Sideshow’s Heroically Definitive Superman Premium Format Figure

The Sideshow Collectibles Superman Premium Format Figure

For the Man of Steel’s discerning throng of obsessives, the Sideshow Collectibles Superman Premium Format Figure is an essential acquisition. For more casual enthusiasts, Sideshow’s archetypal depiction of the venerable pillar of the DC Comics universe will likely prove to be equally compelling.

Sideshow’s Superman Premium Format Figure is an impressive follow-up to the company’s similarly remarkable statue (released earlier in the year). Like the manifestation of his fellow Justice Leaguer, the Superman sculpture boasts truly striking proportions. With the 19.5 inch figure perched atop its custom 8 inch base (formed to resemble the icy confines of the Fortress of Solitude), the immense piece rises to well over 2 feet in height.

Sideshow’s creative team has fully exploited the figure’s grand dimensions to instill the company’s trademark level of authentic detail. The head sculpt features a portrait that’s warmly familiar and clearly inspired by the character’s early comic book appearance. A small number of the statues that were originally available at retail shipped with an additional, Sideshow Exclusive head sculpt complete with “heat vision eyes” that could be swapped out to vary the display.

Superman’s costume has been comprehensively recreated in its classic form. The blue fabric body suit features superlative fabrication and precise stitching. It is also evident that care has been taken to tightly adjust the fit in order to accentuate the figure’s underlying musculature. The crimson cape draped from Superman’s neck is particularly well done. Like much of the statue it is cast in polystone, yet the sculpted folds and realistically shaded finish give it the convincing appearance of a thick, flowing textile.

If asked to fill a time capsule with the epitomes of contemporary popular fiction, the Sideshow Collectibles Superman Premium Format Figure would make for a prime addition. Sideshow has succeeded in capturing the Man of Steel’s legacy in a jaw-dropping mixed format statue that masterfully exudes the grandeur and fabulous power of the legendary comic book champion. The roughly $400 USD figure stands as another prototypical depiction of one of the “DC Trinity’s” core members that’s worthy of being the centerpiece of every superhero fan’s collection.
