* As always, it's nice to see that the spikes on the gauntlets are straight and neat. Bale's Batman has two rows of them on his costume and the green paint makes them look incredibly wicked!
* The cape is just a simple plastic cape, no cloth, but it's well sculpted and hangs down sleekly, not interfering too much with Batman's articulation.
* The articulation is good, and that's been a pretty consistent plus on this line. These are all sturdy, durable action figures and my guess is that a normal kid could play with these with little to no fear of breakage. For collectors, Batman looks great on display and takes some excellent poses. He has a nice range of motion in most spots, too.
* The grapple gun is included here, just like with the standard figure, though rather than gold it's a really bright yellow. I guess that makes it seem more Joker-like? It's a nice sculpt and since this is such a bizarre figure, I'm ok with the color.
* The same goes for the batarangs, though these things are definitely oversized. An alternate hand holding them would have probably been better, though they do look fine with this exaggerated costume.
* Included are the standard collectible card and the standard disc stand. They're nice extras and I'm always glad to have them with every release.
* Batman comes with the legs for a Jokerized Bane. Weird, huh? I mean, what a strange concept. Jokerized Bane? Especially using the Tom Hardy Bane. As of my writing this review, only the Jokerized Batman and Joker from this series have been revealed, so who knows how a presumably Jokerized Scarecrow and Two-Face will be released.
* The Christian Bale cowl is really different from many other Batman cowls, in a way that's hard to describe. It has less detail and shows less of the face, so this looks more like an art piece than a Jokerized Batman. I do wish there was a more significant contrast between the skin visible through the cowl and the cowl itself.
This guy kind of counts as both Batman and the Joker, doesn't he? For more of Batman check out The Dark Knight Gallery. For more of the Joker check out the Joker's Funhouse.
