While opinions on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice were polarizing to say the very least, you can’t deny that the film has some prime candidates for great Hot Toys figures. This new model of the Dark Knight is no exception.
The figure is based on the “knightmare” vision that Bruce Wayne has about a future where the world is destroyed and is consumed with alien creatures. His greatest fear comes to a head when Bruce envisions Superman as the leader behind it all. As the movie shows (spoiler), Bruce’s dream has a very good chance of being a true vision of what’s to come.
The 1:6 scale figure comes with a machine gun and pistol, a scarf to ward off sandstorms, goggles, four sets of interchangeable hands, as well as three different mouth plates.
I liked this figure not only because it has that lifelike feel that Hot Toys is known for, but also because it shows a high-class version of the toys we had growing up. We all remember walking through the aisles at Target, looking at “Snow Force Batman” or “Water Rescue Batman.” Knightmare Batman shows that theses figures can work with the right amount of detail.
So what do you think? Are you going to pre-order the Knightmare Batman? Are you excited to see what the Hot Toys versions of the rest of the Justice League look like? Let me know on Twitter or dream about YOUR worst case scenario in the comments below.
