Square Enix's Wild West Batman may be the best Batman of all

Square Enix’s Variant Play Arts Kai line has produced some terrific-looking action figures -- we only recently spotlighted Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Stormtrooper releases -- but this Wild West Batman may be my favorite to date.

Part of the Batman Timeless series teased at New York Comic Con that will include Spartan Batman, Medieval Batman and Steampunk Batman, it's like a glorious return to DC Comics' Elseworlds titles. Standing more than 10 inches tall, Wild West Batman is ridiculously detailed -- ornate, even -- with a tattered cape, chaps, boots, a grapnel gun (with holster), tomahawk and, best of all, a cowboy hat with its own little Bat-ears.

Arriving in July, it's available for preorder for $120 from Square Enix and retailers like Entertainment Earth and Amazon.
