This MoS iconic statue would go perfect with the TDKR icon statue.

With my LCS discount, this will come to less than $100, so that's a no-brainer for me. Both the 1/6 Bane and Catwoman Icon figures were great, so I'm hoping this will follow suit.

I think its weird they do collectibles from brand new films, what if its a steaming pile then they are simply trophies of an embarrassment.

That means they will be offered cheaper later on like the Green Lantern movie statues and busts. I can't see this one failing DC/Warners have too much riding on this one to let it fail.

The actor atleast looks like Superman, so I'd say that's a plus. But I haven't really seen him in anything to determine whether he's a good actor or not. As for the suit, what are people not liking about it? The lack of the red undies? :lol

http://www.toyark.com/news/toy-fair-59/toy-fair-2013-dc-man-of-steel-and-superman-statue-images-7256/

The sculpt looks very soft and doesn't look much like Cavill to me.

Gipetto0812
02-10-2013, 03:14 PM
I think what's making them look soft is the fact that DC is casting them in the translucent skin color then painting just details on top similar to the arkham 7" figures. I bet these will look even better when repainted. I'm loving them though

banthafett
02-10-2013, 05:43 PM

Why do they look like they're wearing rubber masks?

Gipetto0812
02-10-2013, 11:37 PM
Why do they look like they're wearing rubber masks?

It's due to them casting these in a flesh tone similar to the arkham city figures. Just look at in hand pics of the Arkham Riddler and Catwoman for the new examples. Doesn't look bad on those b/c they're smaller while these are almost twice the size

banthafett
02-11-2013, 12:55 AM
I like that they are cast in the flash tone, instead of the ugly flesh color they and many other companies use that look like a melted crayon.

Yeah, why? It sort of looks like the "flesh" parts are made of wax or something. Are they going to stay that way?

No matter what, these are all a PASS for me. No interest in buying anything from "Man of Steel" I HATE the look of things in the movie.

But aren't those action figures and not statues? I expect action figures to look rubbery like that, not statues.

I agree. For the general statue collector it's not wise to use this method of casting. But for someone like me who repaints most of his stuff, this works as a nice base flesh tone

The Arkham figures look great though :dunno

I'm not sure what these "plastic" references are a out. Is this referring to the translucent flesh tone resin for the faces? The flesh tone resin provides some depth.

I dont think they look bland at all. The "soft" paint and crap lighting isn't helping things. The translucent plastic will look ten times better in person. And i still think supermans hair should be darker.

The paint job on the face really does this piece a disservice. It is a great sculpt and I really can't take my eyes off it. I think when it's lit up the translucency makes it difficult to take a photo but it does look good under the right lighting.

Not a fan of the pose or the head but like the detail in the costume and the base. All in all probably pick this up on ebay in a year for $20.

The face looks great imo. It's the paint and "soft" looking translucent skin that's throwing off the likeness. Kotobukiya's still looks much better. I'd love to see a repaint of this though. You guys think I'd be able to get this cheaper later on, or should I pre-order it now?


Kotobukiyas is going to be hard to beat in terms of likeness. I can't wait to see the HT figure.

Also that damn StatueHunter75 and his evil reviews!!! It's all his fault, he made me buy them! He said "Bwuy dis Soopah-man and the Dahk Knight day're wicked awezum!"

I'll let you guys know what I think after I get them delivered.

CANCEL CANCEL CANCEL!!!!!!!! I saw this today m8, and HONESTLY there IS NO LIKENESS... It looks NOTHING like Caville IMHO!! I could have bought it for $130... And I wouldn't have touched it with CBGs money...:lecture

Thanks for the concern brother Spidey, I got it for $99 and I honestly don't care if it's a good Cavill likeness, there's just something I like about the both of them, it will be nice to have 2 (relatively cheap) movie versions of my favorite characters on my desk, and I won't have to wait a year to get them!:lol

I agree the face paint leaves a lot to be desired, but (IMO) the pic above, over processed as it is, shows me that the Cavill likeness is totally there in the sculpt. Darkened up like that it looks much more like him, I believe a good repaint could really bring it out. And for $99 bucks for this guy, I may be brave enough to try! :pray:

Sorry Dude it wasn't meant to be a bash... It was just the FIRST thought I had when I saw it. I should have said that I don't think this pics represent the statue properly though. I can say having seen it in person it looks better then those pics suggest. However, I do stand by the fact that in THOSE pics it looks like good old Screech jumped in the costume... At least to me .... I think it is the way some of those pics make the neck look longer for some reason long.

Well snoop I think that video looks pretty much like the statue, but I think the skin tone is a little lighter then that. I personally don't think the likeness is right. The statue looks good from the neck down but the likeness is just not there for me, but that is just my opinion.

snoop101
05-06-2013, 04:58 PM
It's supposedly a 3-d rendering of Henry Cavill, so the likeness is definitely there. I think the choice to use translucent plastic and their average looking paint is what throws off the likeness. Disappointing really.........

Yeah Snoop I was going to say the same thing, GG does digi scans of the actors for their products so I think with the right paint job he would look spot on!

Ah... Discussions... How I love them... However, after experiencing the annoyance of the same people constantly hacking on a piece I am excited about, I have come to realize that ones opinion does not always need to be shared over and over... Especially if it is detracting from the enjoyment of others. Snoopy asked me a question and I answered it... Nuff said.... And in the end I really do hope guys get enjoyment out of this one.

OK I got them both today! And I'll be the first to admit... you guys were right about the poor paint job on Superman, especially the face.

But I still really like these guys, they look great together! And I can see Cavill's likeness there, just needs better paint.

And at this price, I am going to attempt a repaint of superman and not be to overly neurotic about botching it up!

thanks, i used americana acrylics...cocoa and calico red for a base tone and medium flesh dry brush on top, mixture all 3 to the lips and eye sockets (knuckle area, red'er on palms and finger tips) red wash on eyes and white/gray to dim the whites, black for eyebrows and hairline where you overpaint, i couldnt walk you through it for the life of me lol. my only tip would be work slow and have fun
really only took about 20 mins

Thanks for the nice greeting and compliment. I like the way Catwoman turned out the paint is not perfect but for the price I got her for I cannot complain much. I would have loved for them to have sculpted her with her goggles up, I fill that the sculpted might have took the simple route and just painted her with the googles on. It was a easier way for him to get out of painting her face, which sucks because as it is she looks just like Anne who I think is really hot by the way lol

Bane looks awesome as well, I would like to get some of the villains in this form like the Bane, the Joker that is hard to find now, and Zod. I know that hot toys maybe better but I just like the statue format more. I was thanking about getting the Green Lantern one as well but I don't know about that especially if they reboot it, on the other had if they made Sinestro from the movie I might reconsider lol

Got Superman the other day, and while I didn't hate the factory paint job, I didn't exactly love it either. So after overcoming my fear of completely screwing it up, I decided to do a repaint of the head and hands. Even with my moderate skills, I'm super happy with the results! Hope you guys like it.

I think both have good points and both have bad, mainly the paint. But purely from a sculpt standpoint I think the DC Icon statue captures Cavills likeness better, especially with the repaints we've seen here.

Personally I prefer the stoic museum pose to the crouched Koto pose, actually I wouldn't mind owning both!

I like the Icons especially since I have the icons bats statue and he is standing so Supes would not look right in the crouch position, that's bats pose lol

I think kotobukiya did a much better job capturing Cavills likeness. The pose is bad *** too.

My Superman statue showed up! One day after I ordered him from ToyNK. The other three are on their way from another store. I really like him a lot. I think his paint job looks fine in person. I was actually very pleasantly surprised, but I think the flash in some of the photos on here was killing some of the subtlety.

He know proudly adorns my office at work.

I'll have to keep an eye on this. The previous couple of exclusives they offered on the WB Store (the Green Lantern Sinestro mini-bust and the Flashpoint action figure boxset) didn't sell well at all. Sinestro had been marked down from $70 to $10 by the time he finally sold out. It makes me wonder how heavily discounted this one will be in a few months.

That looks cool, but he didn't ever wear that suit, did he? I'm pretty sure he wore the traditional suit in the dream sequence. That being said, if the color scheme/base is representative of an evil Superman who joined Zod, that's awesome, and a perfect piece for a Con exclusive; something that isn't necessary, but is badass, nonetheless.

That black-suit Supes is gorgeous and I would love to add him to my collection. I think he's going to be really rare though.

Well, I thought Krypton Zod was shipping in August, but he's on his way to me as of yesterday. I am excited to see him! this not having to wait a year is just wonderful.

I am sure he's going to need a little paint help, these things always do... I can pull out Arkham Harley and do her touching up at the same time. I keep meaning to get around to that yet never do, here's my chance. Those two on the workbench at the same time, should make for a funny conversation. [I wonder what Zod would say to Harley in real life. Probably nothing good. Lawl....]

My b'day is coming up in a couple of months, I think I might ask for Iconic Faora then. I don't know, she is on sale NOW and I'm scared she'll go back to the Phantom Zone without me [i.e. sell out]. Really need her too.
