I wonder if they had gone with a little more translucence on the pieces if it would have given it that more ethereal look rather than the stone statue look it kind of has now.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Agree. Looks like stone to me.

I was thinking about the rogues the other day and how they each represent a fragment of Bruce/Batman that he must overcome. They each represent a fragment of himself. This is what makes the rogues so compelling.

Scarecrow. Fear
Joker. Chaos
Hatter. Madness
Freeze. Attachment
Ivy. Lust
Man Bat. Uninhibited Barbarism.
Penguin. Power and Corruption
Bane. Strength and Destructive Virtue
Two Face. Duality of Good & Evil
Riddler. Intelligence and Mental Dominance
Catwoman. Greed
Croc. Primal Violence
Ras. Order
Clayface. Losing oneself in symbolism (theatricality)

Each villain is a fragment of our anti hero in that they share a piece of who he is. The difference being their trait is untethered. There is nothing holding it back.
These villain archetypes are entirely what they are at their core. A statue of these characters should 100% capture this element. You need to see who they are.

My largest concern is with how some absolutely critical characters are not represented while a characters like Harley Quinn and Catwoman are there. I’m especially missing Riddler.

It’s based on artwork and they were absent in the art . So why would they call this statue being based off Finch art then change it to suit people’s personal preference ? It defeats purpose as sculpted art imo if they did .

Just to check. This doesnt come with an art print right? I had heard that XM pieces usually come with an art print and expected a piece like this to have an art print of his concept but didnt get anything like that in the box.

I thought he did the concept for the statue though, not that it was a piece of existing art that they based a statue on.

Also, didn't XM say there was a Riddler Easter Egg on it somewhere? Has anyone found it?

I don't think Bane is looking at Batman in this.

Just the Marvel 1/4 and Batman Samurai 1/4 lines have artprints, itīs a license thing.

Well finally the other box turned up and I could put it together. Waited since Friday but it was worth the wait. Lovely piece.
