NECA's 1/4 Scale Michael Keaton Batman from the 1989 film

Postby Barbecue17 » Mon Jan 20, 2014 10:47 am

I finally got this guy and just got him reviewed yesterday evening: http://www.thepicreview.com/2014/01/14-scale-michael-keaton-batman-from.html

If you're looking for just one Batman from the 1989 film, this guy definitely should be considered. He's really amazing! I found a solid stand for him for around $3 at a Hobby Lobby and now have him posed standing over my entertainment center.

I really want the Adam West Batman now, too.

Nice review...I'd really like this figure too, I think it looks better than the Hot Toys version; not thrilled on how the HT suit turned out, articulation seems very limited.

Looking back at the pics, I do have one question....

In regards to the Bat logo, can it be turned a tad to center? This is the second review I've heard/watched and both logos are off just a bit.

Just a thought off the top of my so-called mind

I was playing around with it and managed to get it pretty lined up. I think the issue is that the batsymbol is attached to the head/cowl and not the chest, so when you move the head a bit for a better pose, you ultimately get the chest misaligned.

Also, since the cape is anchored by the cowl/head, moving the cape around (which is what you tend to do when setting the figure down) kind of shifts the cowl a bit as well.
