We received an unpainted prototype look at this new statue at Toy Fair (see our story HERE) and now Kotobukiya provides a full color reveal along with details. Presenting the latest in Koto's DC Comics ARTFX Statue line, The Dark Knight Returns: Batman - Hunt the Dark Knight, a reimagining of one of the key scenes in Frank Miller's 1986 masterpiece.
Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns Batman is much thicker and heavier than most representations of the character, and that’s quite apparent here. The bulky Dark Knight kneels over the prone Joker, holding him down with one hand on his collar while pulling the other back in preparation for the final strike! Perfectly recreating the artwork, the statue is intricately detailed with special attention to Batman’s powerful musculature, the rumpled clothing of the evil clown, the furious expression on the dark hero's face, and of course Joker's maniacal laughing. The painting too reflects Miller's artwork with stark colors and bold strokes.
Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe, The Dark Knight Returns Batman VS Joker stands nearly 12 inches tall (1/6th scale) on a special display base. Available in September 2012.
