This iteration of Bane comes from the video game Injustice 2, and is part of the Exquisite Mini line from Hiya Toys.
Bane stands about 4 inches tall and is way more articulated than a figure his size should be. Hiya really shines when they make larger, bulky characters, and Bane fits that bill. He features a mix of a harder PVC body with softer rubber-like attachments.
The tubes, vest, belt and kneepads are all separately molded softer pieces that bend out of the way when posing.
And he can pose great! Ball jointed neck, swivel and hinge shoulders, Swivel hinge biceps, ball jointed wrists, torso bakk joint, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swive thighs, double jointed knees, and hinge and swivel ankles. That's a lot to put in a small figure.
You can see that all the tubes all attach to the harness that floats on the main figure. It's not fragile at all, simply bending to get out of the way.
The one flaw I found with this figure - and it's common to mostly all Hiya figures - is the weak wrist pegs. Bane comes with an alternate set of hands, but when I tried to pop one of the fists off I noticed that the peg on the right arm started to whiten - which means if I kept pulling it was going to break off. I stopped trying on that one, the other hand came off more easily.
Like all Exquisite Mini releases - Bane comes with a stand and two stand connectors. The peg fit into the feet is not great so he can tumble over, even with the stand.
