Sideshow Collectibles Shows Off Its Sixth Scale Superman, Complete With Classic Trunks
Sideshow Collectibles' sixth scale Batman figure is about to get some Kryptonian company. A sixth scale version of Superman is now available for preorder with an estimated January 2015 delivery date -- complete with the character's classic red trunks in tow.
Designed to embody 75 years of Superman's recognizable-as-your-own-face iconography in comics and other media, the 12" tall figure comes with both free-flowing and poseable fabric capes plus seven interchangeable hands -- one of which that gives my action figure favorite thumbs up pose. The figure will also come with three portrait expressions that collectors can swap between for Supes' heroic, determined and serious heat vision faces. To pull off heroic flight poses (or just normal standing poses), collectors need only turn to the figure's included base and stand, which is decorated in the style of the Man of Steel's Fortress of Solitude. Fans who opt for Sideshow's exclusive version of the figure can even score a bonus Metallo head with an articulated jaw that Superman can palm like a basketball with an extra hand attachment.
