Batman Black and White statues

Post by Juggernaut on Wed Jan 09, 2013 11:06 am

Hey all,

Just wondering if anyone else is a collector of DC Collectibles/DC Direct's Batman Black and White statue series?

My current collection consists of:
Batman - Lee Bermejo
Batman (Arkham Asylum) - Dave Cortez
Batman - Frank Quitely
Joker - Brian Bolland
Batman - Jock
Batman (New 52) - Jim Lee
Batman - Kelley Jones (2nd Edition)
Bane - Kelley Jones
Batman (Beyond) - Dustin Nguyen
Batman - Frank Miller (2nd Edition)

I'd love to hear if anyone else collects these, and what your collection currently contains?

At the moment, they're all in their boxes, as I'm moving into my new place in the next fortnight. I will definitely update with a few pics.

I only started collecting about 5 months ago, when I fancied the Arkham Asylum version of Bats, and really like a lot of interpretations of the characters in Statue form. They're quite neat too, being approx 7" in height, they'll go nicely in a glass cabinet or on each bookshelf. Very Happy

2 bits of news:
- Although not one of the 'Black and White series', I picked up this awesome Batman Arkham City Harley Quinn statue from my local comic shop (bare in mind these are quick iPhone photos). It's pretty awesome!





- I also picked up another Black and White statue, which is Darwyn Cooke's Batman (I'll take proper photos of this one when I show off the others in a couple of weeks).

Personally I have the Bermejo, Jim Lee and Bolland black and white Jokers and the Frank Miller, Wagner and Arkham Asylum black and white Batman statues.

I'd never go completist on this line, but there's certainly quite a few others I'd like to get some day, however cost and space are both limiting factors right now.

Really like that Arkham Harley too. I should try and grab one before they sell through.

Ah sweet, those Bermejo Jokers go for heaps on eBay. I wish I had known about them at the time they were out. Sad

With regards to the Arkham statues, they've revealed the next two as Joker and Nightwing (I think I'm going to pick those up as well!):

They look awesome and I've always liked the black and white Batman line. Statues always have great detail but I find the pricing to be unreasonable most of the time.

That's the problem with a line like this, it is sometimes hard to know which pieces are going to catch fire and skyrocket, and which won't.

I'm a Joker collector anyway, so I had the Bermejo Joker on pre-order, but even I was surprised at how quickly that piece sold through and jumped in price.

As to the upcoming Arkham statues, I'll no doubt grab Joker, but will probably pass on Nightwing. Cool that they seem to be continuing the line though.
