The upcoming Christopher Reeve Superman figure from Hot Toys is simply fucking incredible. IN-CREH-DIH-BULL. I mean, look at this likeness:

I know, right? This is a shot of the prototype, but I've seen other figures this company's put out and they are just as good in the released versions so have no fear. Here are the specs, as per the press release:

- Authentic and detailed fully realized likeness of Christopher Reeve as Superman in the Superman movie

- Real-like facial expression with detailed wrinkles and gesture

- Detailed hair sculpture

- Approximately 30 cm tall

- Newly sculpted muscular body with over 30 points of articulation with extra forceful upper body as in neck and chest

- Three (3) pairs of interchangeable palms including:
One (1) pair of relaxed palms
One (1) pair of fists
One (1) pair of palms for fighting

- Each piece of head sculpt is specially hand-painted

Costume :

- One (1) set of costume in Superman style including one-piece blue costume with Superman logo in chest, yellow belt, red triangular-shaped pants and red cape

- One (1) pair of red boots


- Specially-made figure stage imitating the Fortress of Solitude

- Figure stand with Superman nameplate and the movie logo

- Head Sculpted by Arnie Kim

- Head Painted by JC.HONG

- Head Art Directed by YULLI

- Body Sculpted by Joseph Tsang

**Limited Edition Green Kryptonite with metal chain will be offered to Hot Toys’ special channels

A portion of this collectible figure’s sales benefits will be donated to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation by Hot Toys Limited.

Oh, I so totally want one of these, but the predicted $200-$300 price tag is just too rich for my blood. If you can afford one, more power to you. Go here for a gallery of shots of this thing that may just make you faint from geeking-out.
