That is what I was thinking- to reduce shipping right?

If you contact them they'll ship them together for you...even if you order them separately. That's what I did for my Superman Returns and Batman Begins figures. They're great over at Toy Square.

Oh, that is good to know. That is honestly why I was waiting to order him because shipping from Canada costs a bit.

So any chance we'll see these though Sideshow... or is that a no-no being a DC license?

Pretty sure I'll be getting Jor-El... but I'll probably wait a bit on ordering him.

10-29-2007, 08:37 PM
Got mine. I just don't know why he has black boots. He doesn't wear those in the movie. Kinda distracting.

He has white those are proto pics.(i still dunno whys toys2 don't have superman up yet.)

Grange Wallis
10-29-2007, 08:45 PM
There would be no chance that Sideshow would carry these figures. I'm think due to the Marvel licence being held there.

Darklord Dave
10-29-2007, 11:06 PM
No, they can't carry it because of DCD. If anyone were to distribute it in the US it would probably be them.

Man those are great pics of Jor-El, and Supes doesn't look bad either.
I wish I had know like 6 months ago, now I have to chose between The Men From Krypton and the Duo from Appleseed.
There is so much great 1/6 stuff coming out, I am so glad that Medicom pushed their Marvel RAH's and Kenshiro to April. Gives my wallet time to recover.

gdb
10-30-2007, 03:03 AM
I was thinking of some accessories to go with Jor-El. Crystals, of course -- esp. the green one. Also, how about a 1:6 baby wrapped in Superman colors for a baby Kal-El. Anyone have any idea on where we could get any of those?

OSCORP
10-30-2007, 11:56 AM
I'd almost bet $ we'll see a black suit jor-el at some point.Hopefully they give him that clear wand or whatever it's called that lights up.

Grange Wallis
10-30-2007, 05:01 PM
I'm thinking I get a black suit sewn of the original my by my Mum, she's be able to knock one up I reckon... Will need the blacks from somewhere. That what his accessories should have been, the green cyrstal and the black judgement outfit.

Yikes.

I just made the conscious choice to spend the extra 19 bucks and get them from ABC Express. Why? On the off chance that maybe...just maybe...I'll get 'em quicker than you folks who made the (logical) decision to order from our Canadian friends.

I'm either insane, have a wanton disregard for the value of a dollar, or I'm completely impatient. Either way, my prognosis isn't looking too good.

I'm pumped, though! Can't wait! :monkey5

The difference in arrival times is minimal. Hot Toys ships them locally and out to Canada the same time, just takes a week to 10 days longer to get to North America/Toys2.

Do you guys think he'll be available at other places besides Toys2 (like cornerstore etc?)?

You're making it sound like it's either Toys2 or Hong Kong!

I'm holding out because CSC's prices are usually better and because the retail price on the HK publicity was $100 for superman and about $85 for Jor-El vs. $125/$105 at Toys2.

OSCORP

Yeah, definitely buy from Toys2 if you want to save money. I got both Jor El and Supes 2 in 1 from them and each individual(including the ENORMOUS shipping charge from Canada to Texas) figure's price is still cheaper than BBTS's price.
And the BBTS price doesn't include shipping yet. Still, BBTS is a great company and I use them too.

johnnyhaggis
10-31-2007, 12:27 PM
How much do they charge you for shipping to Texas? Did you ask for express or something?

I'm in Canada, and to ship one figure anywhere in the USA regular is usually about $14, or loose about $8.

Toys2's shipping rates to Canada are resonable, about cost.

johnnyhaggis
10-31-2007, 12:31 PM
There's no rush to buy the Jor-El is there? That's not limited run - it'll be in production for a while?

And OSCORP - are you the owner of Toys2? How do you know what the stock is?

OSCORP
10-31-2007, 01:24 PM
lol no i explained above.(add to cart)

If you're in canada order away.If Jor-el sells out they would probably get a 2nd batch in at some point later on, supes i'm not so sure about.

9 supes 10 jor-els left.

Oh, I see - you added as many to your cart as possible - I thought you were telling us to buy as many as possible to sell them high later!

I got Superman #10, but I'll leave Jor-El for money. My income is pitiful and I have like a million things on pre-order. If I don't get a big cheque in Jan, I'll have to sell all of it. I'm gonna sell off the Clark Kent head and suit when I get this though. No interest. If I want CK I'll get the Medicom version.

So far I have on pre-order:
HT Superman $141 shipped
RAH Peter Parker $115 shipped
SS Darth Sidious/Palpatine $120 shipped
RAH Darth Maul $139 shipping together with
SS Old Man Obiwan $50 + $30 shipping for both
RAH Jango Fett $160 shipped

Ridiculous.

OSCORP
10-31-2007, 01:39 PM

Well, the Peter Parker is limited, the Superman is limited, the Obi Wan is already sold out most places, the Maul is limited... !

The manufacturers are smart - they realize that if the product isn't limited, many people (like me) will wait 6 months to a year to get them half price on ebay. That way they make it limited to force you to buy it now or else buy it later at double the price...

I hope it's not just me, but has anyone else noticed that the shield's shape is off. Instead of it being the Superman: The Movie shield, it's the generic looking one. I hope they see this soon.

Hey.... Thanks. If it wasn't for this thread I'd never have known about the Jor El figure. Ordered mine today. I have the Hot toys Superman and Clark already. I think the Hot Toys clark is better than the Medicom one. The clothes are much better and the sculpt is great. Thanks again.

I don't know if it's the same thing When it's going from Canada to the USA, but when it goes from USA to Canada, UPS is a total nightmare. They slam you with customs charges 100% of the time (vs. like 10% of the time with the post office) plus they charge an insane amount of fees on top of that - a fee for taking it across the border, a fee for filling out the customs forms, and then a fee for charging you their fees!!!

A $50 figure ends up costing $100 with all the fees. That's *not* an exaggeration.

You should check to see if any Americans have had these experiences with UPS coming from Canada. I never, ever buy anything shipped UPS anymore he cause of these experiences. Plus they leave packages on your doorstep and they even destroyed a package coming to me. My friend drive, a UPS truck, and even he told we he never buys anything shipped UPS across the border.

You really might want to switch to the Post office! It'll save you alot of hassles and alot of money, even if the rate is higher! And actually, the actual cost for one boxed figure to the USA (unless it's super heavy) by post office is about $12, not $14, and with tracking it's $20, and express is under $25. Dont know what toys2 charges though.

I bought the 2 Prison Break Hot Toys figures from Toysquare and shipping was a flat 24 dollars with UPS. And they came in record time. This is why I'm using them again for Superman and Jor-El. Yay!

You and me both, man. Especially now with the Russell Crowe Jor-El coming. Would have been great to have Reeve and Brando with Cavill and Crowe. Maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to come across one that won't cost an arm and leg, but until then I'll have to kick myself for not getting it in the first place. :slap

Really??? I hate you! J/k that was a great deal. I never checked completed listings for this but I usually see this listed at about $500

Raymond F.
03-04-2013, 11:03 PM
I just checked yeah there is none under 600 now! I think I'll hold onto it afterall, I might think about selling it at 600 as there are a few more deserving figures that could fund.

It was actually a year ago I remember now, just a little before Chris Reeves superman came out I guess people got the bug for him after superman came out. I bid and won at 200 then when I got it I dropped his head and there was a nose rub I tried to fix it and and ended up buggering up the whole head so I sold the outfit and body on eBay for a hundred and then won another one, this time loose, on eBay for another 200. So in actuality I guess the figure ended up costing me 300 because of my **** up.

I love that figure! I still remember exactly when I first found out about it. Back in the pre-internet, pre-toy magazine days of collecting, you often wouldn't know a figure was coming out until you saw it sitting on a store shelf (I really miss those days). With that Robin, I first spotted him in a Toys R Us weekend newspaper insert. I was absolutely nuts over his introduction in comics and his new suit, so seeing that his figure was coming out as part of the Returns line thrilled me to no end. I called Toys R Us just about every day until they finally got him in (again- this was WAY before internet store reports). Hopped in the car with my Dad (I was only 14 at the time) and headed up to get him (plus Catwoman since buying 2 figures meant a free Batman Returns poster).

Other than his flat-top haircut, I found that figure to be just about perfect back then... and I still do now. :)

I wish I could find one of these for a reasonable price. Between paying off my car and most of my credit card and having my car insurance recently drop substantially I could afford the eBay prices but I'm still a little too sane to pull the trigger. I don't think it's completely up to the Hot Toys standards of today but its pretty damn close (maybe like 90%) but it's a hell of a lot closer than the Routh Supes. I can live with my Reeve Supes with no Jor-el but it still feels incomplete.

Would love to see HT come back and do the black outfit one day.

Umm... Because there's a new Hot Toys Jor-El figure for the new movie and it reminded me how much I appreciate the old Hot Toys Jor-El from the old movie?

That good enough?:cuckoo: It is okay if folks talk about old HT releases that still hold up...

Agreed that HT has come a long way... But this one still holds up pretty well for being 6 years old now. :)

I just spent a ridiculous amount of money to buy this guy tonight. While there's definitely some self loathing for spending as much as I did, I'm extremely excited to get him. He's definitely my holy grail figure. I've regretted not buying him when he first came out for a long time and as the price keeps going up and he seems to be becoming more and more rare I decided I had to pull the trigger. Of course, HT will probably announce a 2.0 in the very near future at which point I'll really hate myself for buying this, but right now I'm pretty stoked to be getting him.

I think it's safe to say this is one of Hot Toys' best figures. As simple as it is, the fact that it was made six years ago and STILL holds its own with anything put out today, says alot.

Yea, it does still look pretty damn good considering it's age. It's going to be great to have him with the Reeve figure and also to have those two with the Crowe and Cavill figures when they come out.

Exactly! And that is what all of us "late buyers" are paying the extra for after all. When it was just a companion piece to the Routh Supes, I didn't want it at the lower price... and not a ton of other folks did either. But when the HT Reeve came along, it was almost like the Jor-El became a brand new piece for all of us- something we were now willing to fork twice his original cost for to pair him with '78 Supes.

So don't think of it as spending an inflated cost for an old figure... Think of it as spending the right amount for a limited edition release from the Reeve Superman line. ;)

That, I don't understand. I get not everyone loves SUPERMAN RETURNS, but I knew if they went out of their way to make a Jor El, a Reeve figure HAD to be coming down the line (it just took four years. No biggie.) When there's smoke, there's fire. As a fan of Superman, I had no hesitation picking this guy up when he first came out.

Ah... but it wasn't necessarily so at the time. The figure is undeniably based on his "cameo" in Superman Returns, and came out with what was then a current release film. There was no reason to definitively think at the time that a Reeve figure was coming, since the Jor-El was specifically altered to match the Superman Returns version of Superman. Plus- At the time, the Reeve version of Superman seemed to be a "holy grail" type license, with almost no product out specifically based on his likeness (and not just a "generic" Superman). Just because a Brando Jor-El from Returns was released didn't make me think that they somehow had cut through the legal tape to get Reeve... Definitely not enough to put the money down for him in the slim hope that they had. It didn't make sense at the time to have just Jor-El since I didn't want a Routh Superman sitting next to him.

I think when Jor-El came out I had just started collecting and wasn't really familiar with HT. Pretty sure I looked at it and thought the price was ridiculous and said there was no way I'd spend that much money on this stuff. My how times have changed.... :lol The Reeve figure was my first HT figure and I almost didn't buy that because of the price. Also, I thought since I had the DC Direct Reeve statue and the Mattel figure that I didn't need another Reeve figure, but I eventually caved and HT has had me hook, line and sinker ever since.

Yeah I would have picked one up if they did.
Wasn’t impressed with the returns version at the time but it looks ok next to the new/old supes.
They may rerelease this and tweak it.
Not the first time they’ve done it.

A nice extra would be the crystal console with green crystal and a light up feature. You could have a molecule chamber and voice chips.Lots of optipns and would need to be special to do it justice.

It's funny, i bought this guy years ago on the board for $200, tried to sell it months later for $150 and NO ONE wanted it. I still have it, on display now with his son. I do hope HT makes a proper "SUPERMAN The Movie" version.

I'd be okay it they made a blacksuited version, or updated one with the baby rocket- but only if they made Zod and Lex first. I'm still flabergasted we got Jor El from SR, where he was literally only a face on a crystal, but never got Spacey Lex.

Donít like the sound of that.
Then again if "El" is the surname then it makes sense to shorten it to kal or jor.

Still donít feel right though.

He likes to work with russell crowe and remakes old films badly, especially his own.
