DC Collectibles Batman Black and White Tony Millionaire Batman StatueThe Tony Millionaire Batman Statue is many many years in the making. A long time ago, I believe when DC Collectibles was still DC Direct, we were kicking around ideas for exclusives - I brought up a few of my favorite artists, people I thought would be fun to see do Batman and I asked about two of them as strong possibilities. The other artist went on to do some Batman art for another company, but this was prototyped and shown at Toy Fair in 2013 - stuff happens, as they say, and he didn't make it out until 2015 as originally intended as an Entertainment Earth exclusive. So I'm biased, obviously.

If you're a fan of the band They Might Be Giants or the comics Sock Monkey or Maakies, you've probably seen Tony Millionaire's artwork. He was also responsible for the stylings of the animated Uncle Gabby on Adult Swim as well as SNL's wonderful Maakies shorts - many of which featured the voice of his brother-in-law, Andy Richter. I'm a fan. Most of the artists of these black and white statues contributed to the comics or cartoons, and while there is a Tony Millionaire Batman comic he's not exactly famous because of it. He's more known for his old houses, his ships, and his primates. This roughly 6 1/2-inch tall statue has a huge, flowing cape plus a slightly more haggard version of the Bat than we're used to seeing. He's clean-shaven but he's clearly a little older and a little more likely to have been building ships in bottles. Also, his physique is - as odd as this is to say - more convincingly realistic than most interpretations of the comic detective.

Since it's a statue, this resin collectible has no articulation - it is what you see here. It's pretty neat too, but it's also an item for a more narrow audience. It's a Batman for people who don't necessarily love the ultra-heroics, the Atlas physiques, it's a Batman that has taken a few more punches and spent a little less time at the gym than his similarly named counterparts. The boots and gloves are glossy, plus there are numerous wonderful sharp flourishes between the boots and gloves thanks to sculptor Tony Cipriano. They're thin and pointy, so be careful when displaying this - falling would be bad. The cape alone if a vast undertaking, covered in creases and flowing with a life of its own.

When it comes to action figures, you buy them because you like the character, or they're fun, or they're cheap. Statues are more of a relationship - you have to find somewhere to display it, and you need to take good care of it because it's expensive and snapping a cape isn't quite the same as losing a minor accessory. With a display base and little else, this is a gorgeous figure that is hugely appealing if you're a fan of the artist. And if not, you're probably very confused to see something like this exist. Believe you me, it's awesome - if you get it.
