Dominate Apokolips with this Play Arts Kai Darkseid

Appearing in comics over a period spanning four decades, Darkseid is one of the most dastardly and authoritarian members of the DC Universe. Modeled after Adolf Hitler, Darkseid’s principal objective is totalitarian control of the charred rubble of Apokolips. The driving force of a militant, state-controlled society, this dude’s idea of paradise is a whole world of submissive citizens ready to follow in his jackbooted footsteps.

One of the most powerful of the New Gods, Darkseid is an essential component of any DC aficionada or aficionado’s collection. Square Enix brings us this eight-inch figure boasting Play Arts Kai craftsmanship. He’s outfitted in a costume inspired by anime aesthetic and features a re-vamped design that stays true to classic versions of Darkseid, but while giving them a special twist. Darkseid comes with variant parts, accessories and a display stand.

Come to the Darkseid. We have cookies. And fascist domination.

Here, he’s gotten a New 52 reboot as the next instalment in the DC “Animated Movie” series, recalling his looks in the original film Justice League: War. He’ll go into intense combat against the Apokolips troops with this six-inch rendering!
