Off late, the toy community have been buzzing with images of a soft goods Batman. This figure seems to be inspired by the Batman from the 1989 cult classic Gotham By Gaslight graphic novel. If you guys are wondering if this is made by Mezco Toyz, you are wrong. It looks to be a third party soft goods version Batman from a company called Noir Toyz. Now we don’t know anything at all about this company and this seems to be the company’s first foray into the 1/12 scale soft goods action figure market and they have named this line as the Hero Series.
Now according to my Exclu team members in the States, no news of pre-orders yet for this figure but my local supplier, EMT&R Anime Service in Malaysia have started taking pre-orders of the figure. Looks like there will be a normal and deluxe version of this Batman. Below are details of the product :
The Great Detective of Gotham is Back.
A 19th Century Dark Knight, he is a genius, a master of martial arts, an expert detective, and a guardian of Gotham. The Dark Knight is the first piece from Noirtoyz’s upcoming 1/12 Hero series Action Figures. The whole body is about 17cm tall and has 28 movable joints. Real fabric material is matched with individually designed superhero body, with shapeable cape faithful to the style and image of the Dark Knight.

We will update you guys if we have more news regarding this figure.
