Bane Gets Back-Breaking Poses In His Lifelike TDKR Hot Toys Figure

[View All on One Page]

Besides the artist who repaints character dolls, I’d probably say Hot Toys does the best job at replicating an actor’s precise looks in doll form. Their Loki, based on Tom Hiddleston’s character in The Avengers, still takes the cake for me but their recently revealed Bane from The Dark Knight Rises also does a pretty great job looking like actor Tom Hardy. This is also the first Hot Toys figure I’ve seen with its shirt off, which is vaguely uncomfortable. You’ll see why…

    Hot Toys are awesome.

    That’s why they cost an arm and a leg.

    After a couple of those, you end up with no limbs left, but holy guacamole are they worth it!

    As I clicked through the images, I thought, “sure, but can you take his shirt off?” And lo, the universe chuckled, ‘cuz he looks like he’s wearing a novelty tube top. Amazing detail as always. Maybe the photo doesn’t do it nekkid justice?

    Maybe I’ve spent too much time around the ball-jointed doll community, but I don’t see why shirtless Bane is “uncomfortable”?
