Holy collectibles, Batman!
PureArts, a merch maker best known for its detailed video game-inspired collectibles, has collaborated with Warner Bros. Consumer Products for a series of collectibles inspired by Batman (1989). The first product to be released in this series is a Batman 1:1 Cowl Replica. Using 3D scans of Batman’s original prop cowl from the film, PureArts has made the replica accurate in both size and feel using a poly-hybrid mixed media.
The displayable cowl is supported by a miniature version of the Gotham City mayoral house statue, which stands atop a base featuring the Batman logo. The cowl also features a removable magnetic Batman emblem on its chest.
There will be 1,989 (get it?) of this cowl available to purchase, and PureArts will also release 800 exclusive editions of the replica. Exclusive to purearts.com, this version will also include a replica batarang — The Dark Knight’s bat-shaped, sharp-edged boomerangs.
The Batman 1:1 Cowl is available to preorder for $799 starting today, June 9, on purearts.com. The estimated delivery date is between April and June of next year.
