The Dark Knight Mini Mine Bat Bomb Prop Replica

Here’s a life-size replica of the mini-mine (aka the “Bat Bomb”) as featured in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.

This is a replica of the coolest bat bomb to be featured on screen. There was a version in Batman and Robin but they were not nearly as compact and nicely designed as the Batman Begins version (which got ranked 12th in Complex’s Top 50 Coolest Batman Gadgets).

Replica details:

  • Mini-mine (safe)
  • Cast in pewter alloy, air-spray matte black (Ø380mm)
  • Red transparent dome (2mm), 13 individual magnets (2*5mm)
  • Black glossy acrylic stand (145*97*4.8mm), metal printed plaque (135*87*0.8mm)

Here’s an image of the weapon in the film Batman Begins:

The only drawback with this item is that the magnets need to be glued on and you have to do it yourself. Nothing a cheap tube of superglue and 15 minutes of your time won’t resolve.

Price to buy one of these replicas is $75. Find it at the link below:

BATMAN BEGINS Grapnel Gun Prop Replica

This is a replica of Batman’s Grapnel Gun from Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.

Batman’s Grapnel Gun was used by the Dark Knight to move from the ground to the rooftops of Gotham City.

This replica comes from the Noble Collection who have produced a number of props from the Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy.

This is a full scale gun replica that measures 16″ in length (including a display) and weighs 8.2 pounds.

There’s a couple of these floating around, usually going for somewhere between $190 and $290 (yes, that much of a difference). The best price going at the moment is via Amazon:

Diamond Select’s limited edition (of 1,500) prop replica of the Batarang from BATMAN BEGINS doesn’t look that great to me, though that could be thanks to their absolutely atrocious promotional image that makes it look warped and all over the place in design.

It’s marketed as “an authentic, life-sized movie replica” that comes “in an elegant black gift box with gold-foil stamping” and includes “a Certificate of Authenticity”.

Packaged: Measures 2″ x 11.5″ x 5.75″.

If you’re a serious Batman fan then you might be keen to get this, but I’m thinking this is only for serious fans who just have to have it all.

One reviewer on Amazon rated it 3/5 stars (but only 1/5 for fun) claiming:

…the item is a bit of a disappointment, it’s kinda small, and none of the batarangs are detachable which though not necessary, would be a nice little touch. The ends of the wings of the two small batarangs are a little uneven. It’s good but not great.

Still, if you want it, there’s apparently only two left on Amazon:
