A Kotobukiya Japanese
A classic returns! One of
the original and most popular DC Comics ARTFX Statues is
back in a new version to thrill fans all over again. The
comic book Dark Knight returns; where once he was the blue-suited
Jim Lee Hush version, Bruce Wayne is now Batman Black
Costume Version! Inspired by the magnificent art of Lee in
the seminal 2002 storyline pitting Batman against some of
his most diabolical enemies, the original ARTFX Statue
captured the Caped Crusader as he appeared then. It’s only
fitting that with Jim Lee drawing Batman in the current DC
52 Justice League that the classic Batman return in a
tremendous all-new color scheme with some minor adjustments
to the sculpt. Batman is forever, and ready to fight crime
on your shelves!
With his battle-tattered cape swirling dynamically around
him, Batman strikes an intimidating pose designed to strike
fear into the hearts of the evil doers of Gotham City.
Leaping into the fray against the Joker or Two-Face, Bruce
prepares a wide-legged stance for optimal balance while
holding back his cape with one arm and keeping the other
free to punch or pull a needed item from his utility belt!
The highly detailed sculpt and paint shadowing reveal the
billionaire playboy’s muscular physique, trained to the peak
of human perfection and highlighted by the skin-tight Batman
outfit. The detail on the Dark Knight is just as good as it
was on the original version, with expert touches including
the belt, swirling cape, and of course the stern head sculpt.
Meanwhile, the new black and gray costume colors lend a
darker, grittier look to Batman that makes him blend in even
better with the night.
