koto1-social

With the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice now just a little more than two months away, there will be little rest for collectors — or their wallets. Joining the rapidly growing list of movie merchandise this morning are these Armored Batman and Superman ARTFX+ statues from Kotobukiya.

Sold separately, either of these 1/10th-scale statues would look nice on any shelf, but displayed together, they create a diorama of the film’s title stars brawling.

Alfred Pennyworth finally gets the statue he deserves

Let’s face it, Alfred Pennyworth is the glue that holds together the Batman Family — heck, maybe even Gotham itself. Without his advice (and gentle prodding), medical skills, sewing and cooking abilities, tactical support and general resourcefulness, the whole operation could easily go off the rails.

Now Bruce Wayne’s tireless butler is at last taking his place alongside the Dark Knight, Robin and Nightwing as an ARTFX+ statue.
