Patiently we are waiting for the release of Batman vs Superman next week….nah, patiently my a.. , I’ve been replaying all the batman movies of late, trying to get my sons interested in something else than Youkai Watch, Naruto and Doraemon. Yeah at present time these two super heroes would lose from an earless robot cat from the future, if I asked “what movie do you guys wanna see?”. But my plan of brainwashing the rugrats is slowly reaping the fruit of my labour. No longer do I have to explain the meaning of krypronite, no weird looks are given when I walk around in my batman costume…..life is good.
But then Japanese figure maker Hot Toys releases a 220cm 1/1 scale Armored Batman replica and my kids fully supported my decision to order it, until they found out that they had to sleep in the kitchen, as the only place with space to fit this huge figure is their bedroom….kids…selfish to the bone!
Like usual Hot Toys figures are perfect to the detail, with real looking skin, truly authentic looking armor and even led lights to light up the eye and the foot rest.
At 1,400,000 yen it isn’t an impulse buy, but you should see it as art, it won’t lose its value and it makes for a sure breath taking display in your house or shop. (pre-order delivery in August)
Unfortunately no weight is written down, but it surely won’t be heavier than an equally priced Toyota Corolla…making it less costly than importing a car!
It will be shipped in four parts, but assembly is a breeze, making it a one time family project.
For those with little space or smaller wallets, Hot Toys also released this 1/6 scaled armored batman at about 33 centimeters it’s certainly a bit smaller but not less impressive as the same sense of detail and perfection went into this product as well. you can even change the expression of Ben Affleck, through two included interchangeable face parts leaving this figure the real actor in the wind when it comes to facial expressions. Similar to its’ big brother, the eyes also light up….and that for a measly 38,000 yen.(pre-order delivery in November)
We’d almost forgot his foe/friend Superman….29,894 yen (pre-order delivery in June)
Superman comes with 8 hands!
And finally for those with true tight living spaces these Cosbaby 6 figure set is the perfect “must have”. Cosbaby comes from cosplay baby and Hot Toys has been selling this line for quite some time now to loving collectors. (14,000 yen pre-order delivery in June)
No matter what you choose, we can get it for/to you as cheap as possible, give us a heads up!
Those folks how don’t care about figures, but wish to look like these super heroes through vigorous exercise (yes yes I’m talking about myself, admiring my flexed biceps while typing this), might be interested to know that our favorite sports apparel shop Body Maker also jumped on the bandwagon with a new very affordable line.
