It has a long uninteresting name. I just took to calling it... The Bat ... ...

and yes, Mr. Wayne, it does come in black - That's what the Fox says...

I doubt I will ever own the Hot Toys version if they are really making this for obvious reasons. I was pleasantly surprised that Kaiyodo decided to make one under their Sci-Fi line.

Their earlier release of the Tumbler and the Canon Tumbler are well done and I have no issue ordering this.

Like the Tumbler, we have here a mini batsy to pilot The Bat. This really isn't necessary but this is the kind of details collectors value in their toys.

Really, this looks more like a model kit than a Revoltech toy and there are very limited Revoltech joints on this. Very impressive.

The radical design of this "batwing" is truly mind blowing and some ideas of how this is conceived can be found here.

Only the pilot cockpit opens up and there is no seat for the rear passenger as seen in the movie.

The jump jets has revoltech joints on them and thus can be articulated.  Likewise are the rotor blades below the body and the flaps at the rear.

Top view and undercarriage view below. I wish I have the space to house the 1/12 scale from Hot Toys. Well, this will have to do for now.

With the revol joints, you can tilt the cockpit and the flaps down. The  rotors can be rotated around and of course, you can remove them for their regular servicing.

If you're asking "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" I'll be asking you "Are you joking? My fav bird shop of course!"
