The Gargoyle protector of Gotham gets a statue from Iron Studios signed by Grampá!

A potential crime weapon, in the shape of a hammer, rests on an old wooden floor at the feet of the world’s greatest detective. In a Gotham City where each day seems darker, a serial killer might be connected to the past of the Dark Knight, who investigates the whole scene, observing and locating clues that only his trained eyes and mind, deductive skills, and sagacity could identify. Presenting a new design, using more credible and utilitarian elements, with a gothic and futuristic tone, the illustrator Rafael Grampá recreated the looks of the greatest protector of Gotham and Iron Studios replicates his art in the statue  Batman by Rafael Grampá Deluxe (signed version) – DC Comics – Art Scale 1/10, in an extremely limited edition with only 100 numbered statues signed by Grampá himself. Iron Studios also bring a regular version of the statue “Batman by Rafael Grampá – DC Comics series #9 – Art Scale 1/10”, without the artist’s signature.

Inspired by the art of the award-winning Brazilian comic book artist that received the Academy Awards of the international comic book stories, the Eisner Awards, in the Best Anthology category in 2008, Grampá gives life to a disturbed vision of the Dark Knight in the DC Comics comic book miniseries, Batman: Gargoyle of Gotham, in which he revisits the hero’s origin, diving into the deepest and darkest corners of human nature. Batman makes the definitive choice to kill Bruce Wayne’s identity forever and embraces the hood full-time and will have to deal with a Rogues Gallery that starts to emerge from the bottom of the city, besides dealing with the nature of evil itself, including the evil that hides in the darkness of his own heart, to face what is coming for his city. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939, as a child, Bruce Wayne watched his parents got brutally murdered in the Crime Alley in Gotham City. Traumatized by their deaths, he dedicated his entire life to become the world’s greatest weapon against crime, the Batman! To become the supreme vigilante, the Dark Knight disciplined his mind and body to achieve the apex of mental and physical superiority in his relentless search for justice. Batman doesn’t have any superhuman powers, using only his intellect, investigative skills, technology, and a well-prepared physique in his crusade against the most dangerous and insane villains of Gotham.

Revealed on November 30th, Thursday, on the panel at Ultra Stage at CCXP 2023, and later exhibited on Iron Studios’ booth, now available for Pre-Order worldwide, this new version of the Dark Knight places Rafael Grampá in a select group of artists such as Ivan ReisMike Deodato Jr.Raphael AlbuquerqueMarcio TakaraEddy Barrows that worked in partnership with Iron Studios in the creation of incredible collectible statues, an absolute success, desired by collectors worldwide.

Daniel Pickett

AFi founder and Editor-In-Chief Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on Bloomberg News, MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
