The roster of pricey pop culture statues continues to grow. A new Poison Ivy figure will run Batman superfans almost $1,400 to own. It’s manufactured by Prime 1 Studio as part of its Museum Masterline series. [Thanks, Dengeki Hobby!]
Formally called the Poison Ivy Batman: Hush (Skin Color Version), the new Poison Ivy figure depicts the iconic Batman villain as she appears in the 2002 “Hush” storyline. There is one difference, however. This version shows Ivy with a natural skin tone. A second Prime 1 Batman: Hush figure shows Ivy with a more “canon-friendly” light green skin tone.
The Museum Masterline Poison Ivy figure is designed at 1/3rd scale and stands at 78.4cm tall (about 30 inches). The design shows Ivy sitting on one of her mutated vines. It costs about $1,349 on Prime 1 Studio’s site, but its Japanese retail price is 193,490 Yen (about $1,490).
Batman: Hush ran in Batman issues #608 to #619 from 2002 to 2003. It was written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair. The story followed Batman as he fought to unravel a grand conspiracy against him. Those involved included Batman’s enemies like Killer Croc, the Joker, the Riddler, with the plan masterminded by a new villain: A bandaged man called “Hush.” In the story, Poison Ivy uses her pheremone-based mind-control powers to manipulate Catwoman and even Superman into acting against Batman. Batman: Hush was later adapted into an animated film in 2019.
The Batman: Hush Poison Ivy figure is available for pre-order. Prime 1 Studio also produced a NieR Automata 2B figure.
