Hot Toys’ Bane is another thing of beauty

July 24th, 2012 by Paul Allen Comments

Having teased us for weeks with images on their Facebook page, Hot Toys have finally released details/images of their 1/6th scale Bane figure just in time for the release of the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s epic Batman saga.

It’s hard to tell how accurate the head sculpt of Tom Hardy is as the face is covered mostly by Bane’s mask, which is not detachable. Having said that the detail in the mask is beautiful.

Everything about the costume looks great. The 3/4 length leather jacket, the combat vest with all it’s straps and buckles, the military pants and combat boots. Though we are not quite sure why there is a decidedly dodgy brown sweater included! (continues after picture)

Along with the array of open and closed fists comes a broken Batman mask (look closely above) as seen on the promotional images for the film. The figure is available to pre-order from the store now, priced £179.99 (free shipping to UK customers). (continues after picture)

Not included with the figure unfortunately is this amazing Movie Masterpiece Camo Tumbler (below) which will set you back around £400.00.
