Batman, Robin, Man of Bats and Knight are the first series of figures from Grant Morrison’s BATMAN INC. line, which saw the Batman universe multiplied internationally as the bat-cowl was franchised. All over the world, Batman and Robin had counterparts of different origins, races and cultures and it created a whole new crop of great stories.
In the first series, we get Bruce Wayne as a newly-reinstated Batman, Damian Wayne as Robin, the Native American Batman Man of Bats and the English Superhero Knight (of Knight and Squire). Each one comes with accessories, features multiple points of articulation and stands about 6 inches tall. If you were a fan of the story arc, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on one or all of these brand new figures!
Look for Prehistoric Batman, With Hunter Batman, Wild West Batman and High Seas Batman in this awesome set of figures based on The Return of Bruce Wayne, the follow-up to Grant Morrison’s BATMAN R.I.P. arc, which saw Dick Grayson take up the Bat-mantle in his mentor’s stead. It was a strange, new age in the DC Universe and it was hugely successful in bringing something fresh to the character and those around him.
Now you can grab the figures based on Bruce Wayne’s triumphant trip through time (where he was thrown by the evil Darkseid) to get back to the modern era and Gotham City. As per usual, you can get them individually or as a four-figure set.
Prehistoric Batman, High Seas Batman, Witch Hunter Batman and Wild West Batman can now be pre-ordered as part of the RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE collection. Based on the comics that followed Grant Morrison’s BATMAN RIP and following Bruce Wayne as he fight his way through time, the story culminated in BATMAN, INC. wherein the whole Bat-Family comes together and spreads out across the globe.
But mostly, the arc has made for some pretty rad figures, featuring Batman in ways he hasn’t been seen since the 90s brought us a ridiculous collection of Batman variants that had absolutely nothing to do with comics, films or television but gave kids another thing to snag off the shelves. And I’m pleased to say that these are much, much better.
