REVIEW: The Shadow

Review Go Hero The Shadow 06

Background

First appearing on the July 31st 1930 Detective Story Hour radio show, The Shadow is a crime-fighting vigilante often cited as the inspiration for Batman. The character is known for sporting a girasol ring that helps focus his hypnotic abilities, a black slouch hat, a black cloak and a red scarf.

The character has also appeared in pulp magazines beginning in 1931, was voiced for a year by Orson Welles, and - oh yeah - there was a 1994 film starring Alec Baldwin as the title character. Needless to say, over 82 years of existence, the character's story has evolved.

But what's really surprising, is that with all of that history, this is the first time we're seeing a sixth-scale version of The Shadow. Go Hero and Executive Replicas have teamed up to bring Lamont Cranston aka The Shadow to fans and collectors.

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!"
