Hot Toys Introduces Batman: Arkham City 1/6th Scale Batman Collectible Figure
Hot Toys has officially unveiled its Batman: Arkham City: 1/6th scale Batman Collectible Figure with a selection of images and a pre-order announcement.
On the Hot Toys FaceBook page, Batman fans can get their first good look at the incredible figure, which should be around 12” tall. Beautifully sculpted and highly articulated, the figure features a newly sculpted body and newly-designed cowl with two interchangeable lower face pieces, allowing owners to display the Dark Knight in either of his emotional states; brooding and furious.
Five interchangeable right hands and four left hands will be included, along with detailed weapons like the Batarang, explosive gel dispenser, Line Launcher and Grapnel Gun with an interchangeable tip. What’s most impressive about the figure, however, is the Batsuit. While the figure features tons of articulation, the rubbery bodysuit is a single piece, hiding all joints and seams while moving and bending with the figure in an extremely realistic way. High-quality materials and design like this are why Hot Toys’ figures are more than just toys, and should be looked at more like collectable pieces of 3D art.
No price has been announced for the figure yet, but previous 1/6 scale figures from Hot Toys have retailed at over $250, making this a pretty major investment for a pound or two of plastic. Once they hit the secondary market, though, that $250 price tag might not look so bad, so interested collectors should jump on this gorgeous figure as soon as possible.
