Iron Studios Batman 1/10 Art Scale Statue, Batman Returns (1992)



From the 1992 sequel to the TIm Burton Batman movie, Batman Returns, comes this latest 1/10 Art Scale statue from Iron Studios. The piece has the Michael Keaton Batman atop a bat-signal that itself is surrounded by rooftop gargoyles.


The 13-inch high polystone statue will be a quarter 2 release in 2022.



A concrete totem-shaped base, surrounded by gargoyles shaped like Chimeras, serves as a platform for one of Gotham's most striking symbols, the Bat-signal, which is a powerful spotlight used by law enforcement officers led by the admirable Commissioner Jim Gordon. The Bat sign is used to summon Gotham City's most dedicated defender. With his symbol reflected in the skies, the Dark Knight answers the call and scales the artifact, hidden by the shadows of his dense black cape that surrounds his body, like the great wings of a bat, symbol of his identity and cause.


Thus, Iron Studios proudly presents its statue "Batman Deluxe Art Scale 1/10 - Batman Returns - Iron Studios", inspired by the classic 1992 version directed by Tim Burton, who once again brought the Dark Knight to the big screen, starting his first film franchise.



In the sequel of the movie Batman (1989), actor Michael Keaton, in the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman, once again re-emerges as the city's protective agent, acting alongside the police force in fighting crime. The challenge of this crusade becomes even greater with the appearance of the Red Triangle Circus Gang led by the fearsome Penguin (Danny DeVito), a villain rejected from his origins, abandoned by his aristocratic parents due to his congenital deformities, who returns seeking revenge. The enigmatic Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer), the feline villain who has a romantic and troubled relationship with the night hero. Both villains are manipulated by the corrupt tycoon Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) and his illicit schemes for greed and power.


Batman is added to the list alongside the already announced statues "Penguin - Batman Returns - Art Scale 1/10" and "Catwoman - Batman Returns - Art Scale 1/10" by Iron Studios, forming the trio of main characters in the line derived from this iconic version of the Dark Knight. A hit with fans and critics, the film was nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Visual Effects and Best Makeup.

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...
