PICS: DC Collectibles New 52 Deathstroke mini-bust by Puck It
 
Pics of the new DC Collectibles New 52 Deathstroke bust. Very cool...very happy with this piece. Great detail, excellent pose, very clean paint job...not to mention it's Deathstroke; what more could you ask for? Displays well with Bowen busts. Doesn't show up very well in the pics, but the wear/damage on the armor is a nice touch. If you're on the fence about this one, take the leap. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for the terrific pics!

I think this is DC's best mini bust. I'm not a fan of that armor from the comics, but that bust looks great. Thinking of picking one up now. Hey Puck, you should check out the Deadshot bust that they have coming up. Looks pretty sweet IMO.

Fastball Special February 13th, 2015 10:06:00 PM

Nice! DC is killing it with their mini bust line. Wish they would make their statues on the same level.

Puck It February 14th, 2015 01:13:08 AM

No prob Tarasadies, had fun taking them.

I'm with you, I'd rather it be the OG Deathstroke, but this will more than do. Yeah, I saw that. Looks like another winner to me. Should go nicely with this guy. Yeah man, I'd grab one...great deal at retail IMO.

Yeah, they do have some nice ones. This is the only one I have so far, but I've been eyeing the Green Arrow and a couple others. Then they've got Deadshot coming up...might have a little collection of these before long.

I picked it up last year, anything Deathstroke that's halfway decent and I'll probably get it.

Puck It March 11th, 2017 10:09:12 PM

This one's commanding a pretty good price now. Thought it would...great piece. Kind of regret selling mine...if for no other reason than to take better pictures.

Blindzider March 11th, 2017 10:41:40 PM

Agreed! Very nice bust (although I too prefer the classic look). Thanks for sharing.

I'm really liking many of these "New 52" busts. My only complaint is that I think the base design could have been a little better thought out. Not really a fan of the "ring" types of bases.
Other than that though, the sculpts themselves are a step above what we've come to expect from DC Collectables and the paint apps are a huge improvement over some of the products we've seen before (I'm looking at YOU Blackest Night busts. 8-|)
It's strange how fast they've been rising in price with so large an edition size. While easily had for $50 on release, some of the earlier releases are already flirting with $200 on the aftermarket. I'm thinking collectors looking to complete a Justice League collection with the original releases of the "trinity" are having a more than expected difficult time of it.
I have the Green Lantern and Aquaman. I am certainly NOT the biggest Aquaman fan, but the bust is just so well done for the price I couldn't imagine any reason NOT to add it to my collection. That's one hell of a lot of bust for a measly $50. :)

Puck It March 12th, 2017 09:27:23 PM

Yeah, the bases can be a little simple. I'm willing to overlook that with the great sculpts and paint, though. Yeah, some of these are up there now...just quality pieces and people are willing to pay for it. I'm not into the character, but that Aquaman is definitely one of the cooler busts imo. Green Arrow is another one. I haven't been collecting these, but I might pick up the Grifter just to have one, if I can find it for a decent price. Great line.

TrueFaith March 13th, 2017 06:10:53 AM

I really like the Grifter, unfortunately he's one of the ones in the $200 range already on eBay (!!) $-)

Puck It March 13th, 2017 09:58:23 PM

Yeah...unfortunately. I'm down to pay up for a bust, but I'd have to REALLY like it or REALLY need it for a display to fork out that much.

that is a fantastic looking bust of Aquaman. I do have the DC Icons statue of him and that is also a great looking piece.

I have owned a number of DC busts over the years (the only one that I own now is Phantom Lady) and it seems that with the bases of the DC busts that they either nail it down completely or they totally miss the mark.
