Looks good!

I wish they make him looking down. Don't know why Sideshow is always making the characters looking up when in a superhero pose like the two Caps....

Superman is on top of a building so I think he should be looking down......

If you read the interview/article, the sculptor says he's working on two portraits. One looking into the distance, the other looking down.


The figure will come with two head sculpts. “He’ll have one staring-into-the-distance portrait,” Andy explains. “The other one will be looking down, like in the Anka print, with very stern eyes, like he’s getting ready to light something up with his heat vision.

I seriously cannot wait to pre-order this. I feel like we've waiting far too long for a Superman PF. But I am glad to know it's coming!! I am also happy that there are 2 sculpts. I personally would have been fine with just 1, but since so many people like things one way, or another, it is better this way.

Really hoping this one is NOT fully sculpted so it fits in with the Batman and Joker PFs.

Definitely my #1 most anticipated piece, wondering if this being on the "road to SDCC" means we'll see it revealed there? I wouldn't be shocked if they held off on pre-orders of this until next years "Man of Steel", though.

as the progress report shows he's only getting started, it will be AT LEAST another 6 months before we see any preorder details, and at least 1 year before release.

I am surprised how slow sideshow is making progress on the dc lines, i would expecting them to be rolling ahead full steam on dc but instead they seem to continue allocate significant resources to all the ____ noone cares about.

SS said Andy is working from Illustrator Kris Anka's concept art not based on any specific comic book version.You can get a pretty good idea what the finished Statue will look like from the Anka print.

The Fortress of Solitude Base in one of those photo's looks 5"-6" tall.That will put Superman up there.And two Head sculpts this should be quite nice.

This is gonna rule. Exclusive should be more than a print, I imagine it will be a switch-out arm holding a chunk of kryptonite. That would be cool to display with the (hopefully) light-up eyes portrait. There have been several times where he gained an immunity to kryptonite so I think it could work.

If it's fully sculpted I WON'T be getting it no matter how much I like superman. If a fabric cape and it's size are the only thing that's going to make this a so called "premium format" then SS won't be getting my money. It's the same reason I didn't get the Cyclops PF. No "pajamas" no buy.

If it's fully sculpted I WON'T be getting it no matter how much I like superman. If a fabric cape and it's size are the only thing that's going to make this a so called "premium format" then SS won't be getting my money. It's the same reason I didn't get the Cyclops PF. No "pajamas" no buy.

I would bet money it will be pj suit with a sculpted cape like the Batman PF.

Didn't think about that until you said something I hope nothing happens to anyone's but that is why I buy direct from sideshow so if there is a problem it can be fixed and replaced. I would be just as worried about superman's too since it will be in a easier state to break then Batman's IMO.

Think I'm going to have to do some culling on exactly what characters/lines I collect from here on out, and even part with some pieces, or at least condemn them back into storage hell. Just too many things coming up that feel like must haves, gonna have to draw some pretty harsh lines for myself somewhere, and more strictly define exactly what characters I'm going to collect from here on out. Meaning even if I love a piece, that still doesn't make it an an instant buy any longer.

But Superman, going to be hard to pass him up. Especially if I get Batman. And unless something goes very wrong and I will be getting Batman. Oh hell...

Yeah, I hear you on the line drawing. If I truly collected everything I wanted or had the money for I would be two things, broke and I really don't think I would really appreciate what I have. I am really trying to focus on some major players I have grown up with and because space is limited, I am trying to pick my favs for permanent display.

This will be the end-all, be-all for DC PFs. I can't imagine a character more synonymous with 'superheros' than the Man of Steel. And finally, it's coming.

If I was to get ANY of the DC PF line, this will be it. A Luthor PF to accompany it (down the road) will be the 'icing on the cake.'

The art print doesn't seem to have the shorts - I'm very nervous about that. It doesn't have the Mandarin collar either though - so it's not the 52 suit.

And if this is fully sculpted I might as well close this forum down right now. Sideshow finally gets to do what I want most - DC characters, and they don't do them mixed media? I'd seriously consider just chucking the whole thing.

I almost think they would have to be about half or completely mad to do something silly on what would be the first Man of Steel PF. I think it will likely stay close to the classic form IMO.

I think mixed media is what makes a PF a PF. They should continue with fully sculpted Comiquettes and mixed media PFs. This fully sculpted PF nonsense smacks of SS trying to cut corners to increase profits, while charging the same as for a more elaborate piece.

I personally love the Wolverine & Sabertooth PF's, lol, but yes the materials and techniques of the cut & sew department are always improving. This one looks spot on, like it stepped right off the comic pages. There are also some cutting edge fabric coloring techniques being explored on these PF's, the team has found some very clever new ways to portray light/shadow on these miniature costumes that works VERY well for comic book characters like Bats & Supes. I'm sure they will be sharing some behind-the-scenes info on that on the Sideshow Experience website soon.

There is only one Superman statue comes with this Jim Lee pose from DC Direct and it was sculpted by the Master Tim Bruckner :hi5: The Sideshow Superman PF will be at 1:4 scale (over 20 inches) while the Bruckner's Superman is only 10 inches tall..

The only other thing you'd do with a SUpes statue I imagine is having him in a sort of battle pose ready to kick ass or a flying pose which means having some part of the figure used to like hold Supes off the ground in some way which I don't like(and for some reason the bit holding supes off the ground always seems to go up his arse).

Good choice. If/when Sideshow makes a second Superman PF, I hope they will go for this classic confident Superman pose!

Yeah something like that would be cool. I know some don't like his art work but Jim Lee's Supes looks cool I think;

Gary Frank's take on Supes was the bomb though and I'd ____en pounce on a PF of Clark changing to Supes;

Gary frank's Supes is totally Chris Reeve too.

I am looking for a more museum quality pose here. It's not that I dislike comiquette style or anything. For my first Superman, I want him looking like he belongs in the Louvre. The next one made can be him dodging bullets, leaping buildings and $#!^.

I would have liked a flying pose. But that has been done so many times. I see it on so many statues. So to me this current pose that ssc is going with isn't boring. It just seems to fit Supe's personality. He's boss! Anyways, I love it and I'm excited to see it with clothing. Now, if only I could have a sexy Supergirl and sexy Batgirl to go with it.

They aren't going to put something up for preorder that is going to be first previewed at comic con. They did the teaser but that's going to be it til con. There is a slightly better chance for batman PF but I doubt that will happen either.

I don't think you will miss out on either of these guys' EX unless you wait for like weeks. I have a feeling they will definitely make plenty of these so if you order in the first few days, you should be safe for sure. I know people are freaking out because of the C3PO and R2D2 sellout but something tells me they have a limited run of EXs on those because of the complexity of the parts and possibly keeping the clean versions looking really good, maybe a complicated paint process. In any case, I think anyone who wants an EX when these guys go on sale should be able to get one as long as you don't wait for days before ordering.

I reckon he'll be there. We've seen precious little DC action but I'm tipping there'll be a buttload this year. The sculptor Andy Bergholtz(sp?) said the pics were taken a few months ago on statue forum.

They wanna WOW! everyone then the way to do it is show the Batman and Supes PFs off next to each other man. Bats maybe first quarter of 2013 and Supes 2nd quarter 2013?

Can't wait for this. I thought Batman would go up for PO during SDCC, but I really don't think Superman will, whether they show it at the Con or not.

I remember last year they released videos of the things that weren't at the Con but would pop up over the course of the next year. I think Superman will fall into that category.

If he is done and put up for public display I think Supes will be ready for PO soon enough. I imagine the Bat will be offered 1st but I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Supes go up a few months after.

That would be amazing if they offered up the trinity for PO by the end of this year. Can you imagine Batman, Superman, and WW all up for PO by then?

SSC would be storming out of the gates this year with their DC PFs if that's the case. It would certainly go a long way to make up for the dead time they have had the past year since the Bats bust and the Joker PF were put up for order. A lot of wallets will groan, but damn.....that's excitement!
