Since his first appearance in the pages of the Fantastic Four in 1962, Doctor Doom
has remained one of the most recognizable and archetypal comic book super villains ever created. Sideshow Collectibles is pleased to announce the nefarious Doctor Doom as the inaugural character in the Marvel Legendary Scale Bust series. Doom has been captured in approximately 1:2 scale, swathed in his iconic green cloak. Doom's mask is removable, so that you may behold his fully scarred and ruined visage. The bust also features a removable nose, so that you may choose just how hideous Doom actually appears. The entire bust is cast in high-quality polystone, hand finished and hand painted to exacting standards. Don't miss this chance to begin your Marvel Legendary Scale Bust collection, and add Doom to your display!
Victor von Doom was once a friend and colleague of Reed Richards, until a flawed experiment left him minimally scarred and intensely jealous of Richards, whom he believed had sabotaged the experiment in order to humiliate him. Victor traveled the world seeking a cure for his scarring, which although minor, served as a constant reminder of the failure that he refused to consciously admit. Unable to heal the scars, von Doom crafted a suit of body armor to conceal his disfigurement. In his anxiety to don the new suit, von Doom placed the red-hot mask on his face, leaving him permanently disfigured. Victor von Doom renamed himself 'Doctor Doom,' and his desire for revenge against Richards was all-consuming. Doom returned to his homeland, Latveria, where he overthrew the standing government and established a peaceful and powerful dictatorship, which he termed an 'enforced monarchy.' With his new power base, Doctor Doom began a crusade of revenge, not only against Richards, but against the world that had humiliated Doom and persecuted his people.
