Prolific designer toy artist Jame Groman, best known for the Madballs toy series, is bringing his twisted and grotesque designs, recently released his designs of Batman and the Rogues Gallery. It will be a part of the upcoming DC Artist Alley designer vinyl collaboration with DC Collectibles, and will feature unique renderings of Batman, Killer Croc, Joker, and Two Face.
The figures will be 7″-scale and vinyl, and they were on display at the DesignerCon Convention in Anaheim, CA at the DC Collectibles booth. Groman had this to say about these designs:
“When DC Collectibles asked me to design and sculpt my own renditions of DC’s iconic Dark Knight and a few of his villainous adversaries, I was excited and intrigued. Growing up, I wasn’t as big a fan of costumed heroes like most of my friends and was usually drawn to characters like Swamp Thing, Monster of Frankenstein and Werewolf by Night. With that said, I’ve always been a Batman fan, mostly because of his dark nature and origins, and he has THE BEST villains. Working with Jim Fletcher and Trevor Zammit at DC Collectibles on these figures has been so creatively satisfying! It was interesting to see just how far we could take the designs but still remain respectful of each character’s basic DNA. I can only hope this collection leads to even more collaborations with DC Collectibles.”
