I bought the 1/12 scale Bane and Catwoman statues.. they are very nice, small and easy to display or store. I found the 1/6 scale ones to be too big and too expensive and I have very little room for displaying nowadays. I've only seen the 1/6 Bane in person. It's not as bad as I thought in person but like I said, too big and pricey for me. I bought the DC Direct TDK Joker statue and was totally disappointed with the overall look of it so I resold it right away to another collector. (this is why I was hesitant about getting the 1/6 scale Bane)

I've also seen the busts. They are not bad. I didn't like the Bane with his arms exposed so I ordered the Winter Battle Bane bust (which is the same thing but with that brown coat covering him)... still pondering getting the Catwoman bust.

As for actual worth .. I think they all are overpriced for what they are but I paid $84.99 each for the 1/12 scale statues where the 1/6 scale ones were $150 and the busts were $90 at my local comic shop. I'd say the 1/12 scale is the way to go if you don't want to spend much money. They are very nice

I've bought all three 1/6th scale and the Batman and Bane 7' statues, there are very good. In my opionion the 1/6 Bane and Batman are much better than the Catwoman one (even though she is striking a sexy pose, haha).

I paid $65 fot the 1/12 scale and $130 for each of the 1/6th, and you can find them one ebay for less if you want to risk the potential damage of transport.

I think that was Denny O'Neil deliberately embellishing, right?

The Ra's letters highlighting a daughter and things like that.

In addition to an alternate origin of R'as, mention of a Lazarus pit, and Bruce researching R'as at a library and auction house (I think it was an auctioning facility or private collector's vault -- cannot quite remember.)

Per Sigmund Freud:

"Psychological projection" reduces anxiety by allowing the expression of the unwanted unconscious impulses or desires without letting the conscious mind recognize them.

Thanks for your input, Travesty.

He looks great, I've seen a bunch of shots.

I would love if they did Catwoman

That poster set is pretty damn awesome. I'm trying to get me that final Dark Knight Rises poster that says "A Fire Will Rise". Does anyone have the pics from comic con of the TRU exclusive movie masters vehicles? I never got to see a pic of them and I'm been reading that Mattel is going to put out an exclusive movie master line of the tumbler, the bat, and the bat pod. I am probably going to end up buying a lot of the Dark Knight Rises Hot Toys figures. Just sucks that they won't probably be out until next year but that gives me a lot of time to save my money.

I'm desperately waiting on this. The Comic-Con exclusive sold out already, so I'll definitely be getting this. The gray-templed Bruce figure's my favorite.

I'm just kind of disappointed they couldn't give us a Bruce headsculpt with slightly longer hair. :/ But, uh.....is it just me, or do all three of those Bats have cloth capes??
