Here we go guys!!! My 100th Posted figure on the Realm. Here's to 1000's more!!!!!
Here is Henry Cavill as The Man of Steel. Once I saw the first shot of the costume I knew it couldn't be long before I tried to crack this one into plastic form. We never saw much more past the initial photo but it looks like he's turning japanese I think he's turning Japanese I really think so…. Along with the revamp of the Dc Universe it looks like the new movie Supes will be going commando as is deemed necessary by the great Jim Lee.
The head is from a Last Son of Krypton Superman with the spit curl knocked off and replaced with an Elvis styler boufant… that's ok, I'm from Memphis and have always drawn parallels.. but anyway. The boot tops are smoothed over to fill the gaps in the slight relief there, the entire belt zone has been filled in with Apoxie and then the new pointless belt sculpted over (though I'm still not sure how that's going to go, but I've seen some examples. I have sculpted these ports to semi conceal the entry points of the cape as seen in the first peak photo as well as a hand cut "movie accurate" emblem that is primered along with the rest of the figure before painting.
All in all I was happy to get this one built. I hadn't seen another yet and probably for the same reasons it took me a month to get started. But somebody's got to do it first.
I am proud to present to you Revisionist Toymaker's 100th custom figure here on the Realm.
