Nope, this isn’t a movie poster, these are the latest Batman collectibles from Hot Toys! I’ve seen a lot of Batman toys before but Hot Toys’ DX version is really amazing!
Batman’s face is so realistic, it even looks soft and not plastic-ky. The 1/6th scale DX version stands approximately 32 cm tall, with a movie accurate costume and has 32 points of articulation.
This deluxe version comes with two functional Batman heads. One head has the awesome Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) which is a brand new technique applies to Hot Toys MMSDX figures. Its special features include uniquely designed eyeballs with colored translucent iris, simultaneous positionable eyeball function which can be as natural as human eyes. The alternate head features the sonar vision device which lights up the eyes.
Package also includes three interchangeable unique faces (that you-dare-mess-with-me look is my favorite. Lol.), three sets of interchangeable posing hands, newly sculpted and developed Batman complex suit, weapons and accessories and a deluxe figure stand with LED lights. Cool! No price tag yet but this Batman figure will be released first quarter of 2010.
Aside from Penguin from Batman Returns, The Joker from the Dark Knight movie is my favorite villain. Both villains scare me. I also like Jack Nicholson but Heath Ledger as The Joker was so convincingly menacing and melancholic at the same time.
Hot Toys’ DX version of The Joker is really cool too! Also a 1/6th scale figure with 35 points of articulation, it is dressed in Gotham City police suit, hat, Gotham City cop badge and shoes, which The Joker wore for assassination scene in the movie. An M1 Garand Rifle is also included as a weapon.
The figure also comes with an additional costume movie-accurate Joker costume (overcoat, sport coat, vest, shirt, tie, pants, belt, socks and shoes, with grenades rig and suspenders), five pieces of grenades, knife, pistol and Joker cards, seven interchangeable posing hands and a deluxe figure stand with LED lights. Plus, there’s also an interchangeable and new make-up Joker head featured with Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) and colored Translucent Iris. Release date is on the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2009.
