Iron Studios 1/10 Art Scale King Shark Statue, The Suicide Squad



As James Gunn's Suicide Squad movie hits our cinema screens, Iron Studios have confirmed that they will be releasing a number of statues from the movie, starting with a 1/10 Art Scale statue of King Shark. The polystone statue shows King Shark in his board shorts, posed on a diorama base and with his mouth open and ready to snack on a leg of one of his victims.


King Shark will be a 2nd Quarter release in 2022 (April-June).



The corpulent creature, wearing only a pair of shorts, opens its deadly mouth, showing dozens of sharp triangular teeth, to enjoy a peculiar and bizarre snack. Ignoring the wounds and scars spread across his thick blue-gray skin, apparently relaxed, he is always ready and willing to satiate his constant and ravenous appetite. Represented in the statue "King Shark BDS Art Scale 1/10 - The Suicide Squad - Iron Studios", we present the most feared (and sometimes comical) ocean predator in the DC universe and member of the Suicide Squad.

Created in comics by writer Karl Kesel in 1994, he has emerged as the enemy of the more contemporary version of Superboy. The son of a mythological being called the God Shark, Nanaue was born in Hawaii, and he is an anthropomorphic humanoid shark and has become better known as the King Shark. Nanaue, who has enhanced strength and endurance, can swim at high speeds and is resistant to low temperatures. With the physiology of a shark, it can breathe underwater, has many teeth, and has an avid anthropophagus appetite.


In the film The Suicide Squad, written and directed by James Gunn, as well as in the comic book, King Shark is selected and recruited by Amanda Waller, the ambivalent director of the Suicide Squad's deadly missions. He is sent on a mission to the South American island nation of Corto Maltese, where they must destroy a prison and a laboratory that holds political prisoners and secret experiments. The Squad is a task force of convicted villains who work for the government in exchange for favors or reduced sentences. Depicted in CGI, Nanaue received the voice of legendary actor Sylvester Stallone.


This is the first statue in Iron Studios' promising line derived from The Suicide Squad, pre-revealed in the third edition of Inside Iron Studios on its YouTube channel. The item is already available for Pre-Order.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
