Sideshow Collectibles and Medicom Toys are ready to start taking your money for next Christmas. You know, you might as well look forward and to the future when the pandemic has subsided… hopefully. A certainly unexpected choice to turn into a figure, available for pre-order now is the Knightfall Batman MAFEX figure.

In case you weren’t aware, MAFEX figures are highly articulated, high quality figures made by Medicom Toys. Last we heard from Medicom and Sideshow, they wowed us with pre-orders for The Dark Knight Returns Batman and Robin. This time, however, they’ve chosen Jean-Paul Valley’s short stint as Batman, otherwise known as Knightfall Batman. In the Knightfall arc, following Batman’s incapacitation by Bane, Jean-Paul Valley took up the mantle of the Bat and created his own head-turning costume. It’s a little gaudy for my taste, but I suppose it looked good on ’90s comic book covers. Yes, that Batman has now been honored with his own MAFEX figure. Though I’ve never been a fan of the Knightfall Batman, it doesn’t mean his MAFEX figure will be lacking.

Take a look at these photos:

Gorgeous as always. I think almost gasped when I saw the pose of his cape fluttering around him. That’s like the most classic Batman pose ever. Once again, it looks like we’re getting a beautiful cloth cape filled with poseable wires. I’m a sucker for those things, man.

Here’s the fine print:

The Knightfall Batman MAFEX Collectible Figure features:

  • Two (2) head parts, with mask and without mask
  • Dynamic poses are possible with a cloth cape
  • Various actions can be reproduced by attaching various wrist parts
  • Comes with a movable figure stand

Product Size Height: 6.29″ (159.77 mm) | *
Dimensional Weight 0.00 lbs (0 kg) *
* Size and weight are approximate values.

Available for pre-order now, the Knightfall Batman MAFEX figure will begin shipping 4th quarter of 2021, between October to December. You can pre-order here. The figure will set you back about $99, but considering what you’re getting, it may be worth it, especially if you miss this Batman, champion of ’90s aesthetic.
