If you had plans on doing something nice and responsible with your new raise or that incoming tax return, this might not be good news for you. In honor of Zack Snyder‘s impending Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Sideshow is selling a life-size collectible of the armored Batman played by Ben Affleck in the movie. As a piece of art, it looks exquisite, and the price certainly reflects that: the collectible can be yours for a single payment of $8,000 or several payments of $1,100. If you’re a big fan of the franchise and the character, that might very well be worth it, but you should try not to think about all the other things that $8,000 can get you. We’re talking sensible flights and accommodations in Paris, Hawaii, or Venice level money here. Large chunk of your student loan type money. But then again….Batman. You can find photos and a thorough description below and you can order the DC Comics Armored Batman DC Comics Life-Size Figure by Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles by clicking here.
