Tempting. Will need to hear/see more in regards to their plans and commitment to the line before jumping in though.

Nice! Glad they're focusing on more 90's animated series statues.

I missed out when the DST PVC line of BTAS came out and would take too much to catch up. And i kinda wanted to pick up the Koto Batman but wasn't sure if it was a one-off or if they were going to continue the series. Now that we know, i think i'm all in for these. I hope the bases are better than the ones shown. Batman had a nice base so the rest should match.

These are really small compared to the Diamond Select PVC statues. For roughly the same prices, you might as well go with that line if you want multiple characters and not just the "popular" ones.

Edit: Just checked, and Batman is still available for close to MSRP on Amazon and eBay.

Kotobukiya's looks 10x better though.

1) I got rid of all of my Kotos.

2) There are many more characters in the Diamond Gallery line, and Koto is moving like molasses on this license.

I just got the DST Harley Quinn 25th anniversary statue with Harley and Batman, and the quality is lacking. The right hand holding the gun was broken, some spots of sloppy paint and Batman doesn’t sit flush with the base. Looks OK at a distance, but Koto quality and details are far superior. DST does have more offerings from the Timmverse.

I bought the DST Batman STINKS Harley for $30 and think I overpaid. I really like the design but it is definitely more of a cheap PVC instead just being inexpensive. Their Premier resin line is great if you can pick them up for under $100

Koto might be slower, but their products are still a million times better than those glorified paperweights.

Quality over quantity.
