The Batman is now available to stream on HBO Max, and the merchandise is still being pushed pretty hard. For those collectors out there looking for some premium pieces of BatMerch, JND Studios and the Big Bad Toy Store have something just for them.
The 28″ tall statue of the Dark Knight features swappable heads, removing the cowl if you choose. Like many high-end statues we cover here, the price typically means quality construction. The skin is made of silicone, the eyes of glass, and the hair is rooted. I’m not sure who is clamoring for Robert Pattinson’s greasy hair look from The Batman, but it’s your money.
How much? Between $2,499 and $2,999.99 depending on the retailer. Yup.
JND Studios is very proud of our 8th project, Batman and Bruce Wayne from the film, The Batman. With a newly developed silicone painting method, we will be able to add even more details to the face of our statues IN PRODUCTION that will bring our characters to life in the true sense of words, hyperreal movie statue. So please support JND Studios, as we make your collection STAND APART.

I’m not going to lie. I forgot that I watched The Batman on HBO Max two weeks ago. Nothing about the film stuck out to me, and I had to be reminded that Catwoman was supposedly in the movie. Unfortunately, aside from some great setpieces, this film commits the greatest sin a Batman movie could commit: being totally unmemorable.
Even Batman Begins stands out because it was a radical departure from WB’s previous entries. Snyder’s Batman, though bland, was a savage brawler with a great suit that homaged The Dark Knight Returns. Robby Pattinson’s Batman? No clue what he was going for. Sigh. Let’s hope the inevitable sequels improve things.
