NECA’s 1989 video-game Batman rides the 8-bit nostalgia wave

So what’s so special about how Batman looked in 1989? Well, besides the obvious fact that anything in 8-bit is infinitely more rad than whatever’s out there in the 21st century, this Batman was made especially to recall Michael Keaton’s performance in the iconic movie. It’s the sixth figure in NECA’s 8-bit video game character series, and we think it’s about time! Give the gift of nostalgia these holidays, wrapped in a seven-inch-tall package with 25 points of articulation.

He comes with a removable cape, a Batarang and a Spear Gun. Side-scroll away with a deco paint job that looks just like the original game’s cell-shaded aesthetic. A window box replicates the ’80s gaming feel and allows you to display Batman in a great-looking way. Nab him now.

Batman might look like he just stepped out of the '80s, but the caped hero's legacy is timeless.
