Prime 1 Studio has released photos and details for their upcoming statue based on The Merciless from the DC Comics Dark Nights: Metal story arc. The Bruce Wayne from Earth-12 spent 2 years, along with Wonder Woman, fighting the God of War; Ares. Thinking the only way to defeat him, Batman puts on Ares’ mystical helmet. The power of the helmet corrupts him, removing all morality, and causing him to kill Wonder Woman, and all who get in his way as he takes the mantle of The Merciless.
The Merciless 1/3 Scale Statue stands at 44″ tall. The statue shows him lifting his sword high, as he stands on a specialized statue base that features a memorial to Wonder Woman. The Merciless includes two interchangeable portraits. It will be priced at $1,349. They are also offering an Exclusive Edition of the statue. The EX version includes a third portrait, featuring an unmasked Bruce Wayne head sculpt. This version is priced at $1,399.

“My whole life, I had been afraid of doing what I knew needed to be done. Afraid to give all of myself to the battle. The helmet showed me that my codes and rules were naive. That all that truly mattered was victory. And now I would finally take it for myself.”
Prime 1 Studio is proud to present the latest addition to the Museum Masterline DC Metal Series! The God of War, MMDCMT-04: 1/3 Scale The Merciless statue!
Bruce Wayne is back and this time he isn’t playing for the good guys! In a parallel universe, known as Earth -12, Ares, the God of War has created a helmet that amplifies his power a hundredfold! In this universe, Diana, better known as Wonder Woman, teams up with Batman for a period of two years in an attempt to stop Ares from taking over the world. In this attempt to finally kill Ares, Batman dawns the God of War’s helmet despite Wonder Woman’s warning about it’s corrupting influence. In doing this, Batman completely loses his own moral code and becomes mad with power. He kills the love of his life Diana and goes on a slaughtering spree, fully enveloping the mantle of the God of War and becoming The Merciless!
We have captured The Merciless in the most iconic of poses based on the concept by the revered Comic Artist, Jason Fabok. Batman stands 44 inches tall upon a rocky-volcanic themed base. The Merciless holds the infamous God Killer sword high and mighty, ready to destroy anyone who crosses his path.
The base is reminiscent of classic Batman pieces with a gargoyle protruding through the front, following the base theme of trademark gargoyles for all of our Dark Nights pieces! It also features the memorial of Diana, a reminder to all the destruction the helmet could cause. The base, pose, and armor brilliantly come together to convey the essence of his power, vigor, and ruthlessness! We have crafted this Dark Night with the most precise attention to detail to bring you the most comic accurate The Merciless on the market! A must-have for DC Metal fans everywhere!
