DC Comics’ King of the Seven Seas will finally get his moment in the sun with the upcoming Aquaman Premium Format Figure from Sideshow Collectibles.

Depicted holding a trident while standing atop an Atlantean-themed base, the statue comes in two versions: the classic Aquaman, with short-cropped hair, or the Sideshow-exclusive, with long hair, shaggy beard and harpoon hand.

Sideshow Collectibles’ Premium Format statues are nothing if not detailed, and, well, pricey.

Take, for instance, this one, inspired by Batman from Christopher Nolan’s 2008 film The Dark Knight. Boasting screen-accurate detail, and resembling star Christian Bale (naturally), the statue stands 20 inches tall on its base. Draped in a velvety cape, Batman’s armor and utility belt are meticulously recreated. The Sideshow-exclusive version also comes with an interchangeable head that simulates Lucius Fox’s powerful sonar vision technology.
