Hot Toys Christopher Reeve Superman in 2010
Merely typing this post sends tingles down my spine.
The news was announced by no less than Hot Toys' main man Howard Chan himself in the latest issue of Milk magazine and highlighted at Sideshow Freaks forum.
My wishlist of accompanying accessories for this figure includes:
1) Clark Kent head with removable glasses, hat, suit, trenchcoat and briefcase. If the hat will be oversized on his head, then give a head that comes sculpted with the hat, ala Sideshow's Indy, along with a hat accessory.
2) One Superman tee, similar to what came with Brandon Routh's Clark Kent for shirt ripping fun & poses.
Pantless Hot Toys Supes is sporting the tee I am referring to.
3) A crystal and kryptonite.
I wouldn't be too unhappy if they skipped the last accessories in the list though. But the first two are a must!
Hot Toys Superman Returns was my very first Hot Toys figure in 2006, and I preordered without seeing the actual product. What a figure it turned out to be, for it's time.
In my review then, I wished for a Hot Toys Christopher Reeve Superman. It's great when such dreams are realised.
When the Hot Toys 2-in-1 Superman Returns Version was released, I bought two of them...
...along with Jor-El,
I hope Hot Toys releases Jor-El in his black costume...
...as it would be a nice accompanying figure to the first Hot Toys Jor-El...
...and a great sculpt which most likely opened the door to Hot Toys Don Vito Corleone.
For old times' sake, here's a look back at Hot Toys Superman 2-in-1 Version.
That's no movie poster, it's an action figure
And the Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition DVD
Really looking forward to this, hope it hits before the end of 2010.
