Beginning in September 2011, Dark Horse will begin introducing classic Marvel characters to their Syroco line. The statues portray these characters just as they originally appeared: Spider-Man, for instance, is presented with his early "web wing" costume, and Daredevil is in his yellow-and-red uniform. Spider-Man, limited to 2000 numbered statuettes, will be the first in the Classic Marvel Characters series. The Avengers will also see Syroco releases.
Each hand-numbered statuette will come packaged in a custom-tooled, full-color, litho-printed tin box. Also included is a small booklet about each character and a vintage-style pin-back button of the character.
Dark Horse's Syroco statuettes are inspired by figurines developed in the 1930s. Now highly prized by collectors, they were often used as advertising premiums featuring famous comic-strip characters. Now known as Syroco figurines, these statuettes are named after both the company that originally produced them and the woodlike resin material from which they were made at the time. Measuring between four and five inches, these statuettes have been sculpted in the original style, described by sculptor Craig Yoe as "primitive but charming."
