Hot Toys 12-inch Demon Batman & Scarecrow Preview

In the 2005 movie "Batman Begins", at Arkham Asylum where Jonathan Crane (Cillian Murphy) has captured Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes), Batman (Christian Bale) intervenes and gasses Crane with his own toxin. Batman interrogates Crane who now sees only the Demon Batman, and lets slip that he is working for Ra's al Ghul before passing out with fear.

This is the Hot Toys 1/6 Movie Masterpiece Series (MMS) Demon Batman & Scarecrow two-pack figure set and just in time for Halloween too (this is one of three 10th Anniversary Store Exclusive meant only for Japan - see previous post for the Michael Jackson "Beat It" M Icon figure).

These Hot Toys 10th anniversary exclusive items will be made available at the anniversary event “THE 1/6TH SCALE RENAISSANCE DECADE” in Tokyo during Christmas 2010 (Dec 24-26).

Batman Demon comes with Authentic and detailed fully realized likeness of Batman Demon in the "Batman Begins" movie with Newly developed head sculpt with movie-accurate facial expression, Newly developed upper body and forearm gauntlets, Seven (7) pieces of interchangeable palms including One (1) pair of relaxed palms, One (1) pair of fists, One (1) pair of palms for holding Scarecrow’s neck, One (1) piece of right palm for holding batarang. Costume: One (1) Bat-suit with cape, One (1) utility belt with cell phone and accessories, One (1) pair of black-color boots

At the prison where Falcone has been arrested, Jonathan Crane (Cillian Murphy) shows Falcone the burlap-sack mask he wears during his experiments. He releases gas from his suitcase and puts on the mask, which acts as an air filter. Falcone screams with fear at hallucinations caused by the gas.

Later in the Narrows, Crane announces to Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes) his new alias - "The Scarecrow"

The Scarecrow will come with Authentic and detailed fully realized likeness of Scarecrow in the "Batman Begins" movie, One (1) set of grey color suit, One (1) piece of torn khaki color madhouse uniform (straitjacket) and One (1) pair of brown-color boots

Here's the clincher: there will only be 2,000 sets of this pair of figures (sold as a set) at ¥28,000 (about USD346.50) Good LUCK :)

I don't know why Hot Toys feels the need to treat their American (and other Western) fans as second-rate. Why are figures like these being released exclusively in Japan and South-East Asia, when we have been clamoring for characters like Scarecrow as well? Not to mention the fact that we have been loyal customers, supporting releases such as the DX line and the original "The Dark Knight" series of figures.

The only option for collectors like me is to feed the scalpers on Ebay, who will charge an arm and a leg because Hot Toys refuses to even try to make its products available on an equal basis.

Hot Toys' choices in these matters do not increase their revenue in any possible manner, and in fact limits it to less than what it could be. However, it will certainly turn many Western collectors off, as the Hot Toys attitude is rather dismissive.

OMG!the scarecrow figure is the best-i love it-but why is he sold with stupid batman-i don't like batman.
well i guess that is the only way they can sell batman is to pair him up with a real cool character like the scarecrow.
hey,company selling this item get rid of batman and just sell the scarcrow that is where the money is-in the villian collection,like the joker and the scarecrow-they are awesome guy's.
so get with the program and dump the dead weight fatman
