NECA Announces Special Edition Michael Keaton/Blu-ray Batman Figure Pack

$_57

NECA announced a special edition Michael Keaton/Blu-ray Batman pack and put preorders up at ebay ($30):

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film that defined Batman for the modern generation — pick up the new Batman Diamond Luxe Blu-ray and get a bonus Batman action figure!

Made by NECA, Batman stands 7″ tall and features the likeness of Michael Keaton! The figure has over 25 points of articulation for great poses, plus removable cape, Batarang and Spear Gun accessories.

In 1989, director Tim Burton breathed new life into one of the most complex and intriguing characters in popular culture. Burton cast off the 1960s camp depiction of the Dark Knight and launched one of the most popular comic book film series ever. Tim Burton’s vision and Michael Keaton’s performance as the Caped Crusader combine perfectly to capture Gotham City’s sinister atmosphere and Batman’s brooding nature. Jack Nicholson stars in a memorable performance as the maniacal Joker and Kim Basinger is Vicki Vale, the beautiful and resourceful photojournalist desired by both men. Featuring songs by Prince and a score by Danny Elfman, Batman won the 1990 Oscar for Best Art Direction/Set Decoration. The new Diamond Luxe Two-Disc Edition includes brand-new bonus material: “Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster,” a look at the phenomenal marketing, extensive merchandising and franchise foresight that set the template for the next 25 years of tentpole pictures.

Items will be available to ship after 12/9/14.
