    Default Hot Toys - MMSxx - The Dark Knight - 1/6 Batman (TDK Suit)

    Since we have legit and clean shots of this to get real conversation going on it, figured I'd start a new thread to keep these threads on topic of the figure they're dedicated to.









    Can't wait for even more up close, detailed shots. Very intrigued by the process they're using on this figure.

    Looks like the pectorals and shoulder armor are a separate piece almost like football players wear for shoulder padding, then the arms are solid pieces of armor over, presumably, a cloth underlayer, which is accurrate to the suit, with the abdoment being a solid piece it would appear. Wonder how they'll have put the legs together.

    One benefit I'm liking of this suit over the Begins suit for figures, it seems to lend itself well to being made in a way that's more stable and functional so you don't have to worry about limits of a rubber suit or damaging it. Great kudos to them, and I don't care if there are innaccuracies to the film suit to pull this off, I want the figure to be the best figure it can.

    I'm getting both this figure looks great. I wonder if this one will also include the Wayne head or if they just threw it in there without trying to tie parts to specific figures. Worst case just take the head from the Begins figure, they'll likely attach the same way. I want to recreate the shot of Bruce in this suit contemplating events with a heavy heart like the trailer.

    Looks good. I would have figured they would put the armor pieces onto a fabric body suit like the movie suit.

    In here though, you face your fear. You open that door, and there's a hundred more doors behind it. And the monsters that are hiding behind them, are all real.

    You guys should take notice that this is a prototype, and some aspects, like the cowl, will probably be touched up in the future.

    The cowl isn't accurate, it's just the BB cowl on the TDK suit. Just look at the mouth opening and the jawline, very different from the official movie shots.

    Im worried about these areas that i marked in red here,it might be a problem with the paint peeling off like The Metal Gear solid 4 figure did,same with the Appleased figures,if anyone has experienced that problem before...
