DC Super Hero Collection - Best of Figurines - SHAZAM! - #27 (2017)


After the success of their line of heroes in the DC Comics Super Hero Collection, Eaglemoss started a new line, DC Super Hero Collection - Best of Figurines, to re-issue the most popular characters from the first series in metallic resin rather than being cast in lead as they had done in the first series.

While the figures were slightly larger in height (with a decreased weight), other aspects of each release had been scaled down and refitted. One of the problems with the first release, as well as many of Eaglemoss's other lines was the packaging. Eaglemoss shipped an 8.5x11 magazine along with a figure in a box both in a clear, sealed plastic bag. Because of this, many of the magazines were damaged in transit as well as the figurines.

Eaglemoss rectified this by issuing these new figures in a smaller, four-color window box. Also, by switching to a figurine composition of metallic resign and eliminating lead, Eaglemoss improved the safety of the figurines.

Magazine

Pages: 16
Format: four color with glossy cardboard cover.
Width: 5.75"
Height: 7.10" 

Because the figurine was a re-issue of a previous figurine, Eaglemoss also chose to reissue the magazine content as well. The cover was reset with a new logo and the SHAZAM! logo was repositioned.


Due to the new packaging size, the magazine size also had to be reduced from 8.6" x 10.8" to 5.75" x 7.10". This caused the page artwork and text that were reprinted from the larger magazine to be slightly clipped. 

Content

The Character - With One Magic Word...
The Classics - Shazam's Classic Storylines
The New 52 - The God of Gods (new content)

From the previous magazine, the following content was dropped: The Players, Iconography, and Original Thinking were dropped.
