Sneak Peek at The Dark Knight Rises' Bane figure from Hot Toys

Jan. 23, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Hot Toys, who makes 1/6 scale figures for uber collectors, has just released a teaser for the first figure from their THE DARK KNIGHT RISES line, featuring none other than Bane himself. We don't see his face, but the 70's pimp coat and urban militant gear is in full swing.

Hot Toys is a Hong Kong based toy manufacturer, which has been doing absolutely awesome work for the last 12 years on a slew of licensed properties.  The company has licenses for a wide array of properties, including Predator, Terminator, Batman, The Dark Knight, Indiana Jones, Rambo, Superman, Hellboy, 300, Spider-Man, etc., as well as Clash of the Titans and The Avengers, meaning you can expect a good dose of sweetness in terms of product tie-ins for some of this summer's most epic flicks.

For those collectors that want something more than a tiny hunk of plastic junk to display, Hot Toys is a great place to start in upping your 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN fanboy/girl collection. Just don't get caught having a GRANDMA'S BOY moment with the Scarlet Johansen Black Widow figure. Hot Toys figures can be bought through Sideshow Collectibles (who also offer a "layaway" plan for the more expensive items). 

Check out some highights from their product line:

They typically run about $200 a pop and are produced in limited quantities. If you're struggling with something to ask for for one of the big two (Birthday or Christmas) then look no further. I'm a super nerd collector and pretty much have something on layaway at any given time. Even the most cynical of fans has to appreciate the intricate detail in these figures.

Look for more figures to roll out throughout the year, tying into THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, THE AVENGERS, WRATH OF THE TITANS, and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, as well as many more.

 

Extra Tidbit: Who would you like to see Hot Toys cover, past or present? I'd like to see a Back to the Future line, The Rock, and possibly On Golden Pond...for personal reasons.

I want a Jason Statham action figure from The Transporter. Also a Buffy one that actually looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar. So far nobody has got her face right.

I would KILL for a line of 1966 Batman tv series Hot Toys. Or Sideshow.
Or hell, a Bill Bixby / Lou Ferrigno Hulk set.

I bet the people who buy the Bane figure won't be able to understand him.

Thor

Why does Thor have a John Holmes 70s porn star 'stache instead of the beard he has in the movie?

Wait a sec, are those Empire Magazines that Bane was standing on? Niceee. I have Hot Toys' The Joker from "The Dark Knight" - frakkin' expensive but worth every penny. The detail is just superb. I think the coolest picture here is Stallone with his very own Barney Ross.

Um...this is Hot Toys' line, not Sideshow. Two different companies entirely.

Sideshow makes their own stuff as well, which you can see on their site. Check out their Premium Format figures...they are just as sweet as the Hot Toys ones, only slightly bigger and way more expensive. I have quite a few and they are super bad ass.
