First of all, let me give a shout out to Asrul and Shaun for the heads up. Finally them execs at Hot Toys decided to listen to us fans by giving us a teaser poster for the highly anticipated Christopher Reeve Superman! How cool is that? Wow, God knows how long I've been waiting for this. For the record I missed the chance to snag the 2-in-1 Brandon Routh ver. a couple of years back but deep in my heart I was always hopeful that one day HT's gonna do the 'definitive' Supes...and they didn't disappoint! Phew, after so many false alarms (the latest one being Bruce Lee!), it's a relief to see Mr Reeve coming to us this winter (err...that's sometime towards end of the year for us non-four seasoned countries). I can't stress enough how the original Supes movies greatly influence me when I was a kid (heck, am watching Superman II now while typing this entry...LOL!). Just imagine, when HT gets the license for the 2nd movie, we'd get General Zod and gang too.....*DROOL*
In today's frail economy, one must certainly be forced to choose to purchase only the essentials to stay within the constraints of one's budget. I can tell ya', for the rest of 2010, it's just gonna be food for the family AND definitely THIS figure!
We're finally getting him (albeit a 1/6th permutation that is!) on our shelves soon. This is by far the most important 1/6th collectible of a Supes' fan collection aka the pinnacle of one's devotion to the classic movie.....man, the wait's killin' me!
