Fools Paradise -- Bane is Joining the Ride Series
Fools Paradise is teasing an upcoming new ‘Ride’ series release featuring Bane. This follows a growing list of DC Universe-inspired releases including the Last Ride featuring the caped crusader, the Keiko Joker Ride release, and the Batman vs. Superman Lowfool drops. The post mentions Thailand Toy Expo 2017 (5.4 – 5.7), which we assume means the toy will be displayed in proto form there. Fools Paradise often reveals protos for upcoming projects at TTE.
