With the 30th anniversary of The Dark Knight Returns happening in 2016, along with a certain feature film starring Batman that’s inspired by TDKR, DC Collectibles announced that a bust and statue will be made available for purchase in the coming year based on the ever popular Dark Knight. These limited edition statues are certain to be great gifts for the Batman aficionado, and will be released in 2016.

First up is a bust based on Miller’s own art from The Dark Knight Returns. Sculpted by Alterton, this bust has the wrinkled, clothlike cowl, and a menacing scowl, making this bust ready to take on Gotham’s violent Mutant gang. The bust will be available in February in a run of 3000 busts, but no answers on whether you can put a button unlocking a secret cave in it.

The second statue is based on artist Andy Kubert’s take on the Dark Knight designs for the upcoming Dark Knight III: The Master Race. An imposing figure, with powerful fists ready to punch bad guys and feed them their teeth, this 12 inch statue is also sculpted by Alterton will be available on June 2016, and will be a great piece for the discerning collector. Like the bust, it is a limited run; only 5,200 copies will be sold.
