Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I have been practising hard for Halloween by eating as much candy as possible these last few days! I also get the feeling that a couple of people will be dressing up for Halloween in the offices on Friday!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Batman: Hero’s Edition!

From ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ comes a Nendoroid of Batman! His entirely black outfit has been made using different textures for areas such as the chest and cape, faithfully keeping all the subtle differences in shades of black.

His batarang and grapnel gun are also included, as well as an alternate body part completely wrapped up in his cape! A searchlight with the bat signal is also included allowing for all sorts of scenes to be recreated in cute Nendoroid size! The front of the searchlight can also be removed to display the bat signal mark alone instead!

Oooooohhhhh!!! (´□`。)

The Dark Knight of Gotham City is joining the Nendoroids! ♡ 

The very first Nendoroid from the world of DC Comics! Also my personal favorite character from US comics, so I couldn’t be happier!

There have of course already been quite a few Nendoroids from Marvel Comics!

· Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 7: Hero’s Edition
· Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42: Hero’s Edition + Hall of Armor Set
· Nendoroid Iron Patriot: Hero’s Edition
· Nendoroid Spider-Man: Hero’s Edition

But anyway, let’s get back onto Batman!! 

The bumps and indents of his outfit have been carefully sculpted!

Batman really is a Dark Knight in the fact that he wears an outfit that is almost completely black,  but even so if yo look close you’ll see that different areas have a different texture, and the bat on his chest is faithfully included! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

The careful sculpting and use of textures takes a rather simple one-color outfit and turns it into a rather impressive sight!

Plus just like Ironman and Spider-Man,
Batman’s elbows, knees and chest area are articulated making him a much more posable Nendoroid compared to most! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Let’s see how he looks from the back!

His cape is split into a left and right side, even allowing you to pose the cape with a dynamic movement to it! (。・ω・)ノ゙

In his hand he is holding a grapnel gun!

A very important item for Batman! A high-tech gadget that shoots wires out allowing him to move around quickly and easily! 

Plus he also comes with an alternate body part which allows you to pose him in a rather memorable pose!

Even the tiny little gap at the top of the cape had his body carefully detailed! The difference in texture of the cape compared to his normal outfit is also very faithfully preserved!(・ω・)b

By the way… because this body is a completely separate part, you can also place other Nendoroid head parts on it!


 “I’m impressed you made it this far!”

Add an insidious feeling to any character!
*Perhaps its just insidious looking as it’s Dayo-san…

The included parts provide all sorts of fun possibilities! Definitely something to look forward to!!

(・∀・) “There are other optional parts too!”

We’re joined by the figure’s planner, Enon! 

(・∀・) “As you mentioned he comes with the grapnel gun as one of his weapons, but there is another weapon that just had to be included for this to truly be a Batman figure!”


He seems to be holding something… something golden and metallic looking!
Is that what I think it is?! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ

(・∀・) “I’m sure it is! Be comes with his very versatile Batarang!

The edges are even made to look a little sharp!! It’s lovely!! 

(・∀・) “Plus even though it’s tiny, it can be attached and removed from the hand!”

It’s so nicely made for something so small! A true work of art!!

(・∀・) “Speaking of works of art… he also comes with the bat signal!

The ‘light’ of the searchlight is made with translucent parts in order to make it look like a searchlight! It’s amazing how well it works! ε=(。・д・。)

(・∀・) “The light can also be removed from the searchlight in order to display it before it’s turned on! The bat signal shape is of course included on the switched off version too!


Details added to parts that normally wouldn’t even be seen! The bat shape is actually rather cute! ♡

(・∀・) “We tried our best to make him able to take epic action poses, and also paid very close attention the the sculpting! I hope fans will enjoy him!”

Perhaps you can display him with the previously released Marvel Comics heroes! You could create Marvel Vs. DC in Nendoroid size! 

The adorable Dark Knight, here to join your collection!

Nendoroid Batman: Hero’s Edition!

He’ll be up for preorder from the 30th October 2014!

(・∀・) “Plus we also have a special bonus for those who choose to order from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP!”

(・∀・) “An alternate light part for the searchlight which has a different color and Batman’s 75th Anniversary logo!”
