A quick comment:   Back to Misc: Review M-III       Main Page

It was the result of Doomsday action which lead to Superman death that captivated my interested in the comic world.  I thought Doomsday was a cool character and with a menace appearance like that, he was the perfect villain in taking out Superman.  Anyhow I got the Doomsday at Jim Hanley on May Xxiii, Mmiii and it cost me $XVI.XCIX.

 

DOOMSDAY - THE DESTROYER

Back of Card description:

R-1 Doomsday in its Original condition:

2 - Back of the card

3 - These are all the contents that were included in the box/ package/ card: "1" Doomsday action figure, and "1" S stand base.

 

R-2 Doomsday's Action Figure:  

doomsdayfig1.jpg (48464 bytes)Well done on the figure especially on the sculpting.  The bone or stone that projects out of Doomsday body look so real in the toy.  I guess, you got to tip your hat to the person who did this sculpting.  The body, muscle, and then entire proportion are placed perfectly to one another.  And just like the comic, the Doomsday toy had all the characteristics expression that depicted him from being big, to that fiercest and mean look.  

 

And for the first time, I thought DCD did a great job on Doomsday crotch and leg joint thanks to his massive size unlike Superman, Bikzarro, and the Cyborg.  My only minor complaint about Doomsday is that his toy color is just a little bit bright.  His skin color and clothes should be a little bit dark gray or dark green on his pant and shoes.  

 

R-3 Doomsday's On The "S" Stand Base:

doomsdayfig2.jpg (41800 bytes)The first image emphasized what Doomsday can do with his articulation.  And unfortunately, he doesn't have much.  Next to that is Doomsday standing on the "S" base.  The "S" Shield is about 3 1/2 X 5 1/4 in inches and its primary colors are basically dark blue for the correct side or top part and black for the underneath side of the base.  Moreover, there is a little peg that stick out that connect onto Doomsday right foot for stability.

Action Figure Comic looks alike: [A] - Look very much like the comic. 

Special Notes: Here is "1" Special Notes that I think you should know:

1 - Because Doomsday had some small bones or stones look alike projecting out of his body, it's important not to drop him to prevent the piece from chipping off.

Overall Grade: [+A] - Doomsday action is definitely hot.  He looks very mean and fierce just like in the Death of Superman saga from the comic.
