Buffs of the 2008 film The Dark Knight and the Batman franchise as a whole have been looking forward to this release with bated breath. Now, finally, Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys have let forth this collaborative work featuring Bruce Wayne as Batman, the Batman Armory and Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s butler, best friend and father figure. The Armory, where the superhero stores his state-of-the-art gadgets and weaponry, is crucial to Batman’s ability to carry out his life’s calling. That makes three major pieces that make up this set, and true Batman and Dark Knight heads won’t want to miss out on it.
Apart from the usual meticulous detail characteristic of Sideshow and Hot Toy features, this set lights up and comes with fully functioning doors and shelves. Cast in 1/6 scale, this product comes with a true-to-screen Batman figure that showcases the patented Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS), and brings with it four newly sculpted interchangeable expressions. He also comes with a painstakingly crafted fabric costume, replete with armor based on the costume design from the film, and with a wide array of finely sculpted weapons and accessories. Academy Award winner Sir Michael Caine also makes an appearance in 12-inch figurine form as Alfred Pennyworth, and stands out with a finely tailored fabric costume showing striking and nuanced design. We also have a set that includes just Batman and the Armory, viewable here, and a DC 1/6 Scale Series Batman if you’re just digging the 12-inch figure, which you can see here. But make sure you make your way down to click on the photo below to check out the most elaborate Dark Knight set offered so far from Sideshow and Hot Toys!
