I’ve admired Hot Toys action figures (that kind of boarder on dolls) for a long time, but I haven’t seen a figure that really said, “Buy me!” Well that figure is finally arrived with the 1989 Michael Keaton Batman. It’s so sweet that I nearly wept when I first saw it. Okay, I did weep openly and when a coworker asked what was wrong I pretended I was crying over something manly like a sports victory.
Holy shit, this figure looks so insanely close to real life and he comes with a ton of accessories. Also according to the product description it has rolling eyes. WTF?! The interchangeable heads are a tad creepy, because they’re just the part of the face that’s visible. I guess that saves some money, but damn does that look bizarre in the picture.
I have such a strong attachment to 1989 Batman that I need to get this. At more than 200 bucks at stores like Big Bad Toy Store it’s way more than I should be spending on a toy. In fact, I’ve scaled way back on collecting in general, but this is a rare exception. It’s just too awesome to pass up. I needs me my ’89 Batman!
