Iron Studios Takes A Bite Out Of Our Collections With 1/10 Art Scale King Shark StatueJose Lopez
f you asked me what C-Level DC Comics character would suddenly be one of the most popular fan-favorites around this year, I would likely never have guessed King Shark. The villain started as a 1990s Superboy foe, for goodness’ sake! Now he’s on the hit Harley Quinn animated series streaming on HBO Max and one of the breakout stars of the new The Suicide Squad film, which was just released. With all of that attention, its no surprise that King Shark is also getting a 1/10 Art Scale statue from Iron Studios, which is available for preorder now.
I enjoyed James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad sequel quite a lot, so I’m fully onboard with the King Shark love that is flourishing as a result. Iron Studios very subtly catches the appeal of the character as he appears in the film with an excellent sculpt and the perfect amount of dark humor. King Shark eating what remains of his foe, casually standing there in his ridiculous board shorts, is spot on.
The only thing that would make this piece better would be Sylvester Stallone’s voice somehow coming out of it, asking if we wanted to be his new friends. I can’t wait to watch The Suicide Squad again and I cannot wait to have this hilarious King Shark statue in my collection.
The Iron Studios The Suicide Squad – King Shark – 1/10 Art Scale Statue is available for preorder now and is slated for a Q3, 2022 release date.
The Suicide Squad\’s voracious, chubby King Shark in an Iron Studios statue!
The corpulent creature, wearing only a pair of shorts, opens its deadly mouth, showing dozens of sharp triangular teeth, to enjoy a peculiar and bizarre snack. Ignoring the wounds and scars spread across his thick blue-gray skin, apparently relaxed, he is always ready and willing to satiate his constant and ravenous appetite. Represented in the statue \”King Shark BDS Art Scale 1/10 – The Suicide Squad – Iron Studios\”, we present the most feared (and sometimes comical) ocean predator in the DC universe and member of the Suicide Squad.
Created in comics by writer Karl Kesel in 1994, he has emerged as the enemy of the more contemporary version of Superboy. The son of a mythological being called the God Shark, Nanaue was born in Hawaii, and he is an anthropomorphic humanoid shark and has become better known as the King Shark. Nanaue, who has enhanced strength and endurance, can swim at high speeds and is resistant to low temperatures. With the physiology of a shark, it can breathe underwater, has many teeth, and has an avid anthropophagus appetite.
In the film The Suicide Squad, written and directed by James Gunn, as well as in the comic book, King Shark is selected and recruited by Amanda Waller, the ambivalent director of the Suicide Squad\’s deadly missions. He is sent on a mission to the South American island nation of Corto Maltese, where they must destroy a prison and a laboratory that holds political prisoners and secret experiments. The Squad is a task force of convicted villains who work for the government in exchange for favors or reduced sentences. Depicted in CGI, Nanaue received the voice of legendary actor Sylvester Stallone.
This is the first statue in Iron Studios\’ promising line derived from The Suicide Squad, pre-revealed in the third edition of Inside Iron Studios on its YouTube channel. The item is already available for Pre-Order.
