Batman Gets An Awesome Retro-Inspired Throwback Figure Thanks To Mezco

Posted by August 11, 2017 Comment

Batman is getting what is arguably one of the coolest-looking figures we have ever seen of him with the new One:12 Collective Ascending Knight Batman from Mezco Toyz. Holy hell, this thing is rad. The fact that they are doing three, one from each era, is even cooler.

Every Knight has a beginning and the One:12 Collective’s Batman starts here. —Ascending Knight is part of a trilogy: A beginning, a middle and an end. The Ascending Knight is Batman in his first year; designed to be contemporary but still have a first appearance feel. This is the Batman of 10 years ago, as he just began his war on crime.

At the start of his crime-fighting career Bruce Wayne is still working things out, finding what works and what doesn’t. Some of his tech and gear is still a bit unfinished and raw. His Bat Suit is bulky, showing that he has not yet fine-tuned it.

Of course the design pays homage to Batman as he first appeared in Detective Comics. The shape of his cowl, the shorter gloves and the smaller symbol on his chest are all inspired by his original debut in the comics

Each One:12 Collective —Ascending Knight figure is packaged in a deluxe, collector friendly box, designed with collectors in mind, there are no twist ties for easy in and out of package display.

I mean, there is not much else to say. This is, if not one of the coolest-looking figures I have seen, certainly one of the coolest Batman figures. I don’t even like this character and I want one of these. He will be available in January, but if you want it you better grab it now on preorder, this one is going to sell out for sure.
