The picture doesn't do justice to the wonder that is DC Direct's action figure of the armored, middle-aged Batman of Mark Waid and Alex Ross' epic Kingdom Come. The wings are articulated and span more than a foot. The paint job and sculpting are dead on and flawless, at least on the figure I got Saturday as an early Christmas gift. And you can't quite see in the photo just how perfect Batman's slightly nasty, slightly eager-to-brawl grin is. This thing looks like an Alex Ross illustration come to life.

Now if DCD could just do something about those damn stickers on the Kingdom Come Green Lantern figure...
