Sideshow, the well-known toy brand, has launched a new work recently! They brought us a Batman Statue with the theme of DC Comics “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns“. It is designed in a very classic pose. Let’s take a look.
This time, the Batman statue is fully sculpted by Sideshow, and joined its famous Premium Format™ Figure series. Its total height is 31.5 inches, approx. 80 cm. Compared with the apple on the side, the overall size is not small.
For guys who are familiar with DC comics, they will very clear where the sculpt of this Batman statue comes from.
The design of the entire statue is inspired by the comic cover of “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns”, and it is also the most well-known silhouette of jumping in lightning. It can be said to be one of the most representative classics of all Batman images!
The work cleverly uses a lightning bolt from the sky as a support to reproduce the great moment when the old Batman in the animation returns to Gotham in a battle suit.
The details of the battle clothes of the statue are richly depicted. The muscle tension in Batman’s whole body is quite strong.
The three-dimensional expression of muscle feeling is also further deepened by using shadow painting.
The surface of the Batman suit also has the expression of scar details, especially the knee part, the damage details of the suit and the blood-stained paint on the surface are still relatively realistic. In addition to highlighting the tragic and solemnity of the old Batman, it also sublimates the spiritual connotation of this work.
The cape fluttering like a gust of wind behind him has great visual tension, fully expressing the overall dynamic of the statue.
The fold details of the cape on the back are very realistic.
At the same time, the damaged content of the cape can also indirectly reflect Batman’s years of hard work in fighting crime.
The head sculpt part reproduces the old state of Batman in the original work. Under the representative short-eared cowl, Batman’s aging and tired expression and the detailed description of the scars on his face is full of charm but also heart-wrenching!
Batman has four iconic Batarang in his right hand and is about to throw the Batarang at the enemy with all his strength at the highest point of the air.
This lightning special effect is also a major highlight of this product. The size of the entire special effects is still relatively huge.
The lightning strikes the Joker-faced gargoyle base, and it blends well with the base. The Joker’s hideous expression and the design of the shattered rocks splashing around are commendable.
It is also worth noting that the lightning special effect also has an LED light-up mechanism, which can perfectly reproduce the Batman classic appearance of “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns” by Frank Miller after lighting up.
This statue not only uses a very classic pose of comic cover, but also the overall portrayal is very brilliant.
For guys who have no idea of the size of this Batman statue, you can refer to the picture above. Basically, the size of this Batman statue is close to a potted plant, which is very suitable for display in your room.
Overall, the performance of this statue is very good, if you like the comic very much, and you are a Batman fan, I believe you will also be very interested in this Batman statue.
