I recently wrote about my fascination with these 1/6 Scale Figure with posts about of my 1/6 Scale Hot Toys Batman, The Dark Knight here, here and here.
I am so madly taken by this figure and the rest of the 1/6 scale toys! Unfortunately, I had to watch out for my spending as the economy has not been friendly lately.

As a closing note, I now know why there is a community of 1/6 Scale Military figure collectors. These are so fascinating!
