Was never really happy with any of my previous versions, and the DCD New Krypton head was OK, because it was the closest we had to a Reeve likeness, but that is now an antique, a B.G. (Before Glassman) head,LOL
I saw the headcast Glassman did by shrinking the Hot toys version and decided I´d give Mr Reeve a fresh, renewed try, and put a lot of effort to it. Now I´m happy with it, cause the casted head is amazing, and needed a well crafted body to match. After many tryouts, I decided that the Mattel Superman from the Batman 2 pack had the perfect looking boots, just needed some sculpt. I used DCUC Blue lantern Flash body to minimize paint rub on the shoulder area and because of his slimer build. That body, with the 2 pack supes lower arms and legs gives the figure a slicker, taller look, very close to Mr Reeve´s body proportions. So, I used fixit sculpt to cover muscle definition on his ribs, biceps and thighs. Then I sculpted belt and upper section of the boots. I also did some sanding on his abs.
After that, came the paints. I did a lot of experiments with several tones of blues to get the right color. I think I got pretty close, after a series of airbrushed first coat, wahes and drybrushes. Used scartlet red for boots and underwear, gloss varnish for boots and belt and a vynil decal for the "S". I am sorry about the cape, it was kinda rushed, and needs some more work, but I was eager to finish him and share it with you. Cape is cloth with wires for poseability. I am still experimenting and cape will be improved on version 5 soon.
Hope you like him
*Update:Repainted eyes, gave him a bigger chest logo and another cape, which my sister sewn. Big thanks to her.
