Hot Toys is a little late in coming up with this, don't you think? Well, as they say, better late than never. Takara had already released a Bruce Wayne with climbing harness way back in 2007 - see my post HERE and HERE. I actually got the Takara Batman Begins figure over Hot Toys version (check out the Takara version HERE) because Hot Toys version 1.0 wasn't as good. I only got the much improved Hot Toys original Batsuit when they released it again as part of their "Dark Knight" line (version 2.0 HERE). And finally, I switched the Hot Toys Christian Bale head with the Takara version for my own version of 12-inch Bruce Wayne going "spelunking" - pictures HERE.
