About these figures…
“It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.” – Batman
In the wake of his parents’ murders, disillusioned heir Bruce Wayne travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. With the help of his trusted allies, Wayne returns to Gotham City, assumes a new persona along with a prototype armored suit and an array of high-tech weaponry to fight the crimes in the decaying city.
Directed by Christopher Nolan, the Dark Knight trilogy has become a timeless classic for Batman fans worldwide. Sideshow and Hot Toys is pleased to present the Batman Sixth Scale Collectible Figure from Batman Begins as an exclusive item, available only in selected markets!
