Batman DC Armory Series Action Figure by DC Direct


Quién dijo que aún los superhéroes no requieren ayuda extra, contra enemigos especialmente poderosos y feroces ???... Bienvenidos a mi mundo DC !!!... 

Si bien esta no es la primera pieza de colección de DC que poseo y he publicado (pueden echar un vistazo a mi Batmobile Tumbler), sí es la primera de varias figuras de acción del cómic que desfilarán por esta pasarela virtual. 

Sin embargo, debo aclarar que, si alguien busca aquí figuras clásicas o tradicionales, me temo que está buscando en el lugar equivocado.

Lo mío son los personajes menos conocidos o las versiones no tradicionales de los personajes clásicos o los universos/realidades alternativos. 


Si alguno de mis visitantes es un amante a ultranza de lo convencional, le sugiero buscar en otras fuentes, pues la experiencia de visitar mi blog puede resultarle muy chocante =PPPPP. 

En la edición No. 630 de Batman, este caballero nocturno debe enfrentarse a una amenaza conocida: Scarecrow (Espantapájaros) con una "pequeña" diferencia, este archienemigo a mutado para convertirse en el monstruoso Scarebeast. 

Es allí cuando Batman debe enfundarse en esta imponente armadura, para presentar una batalla más justa y equilibrada.
 

Esta es una magnífica pieza de 7 1/2" de alto, con un moldeado y detalle que son incluso más de lo que se espera normalmente de DC Direct y fue esculpida por Jonathan Matthews

Capítulo aparte merecen su nivel de articulación (22 puntos) que es, hasta donde yo sé, inédito en DCD y su trabajo de pintura en colores metalizados/perlados, con un novedoso escarchado en la parte gris del traje, que añade un encanto particular. 

Cuenta con una linda base serigrafiada para su exhibición y un par de máscaras adicionales (una de ellas "marcada" por Scarebeast). En otras palabras, otro duro golpe a mis debilitadas finanzas por parte de DC, pero que recibo con gusto... HA !!!

ENGLISH

Who says that even superheroes don’t require extra help, against specially powerful and fierce enemies ???... Welcome to my DC world !!!.. 

While this is not the first DC piece in my collection that i’ve published (you can take a look on my Batmobile Tumbler), it’s the first of several action figures from comic that will parade into this virtual gangway. 

However, I must clarify that, if someone is looking for classic or traditional figures here, I’m afraid is looking in the wrong place.

My business is the lesser known characters or the nontraditional versions of classic characters or the alternate universes/realities. 


If any of my visitors is a staunch lover of the conventional, I suggest to search in other sources, since the experience of visiting my blog could be very shocking =PPPPP. 

In issue # 630 of Batman, this Dark Knight must face a known threat: Scarecrow with a "little" difference, this arch-enemy has mutated to become the monstrous Scarebeast. 

That’s when Batman must wear this awesome armor, to present a more fair and balanced battle.

This is a magnificent piece of 7 1/2" high, with a molding process and detail that is even more than what is normally expected from DC Direct and was sculpted by Jonathan Matthews. 


Chapter aside deserves its level of articulation (22 points) that is, as far as I know, unprecedented in DCD and its paint job metallic/pearled, with a newfangled frosted finishing in the grey parts of the armor, which adds a particular charm. 

It has a nice silkscreen job in the display base and a pair of masks (one of them "marked" by Scarebeast). In other words, another blow to my weakened finances by DC, but one I received with pleasure... LOL !!!

It doesn't look like it can stand straight...so how remind me of Robocop. Anyway batman is the only Super hero who do not have any super power but just gadgets to help him. so it make sense. I doubt this suit can matched with Ironman. LOL

oohhhhh... he can stands straight, but i pose him in those ways intentionally, to show his level of articulation... he could looks like Robocop (a lil’ tardy & heavy), but as he has to battle with a mutant beast, this armor must giv to Batman extra agility =PPPP... hehe Batman could b only human, but Superman said somewhere bout him: "he’s the most dangerous superheroe..." there must b a reason for that affirmation... & Batman (Bruce Wayne) as Ironman (Tony Stark) hav their own megacorps, so i think Batman could b, for sure, the perfect match for Ironman... =PPPPPPPP

This is like the Ironman type of Batman. I like characters with armour suit like Appleseed as well and man this version of Batman looks awesome.

chrismandesign said...

hehe... i didn’t think in Ironman when i get this action figure, but now that u & LEon mention that, well, it could be... the thing is that, not always Batman needs an armor to face his foes, so in this special case (his battle against Scarebeast) must point out that this beast is a "hard cookie to break"... uhu Appleseed, i love those characters too & the 3D animations of the 2 movies, my favorites OFC: Deunan & Briaerius... i’m absolutely in agreement with u Dennis, this armored figure is awesome !!!

interesting collection you got there=) i am sure you should be planning to get the latest Iron Man model=)

chrismandesign said...

hey !!! look what we got here ??? welcome fairuzaliayen... i’m glad that u liked my creatures... well, i would like to get a Kotobukiya movie version Ironman (cuz i can’t afford a Hot Toys version) but probably i would try first with something classic/rare, for example a Marvel Legends Ironman Series 1 or something like that... =)))
