Those are pretty cool.

Wow, that superman looks awesome. Loving the new suit. Batman also looks great.

Wow the Batman looks badass!

DAYUM!

Part of me wishes they'd designed a new suit for TDKR. Something about those puzzle-design legs bothers me.

That's badass no lie, I love sculpts and art pieces with his cape around him and stuff. I want their Stormtrooper but man, I don't have $200 bucks to spend on plastic and cheap chinese paint. This is really cool, I'm sure the painted version is cool, but I prefer black and white, or the gray costume with the blue cowl and cape with the oval yellow bat symbol, if they did that, I would preorder this crap!

The Batman in TDK/BB IS the batman suit. It made no freaking sense how Batman could even hide in the animated series with all that color.

OMG it's THE WHITE KNIGHT. LOL.

The puzzle pieces legs are a bit of a miss but, the head looks pretty sweet.
BillyBatson1000 - 2/12/2012, 12:48 PM
Great sculpts, but I hate the imagery of Batman with what appears to be a gun - that is just NOT part of his dynamic/psychology.
AsianVersionOfET - 2/12/2012, 12:58 PM
Hey BillyBatson1000, yeah, pretty sure that's a grapnel-gun....
Supes17 - 2/12/2012, 1:03 PM
That looks AWESOME!
Maia87 - 2/12/2012, 1:08 PM
BATass.

I just wish there was a way to make the bat symbol jump off the suit a little more. The black makes more sense, but I would love to see some take on the gray with black boots and black bat (no yellow). The gray and black suit, a la Arkham City, is my favorite Bat suit ever.

I just noticed the caped doesn't have the little edges at the end.

Wow 3 so far in one day Josh. Man when do you find the time to take people articles down.
Howlett - 2/12/2012, 5:25 PM

Christian Bale is the best looking Batman. Anyone else wearing that suit could not pull off the look that Bale brings to the character.
