Royal Selangor, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, has announced an inaugural collection spotlighting the Dark Knight and Gotham City’s greatest Super-Villains.
The Limited Edition Batman, the first figurine from this stellar collection, was unveiled on 20 July at the San Diego Comic-Con, one of the largest and most acclaimed pop cultural events in the world.
Gripping his batarang tightly, the Dark Knight looks ready to swoop down from the stone gargoyle and strike criminals that prowl the Gotham city streets. His powerful presence is meticulously captured through his defined muscularity, dramatic folds of his windswept cape and detailed texture of his suit and armour. The fine detailing of the 9-inch pewter figurine is accentuated through polishing and buffing.
Malaysian artist Alan Quah and sculptor Mufizal Mokhtar were commissioned by Royal Selangor to bring the Batman mythos to life.
Limited to 3,000 units worldwide, the figurine is available for pre-order at royalselangor.com and at any Royal Selangor store.
Established in 1885, Royal Selangor offers a wide range of tableware and gift items made out of pewter. Today, Royal Selangor exports to more than 20 countries and can be found in prestigious stores such as Wako in Japan and Harrods in the United Kingdom. It also has its own retail stores in Malaysia, Singapore, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, China and Australia.
