As the promotional path for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" unfolds, more and more brands are jumping into the superhero film's publicity bandwagon.
The latest addition is Hot Toys' Armored Batman Life-Size Collectible. Hot Toys describes the product as movie-accurate and as realistic as it gets. It is a whopping 6.4 feet and even rises to 7.2 feet with the base. The collectible features light-up eyes, an armored head, a sculpted replica of the Batsuit and armor complete with a black fabric cape, and a circular light-up base with a "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" logo.
Various artists collaborated on the collectibles art, including Jae-Sung Eom for the head sculpting, JC Hong for the head painting and Kojun for the head art.
A 1/6th scale collectible figure is also available for the character of Batman. Based on the image of Ben Affleck as Batman, the collectible has a masked head sculpt with three interchangeable eye pieces, a Batsuit, Batman gadgets and a "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" figure stand. This product will have a special edition for special markets, which will include an additional sniper rifle as bonus accessory.
For fans who are into the adorable Cosbaby sets, Hot Toys has also released its Armored Batman and Superman Cosbaby Collectible set. These are quality 1/6th scale collectible figures with Superman standing just shy of five inches in height and Batman standing at over three and a half inches. The Cosbaby Collectible Set exclusively includes a miniature Bat-Signal.
In addition to the Armored Batman Life-Size Collectible, a Batman and Superman Artist Mix Collectible Set is also made available by Hot Toys. This set is specially designed by Japanese artist Touma for the upcoming DC Extended Universe film. Included in the Artist Mix Collectible Set are a Batman and Superman bobble-head, both standing at five inches, respectively.

Both Batman and Superman collectives, for $75, include a 1:12 scaled, accurate real fabric uniform and cape as seen in the movie, incredibly detailed sculpted costume accents and a hyper-realistic portrait.
