Prime 1 Studio Brings Robin Forever To Collectors’ Batman CollectionsJose Lopez
For a critically-panned and generally frowned upon sequel, Batman Forever is certainly getting a lot of love from the collectibles market recently. From Hot Toys 1:6 scale figures to a JazzInc Dioramas Batmobile to Prime 1 Studio’s 1:3 scale statues, the Joel Schumacher-helmed film has turned out to be pretty darn popular. It just took 26 years. Following up on their previously-announced Val Kilmer as Batman statue, Prime 1 Studio has just revealed a 1:3 scale Chris O’Donnel as Robin and he’s available for preorder now.
I’m not going to lie. I was extremely disappointed with Batman Forever when I first watched it in movie theaters. Coming off of Tim Burton’s amazing first two installments, Schumacher’s third entry was not what I was hoping for, to say the least. That said, I’ve softened over the decades in my opinion of it, now fully accepting the film as goofy fun. Whatever my thoughts, it cannot be denied that Prime 1 Studio has knocked this statue out of the park and expertly captured the movie’s take on Robin.
The statue measures at 35 inches tall, so any lack of accuracy would be quite noticeable at this scale. That isn’t a concern, however, as the sculpt is pure Chris O’Donnell, even with the domino mask covering his upper face.The figure’s body and base also look amazing and I am extremely impressed with what Prime 1 has done here. While the pose could maybe be more dynamic, it can’t be understated how cool he still looks. Kudos to them for producing what might be the best Batman Forever Robin collectible out there.
The Prime 1 Studio Batman Forever Robin Museum Masterline Series 1:3 Scale Statue is available for preorder now and is schedule for a Q4, 2022 – Q1, 2023 release.
“Riddler and Two-Face could make a pretty lethal combination, figured you could use a hand.” – Robin to Batman
Prime 1 Studio is once again proud to present a classic addition to the Museum Masterline Series: the 1/3 Scale MMBM-03: ROBIN from BATMAN FOREVER!
1995’s Batman Forever introduced us to a new member of the Bat family: Robin! Robin was always meant to be the bright and shining balance to Batman’s dark and brooding ways. And now, Prime 1 Studio brings you a handsome, powerful, and impressive Robin to complete the Caped Crusaders!
Our skillful artists have, yet again, performed at their absolute best by presenting a screen-accurate Robin from Batman Forever. Shown here, descending steps on a Batcave-themed base, our 35-inch-tall Robin, exudes confidence and sheer perfection. The breathtaking likeness of his face, the manicured styling of his hair, and the impeccable anatomical sculpting of his form, all shower praises on our sculpting team’s talents. Not to be outdone, our painters have taken the film reference to heart as they recreated the Boy Wonder’s suit’s subtle metallic finish, the exacting fidelity of the reds and greens, and even the lifelike rendering of his complexion.
Quality is not undersold on this piece as Robin is equipped with a synthetic leather cape, lined with shiny, yellow satin fabric. Gone are the days of a Robin in shorts as descends to the Batcave with a full suit of bullet-resistant armor. The base is emblazoned with the famous R logo for Robin, as denizens of the cave punctuate the perimeter of this pedestal.
If you are a fan of Batman Forever, you owe it to yourself to pre-order Robin and complete the Dynamic Duo today!
