The Dark Knight Returns, arguably the best Batman story of all time — if not the best superhero comic of all time — is getting a gorgeous new statue from Iron Studios. Scheduled for release in the Summer of 2018, the statue features an iconic pose of Bruce and Carrie mid-jump into the fight somewhere in Gotham. It will retail for $185 and is available for preorder now.
From Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, the amazing duo, Batman & Robin, join the 1/10 art scale series. Standing just about 9 inches tall, these two heroes are sculpted on display bases hovering over a Gotham City themed diorama base.
- 8.90 inches (22.60cm)
- Made of polystone
- Limited edition
- Based on the art of Frank Miller
- Hand painted
One thing I will say is that they could have done a little better job sculpting the city of Gotham underneath them. It just looks a little weird under such a wonderful-looking statue. The main figures of Batman and Robin look incredible. Carrie, especially with her flowing red hair and glasses, stands out. I wish they had been leaping off a rooftop or had no kind of background at all, but that’s okay. Made of polystone, this thing is also going to be pretty heavy. A centerpiece statue, no doubt. You will have to make a ton of room for it, considering the way Batman’s cape juts out from the base.
