DC Direct 13 Inch Sandman

I enjoyed the Sandman's tales, especially when he went to hell to do battle. DC Direct's 13 inch rendition is packed with relevant accessories, and makes a very nice collectible item indeed.

Coming in a number 9 in this year's list, Morpheus of the Endless is one really cool figure if you're a big fan of (or sorta like) Neil Gaiman's masterpiece series.

    Very cool accessories, Shaun. I love that crow and the ruby and the super cool cape-coat. Wow. The texture and the shape of the Sandman's hair is interesting, too.

    Hi Shaun, I started my Top Ten 2009 list today. Who else is in it?
    Can you post a link list to the other top ten list blogger? So we can put that list on our blogs.

    @Diana: The accessories really round up the set real nice. I didn't want to get the fig cos of the hair initially, as I prefer the wiry hair look.

    @Mick; Thanks for the alert, Mick. A bit tricky to compile the list of participants as some of us haven't started yet, but the last few comments in this post gives a good indication of who intends to take part. http://testicular-fortitude.blogspot.com/2008/11/lets-all-do-2008-top-10-fave-toys-list.html#comments
