He also has an unmasked head for maximum Robert Pattinson look, and the masked head itself has three interchangeable mouth plates to give Bruce a range of grimaces. Yes it’s not enough, a deluxe version will come with the wingsuit that Bruce uses to take flight in Gotham during the movie, and if you even have Continued money to blow, there is a light 1:6-up Bat Signal available separately or bundled with the figure that only a Wayne could afford.

Denuo Novo Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper Standard Armor Kit
Have you ever watched a star wars A Stormtrooper cosplayer walks by and wonders what it would cost to buy some armor because you don’t have the skills to build your own? The answer, according to Denuo Novois around $700, assuming you want to look like a First Order Stormtrooperand not like the classic Empire get-at the top. We say nearly $700 because even though it gives you all the white armor pieces, the black neoprene neck seal which sits between the helmet and torso costs an additional $65, while the boots and gloves you’ll need to stock up on. Still, if you don’t know the first thing about vacuum sculpting and forming, it’s not necessarily a lewd way to get yourself a solid costume based on real props used on screen.
