Asmus Toys "Batman Forever" Riddler PREVIEW

Batman Forever is a 1995 American superhero film directed by Joel Schumacher and produced by Tim Burton. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, the film is a sequel to Batman Returns (1992), with Val Kilmer replacing Michael Keaton as Batman. The plot focuses on Batman trying to stop Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones) and the Riddler (Jim Carrey) in their villainous scheme to drain information from all the brains in Gotham City.

Jim Carrey plays Dr Edward Nygma / The Riddler: A former Wayne Enterprises employee, Edward resigns after his newest invention is personally rejected by Bruce Wayne. He becomes the villainous Riddler, leaving riddles and puzzles at scenes of crime.

These are preview pictures of Asmus Toys 1/6 scale Jim Carrey as Riddler 12-inch Figure (Item No. 0041). The Asmus Toys 12-inch Riddler will include: an exclusive fully pose-able male body with
two Jim Carrey as Riddler head sculpts, one with a smiley face and another 1/6 scale head sculpt with an open-mouthed expression and wearing the Riddler's trademark bowler hat. Also comes with 3 pairs of changeable hands, Riddler's (?) cane, Riddler's (?) green jersey and jacket, a bag and a bat-bomb.

Estimated release date : 25th September 2011. We'll just have to wait and see how this turns out.

Asmus Toys seem to be specializing only on Jim Carrey figures and the characters he plays in the movies. Other figures previewed earlier include: 1:6 scale Jim Carrey "Ace Ventura" figure (pictures HERE) and 1:6 scale Jim Carrey "The Mask" figure (previewed HERE)

ok so I'm sure we will have plenty of collectors asking "Why?" I mean so many Bat Fans have bashed this movie time and time again and especially Jim Carrey's role as the Riddler as well. But you know collectors we forgive and forget very easily. LOL! I'm sure there is a handful of people who will say "I'll get this one too!" by the way Alex, do you know if the Jim Carrey Mask figure was ever released yet?

Brilliant figure - as good as anything Hot Toys could produce. Where can I buy this figure and how much will it cost?
