The lights are on
If you’re looking for beautifully sculpted, gaming-themed character toys, it’s hard to go wrong with Square Enix’s line of Play Arts Kai figures. We’ve known for some time that we’d be getting an awesome-looking Batman and Deathstroke figure modeled after those characters' appearances in Batman: Arkham Origins. But in recent weeks we've gotten a first look at Robin and Joker figures as well.
At $100 apiece, these collector’s figures aren’t for casual fans. But the quality plastics, high poseability, and fun accessories make these figures a solid pick for hardcore fans of the Arkham branch of the Batman fiction. Previous figures from the older games have been stellar, and there’s no reason to believe these new entries won’t stack up.
Batman and Deatstroke are said to be ready for purchase in the next few days, while Robin and Joker seem to be steering for a January release. If you’re ready to take the plunge, you can buy directly from the Square Enix store, or pre-order through third-party online toy stores like BigBadToyStore.
