Here's my Clark custom. I took a dremel to his head and then re-sculpted the hair, so the parting is on the correct side. It's taken a while to source all of the bits but I think it was worth it. I had to dye the shirt to get it the right colour, and the tie was created from photos of the replica released a while back, printed on fabric paper and ironed on to cotton. The glasses were the real pain to get decent. In the end I had to find some close-enough's and re-work them a bit, as well as paint them.

Yeah, the head is HT, I had to use a different body though, as the Reeve body has nothing below the knee due to his boots. Like I mentioned, the glasses were the best I could get them modding a pair i found, a bit smaller would be great tho. I bought the case, it's a little larger than the one seen in the movie, but not bad for off the shelf.

Great work. Thanks for the link. I missed this one before!

That's wrong. With the boots off, the Reeve body is just like any other.
I am using it for my Kent custom.

You're right you know, what I must have meant is that he has no feet due to his boots being one solid piece. He is also pretty stacked, so he would be difficult to fit all those layers on with the clothes I got. Glad you like the custom.

Yes. It's very good. I am very impressed.
The suit i have i built for a larger frame, plus i am using the Reeve suit underneath(With only the cape removed), so i needed the Reeve body with the attached neck.

Good stuff. I really want to do a Superman III version of the shirt rip scene in the junkyard. It looks like the only way would be to alter to hair to accommodate for the limitations of the sculpt or to resculpt it screen accurate and have the entire face repainted.

That is also a possibility i never considered. Good thinking.

Actually, you don't have to repaint the whole face! On mine I just reprinted the forehead and it's pretty much invisible! :)

BTW, where did you get these awesome papers?

Thanks for the compliments on the newspapers! They were put together with pics I found online and screengrabs from the bluray. I also made some pages for the inside give them more of a realistic look, and not just have them be covers. I used ads that were run in the newspapers prior to the release of the first movie.

If anyone wants a copy of the files to print their own, give me a PM and I can email them.

I think you might find it difficult to get an exact match to the one from Superman III.

There's a suit coming out that's a similar colour, but there is no waist coat and the tailoring looks a bit off.

http://www.manofactionfigures.com/products/classic-suit-set-cream-16-scale-accessories-figureboss

Maybe you could find a white suit and dye it?

Or if you want a look other than a black suit maybe you could go with a grey one. It's accurate to Superman the Movie, The Richard Donner Cut and Superman III. You would just need to switch out the shirt and tie.

Toys City suits are really well tailored. I went with the dark blue pinstripe, but they do a grey too.

I would recreate the suit from Superman the movie in his first appearance. The only difficulty is finding a blue button up shirt and the tie.

I plan on making the tie using paint markers on a black tie. Roughly following the patterns on screen. The blue shirt is what I am currently trying to track, aside from that I have the whole outfit! I always see conflicting imagery of the fedora... sometimes it looks black, sometimes gray. I went black for now since there is a really nice black fedora made for the DID Gangster figure.

For the suit it is made by Mens Homme, it actually is the exact same one as in the beginning of this thread. I had bought it for my Bruce Wayne, but then I quickly realized it is a dead ringer for the suit in Superman The Movie.

If you want an accurate colour for the shirt, try Dylon "China Blue". I used it for mine on a white shirt and it came out pretty accurate to the screen grab you posted. It took a couple of goes. the first one came out a bit too dark, but the second was great.

For the tie you can use the pattern I made from photos of an accurately reproduced tie if you want. Mine is a little off from the screen grab as I tied it too low on the pattern. If you tie it higher it will look just like the movie.

Print the attached image at 55% scale for a good size.

I did that for the custom i made for my Brother for christmas. I had to carefully cut the threads and totally remove the cape.

In Superman Returns, there's a scene where he flies up through an elevator and, accelerating *really* fast, flies right out of his Kent clothing revealing the full super suit underneath.
It *looks* cool but makes you wonder hos it's supposed to work.
It's fair enough if it's supposed to materialise out of the suit.
But they never say that...

I am going to have to do that as well! I just need to get a good thread remover tool to do it right.

I even think of the new Man of Steel... that cape just would never fit under there! Its funny the things you don't think of until you put a figure together.

The Man Of Steel suit will probably retain New 52 traits i would imagine. The cape will likely be held in the suit till he needs it to appear.
It's too big to fit under clothing otherwise.
As for the Reeve cape removal, i lifted the cape up from the suit and just used a scalpel to cut the threads one at a time. As i was pulling the cape up, only a small cut was required per thread, so there was no risk of damaging the suit.

Thanks, the belt is from a set done by ACI
No the hat is not from the DID gangster figure, I brought it loose on collectible Kit Bash website.

I have that DID figure so I used the hat and done some more pics, the first 2 pics are the DID Gangster figs hat:

This is the basic look I was going for:

i like that your Clark look matches Superman IV, and the lack of spit curl makes his hair accurate for Superman from that movie too.

I got a better matched blue checked shirt for my Clark Kent custom today. It's a far closer match for the one he uses at the end of the movie.
I also got a black tie.
I have yet to get decent glasses for him. But i am still looking.

Spectacular! Very nice work on this one! My hope is that with MOS gaining popularity with upcoming movies, I hope we may get a DX version of his Supes one day with a Kent figure. I wish they would do the same for Reeve but I have my doubts that it will happen.

On the way with mine! I still need to dye the shirt and make a proper tie. I have a decent leather bag coming in from China soon as well! I am going for a look similar to his first appearance in Superman the Movie. Lots of futzing left to do with it!

Nice base, this is gonna look good when your head arrives.

It's the base that came with Mattel Superman. I bought the figure to steal his suit..... And I ended up liking the stand too.

Looks great! Have you considered putting the 'shirt opening' Clark's other leg forward? Then you would get right-left-right, might look even better. :)

If that sculpt comes with a neck attached, you are out of luck unless you use a white shirt.
Either use the short to disguise the neck, or remove the neck and put it on a HT Reeve body(Or similar, with an attached neck).

Then buy a white suit, and some khaki dye. Only put one spoonful of the dye in the first time, and keep repeating the process till it's the right colour.

Here's a quick pick of Clark while changing into Superman.
Christmas time my wife picked up the phone booth for me at Hobby Lobby on sale for $25.
I knew at that point I needed a Clark Kent kitbash.
I used the ZY Toys blue suit (highly recommended) with Hot Toys dress shoes and socklets.
Clark is on a Hot Toys Superman body, Indiana Jones gripping hands with a Superman suit. The cape is tucked under the jacket. I didn't have the heart to cut the cape.

So I finally bought a body/suit to make a Reeve Clark Kent. Put it all together, and went to put it next to the rest of my figures, and the thing is way too short! It has to be at least an inch shorter then the HT Reeve Superman. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm not much of a customizer so I'm not sure if there may be solution other then buying another body.

most bodies these days come with two length foot pegs ,have you tried using the longer pegs ,if they came with the body you bought ,or buy some loose long pegs or get some made ,ive had some custom made ones from barry ,username on here ,great, did the job a treat ,hes a great bloke and should be able to hook you up

No, I don't think it does, unfortunately. Which is crazy because the thing really is quite short compared to other figures. What about the MOS Superman? I think I remember people talking about that having longer pegs. Could maybe swap them?

MoS Superman I believe uses longer pegs, which I've heard is the only thing making him taller than BvS Superman. People said they have put MoS pegs on BvS Superman and posted pictures, and it made him the same height as MoS Supes.

MoS pegs might be worth a shot.

Well, I tried taking off Superman's boots to look at the pegs. Problem is the peg is coming off with the boot, and I'm don't want to fuss too much with it as I don't want to ruin a perfectly good figure. They don't look all that big, though. Not big enough to help my Oompa Loompa Clark Kent, anyway.
