Batman sure gets his share of sizable action figures these days. Hong Kong's Hot Toys offers hyper realistic 1/6 and 1/4 The Dark Knight Rises figures while Enterbay has a 1/4 scale Batman Begins toy on the market. What's been missing in this movie mix, though, has been a sculpt based on comic book art. Leave it to Singapore's Play Imaginative will fill this void... with metal. PI is currently accepting preorders on its 1/6 scale Super Alloy Batman featuring a New 52 Justice League costume design by DC's Jim Lee and boasting a body that's 85 percent diecast metal. In addition to its 50+ points of articulation, the figure will also come with "a detachable and posable fabric cape, grappling gun and batarang accessories, and a magnetic dragon gargoyle display base," according to PI's official listing. The figure even comes with embedded magnets in its hands and feet to interact with all of its own wonderful toys. Since the $315-350 figure is only available through pre-order at PI stores and the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention in September, it will sadly ellude most of us. If you've got plenty of cash and a bud in Singapore, however, you could soon find yourself the envy of all of your Hot Toy collecting friends.
