Doomsday Gets The Ultimate Statue From Prime 1 Studio
Doomsday gets a bad rap. As a life-long Superman fan, I have always appreciated the being who killed Superman. Since that fateful year of 1993, every time the big lug makes an appearance, I get excited. Personally, I feel like he is DC's Juggernaut. He never stops coming, and that will never not be interesting. Well, except the whole Mr. Oz thing — I haven't been enjoying that very much. But I digress.
Prime 1 Studio Doomsday Statue
Prime 1 Studio is proud to present MMDC-28: Doomsday from Superman comics series. The nameless being later to be called Doomsday was artificially created in the distant past on Krypton, long before the humanoid Kryptonian race had gained dominance over the planet. During this time period, Krypton was a violent, hellish world where only the absolute strongest of creatures could survive. Doomsday is a rampaging, seemingly mindless, murdering monster who killed Superman. He is the only one in main comics continuity to ever kill Superman and he did so simply by beating the man of steel to death.
– Size approximately 38 inches [(H)97cm (W)85cm (D)74cm]
– One (1) alternate Exclusive portrait (In Exclusive version only)
This thing is HUGE. The detail on Doomsday himself is spectacular. I do sometimes wish they would do more with him in his full green suit, but I understand. The spikes and such are awesome to sculpt and are much more interesting visually. At 38 inches tall, this thing is massive. The limited edition of 500 comes with an alternate portrait. The regular-edition size is only 800. Gotta love the Supes flag waving in the wind on the base, as well. Such an iconic image.
At $1649 for the regular edition and $1699 for the limited version, not many of us are going to be picking this one up. I would love to, though! Check out more of their offerings here while you wait for this to hit preorder.
