Batman Returns to His Roots in New Eaglemoss Statues

Batman has seen many generations over his year since his debut in 1939 during Detective Comics #27. Most superheroes have had drastic costume alterations since their debuts and Batman is no different. With Batman's 80th Anniversary last year, it is not surprising the dark knight is still under the spotlight and Eaglemoss is here to show him off. This time they are bringing the decades of Batman back to life with new statues. Each statue represents each generation of the dark knight from his first appearance to his most modern generation outfit in 2010. This time we are covering Batman costumes from 1940, 1950, and 1960. His first appearance is a nice slick outfit that features him in a simple pose with his arms crossed. This costume just screams first appearance from the odd cowl, the darker cape, and the stylish purple gloves. Next, we get the 1950's costume that shows a happier Batman and the more iconic blue and light gray colors. The last Eaglemoss Batman costume is from the 1960s where gets that iconic yellow trim around the bat symbol and this time he is posed in a running motion.

Each Batman Decades Eaglemoss statue is priced at $24.99. They will all come with a collectible magazine and they would all look great alongside any Batman comic from that year. More statues will be shown here on Bleeding Cool so stay tuned Batfans. Pre-orders for the 1940s costume is here, the 1950s costume here, and the 1960s costume here.
