    Bat Two Face from Dark Knight

    Looks great, he really shouldn't pick at that.

    That's a photoshop fake from what I've heard.

    [edit]I double checked the thread about this going on at toymania and one of the pics posted was supposed to have been photoshopped. If the one you posted is indeed the real one, that is WAY too extreme for a movie so marketed to kids in my opinion.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Fake or not, but that's the freakiest Two-Face I've ever seen
    But I actually like it, looks like something Tim Burton would come up with

    I dunno about photoshopping. Rich Johnston is usually on the money with this stuff.

    Yeah, I had edited my post about that. Two pics were posted at toymania and I was mistaken on which one was said to be photoshopped.

    No doubt it's the real deal. My problems with it is it is too extreme for a movie so heavily marketed to kids and it looks like bad CGI. Like those stretched faced mummies from The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.

    Its kind of hard to not market Batman to kids. He's all over the place and highly recognizable to kids. I was at the 89 Batman and a mom dragged her little kids out of there because of the dark overtones.

    Like I said, it looks like dated CGI from those Mummy movies.

    Yeah, the Cease and Desists from WB went out a little while ago. Based on a Two Face figure I've seen online, that picture wasn't too far off the mark. Gruesome, but not too far from the skeleton pirates in Pirates of The Caribbean. If kids today could handle that bit of nastiness...

    I'm conflicted on this. For one, I wish Johnston hadn't posted that pic with absolutely no spoiler warning. He usually puts those types of spoiler images on a separate page with a link. But, I think the make-up looks great, and I don't think it looks fake or CG. Nolan and company used very little CG in the previous movie, and I'm guessing they are doing the same again. As a diehard Batman fan, its nice to see Two-Face done right.

    But man, that is WAY extreme. And no offense Timothy, but that is far more disturbing than any Pirates characters. He looks like he has had his skin peeled off. I thought of the guy from the first Hellraiser movie when I saw it. I'm really thinking I can't take my son to see this movie now. And it will kill him because he loves Batman, and the toys are out and right there in front of his face.

    I 'm not sure they should have marketed mainstream toys from this movie. Figures from DC Direct aimed at collectors and only at comic shops would be okay, but I think this is a bit much.

    Maybe I'm an old fuddy-dud. And I certainly wouldn't want to censor Nolan's great work, but I just don't think this movie should be marketed toward young kids based on what I've seen thus far.

    That being said, I can't wait to see it myself, but a certain young Bat-fan is either going to be sorely disappointed, or deeply disturbed.
