Awesome Toy Picks: Aardman SUPERMAN Figure

A cool collectible you'll want to add to your personal collection.

Each week we take a close look at a comic book collectible. That means taking it out of the package. With New York Comic Con having just passed, there was no way I could pass up picking up the "con exclusive" Aardman Superman figure when I was picking up a copy of the con exclusive BATMAN #24.

If you've watched DC Nation on Saturday mornings on Cartoon Network, you've probably seen the shorts by the creators of Wallace and Gromit featuring some DC characters. It's hard to believe it's been a year since I did the feature on the con exclusive Aardman BATMAN figure. The packaging is similar to the other DC Collectibles figures which makes it a little funny.

While this may be an "action" figure, of course there isn't a whole lot of action to it. But that's not why you'd be buying this. It may not be for everyone but it does stand apart from the numerous existing Superman figures out there.

It might be hard to believe why DC Collectibles would make this an exclusive figure when there are other ones available. You can purchase Batman and Robin separately. There is also a five-pack set including Batman, Robin, Joker, Catwoman and, yes, Superman at the DC Collectibles website. What makes this figure exclusive is he comes with a 'box' of cookies and one he can hold in his hand.

The figure cost $25 at the con. He stands at 6 1/2" tall. There are some available on eBay, ranging between $30-$55. Unless you really want that cookie, you'd be better off getting the box set with each figure running you $15 each.

You can see how this figure stand next to the other one.

World's Finest?

If you're a fan of Superman or Wallace and Gromit, you'll want to get your hands on this figure. It may not have many options in terms of posing but it is a figure that will stand out when on display.

That's it for this week. Let us know what you think of this selection below. We'll have another selection next time.

@nappystr8: I find it humorous when people don't like them and state they're dumb rather than they *think* they're dumb. All I know is there was quite a few people buying these.
