My son loves Batman. He also thinks that Bane is one of the coolest villains. While the character was terribly portrayed on the big screen in the Batman & Robin film, I too think he's one of the coolest.
At the flea market I found the 5" version of Bane from the Batman The Animated Series released by Kenner in 1994. The figure comes in a "Venom" tube and a body-slam arm action that is activated from his back.
