezco's Classic Punisher variant only has 400 units in production for pre-order worldwide, and I suspect Knightmare Batman will be the same. Sigh.
Here's what we know so far from Mezco Toyz's official website:
Born in the fevered dreams of Bruce Wayne, Knightmare Batman inhabits a world gone wrong. Gotham has been replaced by a post-apocalyptic desert patrolled by a military loyal to the Last Son Of Krypton. Knightmare Batman joins the One:12 collective with a comprehensively detailed outfit that perfectly recreates the cinematic look of the character.
THE KNIGHTMARE BATMAN ONE:12 COLLECTIVE FIGURE FEATURES:
Three (3) head portraits Standard portrait Alternate portrait Unmasked Bruce Wayne portrait One:12 Collective body with over 30 points of articulation Hand painted authentic detailing Over 16cm tall Five (5) interchangeable hands including One (1) pair of fists (L & R) One (1) posing hand (R) One (1) gun-holding hand (R) One (1) holding hand (L)

Pros: Fantastic cloth detail, size and sculpt. The alternate Batfleck unmasked headsculpt seals the deal for any Batman fan.
Cons: For a Mezco exclusive, it doesn't seem to come with many accessories, albeit the standard expected ones with the figure. But seeing as the only alternative to this is the Mafex one, fans won't mind coughing up the moolah to add this to their collection.
