Jada Diecast Batman v Superman Armored Batman

A lifelong fan of the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel, I'm simultaneously more judicious about adding to the collection as years go by, and as excited to see new stuff as the next fan. While I feel fine about resisting the wave of merchandise beginning to drop at retail, these Superman v Batman diecast series by Jada were a curiosity I had to look into.

I was kind of surprised these were going for ten bucks at retail, which made me feel brave enough to take a chance on this armored fireplug of a 4" figure. I have a soft spot for representations of this type, including POP! Funko vinyls, and recently enjoyed a Kidrobot DC Vinyl Mini Flash and Green Arrow. I opted for the Armored Batman as one to try seeing as it was diecast metal, and while I loved photographing this Batman, he had some faults. There was no denying the expert styling of this figure, but his waist joint is a little loose for my taste, and as his legs are plastic, he's somewhat top heavy, causing problems staying upright if not on s very level surface. If the arms were articulated, one could position them back to distribute weight better, but alas they are static. This may not be an issue with the other, more slender figures, but he stands well enough in my glass detolf.
