“Sometimes the truth isn’t good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded…” – The Dark Knight
When Ashley Wood first teased that there would be a Steel Age Batman coming from threeA, we lost our s#!t. When we saw the concept art and prototypes, we started saving our money because we knew we had to have this one. As part of an officially licensed collaboration with DC Comics Ashely is creating a gritty, alternate DC universe and it looks pretty incredible.
Here is threeA’s official description of the new line of collectibles. 3A is thrilled to announce its collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment. The Greatest DC Comics Super Heroes as you’ve never seen them before! Ashley Wood has envisioned a new universe where the villains have won. The rebirth contingency plan is initiated – Steel Age. Robotic versions of the fallen heroes are forged. Constructed to wage war on crime. A new League to carry on their legacy of Justice. “

This Steel Age, 1/6th scale figure is the first in the line and we can’t WAIT to see what other characters Ashley and threeA will be tackling. We’d LOVE to see a Swamp Thing, Cyborg or Martian Manhunter pop up down the line.
The bat symbol may be gone from the chest but this figure is easily identifiable and completely bad-ass. This figure goes onsale tomorrow, December 31 on the official Bambaland Store page. We do NOT expect that these will last very long so make sure you stop what you are doing and go order yours NOW!
