Simply put, Hot Toys’ Superman Sixth Scale Figure is another jaw dropping movie-accurate collectible that’s apt to be irresistible to fans of DC Comics’ cinematic universe. In addition to being a spot-on portrayal of the iconic Son of Krypton as he appeared vis-à-vis the Bat of Gotham in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the collectible is another delightful addition to Hot Toys’ lauded Movie Masterpiece Series. The sixth scale Superman stands as the definitive representation of the Man of Steel that discerning comic book superhero fans absolutely need to add to their personal Fortresses of Solitude.
Out of the box, it’s evident that Hot Toys’ creative team went to great lengths to capture Superman’s onscreen appearance in Dawn of Justice with exhaustive detail. For starters, the figure boasts a faithful depiction of Superman as portrayed by Henry Cavill. From its depiction of the actor’s steely-eyed gaze to his brawny physique, the figure is both remarkably accurate and lifelike.
Complementing the figure’s build, Hot Toys’ Superman features a multipart costume consisting of an embossed fabric supersuit, red boots, and free flowing cloth cape. The nearly 12.5-inch tall figure boasts over thirty points of articulation. With the exception of the neck and wrists, most of the joints are hidden beneath the suit, which greatly enhances the figure’s overall look. Despite the form-fitting getup, the range of motion is quite impressive. Collectors should have no trouble displaying Superman in a range of dynamic poses without the risk of damage (though care when posing is always recommended). Additionally, the figure comes with eight interchangeable hands (four lefts and four rights), as well as a two-piece, adjustable figure stand fashioned with the Batman v Superman movie logo and a character nameplate. As an added bonus, the Sideshow Exclusive edition comes with a light-up blob of Kryptonite that glows green courtesy of an internal LED system.
Hot Toys’ Superman Sixth Scale Figure is a cornerstone addition to the company’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lineup (which also includes Wonder Woman as well as Knightmare, Armored and standard Batman variants), and must have for fans of the superhero paragon’s more recent cinematic representation. The screen-faithful collectible began shipping in June 2016 at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $209.99 USD.
