With a whole slew of fans following his appearance across and his Rebirth solo series, as well as an upcoming appearance in the DC Cinematic Universe, Deathstroke is becoming an essential character on the DC Comics slate. And now, he has a new figure from Sideshow Collectibles to celebrate.
The premium collectible company has released a first look at the statue, which is modeled after Slade Wilson's iconic battle suit from the comics. This 19-inch-tall statue captures the character wielding his usual pair of blades, one of which can be switched out for a power staff.
The press release from Sideshow is as follows:
The mercenary known as “Deathstroke the Terminator” is one of the most dangerous assassins in the DC Universe. With a decidedly deadly skillset (which includes extreme proficiency with almost any weapon) Deathstroke has hunted Batman, the Teen Titans, the Justice League and more!
War veteran and martial arts expert Slade Wilson was injected with a top secret serum by the military in an attempt to create a super soldier capable of dispatching even meta-human prey. Though these futuristic scientific treatments imbued him with heightened strength, speed, and agility as well as preternaturally fast healing, Slade eventually became embittered and jaded. Personal grief and family trauma took their toll, and he abandoned his covert military career and turned to a life of crime, and using these newfound powers to hunt super-powered individuals – for the right price!
This isn't the first time that Sideshow has made a Deathstroke statue. An older model based off of his appearance in Batman: Arkham Origins is currently available to purchase.
If you want to own this Deathstroke for yourself, he is currently available for pre-order to be shipped between February and April of 2018, and will cost you $524.99.
