Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Yes! I found the second wave of Batman Unlimited today

First up is Batman from Frank Miller's seminal The Dark Knight Returns:

This is the first DC figure to use the bulkier Masters of the Universe Classics body. It's perfect for the look of Batman from this story, though.

Next we have Planet-X Batman:

Funny how the name and bio on the package talk of this as the goofy Planet-X version from the silver age, yet this figure is very clearly meant to be the Batman of Zur En Arrh from Grant Morrison's Batman R.I.P. I guess the thought of Batman hiding an alternate personality inside his head that turns him into a savage maniac with Bat-mite as his hallucinated spirit-guide is a bit much for kids. Oh, and Bat-mite! This is one of the most awesome accessories possible.
