I saw Ringomendoza and Kent32’s superman returns customs; I really liked them, more than I liked the movie. I had know idea what a ‘gimmick figure’ was, until I found one at a thrift store for a two bucks. It was bulbous and had a string that made it shake for some reason. So here is my attempt making a figure that should have been made by mattel. Mixed and matched the pieces then painted using citadel paints.

Body, arms, and legs: hourman
Lower legs: superman returns (below knees for the boots)
S-shield: superman returns (was attached to the string.)
Head: Superman returns
Cape: superman returns

Super happy with how this turned out. It has inspired me to do some other superman movie customs.

I agree, I think a movie master head sculpt would be more accurate than what I used. Still happy with it however.. thanks for the look

Very nice work here! Mattel really should've made Movie Masters Superman Returns figure back then.
