Cover Sculpture: Giant-Size X-Men #1

21Apr10

This is a bit different. I saw this online a couple of years ago but only picked it up recently. (Giant-Size X-Men #1 was Colossus’ first appearance) This type of 3D aspect works really well with this particular cover but up close it shows its lack of quality- though it was a fairly inexpensive addition. My main gripe however is Colossus’ head is looking down too much – in the original cover he was looking up a little more straight ahead:

Anyway it is still pretty cool and looks well in the display case.

Made by Code 3 Collectibles in 2006. It says on the  box it is a “Limited Edition Collectible” but it doesnt appear to be individually numbered – so I have no idea for the size of the production run. I had a quick look on the Code 3 website but there is no easily available info on this or its partner sculpture Amazing Fantasy #15.
