XM Studios is excited to present our next DC Premium Collectibles – Batman Samurai Line statue, The Penguin Daimyo! The unique Samurai line is a result of a creative collaboration between Warner Bros. Consumer Products and XM Studios to showcase the Batman universe in exciting new settings.
A piece power-packed with details, this 1:4 statue focuses on The Penguin, one of Batman’s most prominent adversaries. Daimyo (Japanese for “Feudal Lord”) is the title given to powerful landholding magnate lords in Feudal Japan. A cunning, resourceful lord with strong connections, The Penguin Daimyo luxuriates in his Norimono (a Japanese Palanquin used by nobilities), accompanied by his penguin underlings.
The elaborate Norimono is embellished with traditional Japanese inspired motifs, intricate gold ornaments, and details. Recurring elements related to The Penguin decorate the main panels and roof of the Norimono.
Two penguin bodyguards who are of a bigger build carrying the Norimono. The smaller penguin underling serves sake with a side of gunpower for the Daimyo’s consideration. Each of the penguins dons a kasa (Japanese traditional straw hat) and carries various explosives in their backpack, ready to launch destructive firepower when required.
At the feet of The Penguin Daimyo is something interesting… gems in a chest with an emblem most resembling The Joker Orochi’s Oni inspired mask and a basket of fish with dynamite socked through the mouth. Who is the Daimyo making dealings with?
The Penguin Daimyo switch-outs includes 3 head sculpt – 1 spotting a broad grin and his signature monocle, 1 with a gleeful grin with his signature monocle, and 1 wearing an oni-inspired bird-like mask. His left-hand holds either his signature umbrella or a gunbai (a Japanese war fan used as a signaling device). His right-hand switch-outs include a gun and a katana (Japanese sword) held at the hip.
The Penguin Daimyo 1:4 statue, with its intricate and elaborate detailing befitting of Daimyo’s status as a wealthy magnate with strong connections and resources at his beck and call, is a piece not to be missed.
