If you talk about Superman, people could just choose The Superman Returns for the topic. No kidding because Brandon Routh as Clark Kent had done a perfect job for reviving the Superman into a new era. This movie was better than old Superman Series. I think most of you could agree with me too. But Superman Fans never forgot about the legendary Movies stars by Christopher Reeve. For those people, classic is the best of the best. Because of that, 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 detailed light-up figure stage imitating the Fortress of Solitude. The sculpt of this Superman is freaking me out, they surely done a great job for making this figure looked like the real one.
Hot Toys Limited will be donating a portion of this collectible figure's sales to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The Reeve Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. Hot Toy's hopes to contribute to the foundation and the injured through the enjoyment of collectible figures.
