Okay, I got Batman last week. Very nice figurine, very beautiful sculpt, the paint is good but I will give it only a 7/10 (the yellow paint of the belt is my only concern, since my Batman got a bit of yellow on the belly - hem sorry the lower abdominal muscles).
I don't know what Bruce Wayne took for breakfast the day he poses for this figurine, but he is HUGE OVER MUSCULAR (imo) : he is far more muscular than Captain America (it almost makes me wonder if this Cap figurine was made before or after Steve Roger took the super soldier serum !!!). In fact, this Batman is more muscular than most of the Marvel figurines (a change of artist who makes the sculpt ?)
Batman is bigger and taller than Cap, for example, but he is the same size than Hawkeye (by the way, since when is Clint Barton taller and more muscular than Captain America ?).
The good surprise (imo) came from the magazine : no more humour, well written, the only thing I regret is that you don't have any poster inside ! There is a special chapter on the Frank Miller's Dark Knight and the Miller Mazzuchelli run on Batman Year one.
I will continue the collection, of course, but I will not get all of them.
If the artist keeps on insisting so much on anatomical details, I can't wait to see what he will do on Powergirl ...
I will send some pics .
