Before the Internet and cell phones, there was Superman. Anyone who’s seen the 1978 film couldn’t possibly forget Christopher Reeve’s iconic performance as the flying superhero himself.
Take a look at this 18-inch 1/4-scale 1978 Superman figure from NECA, a true necessity for the quintessential and devoted Superman collector. Featuring the likeness of the actor as authorized by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and Warner Bros., this offering is truly a treat.
Up up and away *Kid Cudi voice*
This is a figure many, many people have been waiting for. Christopher Reeve’s turn as SUPERMAN has now been further immortalised as a brilliant 12-inch figure from Sideshow. The head sculpt bears an incredible resemblance to the late, great actor and the costume detailing is flawless, looking all the better against a Fortress of Solitude action figure stage.
If that weren’t enough, though, check this out:
