Sideshow Collectibles Batman Sixth Scale Figure Coming In August
While Hot Toys has been delivering hyper detailed 12" tall Batman figures based on the character's iconic cinematic costumes, Sideshow Collectibles will be releasing something special for fans seeking a sixth scale figure based on the character's comic book look in 2014. Sideshow's fully articulated figure donned in a hand-tailored fabric Batsuit, cape and utility belt will come packed with a very Batman-y assortment of crimefighting accessories. And what accessory is more important than the human head? The figure will suitably ship with a masked head with short bat ears, a head with a mask with longer bat ears, and a preorder exclusive battle-damaged head. To aid in the figure's war on crime, Sideshow is also including multiple swappable hands, a grapple hook gun, three bat shurikens, one Batarang, and a Kryptonite ring... just in case a certain Man of Steel starts to, say, lazily snap necks in front of children (hypothetically).
This version of Batman is a bit of a stylistic conglomeration, bearing elements of a few iconic comic book costumes. If you dug Batman's Hush-ish era look circa 2001-2011 (I can't believe we can now use the term "pre-New 52"), this design very well could be up your (crime) alley.
Due out in August, fans can preorder the sixth scale Batman direct from Sideshow for just under $200. The toymaker has released a slew of promo images -- including ones paired with Sideshow's other sixth scale Batverse characters -- which you can scroll through below.
