Paragon FX Group has announced the launch of its 89 “Batman:” Modular Utility Grapnel Set. The multi-purpose, hand-held unit allowed for “Batman” to store numerous items on his utility belt yet deploy them all from a single device. The Paragon FX Group team have recreated the device out of CNC machined aluminum.
“We knew from the beginning that this would be one of our largest and most ambitious projects,” says Tyler Ham, creative director, Paragon. “The goal was to engineer a full-size replica that looks and feels like a real piece of ‘Batman's’ tech. We wanted everything to be cold to the touch and have a real-world heft and feel."
The limited-edition set contains a machined aluminum hand unit, grapnel utility attachment, machined brass and aluminum utility dart/grapnel hook, bolo attachment, custom equipment case with laser cut insert and a certificate of authenticity.
The product has been designed with the growing adult collector market in mind. In December, NPD Group released a report showing that “kidults” are responsible for one-fourth of all toy sales annually, around $9 billion worth, and are the biggest driver of growth throughout the industry.
