See the good and evil sides of Superman with Wave 2 of MEDICOM TOY’s DC Sofubi figures. Available now for pre-order through PREVIEWS February catalog, Superman fans can only get these exclusive items from their local comic shop when they hit shelves in July 2014.
The DC Heroes Sofubi Superman Figure (Item Code: FEB142309, SRP: $79.99)
is a PREVIEWS Exclusive item standing at 9 ľ in. tall, and features the iconic hero in all his gusto and glory. The evil clone of Superman is the DC Heroes Sofubi Bizarro Figure (Item Code: FEB142310, SRP: $79.99)
. The figure features blue Bizzaro, with an angry look that truly shows the opposite side to heroic Superman. This hero and villain pair have been upgraded with a new material and paint design, making them more like works of art and a great find for collectors.
Created in collaboration between Japanese sofubi house Bear Model and acclaimed Japanese toymaker MEDICOM TOY, Superman & Bizarro follow the October solicitation of Batman (Item Code: OCT132096) and the Joker (Item Code:OCT132097). “I always wanted to find that killer crossover sofubi item for Western audiences,” explained Diamond Brand Manager Jesse Morgan. “When the opportunity to work with MEDICOM & Bear Model on a DC Sofubi project came up in 2013, we all jumped at it. We got our samples and just shot a great video for Wave 1 featuring the characters in their unique final packaging. We are also really excited to show off our first oversized DC sofubi piece at Toy Fair in February, where we will also talk about Wave 3 featuring Swamp Thing.”
The sofubi figures are only available in North America through PREVIEWS and available for purchase in comic book shops and specialty retailers. Sofubi figures are unique, made from a softer vinyl which allows more detail to come through the design.
