Custom #:37240  
Name:Tom Welling as Superman
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Superman
Creator:matthancock  
Date Added:February 29, 2012
Base Figure:DC Direct Blackest Night Superman & DC Direct Tom Welling head
Height:6.50 inches
Completion Time:15.00 hours
Articulation:16 points
A labor of love for a new purchaser (filter said to change the word) of mine. Had to completely resculpt the neck to make it compatable with the head. Sculpted a new chest, boot designs, belt, and finally the "S" symbol. The Superman Returns "S" is VERY difficult to sculpt. In the past, I've just chickened out and gone with a flat "S" rather than the contoured one, but this time, I went for it and it paid off nicely. Also painted the "S" on the cape which was tricky because of the cape folds, vut again, it worked out.

I do want to point out that this is a terrific base figure and should be used more often. I know I will be using it VERY soon...Chris Reeve and Henry Cavill figures! Thanks so much for looking!

I've found a great substitute for sculpting a Superman Returns shield. There was a figure from that line that was on a 7 inch scale. He had some sort of flying gyroscope action that worked with a pull string. The tab on the end is a perfectly sculpted emblem. FTW

I used that one a long time ago, but felt that pull-string shield to be too small. Those 7 inch Superman Returns figures were pretty cool for their time though and I wish I still had one. I didn't texturize this suit so I didn't need a textured shield AND I really wanted to try to sculpt it myself. Thanks for dropping in!

Damn, excellent job. I'm going to start working on a Chris Reeve version when I get this base. Looking forward to your next one brother.
