Wow, someone got Nicholson's likeness rights?  My understanding was that was an incredibly difficult task and therefore the reason why there are so few Nicholson Joker figures (the Hot Toys one that goes for several hundred dollars being the only one that comes to mind).  I don't collect this scale either but hopefully this means that other companies will be able to give us a Nicholson Joker as well.

Beast Kingdom has released official images and details for their new 8" Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures based on Batman and Joker from the 1989 movie.

Batman
A cult classic, 1989 saw the unleashing of Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’ to moviegoers who were until then only used to the camp 1960’s television show. A new dark and otherworldly take on the character introduced fans to a new and broodier superhero. Played by the enigmatic Micheal Keaton, 1989’s Batman brought to screen a troubled yet determined character that was ready to sacrifice it all to save Gotham city!

 


Beast Kingdom’s ‘Entertainment Experience Brand’ proudly enters the world of Tim Burton’s Batman with the release of a highly articulable DAH-056 1989 Batman. An action figure ready for the ultimate in posing possibilities with its 20 points of articulation, the DAH-056 gives fans the iconic suit using PVC to recreate the rubberized look. Coupled with the usage of real fabric and wiring for the cape, collectors can enjoy a highly detailed take on the classic design. Over 30 years ago, the classic bat logo was plastered across billboards the world over and then proudly displayed on Batman’s armored chest, it is also here recreated in all its glory. In addition to a highly detailed suit, the set comes with a host of weapons and replaceable mouth sculpts to truly give fans their perfect posing scenario. Grappling guns, batarangs and more are all on full display.

A near perfect rendition of the superhero, 1989’s Batman is an icon of comic book movie renditions. Don’t forget to also add the 1989 DAH-032 Joker to your collection to complete your set.

Joker
A cult classic, 1989 saw the unleashing of Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’ to moviegoers who were until then only used to the camp 1960’s television shows. A new dark and otherworldly take on the character introduced fans to a new arch-nemesis in Jack Nicholson’s Joker! His wild and manic depiction of the character quickly won him applause and cemented this version as one of the most iconic Jokers in cinematic history.

Man o man . Keaton Batman, Nicolson Joker, mirror Spock... 2022 is going to be really expensive for me... and it has not even arrived yet. I really gotta shake this collecting addiction or I'll be broke by this time next year. Does anyone know of a TCA (Toy Collectors Anonymous) meeting coming up soon?

These look okay.  Not loving how the knee and elbow joints look on Batman.  Makes me think though - when is MacFarlane going to get around to these?  I feel like this is a no-brainer for him and he's done so many other more obscure Batman figures already.  It would be nice not to have to spend $100+ just to get a 1989 Batman when a $25 MacFarlane would be plenty good.  Wondering if this version of Batman just doesn't really interest him.

Feel the same way.   While these do look pretty good but for over $100 per figure?   These would have to be outstanding.

Ok what am I my missing here?

This is like one of those puzzles from Highlights magazine ( if that's not dating myself) where you compare the two pics and circle the differences.  But with this one, I just dont see them. Anyone care to enlighten me?

they widen his head/cowl, and the "eyebrows" are not as arched. but yeah took me a while to spot the differences myself
