Perfect scale to Hot Toys’ 1/6th scale collectible figures from The Dark Knight Rises movie? Does that mean that Hot Toys have to re-release the Dark Knight again? Who else can ride the Bat-pod except BATMAN the Dark Knight himself (as the pictures show) or is there another 1/6th figure that can ride the Bat-pod? 1/6th scale Anne Hathaway Catwoman? Hmmmm...
There appears to be no mention of the extra cape and cape support for the special riding effect for Batman which came with the FIRST version (see my post HERE). So does this mean that this particular version is not intended for BATMAN but Catwoman instead?
