I have been a fan of Bane since the famed cover, Batman #497, that showed him breaking the Batman’s back. I have always wanted some kind of collectible that represented that. Well we finally have something to remind us of that iconic cover. In honor of The Dark Knight Rises, DC Collectibles has created a massive 1/6th scale statue showing off that scene from the movie. What has been your favorite collectible from The Dark Knight Rises so far? What other classic scenes would you like to see a collectible for?
Bane is one of the characters that always seems to be popular with collectors. From the Knightfall Bane figure all the way to the recent Arkham Asylum release, each figure seems to be difficult to find and very pricey if you are lucky enough to locate one. However, with Bane being part of the Dark Knight Rises movie, we are seeing more Bane collectibles hitting the market. One of the more unique ones that we are really looking forward to is the Bane statue inspired by Kelley Jones that is part of the Batman Black and White series. This statue is a little bigger than most statues in this series at 8.75″H x 7″W x 5″D. Bane is currently available to pre-order through JMD Retail, and it is expected to arrive in October 2012.
