DC Designer Series recently released the images for two unique collectables. Available starting February 2019, one looks beautiful and serene and the other, well. You can be the one to judge.
The first statue is of an embrace between Nightwing and Batgirl. And it’s so joyful to see designer Ryan Sook creating this piece. That pairing needs more nurturing, and the Batkids have to stop dying. Sook contributes to DC Comics as a colorist, inker, and cover painter. Justice League: Generation Lost vol. 1 is one of his past works.
Nightwing & Batgirl
Ryan Sook has created the ultimate Nightwing and Batgirl statue celebrating the star-crossed lovers and partners in crime.
The statue is priced at $250.00 USD and designed to pop out in 3D.
Joker as Imposter Batman
The second statue is haunting. What can make Batman look more intimidating? A: The Joker becoming Batman’s Imposter! Wait, no…that’s just terrifying.
Now, this six-scale piece is done masterfully, taking three artists to design and place together: Kojun (Head Sculpt) JC. Hong (Head Paint) Jae-sung, Eom (Head Art Direction).
The highly stylistic collectable figure is sophisticatedly crafted based on Jared Leto’s image as the Joker from the movie, clad in a specially designed, never-before-seen Batsuit in the Joker’s signature purple and green colors and decorated with his unique tattoo prints. It also features a masked head sculpt revealing the Joker’s sinister grin, 2 blood-stained batarangs, a flag gun, and a Suicide Squad-themed figure stand with character backdrop. This unique Joker/Batman collectable figure will be the jewel in the crown of your Hot Toys collection!
Priced at $264.00, the Batman Imposter Joker comes with a box. What’s in the box?! One (1) mask with Jered Leto’s Joker grinning – One (1) pair of fists – One (1) right hand for holding Batarang – One (1) right hand for holding a gun – One (1) gripping right hand – One (1) relaxed left hand. Now, I wonder if this is hinting towards the next DCEU story?
