Sideshow Collectibles Killer Croc Premium Format Figure is more impressive than film Croc


“I threw a rock at him!”

Killer Croc might not be the brightest villain to ever grace the pages of DC Comics, but he is one of the toughest and most brutal. Constantly stepping up against Batman, and occasionally other super-villains, Killer Croc is as formidable an opponent as he is a statue.

Sideshow’s Killer Croc Premium Format™ Figure captures the physicality and anger that DC collectors expect from this misshapen villain. Poised to stomp through the sewers, Croc’s feet are kicking up a splash as a rat scurries around him. Clad in weathered fabric pants and rope belt, one gets an idea that his is a man or beast that has been living rough on the edge.

Depicted as having a rare genetic condition that gives him a crocodilian appearance, sideshow wrestler Waylon Jones develops into a dangerous and animalistic criminal. The extent of his resemblance to a crocodile varies between merely a large man with hardened skin, and essentially an anthropomorphic crocodile. The character is often portrayed as having cannibalistic tendencies. The character has been adapted into various other media featuring Batman, including animated TV series and film, video games and novels. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje portrayed Killer Croc in the 2016 live-action feature film Suicide Squad.

The Sideshow exclusive version of the Killer Croc Premium Format™ Figure features a swap-out portrait that is far more crocodilian in appearance - see pics below. Product Size: 18.5" H (469.9mm) x 13.5" W (342.9mm) x 19.5" L (495.3mm)

DC has Killer Croc and Marvel has The Lizard. For almost every superhero or villain in the comic books, there is an identical version in the rival company. The Lizard was portrayed by Rhys Ifans in the 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man and he was bigger and meaner than Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's Killer Croc could ever be.
