For the The Justice League statue line there is six total statues. There is Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Cyborg, The Flash and Aquaman. Each statue looks like the actors that played them in the movie. The costumes are a direct representations from the ones you saw in the film. The attention to detail is remarkable. As a collector I have different statues in my collection, but I haven’t seen the quality of craftsmanship for the sticker price of $150.00. Other statues from different companies are more expensive, but really don’t compare to the quality in these statues.

If you have a comic book fan on your holiday list these Justice League statues will make them very happy to find these statues under the tree.

Each statue measures 12-inches tall and comes with an included base. The Edition Size for each statue is 5000. For more on The Justice League statues and other items go to dccollectibles.com.
