Sandman (William Baker a.k.a. Flint Marko) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. A shapeshifter endowed through an accident with the ability to turn himself into sand, he began as a villain and later became an ally of Spider-Man. The character has been adapted into various other media incarnations of Spider-Man, including animated cartoons and the 2007 film Spider-Man 3, in which he is portrayed by Thomas Haden Church.
The Sandman first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (Sept. 1963), created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko as an adversary of Spider-Man. The character returned in The Amazing Spider-Man #18 and #19, and was soon depicted in other comics, such as battling Hulk and the Fantastic Four.
XM Studios is excited to present their next Marvel Premium Collectibles series statue, Sandman! The manipulator of Sand and a member of the Sinister Six is immortalized in amazingly detailed 1:4 scale cold-cast porcelain. Each painstakingly handcrafted statue stands at approximately 75 cm tall and every piece individually hand-painted with the highest possible quality finish. With the ability to transform and manipulate sand, the statue form allows various display options from human to Sand form. The two large Sand arms demonstrate just 2 of the various destructive weaponry Sandman has at his disposal. The Sandman possesses superhuman strength several times more than Spider-Man's, on par with the Thing's and is an important member of the Sinister Six.
