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:

When it comes to prop replica’s of the Batarang’s from Christopher Nolan’s BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT, I can’t say I’ve been terribly impressed by any of them.

My personal preference is to lean towards Noble Collections’ THE DARK KNIGHT Batarang and display, mainly because it looks like a cleaner product to my eyes and isn’t that expensive (but it’s not a limited edition).

Then there’s DC Comics’ release (pictured above). Their Batarang replicas (also from THE DARK KNIGHT) are a Limited Edition of 1,500.

This release was cast from the actual props (so are actual sized) and are individually hand-painted. They come mounted on a display base and measure approximately 5” high x 5”deep x 7.5” wide.

As with nearly all Limited Edition release it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Released in 2008 you can still buy them now with a few still left on Amazon. Here’s the link you need:

Check out this high grade replica of the Batarang from Christopher Nolan’s THE DARK KNIGHT.

Crafted by The Noble Collection based on the design in the film, this officially licensed replica measures 9-inches wide (including the display).

Looks pretty cool but I have to say no matter how I search I can’t seem to find a lot of information on what this is actually made out of or just how “high grade” it really is.

In any case, it’s generally priced around the $69 mark wherever you look:

THE DARK KNIGHT Batarang Prop Replica with Display (on Amazon) $68.99
THE DARK KNIGHT Batarang Prop Replica with Display (from Entertainment Earth) $68.99

You might save a handful of dollars if you can snap it up on auction at eBay:
