Love the Golden Age Sandman and i really dig this figure.
Iv been a fan of the sandman for a long time, I do very much like the Vertigo version of him in a traditional gas mask but thus one is to brightly colored to not like.
He almost looks like he could be part of playmates Dick Tracey line.
I always thought so! Its the bright zoot suit that screams Dick Tracey.
If Star-Lord and the Green Hornet had a son, it's gonna look like the one on that first photo.
When this figure came out I was so disappointed - I though he just looked way too 'cartoony.' and it didn't fit the aesthetic of the other DC Direct offerings.Now I wish I had picked him up as his cartoony nature adds some of it's own charm.
When these Sandmen came out I hadn't really formed an opinion about DC Direct yet. I didnt really like the first wave of figures that were all Mad magazine characters but the wave 2 that had the 2 sandman, 2 Swampthings, and 2 wonder woman was really cool. All the figures in that wave were different from each other stylistically but the regular version of Sandman is a lot less animated looking.
