Next up in our week of DC galleries is S.H. Figuarts Superman from the Justice League series. Supes comes packed with an extra head, 3 sets of hands and a fabric wired cape. Paint application on the suit uses a metallic sheen and the face uses digital printing for the fine details. Sculpt overall is solid with articulation hitting all the major points. The head can sit on the neck a bit weird unless you focus your posing, but once nailed is just fine. The wired cape is one of the better ones in recent memory, the fabric used and wiring make for fairly easy dynamic posing that hangs right. The primary head is really sharp. None of the Cavill head sculpts from any brand fully nail the look, but this one from most angles gets it. The heat vision version is good except for the paint used on the mouth, it’s way too dark and just looks off, like he was eating black licorice all day.
Bottom line, it’s a really sharp DCEU Superman, one I’m keeping in rotation for now as primary. Check out Mr. Kent and the rest of the JL so far after the break courtesy of Tamashii Nations and Bluefin Brands! He’s out now at retailers in Japan and the US.
