NECA, a company that designs all sorts of excellent action figures and collectibles based on everything from popular movies, video games and comics, has just unveiled one of the coolest action figures imaginable.
Recently the company started a line of figures that were based on popular characters as they appeared in old NES games, complete with packaging reminiscent of the box art the games came in. Figures in the line included Freddy Kruger from a Nightmare on Elm Street, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th, and RoboCop from…RoboCop. I’m proud to share the news that NECA’s next figure in the line will be Batman as he appears in Batman: The Video Game on the NES.
Batman (1989 Video Game Appearance) is the sixth figure in our highly successful line of classic 8-bit video game tributes. Following Michael Keaton’s iconic portrayal as Batman in the movie, the side-scrolling game was released in late 1989 for the super popular 8-bit home console, and is a true ’80s classic.
Batman stands 7″ tall, with over 25 points of articulation for great poses, plus removable cape, Batarang and Spear Gun accessories. Stylized paint deco reproduces the game’s original cel-shaded look. Special window box packaging with opening flap to re-create the look and feel of the classic 1989 video game packaging.
