Last September, Warner Bros. and Rocksteady announced two special editions for Batman: Arkham Knight. One would come with a Batmobile statue, while the other would come with a Batman statue. Unfortunately Warner Bros. was forced to cancel the Batmobile edition due to quality control issues.
Arkhamverse broke the news after being tipped by customers who received cancellation emails, and Rocksteady released a statement on their Batman: Arkham Knight forums:
Dear Batman: Arkham Fans,
We regret to inform you that we are not able to release the Batmobile Collector’s Edition of Batman: Arkham Knight due to unforeseen circumstances that greatly compromised the quality of this extremely limited run of product.
We are deeply apologetic for this unfortunate outcome. If you did pre-order the Batmobile Collector’s Edition, please go to the retail location where you pre-ordered the product and you will receive a full refund of your deposit or it can be rolled over to another Batman: Arkham Knight edition or another product of your choice.
We will be providing everyone who purchases Batman: Arkham Knight with the New 52 skin pack, including Batman, Robin and Nightwing, free of charge.
The good news? Batman: Arkham Knight is finally coming out next week! It hits stores on June 23 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
