HOT TOYS’ EPIC NEW BATMAN™ FIGURE IS INSPIRED BY THE DARK KNIGHT

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. But everything changes with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Bruce Wayne has to join forces with old and new allies, and put on the mask one last time to finish what he started — to become Gotham’s hero once more.

This new quarter-scale collectible is meticulously crafted with exceptional attention to detail. Drawing inspiration from Christian Bale’s performance as Batman/Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, the figure stands approximately 18.5″ (47cm tall), and features two different masked head sculpts (one with LED light-up eyes, and one with adjustable moving eyes) with removable and interchangeable face sculpts to allow collectors to showcase different facial expressions. The figure also features an unmasked Bruce Wayne head sculpt, a highly poseable 1/4 scale body, a finely tailored and ultra-detailed Batsuit with miniature carbon fiber-effect details, and a wide array of gadgets and accessories. 

Furthermore, Hot Toys and Sideshow have announced an exclusive Special Edition version which includes an additional Batman cowl accessory as bonus item for fans and collectors.

1/4 scale Batman body with over 32 points of articulation
