Conversation between Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) and Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) in "The Dark Knight (2008)"After staring at the Hot Toys DX02 Batman from "The Dark Knight" and taking pictures of this newest 1:6 scale collectible figure (see my last two posts HERE and HERE) and incarnation of the new Batsuit / Batman costume, I felt that something just wasn't right, that something was missing. Then it hit me and I realized that Batman looks naked without his cape. How can one be a bat and not have wings?
Bruce Wayne: I need a new suit.
Lucius Fox: Yeah, three buttons is a little '90's, Mr. Wayne.
Bruce Wayne: I'm not talking fashion, Mr. Fox, so much as function.
[hands him a diagram]
Lucius Fox: You want to be able to turn your head.
Bruce Wayne: Sure would make backing out of the driveway easier.
Presenting the 1:6 scale Hot Toys DX Batman with Sonar Vision :) Hot Toys went one up above everyone else and gave us the Batman headsculpt with "light-up" Sonar Vision, where signals emitted by mobile phones are converted into images in a similar way to echolocation, in which bats use sound to see.
Also presenting the other utility belt (included) and Batman's grapple gun. In the film, the gas-powered grapple gun fires a magnetic grappling hook. The thin climbing cable was tested on a load-carrying capacity of 350 lb (160 kg).
Beautifully executed Batman head sculpt with "Sonar Vision" with interchangeable facial expression (mouth piece) by Hot Toys
This latest Batman utility belt comes with a holder / holster for his grapple gun. Previously, the grapple gun was stored horizontally (pictures HERE). Whilst the belt used for Batman's Hong Kong trip was plain (see previous post), this standard utility belt has all his other gadgets (such as smoke capsules, flexible periscope, mini mines, first-aid kit etc) stored on the lightweight high-tensile alloy belt.
And finally, the deluxe light-up display stand with LED lights, similar to Hot Toys DX01 Joker's (posted HERE)
Another EXCEPTIONAL 1:6 figure by Hot Toys. I've run out of words to describe this magnificent piece of collectible art. For those who already have this figure and those who have pre-ordered it and are waiting for it to arrive, all I can say is "ENJOY the TOY!"
Just a re-cap
