This looks really cool. Michael Keaton was my fav Batman. Anyone else interested in getting this once it's out?

Saw this a while ago. People seem to really be going for this video game coloured figures, but I find them hit or miss. The Predator and Robocop looked cool. This one... meh. Hope they find a way to make him in film colours.

They did also make a regular Michael Keaton Batman which looks better in my opinion but I believe it's discontinued

I'm pretty sure that the MK Batman Neca produced was 18". I don't believe that they've done a 6" scaled version.
I'm personally looking forward to Sideshow's Premium Format MK Batman that is due later this year.

Yes your right, it definitely is not 6". I was just referring to Batman's in general.

Just had a look at the premium one now and it looks fantastic (https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/dc-comics-batman-sideshow-collectibles-3002501/)

MK's original Batman costume is the definitive Batman IMO. I just love the bold Yellow & Black Bat symbol on the chest. I hope someone produces a Val Kilmer Batman one day Smile

Yer I agree. Mk's Batman costume is my favorite. I enjoyed the 90s Batman movies as well including Val Kilmer. I dont think George Clooney was the best choice for batman though.

I always thought George Clooney would have made a great Bruno Wayne, Bruce's European cousin, but not Bruce Wayne himself LoL....

I watched Batman Forever last weekend and as embarrassed as I am to admit this, I kinda enjoyed it more than I thought I would Smile

Well I hope they start finding some better Batman's - after Ben Affleck (Maybe too early to judge lol)
