The bat-signal lights up the night, say as Hot Toys is taking fans back to 1995 with their newest collectible reveals from the hit Tim Burton film Batman Forever. We originally saw this figure back in 2019, but not much has been heard since until today, that is. Hot Toys has finally announced their new Batman Sonar Suit that depicts Val Kilmer as the Caped Crusader once again. The Riddler and Two-Face better watch out as this figure is packed with realistic detail and accessories that will please any bat fan. The Dark Knight will stand 12" tall, features 30 points of articulation, and will be wearing a fabric cape. Hot Toys did develop a new Batman head sculpt for this figure with separate eye-rolling features to capture the film's portrayal. On top of that, he will come with swappable hands, underwater thruster, sonar lenses, Batarang, Batarang launcher, and a bat clamp launcher. Each of these tools will be a necessary piece to display the Dark Knight with and another way to bring justice to Gotham.
It is not often that fans get to relive classic collectible like this in the modern era. Batman Forever finally shows Robin join the bat family, and while his costume is a little "revealing," it's nice to see them fight together on the silver screen. Speaking of Robin, it does look like Robin will be able to join your collection as well, so be on the lookout for his reveal soon too. I hope we can see some of the villains get figures next as it would be great to see Tommy Lee-Jones Two-Face in figure form displayed next to this figure. The Hot Toys Batman Forever Sonar Suit will be price at $255 and set to release between April – June 2022. Payment plans are offered, and pre-orders are already live and can be found located here.
