The Batman, the new 1/6 scale figures from Queen Studios are crazy!

The Batman

There is a new contender for Hot Toys, H.K.'s well-known action figure company, since Queen Studios decided to enter the 1/6 scale collectible market. After making some incredibly realistic busts and statues with maniacal details, Queen Studios has announced a series of editions of action figures taken from The Batman, the blockbuster of the last months, with the characters of Batman and Bruce Wayne that between a few lines we will go into detail.

The Batman - Synopsis

The Batman is the latest cinematic chapter that debuted in cinemas on March 3, 2022. Matt Reeves, the director of the The film, which took over the project after Ben Affleck left him, kept the idea of ​​talking about a young Batman completely untying him from what we saw in Batman v Superman and Justice League. This new Batman is therefore set in another narrative universe than the DCEU, like Joker, maintaining the basic idea of ​​dealing with the events of a Batman at the beginning while collaborating with the Gotham City police to unmask the threats of the Riddler and the disturbing Catwoman.

The Batman 1/6 Queen Studios

The figure will be 30 cm high and will be made of various materials starting from the plastic body and the fabric clothes but there will be additional accessories and parts optional to be able to create any type of pose you want to have the Crusader of Gotham take on. Queen Studios has announced that there will be four editions in all, two featuring Batman in costume (Standard and Premium) and two featuring Bruce Wayne in civilian clothes (Standard and Premium). Clearly the choice of the product will inevitably also affect the price since the Premium version will contain more accessories but will also be the one most coveted by collectors. Additional incentive for the purchase of the two Premium editions, the Bat-signal, otherwise not sold separately.

The Batman Arkham subreddit has decreed that Batman: Arkham World exists and is cool

Arkham Solar System coming in 2025

I'm a big fan of shared, collective funtimes, so I must lay flowers at the feet of posters on the Batman Arkham subreddit (maybe not flowers; like, bat-themed knives and big stompy boots. I don't know, what does Batman like?). A couple of weeks ago, with no new mainline Arkham game since 2015's Arkham Knight, they started discussing Batman: Arkham World, a fourth game in the series that came out in 2021. Except, of course, it does not exist.

The person who kicked it off appears to be u/FrozeninIce248, who declared that the sub should take a leaf out of the Titanfall subreddit and then did. They posted commemorating the anniversary of Arkham World's release, asking for 'this sub's opinion on the game'. 'I loved the open world in this game the most,' they said, 'because it was a literal world'. And boy did the sub respond.

Since then there have been a lot of posts, all expanding the Arkham World lore in both the content of the original post itself and the discussion in threads beneath it. Here are some things I know about Batman: Arkham World:

  • It has ongoing DLC and challenge updates
  • It may have already been remastered as Return To Arkham World?
  • The Joker is back as the main villain
  • The Joker is using portals to move around the Arkham World
  • These portals resemble the ones Dr. Strange, off of Marvel, uses
  • In fact, Spider-Man turns up
  • And characters from Star Wars, Godzilla, and Breaking Bad (among others)
  • All of these things are because Arkham World is about Batman travelling the multiverse
  • With a gadget called the Bat-Universe-Jumper
  • I've seen it alleged by some posts that it's a reference to a bit of NPC dialogue from Arkham City, in which a thug would understandbly ask if a 'big-ass Arkham World' was going to be next. But honestly, who can say? Whatever the case, it's worth doing a dig through some of the earlier/top posts, because being covered by outlets external to the sub means the meme is already in its end-game (h/t to Lady Emily, whose Tweet is actually what alerted this external outlet to it). There has been at least one post earnestly asking what Arkham World is. If Rocksteady ever acknowledge it, it'll be dead (a la Morbius)

    Technically the canonical follow up to Arkham Knight is Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, but that's not as fun and it isn't out until next year anyway. There's also Gotham Knights, which looks more traditionally Arkham-y but doesn't actually have Batman in it.
