It looks like Bandai is going to continue adding more western (US) based characters and licenses to their SH Figuarts line. (The first being the upcoming AvP figures.)
Batman is certainly this kind of character that you'd want to kick a line like this off with.
I'm interested to see the final figure as well as what other characters they have lined up.
