Forget the butt thing, Batman is still the master of breaking the toy internet. The Caped Crusader is at again thanks to NECA! Deep down, we all knew that NECA wouldn’t mold a 7″ Batman figure just to paint it purple, right? Right? We all knew… I bought two NES figures anyway. But now? No painting required!
Images of this started circulating last night, and then a full-on eBay listing appeared today! It couldn’t have seemed more fake if it tried. The user was brand new. It was “WarnerBrosHomeEntertainment” but it had zero feedback. And never mind that it’s on eBay first! I wasn’t sure, but I forked over money. And then? Then it got removed from eBay! (Buyers were alerted that folks that paid for the item should still get theirs, but to contact eBay if it does not arrive).
But NECA took to Twitter to verify it’s authenticity and assure us that there will be other outlets for collectors to pick this bad boy up. It’s two days of good news to me – the best Spidey costume in Jumbo and now the best Batman costume in 7″? I’m good… I just don’t know what to do with this second NES Batman. Maybe I’ll paint it white – Arctic Keaton Batman, baby!
