It's been more than five years since Christopher Nolan's second entry in The Dark Knight trilogy seared its definitive take on Batman into a serious amount of cinematic souls, but even after covering its fair share of merchandising ground across all three TDK films, Hot Toys had yet to enter its version of the Batcave. That changes in 2014 as three new 1/6 scale configurations of the movie version of the Batman Armory are set to debut. There'll be a Batman Armory with a 1/6 scale Batman figure, an Armory with a 1/6 scale Alfred Pennyworth figure, and an Armory with 1/6 scale figures of both Alfred and Bruce Wayne. The coolest thing about these sets, however, is that they ALL come with the pieces needed to construct a 1/6 scale Batman or any combination of Batsuit/Bruce/Alfred parts. I think every toy fan is ready to see The Dark Pennyworth Rise from the comfort of their own shelf.

Maybe it was because Arkham Asylum was in the works at the time or that the mobile game market wasn't quite the powerhouse it is today, but for whatever reason there weren't any The Dark Knight videogame adaptations when the film dropped in 2008. While it's probably for the best that TDK's narrative wasn't reduced to what would've almost had to have been an epic boss battle with Heath Ledger's Joker -- a character intentionally unaffected by Batman's traditional physical violence -- CineFix has found a way to present key scenes from the film in charming 8-bit style.
Last week Warner Bros. released details of the highly anticipated 'The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition.' Featuring blu-ray editions of all three Batman films directed by Christopher Nolan, plus additional literature and numerous other extra features, the box set is a dream for devoted fans of the franchise, and ComicsAlliance has partnered with ScreenCrush to give a copy away for free.
Warner Bros. confirmed on Tuesday the details of the long awaited The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition, a deluxe compilation of Blu-ray discs, literature and artwork from the Batman films directed by Christopher Nolan. While there have been DVD and Blu-ray boxsets of these films before, this edition is the decidedly more luxurious product that Dark Knight devotees have been anticipating since the trilogy concluded with last year's The Dark Knight Rises.
In addition to the high end packaging of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises as well as the supplemental features from their existing Blu-ray releases, the Ultimate Collector's Edition comes with Hot Wheels' Batmobile, Batpod and Bat vehicles; art cards by Jock and Mondo featuring the villains of the trilogy; a hardcover photo book of production stills and behind the scenes images from all three movies; and, most auspiciously, an exclusive video conversation between Nolan and Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner, in which the two discuss their respective superhero films and how Donner's enduringly popular work informed Nolan's.
The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition goes on sale September 24 with a list price of $99.97.
