Let's begin with a back story! (Optional read)
Once a year I was allowed a present for christmas under $10 (I know; we were poor). Until I was the age of 14. I bargained. No present for one year, and next year a $20 present. I went one Christmas without a present intent with one figure in mind!
DC SUPER HEROES STEEL! (3 months later my cousins thought it'd be cute to bathe him then put him in a sauna...the microwave)
I re bought him last year used. He was broken. Left arm in fact. Completely broken off the peg. S piece was off the chest as well (idk how). I did some light work on it.
My aunt in the Philippines was a huge superman fan. She got me into dc with my very first comic series! Death of superman. Doomsday. In this story line 4 people step up to the mantle after our brave...[See More]
The first thing I want to say about this figure is WOW! This figure is one of the best in my collection. Thsi figure has all the basic DC Universe joints. His schulpt is great.

The rivets and armor plates look great.
-He has a rubbery belt with two "boxes" on either side. They have flexible ribbed hoses that connect to the top-side of the boots. Is this his flight-system? I don't remember Steel ever wearing this belt, but then again I've only seen him a few times in comics so what do I know :} I think he would look better without it though.
-The left forearm has that big manacle-thing he...[See More]
