DC Collectibles Announces Dark Nights Metal Statue Line

September 12, 2018
Straight from the pages of the bestselling DARK NIGHTS: METAL comics series comes an all-new line of 7” statues from DC Collectibles. These awesomely dark Batman statues honor Greg Capullo’s art from the comic book in stunning detail and are perfect additions to any Metal fan’s collection.

Launching in May 2019, the line will recreate eight characters from the series in total, including the fearsome Batman Who Laughs as a deluxe statue. You can also look for a Batman with baby Darkseid statue, as well as the six other Dark Multiverse Batmen: The Red Death, The Drowned, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, The Merciless and The Devastator.

Fans looking to build a perfect—and thoroughly metal—display should note that all of the statues feature uniquely shaped bases that are designed to be configured together in a variety of ways. It’s a DC Collectibles first! Even more, some of the pieces also feature interchangeable parts and articulation, another aspect which helps to set these statues apart from the rest.

DARK NIGHTS: METAL BATMAN: THE DAWNBREAKER will be the first statue out of the gate in May 2019 and will be available for purchase at an MSRP of $85.00 . Intricately sculpted by Adrienne Smith, The Dawnbreaker features an interchangeable hand, allowing you 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,” explained 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.”

When asked how it was working with DC Collectibles on this project, superstar artist, Greg Capullo, couldn’t have been more excited.

“Is this cool or what!?” said Capullo. “I knew Scott and I had created some really fun characters when we were doing Metal. Seeing them brought to life in this way is an amazing feeling.”

With the success of the comics series and the number of metalhead comic fans out there, these statues are likely to move pretty quick. Don’t miss your chance to grab them as they roll out throughout the upcoming year for yourself or any Dark Nights: Metal fan in your life.

I usually stick to Kotobukiya Bishoujo statues but these ones look pretty good. Time to pre-order them lol

Ive only ever gotten my hands on one Kotobukiya statue thus far, but the level of detail and quality was immense. Considering this is DC Collectibles though, youre pretty much assured for one hell of a quality product.

This is so cool Ive always hoped for something representing the bad guys from dark metal and these look very well done

Im entirely out of the loop on the Metal series, so it didnt even occur to me that this was probably a villain. Even as Frankenstein/zombie-esque as his head sculpt appears to be, lol.

The most interesting thing about this piece to me, is how the paint apps somehow manage to give it a look as though the art came right off of a comic book page... You almost wouldnt know that this was a three dimensional statue, right off the bat. Pun intended, I guess.

With that said, as interesting as this sucker is to look at, it isnt really my bag. Id never actually heard of the Metal line, prior to seeing posts about it here. But, considering how much this piece reminds me of Psycho Mantis, they could switch up the name to Metal Gear Solid, and then Id flip on a dime and want to get myself one, lol.

Iam sorry. Did you say that accessories will come only if essential sell well?

DC Collectibles is most on statues now. I am afraid that when they finish the BTAS figures they will drop making figures altogether. I don't see that essential line going forward. They had a good thing going with Icons and dropped it.

Nothing cooler then a Batman Green Lantern fusion hero forming tentacle construct's.

A multi-pack or two of these dark Batman figures would be great! Even a Mattel DC Multiverse and the collect and connect would be the Batman who Laughs!!
