Hush Batman V.S. The Dark Knight

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Size does matter......

when it comes to toys. I couldn't resist the temptation of purchasing the latest "Batman - The Dark Knight Version" by Hot Toys. This is really indeed a very hot toy given its details and realism.

What's the difference and why is this toy so different from the rest of my collection?

1. It is 1:6 this makes it one of the largest action figures I own.
2. Its suit is tailored onto what is known as a 'True Type Male' body.
3. As it is wearing a suit, the joints are concealed making it look really real.
4. Its head is sculpted to the likeness of Christian Bale

The Dark Knight Version - "I need a new suit."

A comparison of size - 6" vs 12"
The Batarang

The Grappel Gun

Up up and away!

Fight like a man; Batman that is

Upcoming - Hot Toys Iron Man!!

I'm so gonna get the 1:6 scale Tumbler!!

Transformers Animated......

has ended its run for Season 1 today and I have been actively collecting some characters that interest me.

Here is one of them, Skywarp (Starscream was my first Decepticon Seeker but it's still in his packaging). This may just be my favourite TF Animated figure. Nice colour combination and great transformation sequences. It also looks fantastic in both Robot and Alternate mode.

Transformed and really to strike. the joints give this figure great 'poseabilities'
Fighter mode - The only issue I have is that the missiles are not on the wings
Cool stealth colour scheme
Landing gears gives it more realism
Gerwalk - As a Macross fan, I must transform it to this modeSide view
"Conquest is made of the ashes of my enemies"
Since we are on the topic of Seekers, I took a few shots of Masterpiece Starscream for comparison. I'm a little lazy to transform it and so used both the Takara version in Fighter mode and the Hasbro version in Robot mode.

Fighter Mode - F15 Eagle

Lift off!

Robot Mode - Articulation is fantastic and a lot of dynamic poses can be accomplished with the stand provide.

All about Heads.......

I made my own bust but it's headless. I made it with a Dark Knight Figure....Not much was left of it after I'm done with it.

Here's a pix of the completed product.

Joker's Trophy: Death of Batman

The container is actually an empty Air wick (ambipur).
It all started with the purchase of the Batman with Batpod below.
It came without a head.....(why you asked? The answer, I got it at a cheap sale).
So, the only logical thing to do is to get a head from an old Dark Knight figure.
After, removing the head.......I decided to make my very own Batman bust.....I named it : Joker's Trophy

Here's the Batpod with Batman (with his head)

It actually came with a launcher...Pretty neat set.

Then, another Head I picked up is Optimus Prime with the voice of Peter Cullen. Great display piece and the voice changer is something quite cool as well. I displayed it on one of my home entertainment speakers. It reminds me of this childhood candy where you have to tilt the head of a character to get these little rectangular candies. PEZ...ring a bell? Perhaps this will help

Well, actually, there are more that I've purchased but I've only these much time to show these much.
