I am a big fan of Medicom’s MAFEX line of figures for the Dark Knight trilogy. When the Cop version of the Joker dropped down to $30 at Entertainment Earth I quickly scooped one up. Lately, Medicom has been inching the prices up on newer figures making the decision to add certain figures a little harder. This was one of those figures. I would have never see myself getting the cop version on its own. Why would someone want the cop version of the Joker that appears on the screen for less than a minute? Or a regular Bruce Wayne with a recycled Harvey Dent body? Well it’s because Medicom has been adding accessories for previous figures in later ones to make them more appealing to collectors. So, in this particular case, I was after the cop version for the alternate arms and head for my previously purchased Joker figure.
At an unnamed event, Medicom showed new figures based on Scarecrow and the fear toxin hallucinated Demon Batman from Batman Begins. Not much is known at this time, but the images come via the S.H. Figuarts Lover Thailand Facebook Page. I didn’t get much info from the comments since they were all in Thai and Facebook sucks at translating. Other trilogy figures include the recently announced Harvey Dent, Bane, Joker 2.0, Batman 3.0. Check out the pictures below. ALso part of the trilogy but not pictured are Selina Kyle (Ann Hathaway) and bank heist version of the Joker. Medicom also makes the original Bat suit from Batman Begins. (more…)
Not to be out done by Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts reveal yesterday, Medicom put up images of their upcoming Harley and The Joker. This will set you back approx. 5,800 Yen each (about $53 USD). (more…)
