Sideshow Toys has released its limited edition Premium Format Black Canary figure that puts the martial arts master and motorcycle driving superhero into an imposing, realistic sculpt. Black Canary has seen a rise in popularity recently, as the character has been featured prominently in Arrow, the CW’s marquee superhero drama that spawned the channel’s Arrowverse television universe, for several years now. Black Canary, played by Katie Cassidy, is currently deceased in the show’s fiction, but a new incarnation is slated to take stage in the upcoming season six.
Created by Robert Kanigher and Carmine Infantino in 1947, Black Canary was originally introduced as a minor character in a Johnny Thunder feature. Her backstory was later fleshed out, but it wasn’t until the Crisis on Infinite Earths that Dinah Laurel Lance’s story as a spurned would-be cop-turned-vigilante was solidified.
The Black Canary sculpt is a limited edition run, with only 1500 figures going out into the world. The figure stands 21 inches tall and 9 inches wide. Black Canary stands on a replica asphalt base scattered with broken red bricks. The figure weighs 12 pounds and was designed by Ian MacDonald, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Kris Anka and Zac Roane.
Sideshow Toys Premium Format Black Canary figure and can be ordered from Sideshow Toys website for $449.99.
