Eaglemoss International makes a line called The Classic Marvel Figurine Collection. They're hand-painted statues of your favorite Marvel characters that come bagged with a magazine that covers the history of that particular character.
His sculpt is really detailed with all sorts of musculature, textured skin, and individual spines that stick out of his head. This is the monsterous form of Blackheart and the pose looks great, him walking forward towards his next victim. The face (or lack of) looks creepy with two large eyes and a covered, stretched mouth. The claws could have been a bit pointier like his spines but overall he looks great. Speaking of the spines, watch out, they bend really easy.
Obviously there's no articulation here since Blackheart is a lead miniature and is meant for display. The full-color magazine included is equally awesome, 15 pages of Blackheart's character history complete all of his appearances, characters fought, and tons of information. The way they're bagged together tho means the comic is usually dented/bent over a little where the box has been pressing up against it during shipment.
So what's the verdict? At around $14 you get a hand painted, imported from England, individually numbered (runs of 10,000 I think?) figurine with a character specific magazine. That's really good when you think about what normal collectibles or mini-statues go for. Blackheart is really well sculpted and painted but you should see the other figures! Some like Man Thing are downright amazing and Galactus is oversized and weighs a ton. Our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has him in stock along with many others. Be aware that some of the past figures are hard to come buy and you'll end up having to use Amazon or Ebay to locate them. Also remember these are made of lead, not plastic, and you'll want to be careful handling them.
