Who says geeky collectibles can’t be beautiful pieces of art? For the first time ever, Pop Life Global and China’s Imperial Palace are releasing an amazing collectible collaboration with DC this summer. I want them all! Someone buy them for me!
The upcoming collectible line includes iconic DC Comics characters such as Batman, Superman, Robin, Deathstroke, Wonder Woman, Nightwing, Joker, Harley Quinn, Green Lantern, Arrow, Flash, and Aquaman.
Fingers crossed for a Catwoman figure!
These stunning pieces are part of the “Creativity and Historical Culture” collection which has “a full range of collectibles, art toys, apparel, homewares, accessories, and other inspired merchandise.”
The announcement was made by Pop Life Global together with Beijing Imperial Court Cultural Development Company.
These new figures “pay homage to the ancient Chinese warriors and soldier armors inspired by the museum collections from the Imperial Palace archives. The Imperial Palace, under the charge of the Palace Museum, is the palatial heart of China. Constructed in 1420 during the early Ming Dynasty, it is China’s best-preserved palace and the largest ancient palatial structure in the world.”
Guenther Hake, CEO of Pop Life Global shared, “The deeply-rooted culture of creativity in our company is the foundation of our success and lies at the core of everything we do. This spirit of creativity inspires our collaborations with the world’s leading artists, leading entertainment brands like DC from Warner Media, and iconic heritage places like the Imperial Palace. With these products, we want to inspire young people in China to stay connected with the beautiful cultural assets the Imperial Palace is managing. Equally important, our mission is to bring China’s rich cultural heritage to a new generation by being at the forefront of creativity and innovative designs, based on and inspired by the Imperial Palace’s art and treasures.”
For those interested, Beijing Imperial Court Cultural Development Company LTD is “an affiliate of the Palace Museum and is devoted to the development and manufacture of Chinese royal artistic works to promote the Chinese royal culture by combining with modern arts.”
The company “strives to bring the rich and splendid Chinese culture to the world with the gifted talents from both home and abroad.”
