If you are a collector of action figures or statues there are some that you just have to have. If you like Marvel Comics then an action figure does not get as cool as Venom. The Venom life-size bust is incredibly detailed putting you face to face with one of Marvel’s scariest villains.

But this life-size bust looks as real as it gets. Every wrinkle on Venom’s face has been carefully designed to fit perfectly. The teeth look razor-sharp as they should and his expression is one that if you did not know any better could give you nightmares. The Venom life-size bust is one that a comic book fans collection can’t be without.
