Mezco’s One:12Collective line of figures is some top-notch stuff. Loads of accessories, lots of articulation, and some of the best flesh tone plastic I’ve ever seen. Now one of the greatest one-off Batman comics is joining the line.
Batman, as seen in the Elseworlds story ‘Gotham By Gaslight’, is now up for preorder!
The shipping window for this figure is between January and March of 2022. Pre-orders are available now through Mezco’s website. Batman will set you back $115 with a non-refundable deposit of $28.75 is due upfront.

The first time I learned about ‘Gotham By Gaslight’ was in Comics Scene magazine #10. This particular issue covered a lot of horror-themed comics, including Hellraiser and Mr. Monster. What is arguably the first Elseworlds story featuring Batman was not kid-friendly, trust me.
That publication was great. The last page had a list of “upcoming” comic book movies with short descriptions. In issue #10, X-Men was listed with a similar plot to what we saw in the first film from FOX. That issue was published in 1989. To think that the story sat in limbo for about ten years…
‘Gotham By Gaslight’ eventually got an animated adaptation, but it doesn’t capture Mike Mignola’s style that made it such a standout. Check out the trailer below:
A video game adaptation was also in the works but was ultimately unfinished. There is test footage and some backstory available. I’ve linked the video below. There probably wouldn’t have been as much highflying action like we saw in the ‘Arkham’ games, but stalking the fog-filled streets of Gotham of the 1800s would’ve been cool.
Which other DC heroes and villains would you like to see get the One:12Collective treatment? Personally, I’d pay a premium for a Lobo VS Santa box set! Let us know in the comments.
