New DARK KNIGHT RISES Toys Show Off the Batwing Which Mattel Calls “The Bat”

     February 10, 2012


If you missed our earlier post about the new toys from The Avengers (which may or may not reveal the movie’s villain), then you wouldn’t know that the 109th annual American International Toy Fair starts rolling next week. We thought we’d get this party started with a few new toys from The Dark Knight Rises. They may not be as cute as the vinyl dolls we posted or as wacky as the Bobble Heads, but they do have one ace up their sleeve: the Batwing (Mattel calls it “The Bat”). There are copious amounts of Batwing goodies here, but if you want to see what your own hand-held model would look like, hit the jump.

The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine and opens July 20th. Click here for all of our previous coverage on The Dark Knight Rises. Check out the toy images below:
