With thousands of comics, movies and television episodes starring them, Batman and Robin are DC Comics mainstays. And while audiences will have to wait until 2017's "Justice League" to see the caped crusader on the big screen again, fans of collectibles will be able to snag the Dark Knight and the Boy Wonder a few months earlier in miniature statue form.
Kotobukiya is releasing a 1/10th scale ARTFX two-pack statue based on comic artist Jim Lee's interpretation of the two characters. The 6-inch tall Batman figure sports the classic gray Batman outfit with a dark blue-gray cape.
With his arms poised at the ready and fists tightly clenched, this Batman's pose is menacing. He's also adopted a wide stance, signaling that he's willing to dispatch of any potential foes. His cape is blowing to his left, almost as if it were still in motion. Crouched low on one knee and aiming a Batarang, Robin appears equally aggressive. He's smirking slightly, confident that he and Batman can take on the opponents that have stepped up to challenge them. Both figures come with a magnetic display base, keeping them stable wherever you choose to show them off.
Veteran sculptor Naoya Muto, who has also worked on other classic and retro DC Comics pieces, crafted these carefully designed pieces of art. They are available for pre-order at a price of $99.99 and expected to ship March 2017.
