This week's TNI Cool Custom, is of Movie Masters 6" Christopher Reeve Superman figure with custom light up Fortress of Solitude stand. This figure was done by Mikecondello. Here is how Mikecondello describes the making of it:
"This figure has been 15 years in the making. I always wanted a chris reeve superman since the day I first watched superman the movie. It became a labor of love when I finally started it after DC direct released the New Krypton figure. I wanted to find just the right sized body and scale. I wanted as movie accurate as possible. I obsessed about it. I sculpted the boots, gave the head a brand new paint job. Gave the body a custom paint job, sculpted the belt as well. Used and Sculpted the cape from a DCUC figure. whole figure is sealed to retain as much articulation as possible. I still think I could do better but I hope that you guys like this as much as I do. Because its my favorite figure I have ever made. Going to make another one and put it up to bid
Head: DC Direct New Krypton superman
body: WWE mattel legends Terry Funk
boots and belt: Sculpted with avis sculpt
Cape: DCUC superman"
