Camouflage Tumbler 1/6 Scale Model

Monday, July 30th, 2012

As with all movies, good or bad, there has to be some related memorabilia for sale, and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is no exception. Luckily, Hot Toys doesn’t disappoint with their series of highly-detailed scaled models of Batman, Bane, and the camouflage Tumbler/Batmobile. Aside from being completely badass looking, the camouflage tumbler features a roof panel that slides open and functioning headlights, requiring 3 AAA batteries. The good news? It’s available for pre-order! The bad news? It’s not being released until September 2013! By that point, The Dark Knight trilogy will already be available as a 3+ disk special edition Blu-ray/DVD combo pack in a collector’s box most likely shaped like the Tumbler. Then again, you can’t rush perfection.

Available for pre-order from Sideshow Collectables

The Dark Knight Rises Motorcycle Suit

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

How could UD Replicas possibly top the awesomeness that was the Stormtrooper motorcycle suit? By making a motorcycle Batsuit, that’s how! This Batsuit replica features a motorcycle-grade mesh Cordura base and is made from Grade A cowhide leather with highly-detailed leather molding and form molded hard and soft shell Kevlar details. The jacket sleeves feature fully adjustable leather gauntlets while the gloves feature anti-skid Kevlar. CE Approved Body Armor in forearms/elbow, shoulder and back spine protector is completely removable, as is the lightweight interior lining.

The run on this fantastic motorcycle suit is even more limited then previous Stormtrooper offering, with only 350 sets available for sale and a price to match: $1564.00 CDN. Note that this is for the entire set; individual components can be purchased as the jacket, pants, gloves, and boots. Sales close August 31st, so those interested better hurry. Even at the price, it wouldn’t be surprising to see these sell out quick.

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

A morning started with Batman is a morning well spent, and correct me if I’m wrong, but was that a Bat-hovercraft?!? This is gonna be one helluva way to end the Noland trilogy! Too bad we’ve got over half a year left to wait :(.

Tumbling Around Town Like Batman

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Check out this video of the three tumblers/Batmobiles from the upcoming ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, the last film in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. Each tumbler is powered by a Chevy V8 engine and is painted in a desert camo variant. It’s a shame they’ll most likely be lost to high-impact stunt damage, since they look so damn cool. The owner of one of these would be the envy of Batfans the world over.
