<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> TDKR: New Action Figure/Statue Of Bane Spotted

Yet another action figure for Chris Nolan's upcoming conclusion to his Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, has been revealed, depicting Tom Hardy as the villainous Bane. Check it out after the jump.

Every hero has a journey. Every journey has an end. Christopher Nolan returns to complete the epic Gotham trilogy that launched with Batman Begins and reached the stratosphere with the billion-dollar blockbuster The Dark Knight. Inception's Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levett join the cast regulars along with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle and Tom Hardy as the powerful villain Bane, while Oscar winner Christian Bale prowls the night as the Caped Crusader, fighting crime and corruption with the help of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman.

We've seen various action figures for the upcoming Batman threequel before (especially at the recent Toy Fair), but someone over at the TDKR Facebook group posted the below shot of a figure/statue (Hot Toys?) of Bane, played by Tom Hardy. What I especially found interesting was the broken Batman mask next to Bane, which is a nice touch. Check it out below:

Thanks again to the TDKR FB group for the heads up. Share your thoughts below in the usual place.

UPDATE: As some of you have noted in the comments, the above figure is actually a custom figure. It's still pretty cool though, definitely had me fooled.

Starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Marion Cottilard, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Morgan Freeman & Jospeh Gordon Levitt, The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theaters July 20th, later this year.
