Since 2000 Dark Horse Comics released a series of statues sculpted by Yoe! Studio in their Classic Comic Character series.

The 47 statues in this series are made of resin or polystone, stands 2.5" to 6” tall, are fully painted, and ready to display. Each character is depicted in the clothes/costume/outfit that they wore in their respective comic strips. Each stands on a small tan circular base on which is printed the name of the character.

The Classic Comic Character series figurines were inspired by the "syroco" statues of the 1940s. Each statue is limited and numbered, and comes packaged in a litho-printed full-color tin box with a certificate of authenticity (sticker on bottom of tin), a booklet (about the character and the artist-creator), and a vintage-style pin-back button of the character. The number is hand written on the bottom of the statue and on a sticker (called a certificate) which is affixed to the bottom of the tin. The presentation of the figure is in the style of the 1940’s Syroco figure toys, resembling a distressed 1940’s wood/plastic/composite syroco toy. There is much less detail than usually seen on current statues/figurines, and the statute includes faux plastic mold seams and similar details. The original retail price of each figurine (with pin, booklet and tin) was $49.95.
