Superman (Henry Cavill 2.0) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:43878  
Name:Superman (Henry Cavill 2.0)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Movie Masters
Creator:matthancock  
Date Added:October 28, 2012
Base Figure:ML Constrictor
Height:6.00 inches
Completion Time:40.00 hours
Articulation:31 points
After two months of work, Henry Cavill 2.0 is completed. Used a ML Constrictor as a base so the joints have absolutely NO rub as they are the exact same color as the paints I used for the suit! I basically sculpted the entire surface of the suit and textured it with my ball stylus. Everything has texture, even the gold parts of the belt and even the belt buckle itself.

The head was a third attempt to sculpt one from scratch. Cavill has a difficult likeness to capture, but this is pretty close in my opinion. The photos' filter is made to look like the footage from Comic Con. With no touch ups, the suit color is navy, the reds are normal bright, and the "yellow" parts are gold.

On the cape, I went with a cloth one but sculpted the area where the cape attaches to the shoulders. It's something I've seen GeekSummit do with good results and to be more accurate.

He's completely articulated and the sculpt was done in a way that doesn't restrict movement at all. He has roughly 31 POA. It's probably the best figure I've ever done while still retaining all the original articulation! Thanks for looking and comments are welcome!

And yes, he will be on eBay, very soon, as late as this afternoon :)

*** EDIT: I added a non-filtered pic so you can see the true colors

Awesome!

Thanks guys - really appreciate the kind words! As for the base figure, I wanted this to fit in with the Movie Masters line from Mattel. DCUC would have been way to tall and buff. This is the perfect height and build for Movie Masters

...but just so ya know, I AM working on a Cavill using one of the wrestling figures. He's DC Direct scale and is more accurate than this one

Monumental task here! Great work, especially sculpting a head from scratch and all those intricate details on the suit! Can hardly wait for the movie! The only thing that I don't understand is why they insist on parting Superman's hair different and the spit curl? Makes no sense to me, that has always been something that made him recognizable as the icon S symbol on his chest
