The Takara Batman figure.

The Takara Batman figure.Maybe the headsculpts and harness, but that's about it, since the size of the grapple gun and batarangs are inaccurate aswell as the suit itself, the cape is cheaply sewn and isn't accurate, the body looks like that of a teenage boy, the belt droops too low, the feet look dopey since they're two seperate pieces when they should be one, plus, the suit is made out of some kind of rubber that attracts dust like crazy and probably won't last very long either. The Hot Toys version is a hell of a lot better. Cape, armor, batarangs and gun are accurate, plus you still get a lot articulation even though the cowl is one piece and the armor is made from higher quality plastic.
Here's a comparison shot from another forum I visit;

Each of the three contenders* has their relative merits and in the end the best is going to mean what’s best for you:

Side-by-Side Comparison: http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW_073106a.htm
In the end the Takara gave me more of what I wanted:
... you won't get that from either the Medicom or HT versions.
* the DC Direct version can be dismissed without further consideration

Damn, I need to get that Takara joint.

Takara all the way.

As everyone has already said the Takara, it's really going up in price on Ebay but it really is a thing of beauty.

For the money ... I'd say the Batman Begins Action Cape. Though I'm biased. Takara is great ... but those things are still in excess of $200 for a toy. I mean, c'mon ...

"If price is your main factor and all you want is something that looks good up on a shelf then the Mattel Action Cape Batman is a viable option and that if ‘best buy’ is your prime determinant then one must consider the Mattel as the better option."

... But if it's the best 1/6th scale figure that you're after then that choice is clearly between the Takara or the Hot Toys."
