REVIEW: Doc Savage – Double Danger Deluxe Version

Doc-Savage-14

‘The Man of Bronze’ - Doc Savage was created by publisher Henry W. Ralston and editor John L. Nanovic at Street and Smith Publications, with additional works by Lester Dent. Doc’s popularity transcended the pulps moving into radio, comic books, and a feature film. Doc has been interpreted by some of the greatest artists. This beloved adventurer is considered to be the model for the ‘super hero’ with his strength, intelligence, speed, physique, and wealth – he even has a ‘Fortress of Solitude’. The name Doc Savage is synonymous with courage, danger, and adventure - remaining a heroic pop-culture icon to this day.

The Doc Savage 1/6th scale collectible figure comes from Go Hero and Executive Replicas. This is one of several collaborations that the two companies have worked on in the past or are working on into the future. The Doc Savage figure is available in two different versions: the Silver Age version and the Go Hero Exclusive Double Danger Deluxe version. For this review, I’ll be looking at the Double Danger Deluxe (DDD).

Not knowing much about Doc Savage, I had to do some research. I wasn’t surprised to find out that one of the professions of this fictional character was that of a doctor. But I was a little surprised that he wasn’t at all related to ‘The Macho Man’... Fans of the character will be delighted to know that this is the first time the good Doc has been made available as a 1/6th scale figure.

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!"
