Although he didn’t get the kind of screentime Thanos had in the MCU, Darkseid was still a menacing figure in the soon-to-be-defunct Snyderverse. His more significant presence in the director’s cut of the film showed that he could have been one hell of a foe for the small group of demigods and metahumans.
Regardless of the DCEU’s fate, the film’s version of Darkseid lives on thanks to the collectibles market. One such item is a massive 1:1 bust of the legendary DC Comics baddie made by Queen Studios.
Although Darkseid is stunning, the bust is probably easier to care for than other DCEU statues we’ve seen in the past from this studio. The ruler of Apokolips does not have individually rooted hair or silicone skin. Instead, it looks like Darkseid is made out of mainly resin and polyurethane.
The New God does, however, come with glass eyes that are lit via LEDs, as is the base. On the backside of the base sits a smaller version of Darkseid on a throne.
Of course, like many other Queen Studios releases we’ve covered in the past, this mega-bust isn’t available in the United States. So only Darkseid fans in Mainland China, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa may drop a few grand on this 1:1 sculpture.
If you are from one of those areas listed above, make sure to pre-order your Darkseid statue soon because only 99 of these will be made.
The New Gods may have been some of Jack Kirby’s best work in comics. It’s too bad we may never see them properly represented on the big screen. What do you think? Can James Gunn right the ship and bring about a new comic book movie renaissance? Let us know below.[Source: Queen Studios]
