DC Direct and Mattel have put their respective action figure stamps on Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham Asylum and upcoming Batman: Arkham City games stateside, but for those who crave even more action figure goodness, Japan's Square Enix Play Arts Kai line has you covered with new Arkham Asylum figures of Batman and Joker coming early in 2012.Right now the imported toys are fetching pretty hefty preorder prices at sites like BBTS, with totals hovering around $60 a pop. Looking at the current Yen/USD conversion rate, $60 seems like a bit of a bargain, though. Square Enix's Japanese site is selling the figures for closer to $75. That's not a super tough pill to swallow for toy fanatics, but those who can't commit to that price tag can still appreciate photos of the toys in action.
