Hot Toys Reveals Sixth Scale Batman Arkham Knight Action Figure
The sixth scale Batman Arkham Knight action figure coming from Hot Toys is loaded with accessories perfect for taking down Arkham’s criminal line-up.
If you’ve never played the ‘Arkham’ game series from Rocksteady Studios (starting with 2009’s Arkham Asylum), you’re missing out. They’re well made, and a lot of fun to play. So it makes sense that Hot Toys would continue to mine the game franchise for new figures, with the latest being a sixth scale Batman figure from the Arkham Knight installation in the series. And in true Hot Toys fashion, this Batman is properly equipped to take down the baddies.
