Check out Square Enix Play Arts Kai "Batman: Arkham Knight" 1/7 Arkham Knight action figure

Pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles

Arkham Knight is a new villain in Gotham and an antithetical version of Batman. He wears a militaristic Batsuit and an Arkham symbol on his chest. He is one of the main antagonists in Batman: Arkham Knight and seems to have an unknown connection with the Dark Knight. The Arkham Knight dons a militaristic version of the bat-suit meant to mock Batman's appearance. The inside of his helmet gives him a heads up display of his troops throughout Gotham and the ears relay his commands to his troops. By using the Arkham symbol on his chest plate he inflicts psychological warfare on Batman reminding him of the past Arkham events. The chest plate also acts as a countermeasure to the Batclaw.

Check out Square Enix Play Arts Kai Arkham Knight action figure from "Batman: Arkham Knight". From Square Enix: With mechanical armor and army fatigues, this figure shows off a wide range of different realistic textures. During sculpting we paid special attention to keeping a sharp silhouette all around. His helmet, that looks very similar to that of the BATMAN, has a translucent visor. There are two interchangeable helmet pieces: one to recreate his default appearance, and a second one painted so as to give off a glowing eye effect. Other accessories include: a sniper rifle, two handguns, and three interchangeable hands to allow for a variety of action poses.

I'm beginning to appreciate the figures that Square Enix are putting out in their Play Arts Kai series. I already got the Square Enix Play Arts Kai "Batman: Arkham Origins" Batman 10.5-inch action figure (reviewed in my toy blog HERE and HERE) as well as the Square Enix Play Arts Kai "Batman: Arkham Origins" Deathstroke 10-inch (25.5 cm) action figure review HERE, HERE and HERE so this one's going on the pre-order list as well :)

And here are some pictures / images of Arkham Knight found on the web for comparison. Certainly someone to be taken very seriously and looks to be a worthy adversary to Batman.
