Sideshow Collectibles and Prime 1 Studios have released The Batman Special Art Edition Statues.
Prime 1 Studio is incredibly proud to present the unbelievable 1:3 Scale THE BATMAN Special Art Edition Statue from THE BATMAN!
At almost 35 inches tall, Prime 1 Studio’s 1:3 Scale Museum Masterline THE BATMAN Special Art Edition Statue is based on Jim Lee’s breathtaking DC Fandome illustration from 2020’s DC Fandome Event. Prime 1 Studio created this work of art to take advantage of every opportunity to showcase this newest Batman and to shine a spotlight on how awesome this new design aesthetic is.
Prime 1 Studio’s artist team took the kernel of Jim Lee’s artwork and embellished it to push the realism and drama. Inspired by the film, our artists have pushed the boundaries of what’s possible to bring you an exciting take on the Caped Crusader.
You can easily see from his head alone, the leather-like texture and intricate stitching on his cowl, and subtle facial features in the lower half of his face…these have been executed to perfection. His armor is both solid form and brutal function rolled into one. It gives him a menacing silhouette, and also the protection he needs to do his job effectively. You can see every stitch, every dent, every texture, every pouch, and every strap as if it were the real thing.
While he looks like a night creature devoid of color, our painters took great care in differentiating the multitude of armor pieces, cloth textures, and other aspects of the suit to portray that his costume is made up of numerous parts…and not just a solid block of darkness. We have employed many different finishes and painting techniques to bring out the stark realism of this piece. We wanted to showcase how Jim Lee’s drawing could inspire realism in a statue.
Perched atop an iconic gargoyle, Batman is ready to take on Gotham City’s most superstitious, and cowardly lot. And the best news? The Batman Special Art Edition Statue is also ready to occupy your very own shelf!
