DC Direct 13 Inch Sandman

Posted: Wednesday, July 23, 2008 by Shaun in Labels: ,

I suppose my brother, Eugene and fellow fans would be happy to see this figure immortalised in DC Direct's supposed sixth scale form...

...But I think DC f@#$ed up on his hair and gave Morpheus a mop top.

Official description as follows:


DC Direct's 1:6 scale deluxe collector figure line extends into story-specific characterizations with the addition of THE SANDMAN (ABSOLUTE EDITION). The Sandman is the first in a new line of 1:6 scale figures inspired by the Absolute Editions, and the first VERTIGO character to get the 1:6 scale figure treatment. Dressed in an intricate and authentically detailed costume, including a 4-panel tattered cloak, The Sandman comes with many character-specific accessories, including his ruby necklace, the Helm of Dreams, the Key to Hell, Goldie the Gargoyle, Matthew the Raven and a display stand. Packaged in a special slipcase to evoke the Absolute Editions that inspired it.

The Sandman (ABSOLUTE EDITION) 1:6 Scale Deluxe Collector Figure will be on sale March 18, 2009 and will retail for $125.

Discuss about this figure at the DC Direct Boards.

    $125?!? Has DC Direct gone mad!?1?

    The $90 price for the previous figures were already not commensurate with the quality especially when you compare them with other companies. Who does DC Direct think they are, Hot Toys?

    verily. They should receive a hammer of the gods on their heads for their pricing strategy.

    ooh that's gotta hurt. I'm just glad their giving other companies a chance to come up with interpretations of their core licences.
