For the devoted throng of enthusiasts pining over the cancellation of the pricey, top-end “Batmobile” variant of the Caped Crusader’s long-awaited video game adventure, the Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition is likely to be the next best thing. Released in June, the amply packed set comes with the game; a lush 80-page, color art book; a metal disc case; a printed comic book (“Batman: Arkham Knight, #0”); downloadable content (including “The New 52 Skins Pack” and “Harley Quinn Story Pack”); and a striking 13.5-inch Batman statue designed by Triforce.
Veteran suppliers of pack-in collectibles for high profile video games like The Last of Us and Batman: Arkham Origins, Triforce’s contribution to the Batman Arkham: Knight Limited Edition is certain to appeal to connoisseurs intent on securing the ultimate version of the game. The dusky, two-part statue is comprised of a detailed 9-inch Batman figure and a matching base that’s been sculpted to resemble the towering metropolitan skyline of Gotham City. In addition to bearing the pedestal that anchors the figure in place, inserting (three AAA) batteries and flicking a switch on the base (that’s hidden beneath a removable skyscraper) delivers illumination from below which makes the presentation all the more eye-catching.
Triforce’s depiction of the iconic DC Comics superhero accompanies the other physical and digital bonuses of the Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition, which officially released June 23rd for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $99.99 USD.
