I actually wasn't even aware they were making a 1/12th scale version. I immediately shrugged off the possibility of the 1/6th scale due to size and sure-to-be-ridiculous price alone. The idea of the 1/12th certainly makes it more appealing in that regard, but right now I think I'm more focused on getting Batman and Joker. Anything beyond that would be a long way off, and I already don't have space for my Tumbler as it is (plus I have to throw extra money into display cases because they're becoming dust havens). Even a 1/12th scale The Bat would probably be comparable in size to a 1/6th Tumbler and have a similar price tag as well.
Though director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy came to a close last year with the release of The Dark Knight Rises, it appears that we’ll still be seeing material from the franchise for some time to come. Hot Toys has posted a few curious images that tease the unboxing of a rather massive 1/6 scale model of “The Bat” from The Dark Knight Rises, revealing that Batman’s aerial vehicle could soon be yours. No price is given, but one imagines this won’t exactly be cheap. Pre-orders are expected to begin in the near future, so keep an eye out.
