DC Collectibles Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review!

Published

on

Entertainment Earth sent over a Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman statue from DC Collectibles, for us to review.  While this statue has been out for a few months, it might be worth the effort for those that initially passed, to give it some more thought.  So sit back, grab a cup of your favorite beverage, and check out what I have to say about this statue.

Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review

While Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice was somewhat of a divisive movie for the DC fan base, it did rake in a ton of cash at the box office, and gave us some very nice collectibles to boot!  Today we are going to take a look at the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman statue.  This piece was produced by DC Collectibles, was sculpted by James Marsano, and is a companion piece to their Armored Batman, Batman, and Wonder Woman statues.

Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review

Close shot to show skin.

The statue comes out of the box in two separate pieces.  You get the completed Superman with poll pre-attached to his knee, and the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice logo base.  The pole attaches to the base to give Superman that appearance of being in flight, ready to rain down punishment on the Dark Knight.

The paint application on this piece is very nice.  There were no issues of over spray on the piece, but the face paint suffers from what most high end collectibles from today suffer from.  Painters try to get as much individual detail as possible into pieces.  Part of this process is by providing freckles and moles to the piece to give it a more “life-like” appearance.  Herein lies the problem.  Instead of accurately placing these beauty marks, painters randomly place them all over the skin.  In today’s world of high definition, oversized screens, it isn’t hard to find blemishes on actor’s faces.  Once we see them on screen, we kind of have an idea of how an actor’s skin looks.  That is why when I get a piece like this, and find freckles in places that they shouldn’t exist, it is sort of off-putting. (click on the image to the right to get a better example.)

The sculpting work of James Marsano is simply fantastic.  I don’t know what technique he used to get Superman costume down, but the end result is remarkable.  It literally looks screen accurate.  That is some precise work that I can only image took a lot of time and effort to produce.

The pose comes straight from the movie, as we see Superman flying in for a punch.  Marsano nailed Henry Cavil’s likeness better than any DC Collectibles movie statue than I have ever seen.  The only thing that keeps this from looking exactly like Cavil is the paint application.  Kudos must go out to Mr. Marsano for near perfect execution in this sculpt.

The cape is cloth and has wire sewn into the sides to allow you to display it in manner that you want to.  I prefer the flowing down the sides look, because to me it looks more natural, but hey if you wanted you could get it to stick up in the air.  While I was put off by the cloth cape in the solicitations, it does give this piece something unique so that you can display it like you want.

Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review

Superman ready to strike!

The base is just a solid piece of resin that is an exact replica of the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice logo.  You really can’t go wrong with this, and I imagine that if you have all four statues together, that it would give a nice aesthetic to your display.

My only concern with this piece is the long term durability of it.  As you can tell, Superman rests on the base via a pole that is firmly planted into his knee.  This pole then attaches straight down into the base.  The only problem with this is the fact that Superman wobbles a bit.  I had him on my kitchen table earlier and I had the pole firmly planted into the base.  The slightest shake to the table made Supes sway back and forth.

While he will not do this as bad upstairs on a display shelf, where I don’t have as much traffic, I do worry about it.  Another thing is the weight of Superman on that pole over a period of years.  You have to wonder if the pole will start to bend, because some of that weight is shifted to the back of the statue.  I guess time will tell on this piece.  But for now I am happy with this statue.

If you are interested in a spot-on likeness of Henry Cavil as Superman, then you don’t want to pass on this statue.  While it will set you back about $120.00, you can’t go wrong with this piece.  DCCollectors.com gives this piece a 4 out of 5!  Skin paint issues aside (which are more my issues than actual issues with the piece), this is an action posed statue that any fan of DC Comics or these particular movies, would love to have in their collection!

Official Images and Press Release of New DC Collectibles Items

Published

on

Earlier today we shared some photos and video of DC Collectibles booth on the show floor of San Diego Comic-Con.  Now DC Collectibles has decided to release a press release along with official photos of their upcoming product releases.

DC COLLECTIBLES GOES FULL THROTTLE AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON WITH BIG 2018 REVEALS

Gotham City Garage Kicks It Into High Gear with New Batgirl and Supergirl Statues Speeding Into Stores

DC Essentials 6.75” Action Figures Designed by Acclaimed Artist Jason Fabok Set to Debut

DC Artists Alley Reveals New, Cutting-Edge Interpretations of Wonder Woman, Batman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn

San Diego, CA – Thursday, July 20, 2017 – DC Collectibles, the award-winning line of collectibles –directly from the source, DC Entertainment–kicked off San Diego Comic-Con: International with several major announcements, including the expansion of its grittiest line of statues, Gotham City Garage. Racing onto shelves in 2018, the biker statues will be joined by an all-new 6.75’’ DC Essentials action figure line starring DC’s most popular Super Heroes and Super-Villains designed by fan-favorite comic book artist Jason Fabok. DC Collectibles also revealed new character additions to the highly anticipated DC Artists Alley designer vinyl series and announced plans to expand its best-selling action figure and statue lines including Batman: The Animated Series, DC Bombshells, and more.

DC Collectibles is doubling down on Gotham City Garage’s growing popularity and will reimagine two new Super Heroes–Batgirl and Supergirl–as bold, fierce, biker statues. The move coincides with DC’s announcement earlier this week that it will publish an all-new Digital First comic book in August inspired by the statue line.

“The idea behind Gotham City Garage is to explore the tough and gritty alter-egos of DC’s most iconic characters such as Wonder Woman and Catwoman, and now Batgirl and Supergirl,” said Jim Fletcher, executive creative director, DC Collectibles. “Just like with DC Bombshells, it’s exciting to see these character designs strike a chord with fans and transcend from statues into comic books and beyond, and we’re eager to find out just how far Gotham City Garage can ride.”

Produced at the 9 scale, Batgirl and Supergirl will join the already released, best-selling Gotham City Garage statues of Catwoman, Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman, and will cruise into stores in 2018.

DC Collectibles will also launch a new 6.75 DC Essentials action figure line that will feature classic DC Universe Rebirth character designs and the greatest range of motion ever produced by the company.

“DC Essentials will be an evergreen action figure line and will feature classic representations of DC Universe characters including Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman, among others,” said Fletcher. “These designs will embody the core of each character and will attract both our most dedicated fans and those just starting out with their collections. We’re thrilled to deliver these figures at the larger 6.75 scale and can’t wait for fans to see the new moveability that allows for more intricate poses. We’re excited to have Jason Fabok on board as the series’ designer–his stunning art style is a perfect match for DC Essentials. ”

The first wave of DC Essentials figures to release in 2018 will include Batman, the Flash, Superman and Aquaman. Wonder Woman, Deathstroke, Green Lantern and Nightwing will debut in 2019.

Also revealed at SDCC were new characters slated to join DC Artists Alley, a series of designer vinyls directly inspired by the popular “Artist Alley” convention experience. Putting artists front and center, DC Artists Alley celebrates each designer’s offbeat art style and offers unique interpretations of DC’s most iconic characters. The new figures revealed today include Wonder Woman by Chris Uminga, Batman by HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque, and Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn by Sho Murase.

Fan-favorite Batman: The Animated Series (BTAS) action-figure line will debut two new villainous offerings in 2018 including a Harley Quinn Expressions Pack and a Jokermobile based on its infamous appearance in the 1990s TV show. Scaled to fit 6 BTAS action figures, the Jokermobile will have working wheels and several light-up features–a perfect mode of transportation for the clown prince of crime.

The acclaimed DC Bombshells universe will also expand in 2018 with new Black Canary and Zatanna characters joining artist Ant Lucia’s popular Designer Series Bombshells action-figure line. Green Lantern Jessica Cruz is the next DC heroine to receive the Bombshells statue treatment and will be reimagined in the classic 1940s art style.

Also on tap for 2018 are additions to best-selling Batman: Black and White and Harley Quinn: Red White and Black statue lines, and an all-new Battle Statue that brings to life the greatest race between DC’s fastest Super Heroes–the Flash and Superman.
