Although he wears no mask and his outfit consists of a black suit and bow tie, Alfred Pennyworth is among the most recognizable comic book characters from DC Comics’ classic stable of super heroes and villains. And now the Alfred’s long history is honored with a San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusive ARTFX+ statue by Kotobukiya! Although Kotobukiya is known for making ridiculously beautiful statues, this Comic-Con release has to be one of the more random exclusives of the summer (even if it is technically a Batman statue).
Alfred Pennyworth could never have expected that following in his father’s footsteps as the Wayne family butler would lead to his raising the young Bruce Wayne into adulthood after the death of his parents, Thomas and Martha. Alternating between the roles of butler, mentor, and even father figure, Alfred has become indispensable to both Bruce Wayne and his alter ego of Batman.
Sculpted by Keita Misonou, the San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusive DC Comics Alfred Pennyworth ARTFX+ statue Features the character in his classic butler suit, carrying a tray with a teapot and cup, always ready to attend to Mr. Wayne. The statue is 1/10th scale (standing just under 8” tall), and includes magnets in its feet for extra stability when placed on the Batman, Robin (Damian Wayne), Nightwing, or other ARTFX+ statue bases.
Collectors can purchase this exclusive at the Kotobukiya SDCC booth and thru a limited kotous.com non-attendee pre-order event beginning this Friday, June 12th at 10am PDT.
