Saw this over at Statue Forum.
I for one can not wait to see this and hope that DCD does an excellent job on capturing the essence of Chris' portrayal of Superman.

Well, their Superman vs. Darkseid and Superman vs. Wonder Woman statue look great so far. Their Batman PF was decent but had many QC issues just like the Batman bust. If they can straighten out their QC issues, half their problems would disappear.

if they got the likeness rights to make a statue, can other stuff be far off? 1/4th, 1/6th stuff?

Hopefully Andy can practice his likeness on a 1/6 Head and offer it up here first. :D

Correction. Their Superman vs. Wonder Woman is phenomenal. Their Superman vs. Darkseid looks like crap.

It says great things for the likeness rights which means the Son has given permission. That means that it could seap to either DCD 1/6 or if we are lucky even Hot Toys figures.

god, i hate to see a chris reeve sculpt on that horrible DC 13 inch body.

hopefuly warner bros and the reeve estate know the goldmine they have on their hands. high quality chris reeve and superman the movie merchandise would sell big time. let's hope they loved the hot toys jor-el figure and want to add his son to that collection.

And how tall was Chris? 6'6"?

So that's 78 inches, right? 78/6 = 13". Well, what do you know, this 13" DC Figure will actually be to scale. :D

And if Andy does the sculpt, it will not only be to scale, but will look great and could actually be the Only good 1/6 CR Supes we'll see done to scale. Imagine that.

they say reeve was 6'4", but i have my doubts. i think he was closer to 6 foot.(all hollywood actors inflate their height)

on the howard stern show, they brought one of the screen used suits in and all the guys tried it on. howard is 6'5" and much skinner than reeve and the suit was way too small for him.

one of howard's producers, a guy named KC tried it on and it fit perfectly, and he's about 6 foot tall.

regardless of how tall chris reeve really was, a superman figure of him on that DC body will look horrible. he was never that muscular.

Are you trying to actually say Chris was only 6ft tall? :lol

Based on a Howard Stern broadcast? :rotfl

I think you need to check your facts. I doubt you even know what the casting requirements were for this Film.

He was 6' 4" and wore Boots which made him closer to 6' 5/6" in the Film.

i've had my doubts he was ever 6'4", based on numerous things, mostly seeing him stand next to margot kidder, and those superman boots he wore had nothing to make him taller. they had flat soles, it would be like he was barefoot.

hollywood people all lie about their height. clint eastwood is supposed to be 6'4" and schwarzenegger is supposed to be 6'2", but i saws them together and they were the same height. and rumor is that arnold is only 6 foot.

if you saw the video of howard stern putitng on the superman suit, you'd believe me that a guy who was 6'4 would never fit into that suit.

Chris' Dad was 6' 4", His brother was 6'4"

He described himself as a tad over 6' 3". Most everyone who knows or have met him say he is 6' 3" or "6 4"

Hackman is close to 6" 2"

I've been looking forward to a Christopher Reeve Superman statue for so very long. I've enjoyed DCD statues. I have two Batman Begins ones and the Superman Returns maquette, all three were purchased for a quarter of their suggested retail price. Their standards perhaps aren't quite up to the level of Gentle Giant or Sideshow, but they seem to get better as time goes on.

And yes, Christopher Reeve was 6'4, give or take a few centimeters. Brandon Routh was I believe 6'3 and 3/4". Tom Welling is 6'3. Dean Cain is about 5'11. Yeah...you kind of need to be at least about 6'2 or 6'3 to be Superman, if you ask me. ;) Of course Dean's Superman was in the worst incarnation of the character ever, but he didn't have the physique of Superman, although he was a fine Clark Kent for the post Byrne-era.

I'm hoping they use this pose for the Reeve statue.

I sure hope they do a great job with this, it would certainly be a big hit if done right.
Personally speaking I like the classic standing pose rather than one with him mid flight.
I just like museum poses, they look more classy and elegant imo.

I think some writing this statue off based on one image should wait for better images or to see it in person before cementing your opinion of it. The likeness is definitel there. The chin, the nose, the jaw, it's 100% Reeve. The body looks like Reeve in Superman 3, which was the biggest he ever was in a Superman film.

This isn't the best quality image, but it's definitely the one they used for this statue. IMHO, the statue looks very close to the pose.

Looks more like a stylzed/comic version of Reeve then a realistic portrayal. That might have been their intent, but to me its a missed opportunity as most would probably prefer a spot-on likeness compared to this.

Darklord Dave
09-15-2008, 12:58 PM
I'll get it but this initial image is disappointing. I'd agree that neither the likeness nor the body are exactly right.

If I didn't know it was supposed to be Reeve, I'd think it was just another generic Superman.

How does it not look like Reeve? The nose, the chin, the jaw, the neck, etc. - it looks like Reeve without a doubt. Is it perfect? Probably not, but the likeness is there. I think the paint may be a bit warm, but that could also just be the image.

Reeve was the perfect Superman, so a generic Superman will look at least a little like Reeve. I think where Reeve really comes out in likenesses is the eyes, and they haven't been able to capture that here.

It's true that Reeve had the perfect Curt Swan face. While his eyes are certainly the windows into his persona, the rest of the likeness seems spot on to me. Eyes are the hardest thing to capture, I would estimate, so a fair likeness as far as his eyes are concerned is good enough for me. If this were a 1:1 or 1:2 bust or statue, I would expect the eyes to be as close to perfect as possible, but for a 12.5 inch statue, this'll do just fine. :)

It's amazing the first official Reeve statue and people are saying no to it.


That's cause it sucks.

That bust really doesn't look like Reeve, IMO. The face is too long, as well as the nose.

:confused: Looks pretty damn close to me... and the pic looks like it was taken at a downward angle.

The nose is too enlongated and the space between his nose and mouth is too wide, giving him an "ape" kind thing going on.

Point for this statue by DCD - beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I must be missing something... DCD is DC Comics right? and if so they don't know what Christopher Reeve looks like?

Some more pics from DCD. They look much better and more accurate than the amped up colorful first image.

Even at the early stage it looks a hell of a lot more like Reeve than the DCD, that Reeve looks special as in special school

Now as arrogant as this sounds... I think my own 1:6 sculpt is better than this one and that's why I couldn't justisify getting this Statue! I was pumped for it when it was announced, but left disappointed!

Mine one is just my 2nd attempt at sculpting and 2nd attempt at Reeve's likeness. :lol 2 for 2!!! But my point is, as flawed as my amature sculpted is... DCD professional statue isn't a great deal better in my opinion.

I wouldn't say it's being arrogant, it's not a spot on likeness but you can definetly tell who it's meant to be and it is much, much better than DCD's

Allright BobbyC! Maybe I could afford to get a copy or commission of it from you someday? Let me know. It looks awesome in your picture, and it's not complete. I can only imagine how great it will be when it's finished! Keep me updated on it. Thanks! :D

I think I can see Reeve a little bit more in that shot, but it's still not close enough for me. The body sculpt looks really good though. I'm happy with my Superman Forever statue, even though it isn't based off a movie.

I can see Reeve, but I hope that cape is attached incorrectly - otherwise that's a big problem.

Actually it looks like the chest was painted incorrectly. I think I can see a sculpted line on the chest higher than where the suit stops. It could be his collar bones, but I don't think so.

Passing resemblance at best. I only hope this leads to HT being able to make a 1/6 figure.
