Kotobukiya, the respected Japanese model and sculpture company announces their incredible reimagining of one of the key scenes in Frank Miller’s masterpiece, The Dark Knight Returns: Batman – Hunt the Dark Knight! This four-issue miniseries released in 1986 tells the tale of a future world in which superheroes have retired. An older, angrier Bruce Wayne puts on the costume once again to save Gotham City and in the process encounters one of his most hated enemies, the Joker! Inspired by Miller’s gritty style, the duo presents a dark, dynamic vision that’ll look great on your shelf.
The bulky Dark Knight kneels over the prone Joker, holding him down with one hand on his collar while pulling the other back in preparation for the final strike! The painting too reflects Miller’s artwork with stark colors and bold strokes.
Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe, The Dark Knight Returns Batman vs. Joker stands nearly 12 inches tall (1/6th scale) on a special display base.
The Dark Knight Returns Batman Hunt ARTFX Statue can be pre-ordered HERE for $105. The statue is expected to be released in September 2012.
