We're on the cusp of enjoying the next great Batman game, but if you're a big, big fan of the last one, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Square Enix has some mighty fine action figures you might be interested in.

We saw Batman and Joker in their highly articulated, nicely sculpted polyvinyl chloride at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, but it looks like we won't be able to repeatedly pose these mortal enemies in their Arkham Asylum forms until early 2012.

Square Enix's Play Arts Kai action figures based on Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Asylum are due in early 2012 and are currently available for pre-order through places like Big Bad Toy Store.

Well these look much better. The original photos I've seen for these two figures was pretty awful. Especially Batman, that cape was just horrible in all the convention photos and such. These photos show the cape looking MUCH better. Not perfect, but good enough that I'm now tempted to get one.
