SDCC 2012: Sideshow Collectibles DC Comics Statues

It’s no surprise that one of the main focuses at Sideshow’s booth was on DC, and more precisely on Batman. In fact, there were only three non-Batman DC figures there: a bust and a full statue of Superman and a very awesome Premium Format Green Lantern. While Green Lantern isn’t usually my thing, I love that base! There was also a Batman bust, but they’re really not my jam: if I had one in my house I’d constantly be thinking ‘where’s the rest of him?’

The big pieces were their 1/4 scale Batman line featuring (of course) Batman, Poison Ivy and the Joker. Batman looks amazing, and I like the sculpt. Enough to plop down $400? Possibly! The Joker is really the star of the show, but I don’t know if I could ever have anything that large and unnerving in my house. Poison Ivy is, to me, a missed opportunity: the sculpt looks great, but her face falls a little flat and I don’t know why her stomach is exposed. It kind of makes no sense, and ruins a statue that I was actually looking forward to. Check out everything after the jump!
