It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review
This week, we're looking at the Figure-rise Standard Amplified Batman
model kit from Bandai
. Yep, Bandai
is doing Batman model kits now. I was very surprised too when the solicitations started to pop up on all the usual toy store websites, wondering if it was going to be a vehicle, a figure, etc... When the first pictures were revealed, I decided to pick it up, since I've always liked to build Gundam
robots and other model kits, and also collect Batman
figures. Two birds, one stone!
It was a very simple and straight-forward build
. All I used were some pliers
and a modeling file
to shave off the tiny bits after cutting. No glue or anything else needed. Just like the Gundam
model kits, it was all very easy to assemble. First the head, the chest part, right arm, left arm, the legs and the waist part and then, the cape. It took about 3-4 hours
to build the entire thing.
The final result, though, looks pretty freaking great! That is a nice, very articulated Batman
figure. Just like the other Bandai
model kits, the figure is super light, but can be posed in all sorts of positions. There are tons of details all over the suit, which looks like a high-tech version of it.
is separated in 4 different parts which can be folded to look 'closed' or unfolded for the 'open' look.
on his chest can be removed to be used as a batarang
