NECA has had some success recently with replicas based in the Batman Universe and now they are expanding their offerings with the Batman (1989) grapnel launcher replica. Earlier this year, they announced a grapnel launcher replica from Batman: The Animated Series that had fans clamoring. Now, their latest offering has the same gadget, just from the film universe. Just like the announcement for the one from Batman: The Animated Series, this reveal is only a sneak peek as very few details have been revealed. The life-size replica measures seven inches long and features a foldable handle and motorized spool to retract the hook after firing. There is no word on pricing or release date at this time, but once details or preorders go live for the NECA Batman (1989) grapnel launcher replica, we will be back to update.
Stephanie had watched Batman movies and shows since she was a little girl, but didn’t read comics until 2017 when she discovered Batman’s proposal to Catwoman. She discovered the TBU Comics Podcast and devoured the episodes. When the call went out to find a temporary co-host to fill Stella’s shoes, Steph wasted no time in volunteering. The rest, they say, is history and Steph has been a co-host of the podcast since May 2018. She has since also become a writer of sales numbers and Batman merch articles for The Batman Universe. When she isn’t reading TBU comics, Steph is practicing her new career, voice acting. She also enjoys watching anime, playing games, or living her best life with her husband and two cats.
