The Four Horsemen Speak Out About The New DCUC Darkseid Figure

DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2010.01.21
The Four Horsemen, the sculptors for Mattel's DC Universe Classics line has posted the following message on Mattel's Facebook page in regards to scale issues with the new "Collect-to-Connect" Darkseid figure.

"Hi everybody, we've seen a lot of arguing and confusion surrounding the scale and size of the recently released Darkseid C&C figure. We thought that it might be helpful if we gave you guys some insight into where we came up with the final height of the figure. Darkseid's classic height has always been listed at 7'6". (Of course the modern version is listed as much bigger, but most fans have been vocal about getting the classic proportions.) The average DCUC figure is not 6", but actually 6 and 3/8 inches tall. Proportionally the perfect height for a Darkseid figure representing 7'6" is exactly 8". We decided to use official stats since he has been drawn so many different ways over the years. (Even Jack Kirby's depictions vary drastically from panel to panel!) On a further note the Super Powers version is 5.5" versus a standard hero height of 4.5". Proportionately scaled, our figure is actually a little smaller than he should be to match the Super Powers size difference. Of course these guys are comic book characters, so what would any discussion be without a little debate, but we thought you might like a little insight into how we came up with our version."

Darkseid is part of Mattel's 12th wave of DCUC line which includes the following figures.

- Spectre
- Eclipso
- Dr Mid-Nite
- Iron
- Copperhead
- Mary Marvel
- Dessad
