It’s been more than five years since Christopher Nolan’s second entry in The Dark Knight trilogy seared its definitive take on Batman into a serious amount of cinematic souls, but even after covering its fair share of merchandising ground across all three TDK films, Hot Toys had yet to enter its version of the Batcave. That changes in 2014 as three new 1/6 scale configurations of the movie version of the Batman Armory are set to debut. There’ll be a Batman Armory with a 1/6 scale Batman figure, an Armory with a 1/6 scale Alfred Pennyworth figure, and an Armory with 1/6 scale figures of both Alfred and Bruce Wayne. The coolest thing about these sets, however, is that they ALL come with the pieces needed to construct a 1/6 scale Batman or any combination of Batsuit/Bruce/Alfred parts. I think every toy fan is ready to see The Dark Pennyworth Rise from the comfort of their own shelf.
