Perhaps you’ve noticed that scene in The Dark Knight Rises trailer where Pittsburgh Steeler’s great, Hines Ward, runs through a football field as it collapses into itself, dressed as a member of the fictitious Gotham Rogues. The scene from the movie was filmed at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh last summer. In October, McFarlane Toys will release a special edition Hines Ward “Gotham Rogues” figure to commemorate this instance where a real-life athlete plays himself in the comic world of Batman. The figure is clad in the black-and-yellow Rogues garb from the movie, and even sports Ward’s real-life tattoo on his right arm.
If you’ve visited our studio, you’ve seen our collection of McFarlane sports figurines, and we can’t wait to add this one to the mix. Pre-order yours now at BigBadToyStore.com.
