Not all fans of Batman is a fan of Batgirl, but if you are, then you are in luck because, Hot Toys has released a new Batgirl 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure based on the video game Batman: Arkham Knight. If you ask me, it is definitely sleeker than Bat himself in the game, which was also introduced recently.
Like, there are a lot less things going on there. Less distraction from the costume and more attention to spirit of the heroine, Barbara Gordon, herself.
Crafted based on the female cape crusader’s appearance in the video game, Hot Toys Batman: Arkham Knight Batgirl 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure features a newly developed masked head sculpt with long light brown real fabric hair, a newly developed body tailored for Batgirl, a sophisticated tailored Batsuit with snazzy gold color Bat logo across the chest, and light copper color on the armor on arms, belt as well as her arsenal of Bat gadgets.
Standing at around 30 centimeters (almost 12 inches) tall, the figure further features 28 points of articulations, interchangeable hands, interchangeable lower face, and a specially designed figure stand with game logo and backdrop.
Hot Toys Batman: Arkham Knight Batgirl 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure will arrive sometime in Q2-Q3, 2021, but you will want to secure it soon by pre-ordering it on retailers like Sideshow for $243.
Batman: Arkham Knight fans may want to complete your collection with the also recently announced Hot Toys Batman: Arkham Knight Batman (Prestige Edition) 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure which is also open for pre-order for $251 and $199 Hot Toys Batman: Arkham Knight Armory Miniature Collectible that reminiscent that of Iron Man’s (but with a rather weird flex).
Needless to say, both collectibles are based on the video game, with the Prestige Bat as an exclusive item that’s firstly available in Japan and select markets.
The armory, on the other hand, features futuristic armor pods with six select miniature size batsuits, including Batman, Batman Beyond Suit, 1989 Movie Suit, 2008 Movie Suit, Arkham Knight and strangely, Deathstroke too.
I’d say if you have no budget for all Batman: Arkham Knight collectibles, but you are huge Bat fan and wanted at least one collectible, the armory may be worthy of your investment. Moreover, the product will be arriving sooner, sometime in Q2-Q3, 2020 – around the same time as the Batman Prestige Edition.
