In the run up to San Diego Comic-Con International, Sideshow Toys has been hosting an “Online Comic-Con” for the entire month, with at least one new reveal each day. Some of the products they’ve show were ones we’ve known about before, but today they teased that a new 1/6 scale (12 inches, usually) DC Comics collectible would be revealed. And they showed us this…
First Crystal Pepsi makes a comeback, and now this–my ’90s feels are all back in force. That Wolverine-ish hairdo and sideburns, the PMRC warning label button, the excessive line-work on his face, the then-trending cigar enthusiasm…all of it makes me want to find and crank up my Jesus Jones and EMF albums, because damn it, I am alive and I waited for this. It’s unbelievable.
No further information is available on the Lobo figure at the moment, but you can be bet he’ll be shown in full at SDCC. With Deadpool and Wolverine having finally become icons of the big screen as well as the page, the last Czarnian is overdue for his closeup, Dawg. Maybe in one of the Justice League sequels he can be an appropriately threatening foe for Superman, who won’t be able to break this bastich’s neck so easily.
How do you feel about a footlong Lobo? Is the bounty hunter a man out of time, toy-wise, or is now the perfect moment to resurrect his ill-tempered patootie? How much would you pay for an in-scale Space Hog? Take your best shot in comments below.
