Fans of Batman Returns can get excited because Iron Studios is bringing one of the film’s memorable villains to life in 1/10th scale. Danny Devito’s tale on the Penguin is the newest addition to the company’s Batman Returns line, following hot on the heels of the Michelle Pfeifer’s Catwoman statue. 

I’ve always preferred Tim Burton’s gothic holiday sequel over his original entry in the Batman franchise. While it’s hard to beat Jack Nicholson’s Joker, there is just something about the twisted, darkly comedic fairytale that Burton brings to life with Returns. Devito’s Oswald Cobblepot is a big part of that, bringing to life one of the Caped Crusader’s adversaries in a unique, bizarre way. 

This Iron Studios statue captures this iteration of the Penguin nicely, picturing him in his sewer lair, umbrella at the ready. Adding his insane rubber ducky vehicle and the weapon used penguins is genius and I can’t imagine this statue without them. Everything about Burton’s Penguin is absurd and that’s why he works so well.

With Catwoman and Penguin announced, I’m eager to see when Iron Studios will reveal the Batman himself. They already have announced a statue based on his appearance in the original film, along with the Batmobile, but I’m definitely going to need one to go with the Batman Returns crew.

Iron Studios presents the sinister Penguin from the hit 1992 film, Batman Returns!

Oswald Cobblepot was born in Gotham’s aristocratic high society, but due to his deformities, he was abandoned by his parents as a baby. Created as the attraction of a freak show, he returns 33 years later as the leader of the Red Triangle Circus Gang, looking for revenge. This version of him in this film is much more tragic and malevolent compared to his original comic book version—a more comical take on his backstory—and according to director Tim Burton, it was inspired by the classic 1920 German horror movie Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari, visually influenced by his first version of  Batman: The Animated Series by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini of the same year.

In this gorgeous diorama statue, the villain seemingly lands at the top of the staircase to his lair with his signature sadistic smile and special flying umbrella. The Penguin is dressed in his formal attire wearing a top hat and an overcoat in shades of black and gray, where 2 of his pet penguins lead him down to his floating duck vehicle—emerging from Gotham’s icy underground river galleries.
