Batman the Dark Knight by Hot Toys

It's finally here - Hot Toys' Movie Masterpiece The Dark Knight and what a beauty!! First previewed here, now with actual product in hand. The usual beautiful Hot Toys slipcase.

Was a little concerned when Christopher Nolan decided to tweak the costume. It has met with disastrous results in the past when the Batsuit had nipples!! This time however there was a vast improvement over the old costume.

Lucius: "Now, this new armor is lighter, so you'll be able to move more easily, but there is a tradeoff in that you'll have less protection and be more vulnerable to bullets and knives."

"Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight."

Batman: "I'm whatever Gotham needs me to be."
I seriously doubt Medicom's The Dark Knight can better this; and their Harvey Dent/Two-Face pre-view pictures released are piss-poor compared to Hot Toys. Sticking to Medicom only for their Ultraman figures.

Comparison of Batsuits - New vs Old.
