Batman - The Dark Knight costume (12-inch Hot Toys)

This is the new-improved costume introduced in The Dark Knight. I really like the new protective layers and also the fact that the head can actually turn now with the incredible engineering put into this costume.

In fact, the headsculpt of both Christian Bale and Batman looks so real-life. Accessories are similar to the first version, although there are changes made to the belt. The TDK version has double-blades on each arms while the original costume only has single-blades.

Downside, there are two. It could be just me but I felt that my figure there is something weird with the left arm. Not sure why, maybe the joints are little loose. You would not noticed it until you try to put the figure into some bad-ass pose. Still, a small matter. Secondly, the cape is too short. What happened to the cape of the first version? That was awesome. This version's cape is just was too short.

Batman's cape should freaking cover his feet. Not with this one. Anyway, I'm not going to complain too much. The bat is watching.
