Alfred Pennyworth finally gets the statue he deserves

Let's face it, Alfred Pennyworth is the glue that holds together the Batman Family -- heck, maybe even Gotham itself. Without his advice (and gentle prodding), medical skills, sewing and cooking abilities, tactical support and general resourcefulness, the whole operation could easily go off the rails.

Now Bruce Wayne's tireless butler is at last taking his place alongside the Dark Knight, Robin and Nightwing as an ARTFX+ statue.

Kotobukiya has revealed the Comic-Con International limited-edition Alfred Pennyworth statue, depicted in his classic black butler suit, carrying a tray with a teapot (or is it a carafe?) and cup. Standing a little less than 8 inches tall, the 1/10th-scale figure was sculpted by Keita Misonou.

Those who aren't attending Comic-Con, held July 8-12 in San Diego, will be able to preorder the statue beginning Friday. No price or delivery details have been revealed.
