Magazine article: Lee's Action Figure News April 1995

Brief article from Lee's Action Figure News April 1995 - not about the Kenner figures sadly - covering the statues from Applause. I've seen a few of these on eBay - and own some of the mugs - but the paint work is so sloppy I'm not in any rush to pick most of these up.

Just to note those aren't the ceramic mugs at the end, they are incorrectly captioned. They are actually the cheaper plastic mugs. That Batman one looks horrific.

Their most recent credit was the 2014 Paul WS Anderson film Pompeii.
