UPDATE: An official look at The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray box set with details!
UPDATE: Warner Bros. released a photo (see above) as well as official details on the set. It's quite similar to what I originally showed you. I don't know what you are going to think about the special features, however. Well I am pretty sure I know what the reaction will be but I won't be quick to judge. The packaging is nice and should be great for any Bats super fan. Check it all out below:

It's been long rumored that a nice little Blu-ray collector's edition box set would make its way to Batman fans. Thanks to a Polish Bats site we have what seems to be our first look as well as details on the set.
I'm really hoping that there are some great features on the DVD like behind the scenes, interviews, make-up tests, and so on. This trilogy has been special to the Batman fans, and if they are going to dish out the big bucks they want something in return. It looks like you will be getting three of the vehicles featured in each film. There's also great artwork from the looks of it.
