June has come to an end, and a lot has been happening at the Queen Studios headquarters. First, we are elated to announce a brand-new partnership in Africa. We’ve released pre-orders for five new products. We’re planning big things for San Diego Comic Con, and finally a new addition to INART's 1/6 Lord of the Rings Gandalf the Grey figure.
A New Partnership
‘The art of Perfection’, the four words Queen Studios’ new partners, Symbiote Premium Collectibles use to describe this awesome artform. Symbiote are an African premium collectables company who operate out of South Africa. They are devoted to delivering the highest quality premium collectibles with unparalleled service to collectors. Symbiote's main objective is to make these extremely premium products more affordable and accessible to everyone, helping fellow collectors grow their collections while sharing a common passion. They exclusively offer all of Queen Studios DC collectable to every collector across Africa.
The Joker 1/1 Life-Size Statue
In June, we officially started the pre-order for The Joker 1/1 life-size limited edition statue. This captures the Clown Prince of Crime from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight (2008) from one of his most iconic scenes. The Joker is stood in his iconic purple pinstriped suit, while he holds his calling card in his right hand. His clothes are made of the finest fabrics, and are hand tailored to fit just like the movie. His soft to the touch skin is made of platinum silicone, creating an unparalleled character likeness, before his make up is expertly applied and his hair is punched on by one, cut and styled.
1/7 Jurassic World Dominion Blue and Beta Statue
To celebrate the release of Jurassic World Dominion on June 10th in Mainland China, the Queen Studios team started the pre-order for this incredible 1/7 scale statue inspired by two of the key characters from the movie. To bring an extra dynamic to the statue, the team have designed a unique light-up Jurrasic World logo which comes with the statue, as well as a sound feature which recreates the sound of Blue and Beta. It's been a life-long ambition for the team to work with this IP, and we're glad to present our first statue to you with more planned for later this year.
Mark 85 1/1 Life-Size Statue
In June, the QS team finally released the much anticipated Iron Man Mark 85 life-size statue, the very statue Ronnie Stark has been asking for! The Mark LXXXV (Mark 85) was first seen in Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame. The design of the armor on the Mark 85 features a more muscular look, the contours in the armor make the statue look very strong and powerful, creating a heroic feeling. This 1/1 statue is very imposing, with a smoth metalic look and feel that bringing the character to life making it the perfect piece for Iron Man superfans who have the space.
Captain America 1/1 Bust
At the end of 2021, QS shared the images of the Life-size Captain America bust. This incredible piece caught the attention of collectors and was highly praised, but there was one aspect the vast majority of collectors pointed out. He needed his shield!
After taking the feedback on board, the team went away, spoke with Marvel, and made the much needed changes. In June, the Captain America life-size bust was finally made available for PO and is available in the USA.
Adding another staff for our 1/6 Gandalf the Grey
The INART sixth scale Gandalf figure was released in May, but the response from the community was clear, he needed the staff of Moria! Many international collectors such as the Collectors Weekly crew and Zach to name a few, reached out to the team suggesting that the PO was paused while INART could add a second staff. This campaign caught hold in China, and after careful consideration and a discussion with the licesnsor, the team are please to announce that this figure will now include the second staff. We'd like to say a bigh thanks to everyone in the community, as we continue to deliver the next generation of sixth scale figures.
