Kotobukiya has released photos and details for their newest Batman: The Animated Series Statue. This release is based on Batman’s appearance in the opening credits to the iconic series. It showcases Batman as he stands on a Gotham City rooftop, with lightning at his back. The Opening Sequence Batman ARTFX+ Statue is a 1/10 scale release that stands over 8.5″ tall. It’s currently scheduled for a November release in Japan. Pricing has not been revealed at this time. You can see the photos after the jump.
Batman: The Animated Series was created in the wake of the success of Tim Burton’s Batman films in the 90s. The series enjoyed widespread acclaim thanks to the dynamic animation by Bruce Timm, its Noir inspired aesthetics, and its darker tone that appealed to adult audiences. Now, in honor of the 80th anniversary of Batman, the animated version of the timeless hero is coming back to the ARTFX+ series for the first time in three years.
The statue’s design is based on the iconic title sequence of the series, when the Dark Knight appears on a rooftop in Gotham City with a bold flash of lightning.
The vignette style base resembles the skyline of Gotham City, with a sculpted Bat Signal shining against the nighttime scenery and three dimensional electricity effect parts that give the statue an atmospheric appearance.
Even to this day, the Batman stands at the ready to take down the evil that lurks in the darkness!
