    Arkham City is the only PS game I own. I have to get this.
    Funds. Space. Some of the few problems I need to face everytime there are new announcements.

    I want this, however I don't like the looks of the elbow and shoulder bends in the pics,looks like It's some kind of new seamless or rubber body.I don't know about anyone else but this is Batman and you have to be able to pose this w/o fear of breaks,right? This is nice piece of art.

    I prefer neca's armoured version, shame they didn't go for that look.
    pukingdog: What I like about your build threads, is that they start out like chaotic car wreck footage, which morphs into great figures. Your style is fearless.

    I was highly expecting this but after seeing that it's just another rubber suit, I'll easily pass. Now waiting to see full reveal of Bat-fleck costume, hopefully it's not rubber this time.

    Way too "iron Batman" in my opinion. Which doesn't really work for a guy who has to be stealthy and quick on his feet IMO.

    Pretty glad we're getting the arkham city version and am strongly considering picking this up.

    Nice looking, but a pass for me – i'll buy the Sideshow figure instead.

    Wonder what the base body looks like under all that rubber, might be good base for muscle bound Arnie figures like Conan!

    Hey each to their own. I will definitely pick this up. as soon as it is up for pre-order I will start my payment. Don't own a 1/6 Bats figure. @Dolly...I will be getting the Ben Afleck version also. i do understand a lot of people hesitation for the rubber suit. I have never owned a figure with the rubber suit so maybe in the future I will feel the same as they do, but I am willing to take a chance on this figure, it's from one of my all time video game series and for me it is a must have for me.

    At least when the suit cracks it'll still be close to his appearance in the game. I'm interested in this but will wait a year for in-hand pics.

    I know its supposed to represent what he looks like in the game but his hands are ridiculously out of scale. Other than that, I like it.

    Is anybody taking bets on how long does it take for that suit to disintegrate?

    I Like this better then the Sideshows but fear the rubber suit will start to disintegrate in just a short matter of time.

    I think he is wearing tactical depends.
    It takes a big man to cry.
    It takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

    This suit probably is rubber but I hope its plastic. It appears to bunch up quite a bit.

    Re: Hot Toys – VGM18 – Batman: Arkham City: 1/6th scale Batman

    Pictures look good but this is one I’d worry about seeing in hand. And more so because this one had unusual timing where we've already seen actual on shelf pictures SDCC before these official promos. See the OSW SDCC thread for some concerns from those pics.

    Basically the worry was threefold. There is 1) fear of long term rubber decay like ED-209 etc; 2) concern the rubber suit would severely restrict posability; and disappointingly 3) in hand the rubber suit looked bunched up and clumsy even in a neutral standing pose. These promo pictures don’t necessarily raise the same concerns that the SDCC on shelf pictures did but since they’re carefully staged promo pics, they don’t reassure me either.

    Re: Hot Toys – VGM18 – Batman: Arkham City: 1/6th scale Batman

    Those who have worries about this, my advice is simple don't buy it (not trying to be sarcastic). Wait until it comes out and I will tell you all about it. I have to pre-order this because I can not afford to shell out 229.00 at one time. I have to put them on pre-order and pay on it week by week until it is paid for. because of all the new Hot Toy releases I am going to fore go pre ordering any of the Guardian of the Galaxy figures. it's almost a shame because I am having to go almost exclusively Hot Toys for the next year and a half (minus the new bodies from Kaustik I am planning to buy) due to announced figures and upcoming figures from Batman/Superman.

    I wouldn't mind snagging some parts from this figure, (Head, neck cover, cape, & gauntlets).
    Pass on the rest.

    He looks way too chunky, even chunkier than in the game. I know that's the style they were going for, but still it looks... wrong. His hands and his head look way too small for the rest of his body.

    I like the head, but with that body...? He looks like a pin head. Way too bulky. I would have preferred a leaner, Neal Adams-ish physic.
