It’s the Man of Steel versus the man known as “The Greatest of All Time” in this statue that features Superman taking on Muhammad Ali.
Based on the cover art of the original 1978 tabloid version of the book “All-New Collectors’ Edition: Superman vs. Muhammad Ali,” this classic scene of the two greats squaring off against one another is available in 3-D form for the first time.
The release of this statue coincides with the reprinting of the story in two hardcover editions.
This hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statue includes a logo base, measures approximately 9.25” high x 9.625” wide x 6.5” deep and is packaged in a 4-color box with a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity.
Lots of amazing toys and statues have debuted at the New York Toy Fair this year. Here are a few more.
Above are the action figures for Mia Wasikowska’s Alice and Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Below is a cool Minimates Delorean and Marty McFly in rad suit from Back to the Future. Below that is a great statue of Marvel’s Scarlet Witch.
Under special arrangement with Japanese manufacturer Kotobukiya, DC DIRECT once again brings the exquisite craftsmanship of KOTOBUKIYA to fans. A purr-fect companion statue to the previously released BATMAN and THE JOKER Vinyl Statues, this CATWOMAN VINYL STATUE is approximately 6″-7″ long and is packaged in a 4- color window box.
Pure speculation on my part, but could this new statue of Captain America by Kotobukiya possibly show the costume Steve Rogers will be sporting in Captain America: The First Avenger movie?
The reason being is that the helmet he is wearing is a bit different from the one in the comics – although it is a mix of the old school style and that of The Ultimate version of Cap. The main difference is that the wings are painted on instead of being weird little wing things that stuck out and always looked a little odd.
Mind you Daily Pop are saying the statue design is to celebrate the revival of the Avengers. It is based on the WWII Captain America design by Bryan Hitch from Captain America Reborn.
Directed by Joe Johnston (Rocketeer, Wolfman), Captain America: The First Avenger is due out in July 2011. Still no word on who will play him.
I still stick with my original thought that it would make a cool looking outfit for the film and it is going to be set mainly in World War II. Either way it is an excellent statue.
What do you think? Would it work as the movie outfit or should he have the big white sticky out wings?
The first and best Indy film gets a really well designed statue featuring classic Indy action.
If adventure has a name… it must be “Indiana Jones”! Standing almost 12-inches tall, the intricate sculpting of this unbelievable piece is difficult to comprehend and appreciate until you’ve actually viewed it in person. The sides portray the incredible stone sculptures of the Peruvian shrine, and the top shows the infamous podium from the 1st scene in Raiders. With bullwhip flailing and idol in hand, Indy flees the temple with the legendary gigantic boulder hot on his heels. Lesser men have failed in their quest for this object… look no further than the grisly torso on the right! The detail in this diorama is simply stunning, and this statue will certainly be the centerpiece of any Indiana Jones collection!
