DC Trinity- Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman Get the Designer Collectible Toy Treatment from Artist Tracy Tubera

Batman Designer Collectible Toy

When you need to go stealth, you put on sneakers. The Limited Edition Batman Designer Collectible Toy by artist Tracy Tubera hunts crime from the shadows in the finest shoes that a billionaire can buy.

ARTIST STATEMENT:

I have always loved the design and colors of SNEAKERS. The bright colors and intricate designs are the same reasons why I love COMIC BOOKS/SUPER HEROES. Also, there is always the story behind a certain Super Hero. Their SECRET ORIGIN. The amazing story of how a character got his/her powers. Or the incredible circumstances that caused a character to become a Super Hero. Most sneakers also have their own “Secret Origin”. The process that it took a designer to get to the final look of a sneaker. What inspired the look of a shoe. What influenced the use of certain materials or colors. So many things in common that I always felt needed to be explored.

These vinyl figures are what I call S.H.S. aka Super Heroes in Sneakers- two things that meant a lot to me growing up and still do to this day. Two completely different cultures mashed together to create a new visual of things most people wouldn’t normally see together. I always wondered what kicks my favorite Super Hero would wear. That’s why I would create these illustrations and now DESIGNER COLLECTIBLE TOYS!

“I am VENGEANCE. I am the NIGHT. I AM BATMAN!” BRUCE is the second of the DC TRINITY. A man of pure DETERMINATION and INTELLECT. Although he has no powers, BRUCE’s unending quest to stop all crime is what drives him every day. I always saw BRUCE as a NINJA with a CAPE. A Martial Arts master always ready for anything. So, I designed this art figure in a stance that shows his readiness to STRIKE. BRUCE needed Sneakers that could support his NINJA moves. So I gave him Sneakers that are LOW to the ground and LIGHT enough, so as to not slow him down. Sneakers that are meant for a HERO with the MENTALITY to never quit!

Pre-orders for the Batman Designer Collectible Toy by artist Tracy Tubera will begin Tuesday, March 10th between 12pm-3pm PST. The figure will be priced at $135 USD.

“Truth, Justice, and the American Way.” CLARK is the most POWERFUL Hero in the DC UNIVERSE and the symbol of HOPE that all Heroes rally behind. It was only natural when designing the DC TRINITY that he be the first art figure. For this piece, I wanted to showcase CLARK’s strength and power like never before. I wanted to depict him flying high, about to swoop into ACTION. I decided to pay my respects to the classic cover art of SUPERMAN #1 and design CLARK in a similar pose. I created the illusion of him flying by using his cape as the base of the figure. Now CLARK floats above METROPOLIS wearing Sneakers that only someone with great power can wear. Sneakers fit for a Hero who FLIES HIGH and uses all his STRENGTH to save the day.

“I will FIGHT for those who cannot FIGHT for THEMSELVES.” The last Hero to round out the DC TRINITY is DIANA. A POWERFUL WARRIOR PRINCESS willing to do whatever it takes to bring JUSTICE to the WORLD. I wanted to depict DIANA having that perfect BALANCE of STRENGTH and BEAUTY. I wanted her to look as RIPPED and ATHLETIC as the male characters I design, but still look BEAUTIFUL. She had to look like she could hang with the BIG GUNS and DEFEAT them if she had to. I also wanted MOVEMENT in this art figure, so her minimalistic, stylized hair flows in the wind to match her flowing GOLDEN LASSO (which Doubles as a SHOE LACE!). I wanted DIANA to have Sneakers that would fit a BATTLE READY WARRIOR of Old. So I took inspiration from some CLASSIC KICKS and gave them a higher collar to mimic a GLADIATOR BOOT. Giving DIANA a Classic Warrior’s shoe with some CLASSIC SNEAKER HEAD STYLE.
