We concur that Batman has a lot of similarity with ninjas. Portraying Wayne-san in medieval Japan, as a sword-wielding cape crusader almost seem too appropriate. The animated feature film Batman Ninja, directed by Junpei Mizusaki and produced by Warner Bros., was released in stateside in digital format on April 24, 2018 and theatrically in Japan in June 15 in the same year. It is worth noting that the American and Japanese versions have a slight variation in screenplay.
But we are not here to talk about the film. We are here to talk about these two awesome Tamashii Nations S.H.Figuarts action figures of the protagonist and the antagonist based on the movie. Now, Bat as a ninja is not for everyone, but if you are a super fan, you will want both the Tamashii Nations S.H.Figuarts Ninja Batman and Joker Action Figures.
Both are 6-inch scale collectibles based on the movie with Bat featuring an articulated build, the requisite cape, along with an interchangeable head sculpt, five pairs of interchangeable hands, a Katana sword with scabbard, and a pair of Kunais (throwing knives). As for the Feudal Japan’s Ninja Clown Prince of Crime, it features an interchangeable head, four pairs of interchangeable, a pair of fans and a Katana sword with scabbard. The figures stand around 6.5 inches tall and are made from ABS and PVC materials.
Sadly, neither figure comes with a mini diorama, but hey, at least the prices aren’t bank-breaking and don’t need to wait forever for it to land at your doorstep. Speaking of which, you can find Tamashii Nations S.H.Figuarts Ninja Batman Action Figure and Tamashii Nations S.H.Figuarts Ninja Batman: The Joker Action Figure on Amazon going for $42.93 and $39.47, respectively.
