‘American Psycho’ Cuts Into The Collectibles Action

Before Christian Bale became The Dark Knight, he played another memorable over-the-top role–and now that “psycho” persona can join your action figure collection.

Bale’s turn as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho has now become a 1/6-scale figure from Iconiq Studios, as reported by news.toyark.com, and pre-orders are now live for the collectible. Check out the photos on this page to get an idea of the uncanny resemblance to the actor.

The figure–which stands just under 12 inches tall and boasts 34 points of articulation–is priced at $269.99 and is scheduled for release between first and second quarters of 2022.

This lifelike Patrick Bateman figure comes with two detailed head sculpts (one “mask of sanity” and one blood-soaked “uncontrolled madness” sculpt), a tailored suit, an overcoat, a raincoat, four pairs of hands, a bloody figure base, two business cards, a blood-smeared axe (always handy), a knife and a nail gun (just in case).

American Psycho–directed by Mary Harron from a screenplay she wrote with Guinevere Turner–was based on Bret Easton Ellis’ 1991 novel. The movie–with an all-star cast of Bale, Willem Defoe and Jared Leto–is set in the 1980s and follows Bateman, a self-proclaimed “American psycho”, who morphs from a yuppie investment banker into a serial killer.

The 2000 film–which received generally positive reviews–had a bloody good time at the box office, raking in $34.3 million on a $7-million budget.
