Funko POP! Arkham Knight

I don't play video games, but really love this character from the popular Arkham Knight, and do have a modest sub-collection of vinyl Batman figures I really love. This Arkham Knight is a vinyl figure, not a bobble head like the POP! Vision I reviewed in September- I'm unsure if all the Marvel POP! vinyls are bobble heads, and the DC characters are proper vinyl figures, but that seems to be the case among what I've collected.

Arkham Knight's secret identity is Jason Todd, the second Robin killed by the Joker back in Death In the Family, 1988. Todd has assumed the identity of the Red Hood in the past, another Batman nemesis and murderous vigilante. The Arkham Knight character is new to the Batman canon, created specifically for the 2015 video game by Rocksteady Productions and DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns. I love the futuristic paramilitary look of this character!

More Later- Make It FUN!
