Over the weekend, to coincide with the release of The Suicide Squad in theaters and HBO Max, Iron Studios unveiled a new statue. Pre-orders are now open for the King Shark 1/10 Scale Statue. In the film, King Shark, aka Nanaue, is part of a new Task Force X, on a mission to take down a facility housing the dangerous alien known as Starro the Conqueror. The statue stands at 9″ tall on a themed base. It’s priced at $169.99, and will be released in the Second Quarter of 2022. Read on for additional info and the new photos.
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.
