Toy Series:DC Direct

Base Figure:dc reactivated superman dc direct new krypton superman
Height:6.00 inches
Well, almost everybody´s done this, using mostly DCUC classics as a base. I used DC direct reactivated Supes and of course, the arch-known chris reeve-like head from the New Krypton supes.
Just a switch of heads (and neck pegs, also), and well, it fits PERFECTLY on this bod. I know it is more bulky and muscular than Mr. Reeve, but I must admit that so far, I am not skilled enough to fix that. On the other hand, the figure´s height ( specially on the legs), uniform color, cape length, and even the shape of the "S" resembles the iconic portrayal of the man of steel Reeve did in 1978. It is a simple one, but it filled my heart with joy!!!!

YEP! that is definitely the winning combination of body and head. I put the "Reeves' head" on public enemies Supes body (that btw it is the same disproportionate DCUC body that almost every freaking figure has) and looked retarded.

I just realised what chris reeve supes is doing to that superman returns figure -- thats a cool joke ! - regards to the skin tone matching the neck thing - don't worry too much man I have the same problem , you can filter it by applying watered down sepia tone from Citadel from games workshops , its a close as you can get without repainting the head & neck totally , I know what you mean by fills your heart with joy when you completed him - because it completes your childhood.

I'm going to do the same thing someday, but I see that the head needs a reapaint, because the skintones are different.

you are right about the skin tones. I´ll correct that someday... Ringo.
