The acclaimed first-person shooter gaming experience from Irrational and 2K gets the NECA treatment once again with American hero Booker DeWitt. Sent to the city of Columbia to rescue the young captive Elizabeth, becoming embroiled in a class battle between underdogs and the elite. When he discovers that Elizabeth has special capabilities that allow her to find “Tears” in space-time and influence the fate of Columbia, stuff gets real. Visually stunning and innovative when it comes to setting and narrative, Infinite won awards and was deemed the third-highest rated game of 2013.
Turn-of-the-20th-century ‘murrca and futuristic dystopian elements come together in the persona of Booker DeWitt. Here, he stands seven inches tall, arms out at his side and ready to grasp the weapon accessory. He also features moveable joints that will allow for multiple posing styles. NECA has ensconced him in classic clamshell packaging, great for box display or hands-on play alike.
Steampunk’s not dead.
Hot toys and Sideshow come together once again for the recently-arrived 1:6 scalre Sonar Batman from The Dark Knight. It was a pivotal scene in the film, when Batman activated the sonar equipment installed by Lucius Fox and in doing so brought to the screen the glowing white-eyed look so iconic to Batman in the comics. Fan service? Perhaps, but it worked and worked well so it’s no surprise that it’s been commemorated in this figure.
Standing about 12 inches tall and featuring 32 points of articulation, the figure also comes with a ton of accessories and switchable parts. Grappling gun, batarangs, alternate hands and…well, it gets better as you can read in the description: “One head features the Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS), which allows the life-like eyeballs to be moved in any direction, much like human eyes! The alternate head features the sonar vision devise, with button cell batteries allowing the eyes to light up!”. That’s right, movable eyes and light-up ones. Does it get better? Maybe with the LED-lit stand to bathe your figure in white light on the display shelf. It’s an amazing piece for any collector.
And while we’re sure you probably already own it, how about some links to The Dark Knight on DVD and Blu-Ray, in case you’ve been remiss in picking it up…
