“People are afraid of what they don’t understand,” uttered Jonathan Kent in 2013’s Superman: Man of Steel. And in a world encompassing complex Middle Eastern political conflicts and cryptic adolescent phrases like “on fleek” all at once, one could say that there is plenty to fear. But let’s charge ahead here, toy-lovers, and knock that big, scary monster straight in the kisser!
Notable DC Comics persona Gary Frank designed this exclusive, fearless creation depicting the caped hero from Man of Steel, the inimitable Superman as sculpted by Tony Cipriano and Josh Sutton. He is seven inches tall, brand-new and released in a limited series of 5,200, so get him while he’s hot, alright? You’ll be glad you did.
This is also what I look like as I leap out of bed every morning.
Possess the commanding presence of the caped hero as soon as spring! Superman is imagined here in mid-gait, surely contemplating his next gallant gesture towards the mild-mannered American people. The 2013 film Man of Steel, known for its cinematic portrayal of Superman’s origin story, is the aesthetic inspiration for the red-and-blue superhero seen here.
DC brings us this 7-inch boxed figure for spring, and it will be available for pre-order come March. Up, up, and away!
Truth, justice and the American way.
Instead of blue….we now have the Black costume version.
Expected Release Date: March 2014
