Published

on

Thanks to a couple of new photos by @Kopke from the Spring 2018 Miyajima Model Exhibition, we have our first look at the fully painted Yamaguchi Revoltech Batman. No word on when and where we will be able to find this figure yet, or even a cost associated with it. With a painted prototype being shown off though, it is a safe bet that we will learn more very soon.

Until then, check out the picture below!
