Amazing! That was our first exclamation (minus the profanity) after seeing the newly released photos of Hot Toys’ Superman 1/6th scale figure based on the likeness of Christopher Reeve. In recent years, Hot Toys has shown a tremendous aptitude for making life-like 1/6th scale figures of our favorite heroes and villains of film. From perfect costuming to intricate paintwork and sculpting, these collectibles have become the pinnacle of high-end toy collecting. Other companies have licensed the likeness of Christopher Reeve in recent months, and have even released their own movie-versions of the Man of Steel, but regardless of how well done those have been – this is the definitive version. No question.
Amid very high anticipation, we are proud to present the 1/6th scale Superman Collectible Figure from the classic superhero movie Superman in 1978.
We are proud to present the great collectible figure of this brave and kind-hearted hero with a strong sense of justice, morality and righteousness to our fans, which is a must-have item to fulfill everyone’s dream in childhood! You’ll believe a man can fly!
We’d like to share with our fans that a portion of this collectible figure’s sales benefits will be donated to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation by Hot Toys Limited. The Reeve Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.
We hope that we can contribute to the foundation and the injured through the enjoyment of collectible figures.
