DC Direct 13 Inch Shazam

Brief thoughts
One of the better DCD 13" figs to date, the material used for the costume seems to be an improvement over previous figures, i.e., more durable. The weight of the cape makes the clasp slip backwards, resulting in a choking superhero, which really irks me. Wish the boots were the same shade of gold as the tassles, insignia and cape lining. Very nice facesculpt, thank you DC Direct for changing it for the fans.

Many thanks to G&B Comics for bringing this in.

    Awesome! Great pics Shaun :) Poor Cap is gonna get rope burn around his neck! Can't wait for mine to arrive. Only three weeks until Superman V2 shows up!

  1. thanks jase, still haven't managed to come up with a way to prevent the rope burn. looks really silly now with him choking on his cape. poster putty perhaps? Supes V2? Sign me up for two!

  1. Jason says:

    How about a little piece of velcro attached to his back and underside of his cape? Just a small piece would work.

    Yeah, I call him Superman "V2" instead of Superman "Classic" because the V2 looks more modern than the first release does. IMO anyway. :)

  1. thanks for the idea, Jase, appreciate it. Now I'll need to hunt down velcro strips. No idea where to get them locally yet though. Arrgh, can't stand the current pix of him getting choked.

  1. Jason says:

    Sure thing! There are lots of places to buy velcro around here. Not sure what stores you have there. Has Walmart invaded your country yet? LOL

    I've been itchin' to see what your response to this figure would be since I stumbled upon your blog. I agree that the boots should be the same the gold as the wristbands, belt, etc.; and that the choke hold cape is a drag. I'm on the fence about whether try nay modifications to correct the problem. Your pictures of Cap & Superman Returns "fighting" are fun! Keep up the great blog.

  1. Nope, no walmart here, which is a waste considering the exclusives which we missed out on when I was still collecting Star Wars and Marvel stuff.

    Hey mikey, thanks for dropping by and the encouraging comments, much appreciated, will keep this blog running as and when I get new stuff in. :)
