Friday's here, and we've got the links to help you wrap your work week.
Injustice Gods Among Us
Having spent enough to support a small child on Bandai's S.H. Figuarts action figure line, I was a bit relieved to see that Bluefin Tamashii Nations' Toy Fair 2014 booth was relatively relaxed in terms of never-before-seen figures. My relief didn't last too long, however, as I took in the big items from the show. Not only did we get a second, more fleshed-out look at the upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us Batman, we also got to scope out a Shippuden-style Naruto and an articulated Michael Jackson in his Moonwalker getup.
Make your Monday brighter with a look at today's links.
This past summer at San Diego Comic-Con, Tamashii Nations teased S.H. Figuarts based on NetherRealm's DC fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us with but a sign. Now at New York Comic Con 2013, Batman has broken the silence with a blank 6" prototype demonstrating the upcoming line's precision sculpting and articulation. It's still early to tell just how posable, colorful and accessorized this line will be based on a lone unpainted Batman toy, but given the die-cast and resin construction, detailed sculpts and accessory-packed nature associated of the S.H. Figuarts line, Batman fans who're cool with his Injustice duds can probably expect a something comparable to what they've seen before from Bandai with other licenses. You can get a look at the upcoming 2014 release after the cut.
If you're scrapping your other video game systems for a PlayStation 4 in mid-November, you can rest assured that superheroes punching each other to kingdom come will still be available to you.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is coming to the PS4, along with pretty much every other system, as an "Ultimate Edition," which means it'll include all the downloadable content from the original version of the game, in November.
