I recently picked up this wonderful action figure of Hawkman by DC Direct based on his appearance in the Superman/Batman Public Enemies series.
I been wanting this one for a while now after having watched the animated movie of the same name which was based off a set of comic books a year or so back.
I have always been a fan of Hawkman and I would say he is my second favorite comic book character after Marvel’s The Thing so being able to finally adding this figure to my collection is just great.
It really has some serious size and heft and on that alone I got my money’s worth and to give you a ideal how big this really is here it is standing next to my Marvel Select The Thing action figure….
Now “Hawks” here is not just a winner on size and weight alone he really has some nice details to him between the scaring and veins on his body to his painted on chest hair they really did a awesome job with all of this.
Even the included Mace has some nice details to it as well with cracks in it from all the battles it has been put through….
One of the coolest bits of this figure is the “Claw of Horus” which Hawkman uses in the animated movie(and comic book as well am guessing) to incapacitate Superman…..
Like with everything else with this figure it’s nicely detailed and I love the look and colors of it and it easily snaps on or off Hawkman’s fist so you can display him with out it if you so choose.
If there is one thing I have to gripe about with this figure would be it’s display base which is utterly useless because of how small in size it is. They should of made it slightly larger to better match up to the scale and weight it needs to support but I suppose these are the standard ones used in all the action figures from this line and it was a matter of cost savings to just use the same one for all of them.
But beyond my Display Base gripe I think this action figure of Hawkman is just excellent with everything from all the details in it’s sculpt and weapons to its ball-joint wings equals a winner for me and considering how cheap I was able to pick this up for at my local Toy Reseller am very happy.
