Hot Toys has gone batty with the introduction of a 1/12 scale Bat vehicle from The Dark Knight Rises. While they’ve previously teased the Bat, Hot Toys never eluded to the fact that the Bat would be created in a 1/12 scale (6-inch figure scale), which is a departure from their usual 1/6 scale work.
The 1/12 scale Hot Toys Bat vehicle is in proportion to most 6-inch scale figures measuring in at approximately 30 inches long by 16 inches wide and 10 inches tall. The Bat includes a remote control that activate its six front and six middle LED lights, and its 2 rear engine LEDs. The remote also operates its spinning propellers. The Bat features movable rotors and rotatable propellers as well as a functional cockpit door with two seats capable of accommodating figures. A Bat stand (Why would we call it anything else?) is included for display.
Here’s where things may get a little confusing. There are two versions of the Bat a regular MMSC001 version that includes all the features noted above as well as a 6-inch Batman figure and a deluxe MMSC002 version that includes all the features noted above as well as a 6-inch Batman figure, a 6-inch Selina Kyle (Catwoman) figure and a fusion reactor. Essentially, both vehicles are identical with the only differences between the MMSC001 and MMSC002 being the inclusion of the Catwoman figure and fusion reactor.
The Hot Toys Bat is scheduled for a fall / winter 2015 release with the regular version priced $690, while the deluxe version is a whopping $780!
