Pop culture collectibles manufacturer Prime 1 Studio announces the release of a statue for Batman Arkham Knight featuring the game’s Batman Beyond skin.
It’s no secret that most products related to the Caped Crusader are a hot commodity, and Batman Arkham Knight is no exception. As it happens, plenty of memorabilia manufactures are using the title’s base assets and Rocksteady Studios’ extensive DLC for the game as models for toys, action figures, or in this case, statues.
The Japan-based company known as Prime 1 Studio recently revealed on its official Instagram account that it will be building a statue inspired by Batman Arkham Knight‘s Batman Beyond skin. However, the manufacturer didn’t provide an exact price or release date for the creation, instead writing that such details will be divulged next month.
Initially introduced as one of the many pre-order bonuses for Batman Arkham Knight prior to its launch, the Batman Beyond skin went on to become one of the title’s more popular suits among fans, so it makes sense to be re-purposed and sold as a sculpture.
Plus, as seen in the image below, the craftsmanship applied to the statue from the artists and designers at Prime 1 Studio is impeccable, for it almost perfectly mirrors the properties for the futuristic suit that can be found in-game.
This won’t be the first time that Prime 1 Studio used effects from Batman Arkham Knight for its merchandise. As it happens, the company made a bust based on the Dark Knight’s alter-ego Bruce Wayne, a $900 Arkham Knight statue, a giant model of the game’s tank-like Batmobile, and numerous other products inspired by the game. If the price of the sculpture for the eponymous villain of the title is any indication of how much the one for the Batman Beyond skin will be, though, fans should expect to pay a pretty penny to own it, especially since its size and scale is so large.
With Prime 1 Studio having put out a slew of Batman Arkham Knight creations, it’s a wonder if the company has plans in store for any other goods that are inspired by Rocksteady Studios’ “ultimate Batman simulator”, particularly now that it’s delving into the game’s DLC. If anything, hopefully the artisans for the Japanese outfit will consider assembling a version of Tim Burton’s 1989 Batmobile sometime in the not-so-distant future, as it would surely please plenty of Dark Knight fans.
