Despite all the on-screen expressions of Batman, Michael Keaton‘s portrayal of the caped crusader in Tim Burton‘s 1989 film has undoubtedly become an important part in the history of the character. Looking to honor that take on Batman positioned in Burton’s noir take on Gotham City, Tamashi Nations’ S.H. Figuarts has put together a fully articulated figure representation.

The six-inch figure comes with an accurate sculpt of Keaton’s face under a large one-piece cowl attached to a draping cape. Looking to faithfully convey the aesthetic elements of the character, rubber-like material and flowing fabrics were used to aid in gliding poses. Other faithful elements include the muscle sculpted on the body, yellow framed bat symbol and chunky utility belt.

S.H. Figuarts also put an immense amount of focus on the eyes on the figure, emotive detailing applied to eyes is accented by the by dark concealer that works with the cowl. The figure comes complete with two different expressions, nine extra hands, a batarang, two shurikens, a grappling gun and metal posing supports.

Priced at $72 USD, S.H. Figuarts’s Michael Keaton 1989 Batman figure is available now for pre-order at collectible purveyors like Entertainment Earth with the official release coming October.

In case you missed it, AMBUSH and BAIT recently collaborated on the ASTRO BOY AMBUSH figure.
