NECA Goes Retro With 8-Bit Batman Figure


Because there’s no such thing as too many Batman action Figures, toymaker NECA has announced the 7-inch Batman 1989 Video Game figure.

NECA’s first 7-inch Batman figure will be based on his appearance in the 1989 Sunsoft game, Batman: The Video Game. Since the game was based on the 1989 Tim Burton-directed ‘Batman’ movie, the figure’s costume and face will be based on Michael Keaton’s portrayal of the character, but painted to resemble the 8-bit sprite from the game. The purple and light blue toy will feature 25 points of articulation, a removable cape, a Batarang and a grappling hook launcher, and will come in a special window-box package that re-creates the look of the NES game’s box.

NECA has previously produced 8-bit action figures for Robocop, Predator, Freddie Krueger, Jason Voorhees and Rocky Balboa, making Batman the sixth entry in the series when he’s released in October. While I’m not a fan of the line myself, the collector in me sees the appeal it has for many other fans.

More details should be expected at San Diego Comic Con this weekend.
