Hot Toys is back with a special update for their upcoming The Batman 1/6th scale figure. There were quite a few complaints when Hot Toys revealed this figure with his head sculpt. This figure was already sculpted before the film's release and now have modified it to fit its current design. Some of the new modifications consist of updated hair sculpt for the Bruce Wayne Head Sculpt as well as an additional interchangeable hair sculpt. The Batman will now feature die-cast batarangs, replacing the original design. Hot Toys has even updated his body physique and the batsuit colors to match the original films design.
It updates like this that really show off just how different Hot Toys is compared to other companies. Obviously, money is the issue here as you are expecting quality when it comes to a $250 figure over a $20. However, a lot of single $20 figures would sell for a lot more if corrections like this were to be made like some of the McFarlane DC Comics figures. The Batman Hot Toys 1/6 Scale FIgure is priced at $300 and is still up for pre-order right here.
