Hot Toys To Release Two New ‘Batman Begins’ Collectibles

by Gary Catig

There have been several versions of Batman to appear on the big screen. Most recently, Ben Affleck donned the cape and cowl in the Snyder cut of Justice League and Robert Pattinson is set to take up the role in the next DCEU film, The Batman (2022). However, Hot Toys drew inspiration from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy for their next set of collectibles.

From Batman Begins is the 1/6 scale Batman. The figure is skillfully crafted based on Christian Bale’s appearance. It will come with a hand-painted head sculpt of Bale as Bruce Wayne and a masked head sculpt with three interchangeable lower face-plates with different expressions. In addition, it will have a newly developed specialized 1/6 scale body, a finely tailored Batsuit with cape, and highly detailed replicas of the crime fighter’s iconic gadgets and weapons.

A full list of the figure’s features include:

– An ultra-realistic, hand-painted likeness of Christian Bale as Batman/ Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins
– Alternative Batman masked head sculpt, with three (3) interchangeable lower faces capturing Christian Bale’s facial expressions
– A newly developed body with 30 points of articulation portraying Batman’s muscular physique
– Multiple interchangeable gloved hands for a variety of posing and display options
– A tailored Batsuit and cape
– One utility belt with buckle
– An interchangeable fully equipped utility belt with buckle
– A pair of forearm gauntlets
– A pair of boots
– Two Batarangs on Batman’s belt clip (removable)
– One bomb
– One set of full climbing gear including harness and belt
– One balaclava
– One communicator and palmtop computer
– A specially designed figure stand with character nameplate

Hot Toys couldn’t help creating the Batmobile from Batman Begins. After all, the Dark Knight needs a slick ride too. The Batmobile tumbler possesses a sliding roof panel, articulated breaking flaps, rotating rubber tires and multiple LED light-up functions.

The full list of features can be found below:

– A highly-detailed and accurate 1/6 vehicle inspired by the Batmobile as seen in Batman Begins
– Scaled to fit with the 1/6th scale Batman Collectible Figure
– Detailed paint application on the interior
– A mechanical design including a detailed cockpit and opening panel on the roof of the vehicle
– Articulated breaking flaps
– Rotating rubber tires
– 10 LED light-up points throughout the vehicle (white light, battery operated)

The Batman Begins 1/6 Batman Figure, and the 1/6 scale Batmobile will be highly sought after for any DC Comics collection.
