Finally, I get to put up my Takara Christian Bale Batman, both figures no less :) Batman
was what got me started collecting toys way back in 1996 and I've come a long way since. Already covered the Batman movie
figures, Medicom's Batman Begins
figure and Takara's Christian Bale/Bruce Wayne
Now I've both Christian Bale/Bruce Wayne and Christian Bale/Batman.
Nice suit, even nicer shoes
Christian Bale/Batman close-up
You can't see his clunky shoes/clogs from this angle - thank goodness
A very nice headsculpt
The Batman outfit's not bad either
Christopher Nolan gave us a reason for the spikes on his gauntlets, now tempered bronze "scallops" to deflect blade attacks and also used for climbing
Batman's cape and the shadow it casts manages to cover up the clogs he's wearing - one of the gripes I have with this figure. The other is that his rubber suit doesn't allow him to hold too many poses as it restricts his movements. Didn't have this problem with Hot Toys Deunan
' rubber body suits.
Takara's Batman is very nice from the ankles up
Batman's left side profile
Batman's Batarangs - he has three of these
The cloth material used for Batman's cape is a little thin, unlike Medicom's, although it does fall nicely
Batman's back and his belt from the back as well, usually covered by the cape
The holder for his grapnel gun, which is magnetically attached in the movie
You can make out his clogs from this picture - really ugly!
His batphone and palmtop computer all-in-one, encrypted for maximum security and voice-activated for hands-free use
Batman's right side profile
Close-up of his belt
Batman's grapnel gun, for getting out of hairy situations
A very fine job by Takara. Now bring it on, Hot Toys!!
Hot Toys Batman Original Costume review here
nice series of pix bro, you may wanna try using the suit from this figure? glad to see you finally giving this fig a display area of its own, IIRC, it was previously boxed up in you master bedroom.
yeah, saw your pix - NICE! the suit's nice too. takara Batman will stay displayed until the new Hot Toys' version 2.0 comes - then we'll see which Batman rules!!
