Dragon 1/9th scale Batman and Bane Action Hero Vignette from "The Dark Knight Rises"

Following on from the hugely popular Marvel Avengers “Action Hero Vignettes” produced in 1/9th scale, Dragon is swooping in with its next 3D release. This time it’s a vignette from the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises. A product from DART (Dragon Advanced Research & Technology), it features Batman and his nemesis Bane. The latter is a long-standing foe of Batman’s due to a combination of his considerable physical strength and formidable intellect.

Dragon’s unique Action Hero Vignette figures are a perfect cross between a display figure and a kit. Possessing just a few parts, the pre-painted elements quickly snap together to create a dramatic 1/9 scale action figure. Dragon’s kit production and technological expertise result in figures that are sharply detailed and which accurately mirror the 3D form of characters. Batman and Bane come with a diorama base that is pre-colored and that quickly assembles into a dramatic movie scene.

Key points from Dragon: Highly collectible display model Developed in 3D, using official data from Marvel. Highly detailed and accurate Dynamic poses with diorama base. Fully colored and textured to movie likeness. Minimal assembly, “plug and display”. So since Dragon cannot match the other companies with their 1/6th scale 12-inch movie-related products, they decide to venture into 1/9th scale statuesque figures instead. Basically, these are statues but they aren't cast in stone ;p
