Metal Gear Solid isn't the only series getting some action figure love from Square Enix. The Rocksteady Batman games are also marching in the Play Arts Kai toy line parade.
To celebrate the recent release of Arkham City, Batman and Joker figures made their debut. Next in the set comes a battle armor Batman and Harley Quinn -- you can check out their action poses in the gallery below. The battle armor Batman reminds me of those goofy action figure-exclusive costumes that manufacturers concocted to sell more merch, a sentiment share by Jonathan Tubbs of Tomopop. Then there's Harley, looking positively slutty. Her original skin-tight spandex suit from The Animated Series was a lot sexier, I think.
But never mind that! There's one more character rounding out the lot -- Scarface! Scarface has always been one of my favorite Batman villains. The manifestation of a psycho ventriloquist's id inside a puppet modeled after Al Capone? Brilliant!
The regular Batman and Joker go for $59.99 each, and I assume the next figures will run similarly (Scarface comes bundled with Harley) once they're released in May. That may sound like a lot of cheddar, but Scarface is worth it.
