Batman Action Figures from The Dark Knight Rises.
Here we go again. After every great summer block buster, there comes the merchandise and action figure for the game. Have you notice before the Green Lantern movie with Ryan Reynolds, the Green Lantern merchandise is scarce and hard to find in toy stores but shortly after the Green Lantern movie was announced, toy stores quickly designate a section of their store to Green Lantern? Well the same goes for Batman and since Batman is such a huge icon in the DC universe, this is nothing new. Big toy retailers such as Toys R Us did not have to make room but simply add to their on going Batman merchandise. These new Batman action figures from the Batman movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ are a great new addition to a great line of Batman action figures.

Heroes stand together. Consider donating to our We Can Be Heroes effort to fight the worst hunger crisis the Horn of Africa has faced in 60 years
Countries in the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Somalia, and Kenya) are facing the worst drought in 60 years, causing a severe hunger crisis. According to the U.S. government, the crisis is unlike any other in terms of displacement, death and starvation of the population. More than 13 million people are in need of critical assistance. In Somalia alone, more than 250,000 people face starvation. Hundreds of thousands have fled to refugee camps seeking help. The situation is so critical that the United Nations officially declared famine for the first time in 21 years.
Humanitarian aid organizations are on the ground working to provide much needed relief to the drought and famine-stricken areas. But they need more help. They need our help.

Hot Toys has released several pictures circulating the web about their upcoming Batman Micheal Keaton 1989 1/6 figure from Tim Burton’s Batman movie. Hot Toys has done a spectacular job creating past replica models from other super hero movies but when it comes to the Batman Micheal Keaton 1989 1/6 figure, hot Toys has taken the cake. This is by far one of the best Batman replicas out on the market today.
Batman Micheal Keaton 1989 1/6 figure
Batman Micheal Keaton 1989 1/6 figure: My Thoughts.
This is by far the most articulate piece of art that I have ever seen for super hero toys and statues. The first time I saw this figure, I thought they digitally redid the Keaton’s Batman to give it a new look in anticipation for the upcoming Batman The Dark Knight Rises movie. I was horribly wrong and for the next 15 minutes, I sat and drooled at how beautiful this Batman Micheal Keaton 1989 1/6 figure is. There is no doubt about that this is Micheal Keaton under the Bat Cowl. This Batman Micheal Keaton 1989 1/6 figure comes very close to the busts that are made for articulation but with movable parts. The arm appears to be movable. the cape comes on and off. The mouth piece has 3 parts to show different expressions from a small grin, to serious, to bloody and is exchangeable via strong magnets within the head. The hands can be removed and replaced with 6 different hand forms. So what makes this Bat suit design so much more popular then the mainstream counter-part from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight? For me, Keaton will always be the best Batman and the classic Bat suit design was a bigger jaw dropper than Nolan’s Bat suit. Given the fact that Nolan’s Bat suit is more practical for crime fighting, the Keaton’s Bat suit was simply a big hit to my childhood. There are Batman Dark Knight Rises figures on the market right now but they will never be as beautiful and articulate as this Batman Micheal Keaton 1989 1/6 figure from Hot Toys. but unfortunately the beauty of this figure does not come without a price. These toys are made with a limit and they are available online for over $200. You can find them on Ebay for a cheaper deal but as time goes and these figures are sold out form the major retailers, you can expect to see these figures sold for upwards of $1000. The exceptional talents of Keaton as Batman shines even in today’s market and the 1989 Keaton’s Batman is alive again.

thanks to our friends over at SuperHeroHype, We now have images from the upcoming Batman movie of Bane, Batman and Catwoman. These statues look extremely articulate. Bane’s appearance does not reveals any spoilers from the movie. We really want to know if Bane will get beefy and extremely muscular like his comic book counterpart. Catwoman looks very nice but for Batman comic book fans like myself, we are not feeling the costume and Anne Hathaway as Catowman (at lease not yet).
