Base Figure:Marvel Icons Human Torch
Height:12.00 inches
Completion Time:200.00 hours
In December, a customer asked me to sculpt a 1/6 scale Henry Cavill MAN OF STEEL statue. This was right after I posted my first Henry Cavill Superman figure here and at SuperHeroHype. At the time, the only pics of the suit were the dark set pic at the bank vault and the spy pics from the set. I used a Marvel Icons Human Torch figure and literally sculpted over the entire surface after I immobilized the joints. The entire suit was textured after I sculpted it with a Super Sculpey and Apoxie Sculpt. I've done over 300 custom figures and this is by far the BEST one I've ever done...and the most challenging. The cape is sewn cloth.

Another requirement for the statue is that it would hover/float above the custom base I made. The base is a 3 inch tall wooden pentagon that is topped with a ceramic sculpted "S". The wooden pentagon is a rich blue and the "S" is burnished red and gold. As for the method for floating the statue, it's not something I am allowed to reveal out of respect for my buyer who is a working magician. I can say that there are no wires, no magnets. The statue actually hovers three inches above the base and the overall effect is beautiful. If you think you know the method, please don't post it here or speculate about it publicly. It's very gratifying to complete something after 6 months of work and to actually pull off the intended ideas.

I'll be starting on the bank vault scene statue within the next few weeks, also in 1/6 scale and with the recently released pics of the suit from the Licensing Expo, the next statue will be much more accurate. Thanks for looking guys, this was a labor of love and I'm very proud of how it turned out!

I honestly didn't know if I would like the new suit, but the Kryptonian flare to it is very cool! I love your statue/model-like take on him! It is SUPER!! I can hardly wait for the movie

Very cool Custom!! Love the suit detail. Question..is his left hand shorter than the right one??
matthancock - Friday, June 15, 2012
Hey thanks for the kind words! The left hand is not shorter than the right. It's just that the left is a tightly closed fist while the right is fully open. It's just a perspective thing.

That's a spectacular piece of art. There's so much detail and the colours do look spot-on for the pictures released so far.
