Loved Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Dark Nights: Metal run and I love that we are getting so many collectibles based on the comic series. A lot of cool, weird characters were introduced and they will translate well into action figure, statue, whatever form that you need to be putting on your shelves. DC Collectibles will be releasing a 7 inch statue series based on the many Batmen from the comics and the first one to hit will be The Dawnbreaker! Check out the official release below!


Darkest Before Dawn: DC Collectibles Brings Dark Nights: Metal to Life

Straight from the pages of the bestselling DARK NIGHTS: METAL comics series comes an all-new line of 7” statues from DC Collectibles. These awesomely dark Batman statues honor Greg Capullo’s art from the comic book in stunning detail and are perfect additions to any Metal fan’s collection.

Launching in May 2019, the line will recreate eight characters from the series in total, including the fearsome Batman Who Laughs as a deluxe statue. You can also look for a Batman with baby Darkseid statue, as well as the six other Dark Multiverse Batmen: The Red Death, The Drowned, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, The Merciless and The Devastator.

Fans looking to build a perfect—and thoroughly metal—display should note that all of the statues feature uniquely shaped bases that are designed to be configured together in a variety of ways. It’s a DC Collectibles first! Even more, some of the pieces also feature interchangeable parts and articulation, another aspect which helps to set these statues apart from the rest.

DARK NIGHTS: METAL BATMAN: THE DAWNBREAKER will be the first statue out of the gate in May 2019 and will be available for purchase at an MSRP of $85.00 . Intricately sculpted by Adrienne Smith, The Dawnbreaker features an interchangeable hand, allowing you to switch between his normal appearance and one where he’s forming a construct.

“We wanted to celebrate DC’s successful run of the Metal series through this statue line,” explained DC Collectibles’ creative executive director, Jim Fletcher. “It’s thrilling to see Capullo’s Batmen designs to come to life in 3-D form and we think fans will really enjoy the intricate details and customizable accessories and bases. While not poseable, these statues are basically in scale with all our previous Capullo action figures, so they will be great companion pieces when they are all displayed together.

When asked how it was working with DC Collectibles on this project, superstar artist, Greg Capullo, couldn’t have been more excited.

“Is this cool or what!?” said Capullo. “I knew Scott and I had created some really fun characters when we were doing Metal. Seeing them brought to life in this way is an amazing feeling.”

With the success of the comics series and the number of metalhead comic fans out there, these statues are likely to move pretty quick. Don’t miss your chance to grab them as they roll out throughout the upcoming year for yourself or any Dark Nights: Metal fan in your life.
