A very weird thing happened today...DCSH 12-inch Superman

Green Lantern

Recommended Posts

This morning, I was driving to my LCS (local comic shop) when I began thinking about how I missed out on that wonderful 12-inch Batman Mattel made years ago, the one that was essentially a giant version of Zipline Batman. I then wondered if Mattel was ever going to do the same for Superman, and vowed that if this indeed happened, I would buy it.


I was walking through the action figure aisle at the local TRU while my wife and daughter were in the baby section. The Spidey Origins and JLU stuff caught my eye, as well as the House of El Two Pack and the Jor-El Hologram figure. I was about to leave the aisle to meet my wife with a black costume Spidey in tow when I saw it: an unfamiliar box with the \S/ on it. I picked it up and audibly said: "O my God." Thankfully, no one was around. It was a twelve-inch Superman action figure, virtually the same figure from DCSH Series 2.


I check TNI, Michael Crawford's Review of the Week, and various other boards and sites about action figures two or three times a day. I had ZERO idea this figure was even being planned, much yet already made. And there he was. Despite the steep price of thirty greenbacks, I bought the figure.


My digital camera is on the fritz, so in lieu of pics, I'll just give you a mental image. Imagine the first DCSH Superman action figure from Series 2, the one that's so damned fantastic, blown up to twelve inches in height with extra detail like fabric wrinkles. Then remove some of the articulation and you'll have this figure. It's very much like what Mattel did with the Batman figure from years back.


Anyway, I wanted to share this with some fellow toy fans. Did anyone know about this or have you seen these out there?

these have been out awhile, they did supes and bats, Mike did in fact review it...or at least the batman http://mwctoys.com/REVIEW_101806a.htm . they're good figures but the price tag is way too high IMO. still i hope they continue and do the non superman and batman characters, i would gladly pay 30 bucks for a 12 inch DCSH Bizarro, Azrael or Darksied
