Eaglemoss Debuts Batman Universe Collector’s Busts

Determined to provide fans of the Dark Knight with a line of high quality, expertly sculpted busts that they won’t have to rob a bank to own, Eaglemoss Collections introduces its new line of Batman Universe Collector’s Busts. Officially authorized under license from DC Entertainment and averaging close to 5-1/2 inches in height, each of these richly detailed busts has been crafted of Polystone resin and individually hand painted to satisfy the demands of even the most diehard bat-fan.
Up until now, busts of such size, detail and quality were available to collectors only at prices out of the reach of most fans. But by subscribing to this new series at www.eaglemoss.com/dcbusts, fans can get their hands on BATMAN, the first bust in the collection, risk-free for only $4.95 with free shipping and handling. New busts will be issued monthly for the low price of only $19.95 plus $1.95 shipping and handling. As with all Eaglemoss collections, subscribers have 30 days to examine each bust and may cancel their subscription at any time.
Individual busts will also be available in line look packaging at select comic shops for just $24.95.
Based on iconic depictions of these classic characters and digitally sculpted by Eaglemoss’ expert modelers, the first five busts comprise the first phase of a planned rollout and include BATMAN, THE JOKER, HARLEY QUINN, TWO-FACE and CATWOMAN. Each also comes with a fully illustrated collector’s magazine, providing an in-depth illustrated history of the character from first appearance to present day.
Concepts for future releases will draw from more than 75 years of rich Batman Universe history across all forms of media, including comic books, video games, television, movies – even animation.
