So, looking at what's being offered here, the pairing that I think most collectors would want would be Commissioner Jim Gordon with the Bat-Signal, of course. But, Hot Toys knows that, so what are they doing? They're making so that if you want Jim Gordon and the Bat-Signal that you have to buy the set that also includes John Blake-- forcing you to pay more for the things that you really want.
Yep, there is no set that comes with just Commissioner Gordon and the Bat-Signal. Instead, you have the offering of John Blake with the Bat-Signal.
The John Blake figure looks amazing-- with one of Hot Toys' dead-on likenesses-- but in the grand scheme of things, most collectors aren't really clamoring for a John Blake figure. I think that he'd be an offering for more of the hard-core Batman or Hot Toys collectors.
What most collectors would want, however, is definitely a Commissioner Gordon figure.
So, pick your poison, folks. If you want Gordon and the Bat-Signal, you're gonna have to buy the larger-- more expensive set-- that includes John Blake.

JOHN BLAKE WITH BAT-SIGNAL SET
Both of these sets are slated for an August 2015 release, but you know Hot Toys, expect them to be later than that.
The set that includes Blake, Gordon and the Bat-Signal will retail for $419.99 while the set with Blake and the Bat-Signal is set at $279.99
