Hot Toys | The Dark Knight | Batman

I'm a huge fan of Batman. I am by no means an expert, but the character resonated with me even when I was 3 years old and watching the Superfriends. I fondly remember saving his pages for last in my coloring books. I even remember watching the campy TV program at my grandparents' house. He was THE character I grew up with, even if I didn't know about his dark origins. He was just so cool. It was the Hot Toys Batman figures that really got me involved in the 1/6 scale figures.

Hot Toys | Man of Steel | Superman

Re-telling of origin stories can be a very tricky thing, especially in movies. Most people that grew up with Richard Donner's Superman have a very special place in their heart for Christopher Reeve's portrayal of one of the most iconic superheroes of the modern era. Hot Toys did produce a Reeve Superman and it's one of those figures that is the epitome of solid craftsmanship of a beloved portrayal. So how did the Man of Steel version compare? Continue Reading
