XM Studios is excited to present the next statue from XM’s DC Samurai Line, Killer Croc! The result of a creative collaboration between Warner Bros. Discovery Consumer Products and XM Studios to showcase the Batman universe in exciting new settings, each painstakingly handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with XM’s famous quality finish, and comes in a bold, dynamic, and story-laden style.
With an unstoppable desire to wreak havoc, a formidable foe appears… Possessing the sharpened instincts of a deadly reptile, razor sharp claws and teeth, and incredible strength, Killer Croc is a nigh unstoppable feral force about to leap into action. Charging forward, he tears through his immediate environment with fearsome makeshift weapons while accompanied by a waniguchi youkai (a Japanese demon).
Like a stealthy predator launching itself dynamically out of the water to catch unsuspecting prey, anyone unfortunate enough to catch this sight before their last moments would be rooted to the spot in fear, with nothing else but a bloody mix of claws and teeth being the last thing that they see. Even the most battle-hardened of warriors would find themselves with shivers down their spine, desperately figuring out how to survive an encounter with this aggressive beast. Few certainly have, as evidenced by the scavenged swords tied to his waist.
Yet, if you peer closer beyond the mishmash of worn-out armour over his thick scaly hide, a haphazardly bandaged head and wounded appearance is certainly a curious find.
What sort of mighty foe was able to inflict such impetuous damage on him? As an accomplished submariner who is as comfortable navigating swampy environments as he is on land, Killer Croc is an unrestrainable force of nature when provoked. Surely it would not be easy to best him in combat. What could have happened?
Such is the tale of Killer Croc, who often comes with layers of complexity with regards to the circumstances he finds himself in. Perhaps that is why Batman, who looks beyond what is presented at the surface, has always felt some degree of empathy towards him…
This statue comes with 3 head switch-outs, a classic nod, one with a bandaged head and one wearing a Namahage (ogre-like demon) mask.
