Ever dreamt of having a life-sized Ben Affleck standing guard in your bedroom while you sleep?

This life-sized action figure is based directly on the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And it is simply one of the coolest toys being released in 2016. But this thing won't be cheap!
Just yesterday, Hot Toys announced a 1/6th scale Armored Batman action figure. Now, they are turning this collectable up to 11! The Life-Sized Armored Batman is the first in Hot Toys personal new collection that they are referring to as the Life-Size Masterpiece Series. And it truly is a sight to behold. We have all of the photos of this epic action figure below.
The Life-Sized Armored Batman is movie accurate. And it is decked out in realistic armor as created for the movie. The piece will only be available in select markets. It stands a whopping 6.4ft tall, 7.2ft tall once you have it situated on its custom made base. It also features light-up eyes as seen in the trailers and photos released for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice thus far.

This collectible has been meticulously sculpted direct from the Batsuit and Armor used in the movie. It also has a fabric cape and a circular base with a light function that illuminates the iconic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice logo. It comes with plenty of other special features as well.
