Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman Gets Immortalized With New Statue, Lithographs

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

If you thought Tweeterhead's Batman '66 Yvonne Craig Batgirl statue was something else, wait until you get a load of the company's upcoming Batman Returns Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman maquette. Capturing everything that was awesome about Pfeiffer's memorable portrayal of Selina Kyle in Tim Burton's 1992 sequel, Tweeterhead's statue brings Catwoman's ferocity, charisma and bad-ass attitude to life in great detail.

At 15.5" tall, this is no small piece, but the 1/6 scale does offer Tweeterhead the ability to pack in a lot more detail in the costume. There's a great deal of stitching to render, along with the threading on her boots. While the costume itself is rather plain, the paint app gets the patent leather/vinyl sheen right. Standing atop a miniaturized version of the Shreck's Deparment Store rooftop, Catwoman stands at the ready with her whip poised to strike. It's a familiar pose to anyone that's seen the film, and you can almost hear her giving the security guards inside the store grief over how terrible they are at their jobs.

NECA’s ‘Batman Returns’ Penguin is Disgustingly Awesome

After the success of Batman, Warner Bros. once again tapped Tim Burton to bring the Dark Knight to the sliver screen in the sequel, Batman Returns. While there was no Internet to rampantly speculate about what villain Batman should face off against after the Joker's demise at the conclusion of the 1989 film, the possibilities were endless. Batman's rogue gallery was massive and full of great foils for Bruce Wayne's alter-ego. Imagine the world's surprise when Burton, being as Burton as he could possibly be, tapped Danny DeVito for the role of the Penguin.
Now, some 20+ years later, NECA is finally giving DeVito's Penguin the action figure due he so deserved. Announced at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, the quarter-scale figure captures everything that made the Penguin such a memorable character, right down to the blue blood, natty hair, and toothy grimace that inspired many a nightmare in terrified kids.

Greatest Comic Book Movie Villains

Without a great adversary, what good is a superhero? Without someone to punch in the face, Batman would just be some rich schmuck driving around in a weird-looking tank.

Let’s bring on the bad guys and give them their moment in the sun. With Avengers: Age of Ultron introducing another memorable baddie in the form of James Spader’s titular metallic menace, let’s take some time to run down the 10 greatest superhero movie villains of all time.

Production Design For ‘Batman Returns’ Plays This Stinkin’ City Like A Harp From Hell

Returns00

Tim Burton's Batman movies might not be my favorite version of the character, but there's one thing they definitely have going for them: The set design is amazing, and while Anton Furst's designs for Batman '89 have definitely had their time in the spotlight, Bo Welch's designs for Batman Returns are a little less well-known.

Fortunately, pal Andrew Weiss found a design portfolio while combing through back issues of Starlog at the Internet Archive, and passed them along so that we could have a look at a nightmarish urban hellscape of rocket penguins and fascist architecture. It's... it's a little more enjoyable than it sounds. Check it out below!
