I agree that those are some great shots of the new "2 in 1" Superman and his poppa Jor-El Grange! I hope to get both of them someday.

I got one! Warning though, his cape is hard to put on, I took it off, and can't get it to look right now. This is a great figure, he looks more like Tom Cruise than Routh though. And his Clark head looks like a little piggy.

Take the neck & head of the torso and then put the cape on and then replace the neck & head back on the figure. Still fiddlely (is that a word???) but easier!

A friend dropped by and showed me pix of his kitbashed Clark Kent using a Hot Toys Body and Ken Superman suit. While he had to remove the padding from the Ken Superman suit, I think the kitbash worked out fine.

Just got this email from vikingplayground:


Per my conversation with distributor yesterday, Superman 2in1 is delayed until late in February, probably even March. Jor El figure will be in next week or the one after it.

I ask this here because they have this superman figure in stock. They are in hong kong but with one of there shipping methods it is cheaper than big bad toy store and they don't have theres in stock yet. But I don't want to spend $160-$170 someplace and then not get the figure or get it all messed up because they didn't package it well.

I got my superman figure from actionhq. They shipped it to me in like 4 to 5 days tops and I even had a tracking number to check the status of the order. However, the box didn't come in perfect conditon as it had a small crease on the metallic slip on sleeve. Other than that, the figure and the rest of the box was intact and in perfect condition. So if you don't mind if that may happen to you and you plan on taking the figure out of the box(which you problaby will!) then go for it. I myself don't care if the box is a bit damaged. Just as long as the figure is intact and in great condition. I'm happy with my purchase!

I dealt with them multiple times...the good thing is that they are reliable.

The bad thing is that they are TOO EXPENSIVE and have some odd business practices...not bad ones, just strange and misleading.

For example, I had pre-ordered some Microman Superman figures from them a LOOOOONG time ago. Around the time they were finally released, ActionHQ claims they have them in-stock....I wait about 2-3 weeks and then e-mail them asking if they shipped the figures if they are "in-stock".....customer service tells me that they change their availibility to "in-stock" once their quantities had been alocated to them. Meaning they got their 200-300 Microman Superman figures alotted to them...but they're sitting in a warehouse in Japan or wherever instead of being actually IN-STOCK at ActionHQ. Needless to say, there were a lot of hold-ups for whatever reason and they did ship the items once they got in and refunded me around $35-$40 bucks.

They're good, but I wasn't happy by that experience so I've taken my business elsewhere. Aside from some Microman figures I've also got some HT Snap-Kits from them and a Takara Batman. But that was before the whole MM Superman thing.

Which Superman figure are you after and which one is in stock???? It sounds to me your after the Hot Toys Supes, and the only one I found there was the Medicom Supes. Just making sure you are ordering the right one is all. Maybe you are after the Medicom one, I dunno and I can't tell. It's your business, and I guess you'll work it out.

I am after the hot toys 2 in 1 figure. It is listed in there store here: http://www.actionhq.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=2923

Also thanks to fistfulmetal and bardoon for your comments on this store I will probably order form them once I get the cash. The figure will be opened so some minor damage to the package is not that big of a deal to me.

I sold off my HT Batman so that I could buy the Takara version. If I had to cancel anything right now, it would be the HT Supes 2, since I already have the first version.....and the wait for it is slowly driving me insane! :google

BigBad now has Jor-El in stock, but Supes is still up for pre-order. Sadly I had to cancel Papa-J cause there's too much Star Wars stuff I want to to catch up with at the moment. But I can't wait for Superman and Clark, got my spare body all ready for him!:chew

Do you have any other versions of the Batman Begins figure (ie. Hot Toys or Medicom) or the Superman figure? Or is this the 2nd TAKARA Batman that you'll be getting?

If you do, then I guess its fine to cancel the TAKARA Batman. Otherwise - I'd suggest you get the TAKARA Batman instead, its really something awesome ;)

But that's just me - TAKARA Batman blew me away. Nothing else compared that time. Didn't matter if the suit was non-movie accurate/too slim, or the boots were ugly (Are they even boots?! Look like shoes instead). But its one of my favourite figures now.

I had wanted to get the HT Superman v1 when it was released. But then it was due to the lack of accessories that was the deal breaker for me. As time went on, I kept thinking about it, and I really wanted it.

I even considered getting it after the price had gone up and almost bought it at one of the shops. The reason I didn't was I noticed something wrong with one of the sleeves (it looked kind short and was exposing abit more of the arm than I liked and maybe it was just that piece I held and examined - and it was the LAST piece available).

It looks like my patience paid off as HT released v2 with more accessories, a higher price. But I think this was worth it as IMO, v2 is a better headsculpt, even if it might look like Tom Cruise! :P

Having said all that, I guess its up to individual preference. You might have some other figures that you want to get. I'm very selective/choosy about the figures I buy. And I'm also new in the 1/6th game. I only have seven 1/6th figures now and I can see the number only going up as time goes by.

Yeah, there's releases that have both the tape and without the tape. There's no difference between the two.

I got multiples of the 2-in-1 and some came with the tape and only one came without the tape.

Got mine as well. The Superman is of course very nice, but the Clark outfit is really most impressive. Nice cut to the suit and looks much better than the Dragon suits. I love the detail on the Superman suit though, here is a nice closeup showing the fabric. The new heads are great. Since Prison Break (and maybe before in the military line) Hot Toys has been using a semi translucent plastic for the heads and it gives them a much more realistic look to them. Kinda like wax figures look.

Anybody got any leads where I can find the Clark Kent gray suit? Any help is appreciated.

I used to see the original Kent parted out on eBay all the time. But that well has been dry for quite some time. I'd keep checking though.

Well I must say I am very happy with my latest purchase!! Hot Toys is freakin sweet!

Superman is great, but I am surprised to say that I am more impressed with Clark. The suit is amazing!!!! The tailoring among the best I have ever seen in a 1/6 figure. It really has to be seen to be appreciated. Its perfect. Like they took a real suit and shrunk it. I wish Sideshow tailored its costumes this well.

Anyway, I am very very satisfied with this purchase!!!! It cost $150.02 with shipping from Toys2, and the true type body and neck I bought for Clark cost me $30 shipped. So $180.02 total for 2 figures, not bad IMO!!

Hell yes! The Superman figure is so much better than I thought he was gonna be. Pictures make him look amazing, but he is 10 times better in person.

Now that I have this Superman I am SOOO close to re ordering the Takara Batman. I had it on pre order from BBTS, but I didnt have the funds in my account so I had to cancel. But now I just cant have Superman all alone on the shelf. I am gonna end up paying $15 more because BBTS upped the price, but I think I am just gonna order it.

Hey guys, great pics by the way! My buddy just got the Superman/Clark 2 in 1 and it looks great. He also just bought a body for it, but lost a bid for a Hot Toys Clark neck. There is another Hot Toys neck, and it is from RPD Leon. The shade looks similar, but the listing says "long neck". It looks almost the same to me. Does anyone know how much longer it is, and if the Leon skin tone is closer to Clarks than bronze neck?

this is a good color for clark, what he means by long neck is that Hot Toys has two neck adapters, a short one compatiable with old hot toys/DML and the long for the newr hot toys stuff.

KobeLover
03-11-2008, 01:48 PM
Alright, my buddy let me take over his account since he doesnt' post often. So here's my question. These necks are going for more than I'd like to pay on eBay. Especially when I see some BIN for like $3.99 and stuff. I don't want to be paying $10+ for a neck, before shipping. So how is this for an idea. I also have the Jor-El figure. I'm wondering if his neck is the same shade, and if it's the same style as Superman's neck. If so, I'd almost rather take Jor-El's neck and place on the new body I'm waiting on, and then buy a neck that doesn't necessarily match Jor-El's skin exactly. Because Jor-El has that turtleneck-ish outfit, so his neck is much more covered than Clarks.

But I guess the question is, is Jor-El's neck the same as Superman's? Does Jor-El even use the same Hot Toys body and the clothing just has more stuffing? I haven't taken Jor-El out yet, that's why I'm asking. I've also never owned 1/6th scale figure other than these so I'm not sure how delicate it is to move and lift the clothing off of Jor-El.

Thank in advance! :)

At least I didn't post the same pic repeatedly in the same thread as some do. Which I don't have problem with either.

How are you guys tucking in the cape on the 2in1 version? I read in jeffs review that he took the neck stump out and tucked it around that way.

Some pics i notice the collar looks loose and others it looks perfect whats the trick?

The collar on my 2-in-1 was perfect, and I'm afraid to remove the cape for the fear I won't be able to replace so it looks as good.

OSCORP
03-11-2008, 08:46 PM
Well i know edwint has taken his off and put it back on numerous times and it looks good.In jeff's review he said he takes the neck stump out then puts the cape around the collar then puts the neck stump back and it's seamless.

Maybe some others can chime in on how they do it and make it look nice.(if they even have to at all)

nash
03-11-2008, 08:53 PM
the cape on the one I opened looks great just out of the box. No need to take off the cape to refit it etc. Probably is case by case basis.

03-12-2008, 03:57 PM
FINALLY got my supes 2in1 and jor el!! got 2x of supes and one of jor el. played with supes/clark, and i gotta say, amazing fig. the HS detail trumps the 1st ver, and the 2nd release clark with extra supes head. i think i'll keep jor el in the box.

oh and the stupid person i am, i tried to take clark's glasses off...and it snapped.



SO EFFIN pissed that i did that.

but overall, the figure is amazing.

if you're on the fence, PULL THE TRIGGER AND GET HIM NOW. You will not regret it and now is the chance to get him before he starts reaching the $200+ range like the original release.

Just got the figure yesterday and he is an amazing looking figure. I have a few questions though.
Is the superman outfit removable?
If not is the superman belt removable?
I have trouble getting the hands on and off. The hand comes off the ball joint to easily and then I have to struggle to get the ball out of his wrist is there a technique to get the hands off easier?

oh and just curious. can the Super suit be taken off or is it sewed on like some Medi figs? i love HT bods clothed, but their shoulders are too...rounded or something. maybe file them down

i dont think they can be taken off. like you said sewn over the body.. there may be some crfty people who have taken it off though, i dont know:monkey1
