Just when you thought you had as many amazing Batman statues as you could stand, Sideshow Collectibles proves you wrong. The recently revealed DC Comics Premium Format Batman piece impresses immediately, making even the most jaded of collectors take notice.
Measuring in at 22.5 inches tall, the Dark Knight has rarely looked as menacing as he does here. It can be difficult to translate to three dimensions what the best Batman comic book artists seem to convey in their sleep: foreboding. Batman staring down at you from a gargoyle should instill fear at what comeuppance you’re about to experience. This Premium Format statue does a wonderful job of conveying that.
If the sculpting and paintwork on the factory product is half as good as what we’re seeing in the prototype, I’ll be ecstatic. The shading around Batman’s face looks great, as does the work on the gargoyle he’s perched on.
The standout is the work on the cape, with all of its folds and draping as it works its way down to the bottom. Sideshow has captured the drama of what might consider a minor part of the whole, but is in actuality quite important to making Batman feel whole.
Sideshow has also thrown in an alternate hand that allows you the option to display the Caped Crusader grasping his grappling rope. It’s the type of thing that is basically unnecessary but I always appreciate display options, no matter how small.
