Square Enix’s Variant Play Arts Kai Batman figurine designed by Tetsuya Nomura will be available this July, the company has announced. The figurine is up for pre-order now at stores such as AmiAmi and Rakuten.
The Tetsuya Nomura Batman’s dimensions are approximately W317 x D176 x H306mm. The package includes the following parts:
- Main figure
- Optional arm parts x2
- Optional side arms x2
- Optional thigh parts x2
- Optional leg parts x6
- Optional hand parts x2
Last year, Nomura revealed to Siliconera that the concept for his Batman figurine came from a cancelled videogame project at Square Enix that didn’t pan out. Nomura also suggested that the design for the Batman figurine predates the design of the Keyblade armour in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and actually influenced those designs.
“Actually, to be honest, the project that never got off the ground was done before Kingdom Hearts was conceived,” Nomura said to us. “It might be the opposite—the design from that early project influenced Kingdom Hearts and armor design in that series.”
