‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Miniatures Revealed as Part of New DC Universe Toy Line
At Toy Fair, Jakks Pacific revealed new miniatures for the upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises. The non-posable figures include Bane (Tom Hardy), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Batman (Christian Bale). The lineup also includes a miniature batmobile with the original military design. If you’ve seen any of the leaked footage from the production set in Pittsburgh, you probably saw these vehicles along with Catwoman’s motorcycle and the Batwing.
The toy maker also showed off a new line of plush buddies for the DC Universe as well as miniatures for some of the core Justice League heroes and villains. These included the Joker, Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), The Flash, Cyborg, Blue Beetle and Robin. The Blue Beetle has become even more popular in the past few years thanks to the Batman: The Brave and the Bold cartoon.
Bane is posed with him arms up in the air as well as one of his legs. He looks like he is either doing a celebratory touchdown dance or as if he were about to step on someone.
Catwoman is posed with a gun, instead of her trademark whip which has become a staple of TV and Film versions of Catwoman.
Batman is shown with his line launcher, one of the popular tools used in the Batman: Arkham City video game to solve Riddler puzzles.
There is also a miniature batmobile with the original military design.
Here, you can see all of the DC Universe miniatures. Batman and Superman seem to be inspired by Jim Lee’s drawings.
However, The Joker is more of a throwback to his older, cartoony self. The Joker comes with a giant mallet.
This picture shows you the scale difference between Jakks’ biggest Superman and Batman plush buddies and the smaller miniatures.
