Kotobukiya DC Comics FRank Miller and Jim Lee Batman & Robin Two-Pack ARTFX+ Statues

DC Entertainment has made it official - Saturday, September 17th 2016, will be BATMAN DAY. The annual fan-favorite event, now in its third year, was first introduced to honor the iconic character's 75th anniversary. Continuing the BATMAN DAY tradition, DC Entertainment has combined forces with thousands of comic book retailers, bookstores, schools and libraries across the country to bring fans exciting festivities in honor of Gotham’s protector.

Kotobukiya’s groundbreaking 1/10th scale DC Comics collection has brought you New 52 heroes and villains, Classic Costume retro-inspired figures, Batman: The Animated Series, and more, and now it adds another important chapter in the history of the Dark Knight with the BATMAN & ROBIN TWO-PACK!

This dynamic duo comes straight from the pages of Frank Miller and Jim Lee’s All Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder, specifically replicating the artist’s work on the cover to issue #9. From that depiction Kotobukiya has crafted a menacing Batman in an aggressive stance and a more light-hearted Robin kneeling while preparing to throw a batarang.

The Caped Crusader is all business with a scowl on his face as he settles into a crouch, leaning forward for balance with his fists balled and ready. Batman’s dark, nearly gray on gray, costume contrasts nicely with the bright red, green, and yellow of Robin’s; the diminutive sidekick wears a big smile on his face along with his original duds including the short-sleeved shirt and vest, gloves, cape, mask, scalloped trunks, and spritely shoes. Both figures are captured with a fantastic attention to detail that highlights clothing elements, facial expressions, and more.

Sculpted by Naoya Muto, Batman stands just over 6 inches tall and Robin under 4 inches (1/10th scale), and of course both figures have magnets in their feet for perfect stability on their included display base.

Available March 2017.
