Christopher Reeve As Superman Statue
DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2008.09.15
Sculpted by Karen Palinko

It’s the quintessential Man of Steel!

One of the most fondly remembered depictions of Superman is now available as a commemorative statue exclusively from DC Direct. Christopher Reeve strikes an iconic pose from the classic 1978 feature film Superman – the movie that made the world believe “a man could fly” and turned the actor into a star.

Standing atop an S-shield base, the Christopher Reeve as Superman Statue is a limited-edition, hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statue measuring approximately 12.50” tall x 5.5” wide x 3.75” deep. (The base measures approximately .75” high x 6.5” diameter.)
The statue includes a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity and is packaged
in a 4-color box. Manufactured to order.

Advanced-solicited; on sale May 27, 2009 * Statue * $195 US

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this item will be donated to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

i think the statue looks great but the eye coloring is off and plus... where is the "S" sign on the back of the cape at? they are missing that one main piece. it's not original if that is missing... if DC comics can fix that problem they can count me on the waiting list of that statue

The paint app on the face has a weird kind of airbrush look to it. For the price though it doesn't matter b/c I don't have pockets deep enough.

I think the likeness is there, it's just the paint throwing it off. It's mostly the eyes. Give it some new paint and I think it'd be almost dead on. Regardless, this still has to be in my collection.

Nice try but send the sculptors back in the studio for one more go around on the likeness. Its a nice statue...the price is a little high. But the only real problem is the likeness isn't that great. It looks like a Chris Reeve stand in instead of Reeve himself.

I dont really thing it captured the likeliness of Christopher Reeve. perhaps more detailed paint on the eyes would help. Now that a Chris Reeves Superman Statue is made, the next sstep is for a Movie Superman figure and then bring on Michael Keaton Batman!!

I like it but I think if this were done in plastic we could get his image done much better
