“Rise of the Dark Knight,” the latest Batman movie, will release this summer. And with toy fair coming to a close we weren’t too surprised to see a whole slew of Batman inspired toys. In fact, we built a whole gallery around them which you can see here. However, we did miss one: the 1/6th to scale Movie Masterpiece Batmobile, the Tumbler.
This isn’t the first iteration of the Tumbler that we’ve seen and we’re confident it’s not the last. But make no mistake, this one is probably the most legit, at least on the toy level. First off, it costs a whopping $440, enough to make a grown man wince. For that kind of cash you’ll get a movie accurate model, that includes a sliding roof and cockpit specifically designed to fit Hot Toys’ sixth scale Batman figure. To boot the brake flaps are movable and the headlights light up, provided you install 3 AAA batteries.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
