DC Comics has announced that they will be releasing a line of new 7” statues based on their bestselling Dark Nights: Metal series. These statues “honor Greg Capullo’s art from the comic book in stunning detail and are perfect additions to any Metal fan’s collection,” according to the press release.
The line will recreate eight characters from the series in total, including a Batman Who Laughs as a deluxe statue. Fans will also be able to collect Batman with Baby Darkseid, The Red Death, The Drowned, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, The Merciless, and The Devastator. All of the statues feature uniquely-shaped bases that are designed to be configured together in a number of ways, which is a first for DC Collectibles.
The first statue out of the gate will be The Dawnbreaker, who arrives in May 2019 at an MSRP of $85. It features a sculpt by Adrienne Smith and comes with an interchangeable hand that allows collectors to switch between his normal appearance and one where he’s forming a construct.
“We wanted to celebrate DC’s successful run of the Metal series through this statue line,” said DC Collectibles’ creative executive director, Jim Fletcher. “It’s thrilling to see Capullo’s Batmen designs to come to life in 3-D form and we think fans will really enjoy the intricate details and customizable accessories and bases. While not poseable, these statues are basically in scale with all our previous Capullo action figures, so they will be great companion pieces when they are all displayed together.”
