Terry McGinnis steals Bruce Wayne's high-tech Batsuit, but a sense of justice and a great purpose keep him inside the suit and fighting to make Gotham City's dark future a bit brighter. 52 episodes, two special features, and one movie, now in beautiful high definition across six discs.
Relive (or discover for the first time) the definitive versions of Rocksteady's acclaimed Arkham trilogy games, with fully remastered and updated visuals as well as all the post-launch content. The prequel Arkham Origins isn't included in this pack, but that doesn't make this package any less ideal for anyone who hasn't played through the games yet.
This one is among the priciest picks on our list, but the six-pack of McFarlane figures based on Batman's most famous big-screen appearances is amazing. Whether you're a collector yourself or are looking to impress the biggest follower of the Caped Crusader in your life, these 7" scale figures are among the most impressive DC items we've seen recently.
Like the previous present, this complete comic book box, containing eight hardcovers plus a special edition of Batman: The Killing Joke, is stunning. Unless the person you're gifting this beauty to had secretly bought these hardcovers, you're likely to become his favorite new member of the Bat-Family. This is a compelling re-examination of Batman's iconic rogues gallery presented in the best possible way.
There's a fantastic LEGO set for each occasion, and Batman has plenty to choose from, but we've picked the iconic Tumbler Batmobile from the Dark Knight trilogy because it's the design that looks the most impressive in LEGO form. It also comes with the Batman himself and Scarecrow, making this tribute to Batman Begins even more complete.
