Some awesome new Dark Knight Rises 1:6 Figures are available from Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles.
A hero can be anyone…
Rising from the abyss of summer boredom comes some excellent new Batman DX toys to entertain your inner child.
First the Dark Knight himself:
After years of hiding, Bruce Wayne is forced out to overcome his disability when a ruthless mercenary takes control of the underworld, and threatens the whole of Gotham city. With the help of the mysterious Catwoman and his butler Alfred, Bruce must don the cape and cowl again to protect the citizens of the beloved from their greatest enemy yet.
Batman is always one of the most recognizable superheroes in the DC universe. Recreated in accurate proportions, Hot Toys is excited to present the true-to-movie creation from our proud DX Series, the Batman Sixth Scale Collectible Figure inspired by The Dark Knight Rises.
Sophisticatedly crafted based on the appearance of Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the film, the highly-detailed figure features two newly developed Batman helmeted head sculpts with interchangeable faces techniques design including one with LED light-up function and one with separate rolling eyeballs features; a newly developed head sculpt of Bruce Wayne displaying marvelous craftsmanship; a newly designed body with a wider range of articulation highlighting Batman’s strong and muscular form; finely tailored Batsuit completed with weave carbon fiber-like detailing; Batman’s fancy gadgets including EMP rifle with LED light-up function, sticky bomb gun, grapnel gun, batarangs, and mini mines; as well as a highly elaborated stone-like diorama figure base for display.

Oh man, this is just too awesome. I just had to fight the urge to call my mom and beg to be taken to the toy shop… but it gets even better!
Does it come in black… with a Batpod?
The only thing better than a Batman DX action figure is one with a vehicle:
Bruce Wayne has decided to return as Batman once again to protect innocents from the biggest threats. Unfortunately, his sudden reappearance on the weaponized Bat-Pod sparked a negative effect as the city police were trying to pursue him in the epic chase through the streets of Gotham.
Inspired by the finale of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy, Hot Toys is thrilled to present the Bat-Pod Sixth Scale Collectible Figure that allows greater mobility for the Caped Crusader and Catwoman in Gotham City!
Skillfully crafted based on The Dark Knight Rises movie, the Bat-Pod collectible is recreated with extreme precision and outstanding painting applications, complemented with perfectly scaled aerodynamic design and mechanical details throughout its engine and body. Measuring at approximately 58.5cm in length, it features headlights with light-up function; rotatable rubber tires; and more exquisite mechanical features such as munitions clusters, operator controls, and guards, saddle, and footrest.
Be sure to include the cool Bat-Pod collectible to your Dark Knight collection!
Take all my money!
I have to play with these new Dark Knight Rises 1:6 figures! I have to hum the Hans Zimmer score while pretending Batman is racing the Batpod across the back of the couch! I’ll happily buy collectible Bat-coins and then pay with those at a massive loss, just let me play with them!
It will be a cruel summer indeed for any collector who doesn’t get these pieces!
