Hot Toys Superman III Evil Superman head sideThat’s easily my favorite part of the movie, but it’s interesting to see HT give that some attention as opposed to what would have likely been a stronger seller in a General Zod from “Superman II.”

Guess it was more a matter of what was cheaper to do as Zod’s outfit would require significantly more work for an exclusive.

Here’s Hot Toys’ write-up:

Originally a brave and kindhearted hero with a strong sense of justice, morality and righteousness due to the exposure to synthetic kryptonite in Superman III the movie, Superman has descended into darkness and becomes an evil version of Superman. The showdown between him and Clark Kent at the junkyard is a critical part of the film.

Hot Toys is happy to present the 1/6th scale Superman (Evil Version) Collectible Figure from Superman III as one of the 2013 Toy Fairs Exclusive items. This collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Christopher Reeve in the movie, highlighting the detailed head sculpt, movie-accurate costume and specially-designed figure stage.

Paying tribute to Christopher Reeve, we are pleased to support the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and their mission to advance research into spinal cord injury and improve quality of life for people living with paralysis.
