Nendoroid Batman – Justice Edition

We review a Nendoroid of the knight of Justice, Batman

Everybody that is everybody knows Batman. He is one of the three most popular DC Comics heroes, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, who are warriors for truth, justice and the American way. Created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, Batman first appeared in Detective Comics issue 27 on May 1939. Over the decades he appeared in many forms in many comics, movies, television series and animated series. Batman’s alter ego is playboy millionaire Bruce Wayne who as a child saw his parents murdered in an alley and it made him swore revenge on all criminals.

Bruce Wayne trained himself physically and mentally, used his father’s company and other resources to help him make the Bat Suit and became the caped crusader, Batman. Throughout the years other heroes became part of his quests like his sidekick Robin, Bat Girl and much more. In the comics, he also became a close friend of Superman and aided the Man of Steel many times.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice plays off 18 months after the events in the Man of Steel movie. Clark Kent (Superman) moved in with Lois Lane. Batman, who’s been operating in Gotham City for two decades sees Superman as a potential threat to humanity. On the other hand, Clark sees Batman as a threat and tries to put a spanner in Batman’s works using his work as the ace reporter at the Daily Planet in Metropolis.

Overall: A serious 7.75

Paint Job – 8

The Nendoroid’s paint job is nicely done and it gives it a heavy and metallic feeling.

Sculpting – 8

The detail on the Batman Nendoroid is well done, but the Batarang needs a little touch more.

Bat Signal

Design – 7

Including the Bat Signal in the design is a very nice touch, would have been even better maybe if they include a Bat Signal lamp to get that full authentic ‘Batman’ effect. The design is great but the Batarang looks a little unconvincing, sadly.

Display Worth – 8

To a serious collector, this will be a must.

Verdict

The Nendoroid 628 Batman – Justice Edition is not bad at all but there are even better tailored Batman Nendoroids out there. Still, this one will definitely sell like hotcakes. Well done Good Smile Company.
