‘Dark Knight Rises': First look at Gotham City’s new toys

Jan. 31, 2012 | 9:01 p.m.

“Where does he get those wonderful toys?” It was 23 years ago this summer that Jack Nicholson delivered that line in Tim Burton’s “Batman” and — even as the names, faces and franchises change — the caped crusader is still hard to beat on the toy aisles of America. This July, Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” will arrive in theaters and that means a whole new mountain of Gotham City toys and tie-ins are on the way. Some of the key products will be unveiled at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, which begins Wednesday, and in the gallery above we have the exclusive first look at three of them: Mattel’s Batman: “The Dark Knight Rises” Quicktek figure; Funko’s  “The Dark Knight Rises” Bane vinyl pop figure; and “The Dark Knight Rises” Catwoman vinyl pop figure. We also have Mattel’s “The Dark Knight Rises” Movie Masters figure which isn’t exclusive but it is pretty cool in a Wayne Manor kinda way.

    just as lame as the toys for the 2 previous movies. now, 1989 Batman and Batman Returns had the best toys. no silly looking Batmobile either.
