Hot Toys Christopher Reeve as SUPERMAN
You'll believe a man can fly...
Our affiliate site OneSixthWarriors.com has posted a review on Hot Toys' anticipated Christopher Reeve as Superman 12-inch action figure. Be sure to check out the impressive photos of this figure below and watch as this multi-part review is updated throughout the week.
Amid high anticipation, Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are proud to present the Superman 12-inch Figure from the 1978 classic superhero film Superman. The movie-accurate Superman collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Christopher Reeve as The Man of Steel, highlighting the authentic head sculpt, movie-accurate costume and figure stage imitating the Fortress of Solitude.
This set represents Christopher Reeve in the 1978 movie Superman.
It's been said repeatedly, and it's a point I'd like to underscore again here, as it's a testament to the monumental talent Hot Toys has been able to secure in the creation of their 1:6 figures... in that we unfailingly expect perfection from them. I mean Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum level of quality and likeness. They've set the bar high, and our expectations have risen along with it, sometimes to a point where nothing less than absolute perfection will make us happy. High expectations notwithstanding, I dare to say Hot Toys successfully delivers in the likeness department the majority of the time. In the case of this set, their likeness of Christopher Reeve as Superman is no different, down to the trademark Superman hair curl.
Film Description originally posted by Gregory A. Sheets @ IMDB
Unable to convince the ruling council of Krypton that their world will destroy itself soon, scientist Jor-El takes drastic measures to preserve the Kryptonian race: He sends his infant son Kal-El to Earth. There, gaining great powers under Earth's yellow sun, he will become a champion of truth and justice. Raised by the Kents, an elderly farm couple, Clark Kent learns that his abilities must be used for good. The adult Clark travels to Metropolis, where he becomes a mild-mannered reporter for the Daily Planet...and a caped wonder whose amazing feats stun the city: Superman! When the evil Lex Luthor plans to take over the world, Superman is the only one who can stop him.
