XM Studios’ deft melding of a feudal Japan with its dystopian future is demonstrated to spectacular effect in its Samurai Series, which explores the eternal conflict between good and evil.
Explicit in its symbolism, Batman Shogun astride his war horse tramples the colossal statue of his arch foe the Joker, now in ruins. The armour, whilst authentic to the Edo period in style and fabrication, takes on an undeniably bat-like aesthetic.
This replica, in pewter embellished with 24K gilding, reproduces every element in exacting detail. The base is modeled in bonded porcelain.
Limited to 200 pieces.
Size approx. 31 x 24 x 30 cm
