Robin: Damian Wayne ARTFX+ statue coming soon from Kotobukiya!
Just in time for San Diego Comic- Con and the return of Damian Wayne to comics in Robin Rises Omega #1.
Kotobukiya has done an exceptional job of capturing the essence of Damian’s attitude!
So much detail, I would like to see a hooded variant offered!
Anybody picking one of these up or own any of the previously released statues? Leave a comment in the comments section below.
This will be my second ARTFX+ statue and stand next to The 75th anniversary Batman statue that was announced earlier this year.

Damian Wayne was created by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert during the Batman and Son story arc in 2006 within the pages of Batman. This was however not the first technical appearance of Damian, as he was inspired by the events of Mike W. Barr and Jerry Bingham’s Batman: Son of the Demon where Batman and Talia Al Ghul had their encounter which lead to the conception of a nameless son. Up until Infinite Crisis, “Son of the Demon” was considered out of continuity until it was brought back by Morrison when he took over Batman. Morrison’s version is slightly different in that Bruce claims that he was drugged and essentially raped by Talia, In “Son of the Demon,” their encounter was consensual.
Morrison explains in Wizard Magazine #182:
“For a long time DC said Son of the Demon was out of continuity. Now it just kind of out of continuity. I didn’t actually read it before I started writing this. I messed up a lot of details, like Batman wasn’t drugged when he was having sex with Talia and it didn’t take place in the desert. I was relying on shaky memories. But now we have this new “Superboy punch” continuity. People still don’t realize how that single punch was to cover everyone’s ass.”
The “Superboy punch” Morrison referred to was the event within Infinite Crisis where Superboy Prime punches through the “walls of reality” resulting in many continuity resets and changes like the resurrection of Jason Todd.
