This Batman Beyond Inspired Arkham Knight Statue Costs $900 (GALLERY)
A number of years have passed since Rocksteady Studios‘ Batman: Arkham Knight was released, but Prime 1 Studio hasn’t given up on the caped crusader yet. The merchandise-maker has produced a brand new figure of the Dark Knight based on his Batman Beyond inspired costume featured in the game. While the Batman: Arkham Knight statue is indeed a beautiful sight, fans may have to be as rich as Bruce Wayne to buy it. But in honor of Batman day, we can dream.
Batman Beyond is a popular incarnation of Batman, one that sees teenager Terry McGinnis don the cowl in the futuristic year of 2019. The spin-off started as a sort-of sequel to the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series, but has since become a success in its own right. It would then make sense for Arkham Knight to feature an alternate skin based on the character’s red and black appearance, albeit with a few Arkham-y design changes.
Prime 1 Studio has now recreated this look into an extremely detailed Arkham Knight statue, but this time sporting a snowy white color scheme. The figure sees the brooding hero standing in a gargoyle-like pose, watching over his city of Gotham. Batman can instead be overlooking a buyer’s display shelf for the hefty price of $939 USD. While expensive, this pricing is not out of the ordinary given the overall quality of the figure and the cost of similar Prime 1 statues.
While the Arkham series is pretty much done, the release of this statue does keep the franchise alive for the time being. In the meantime, Batman has been brawling in NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice 2, where the latest Hellboy-inclusive fighter pack has been unveiled over the last few weeks. Next up is the Mortal Kombat character of Raiden, who comes to the game in October.
What do you think? Does this Batman: Arkham Knight statue need to cost so much, or is this a great figure and worthy of the expensive pricing? Should Rocksteady make another Arkham game?
