Long before Warner Bros. made a full length animated movie about the Dark Knight Returns, Batman: The Animated series gave us an alternate take on Batman in Legends of the Dark Knight. Now, Diamond Select Toys has taken the look of the animated series characters and turned them into two new busts for your Nerd Room of Doom.

In Gotham City, there are many stories about Batman, and in nearly every story there is a Robin. These resin busts of Batman and Robin are based on a child’s story about the dynamic duo, as seen in the Batman: The Animated Series episode “Legends of the Dark Knight.” Inspired by the classic comic book storyline, the episode showed a bigger, more brutal Batman and his new Robin, Carrie Kelly, taking on mutants in a dystopic future Gotham City. Dark Knight Batman measures over 6 inches tall, while Dark Knight Robin measures approximately 5 inches tall; both are in scale to other Batman: TAS busts, and each sits atop an art-deco pedestal inspired by Gotham City architecture.

Each of the busts is limited to 3,000 units and have a suggest retail price of $59.99.
