Look What The Creator Of Kingdom Hearts Has Done To Batman

This is what happens when Final Fantasy character designer and Kingdom Hearts boss Tetsuya Nomura gets his hands on the Caped Crusader.

Part of Square Enix’s DC Comics Variant Play Arts Kai line of re-imagined figures — the first of a series designed by Nomura — this Batman is almost more of a Bahamutman, all wings and claws and sharp angles. It’s certainly above and beyond any Batman I’ve seen. 

Nomura’s Batman (really needs a proper name) will be on display at the Square Enix booth at San Diego Comic-Con today through Sunday. Eventually they’ll sell it.

A summary of the G4 toy line

2010: They’re so…small???

2011: Only one pose but we get lots of different characters. This will go on through the whole line…right?

2012: Pony wedding. Finally a boy pony and a castle but…what’s with his hair?

2013: Twilight gets wings so we’re all forced to buy more brushables of her. We all thought we were getting crystal ponies but they just switched their eye shape a little. wow.

2014: Rainbow Power= fling chunks of tinsel in everyone’s hair. Cardboard in playsets.

2015: Slap cutie marks all over everything but at least give em a nice castle.

2016: Explore Equestria= Everything is see-through and lights up.

Unfortunately, I can’t find any pics of her and me on my computer…but here’s my mom’s (FIRST PLACE) G4 Granny Smith cosplay from MLP Fair 2014. This was her first cosplay ever and first year in the costume contest. She wants to go with me again and dress up in 2015. I’m going to be G3 Lily Lightly with a light up ballgown and horn and she told me she wants to be G3 Scootaloo with a SCOOTER! And I thought my costume idea was extravagant! 



The first time I had my picture with Darren, I just went in for the hug. I touched his tummy. I’m pretty sure that when we were stepping out of the hug, I thanked him, and kept my hand on his stomach for as long as I could get away with. He’s so beautiful.

Then for the second picture, I wanted a ‘silly’ one, and I know I’ve seen plenty of pictures where Darren points at whoever he’s with, so I went up to him and said something like, “can we pose where you’re pointing at me and I’m pointing at you?” and we pointed like that and first of all we looked at each other, I looked in his eyes while he pulled that face, then he turned to the camera and I followed suit, and I got this picture.

I was shaking after I had the pictures done. He is so beautiful, and he’s still taller than me (only just though look at us omg) fuck looking back at it now I’m just crying it was so amazing.

Max [Adler] was asked who his favourite person to work with on Glee. He said it’s hard to answer, but all the scenes with Chris were amazing. They really hit home reading them and he was so excited to be able to get to work and shoot them. Chris is such an amazing actor and he was always really present and in the moment, working with him was wonderful.
