If this feels like a bit of deja vu, don't freak out. Hot Toys did release one of these in 2008 for The Dark Knight. This is a new version for the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. I'm sure this new Bat-pod is different and better in many ways, though I don't exactly see where or how...
The good thing is, if you've found that you've been making much more disposable income since 2008, you won't miss out on the chance to own a Bat-pod. This is indeed a serious and important life goal for many people. This 1/6-scale replica, as you can see, is perfectly sized to accommodate a 1/6-scale Batman... one made by Hot Toys, for instance. It also packs light-up headlights powered by AAA batteries as the previous one did. The estimated release date is November 2012, and you can be on your way to Bat-pod ownership for a measly $274.99.
