Inspired by their original 1960s designs (from the web-winged Spider-Man to a canary yellow Daredevil), the statuettes are painted to create a "distressed" look, with visibile seams and a rougher surface. Each hand-numbered statuette comes in a full-color, litho-printed tin box, complete with a small character booklet and pin-back button.
“I’ve collected Marvel comics since I was a kid,” Dark Horse president Mike Richardson recalled, “so I am really excited by this opportunity to add these terrific characters to our classic Syroco line. From the beginning, the goal of this program was to give a very unique treatment to the greatest characters in comics, and now we have the good fortune to work with the fine folks at Marvel on some of my absolute favorites.”
The first in the series, the original Amazing Spider-Man statuette will be available in September, with only 2,000 units being produced. Plans for future statuettes include the Fantastic Four, and the original Avengers.
