2009 SDCC Day 1: 'Superman II' General Zod 12" Figure From Mattel

by Jay Cochran
July 24, 2009
It appears Mattel plans to make DC collector knell before Zod with this very nice looking 12" figure based on the 'Sumerman II' movie character General Zod who was played by actor Terence Stamp. He appears to come with a melted shotgun which he stole from a hick cop in the classic movie. Stay tuned later today at 11:00 AM PT for coverage of the Mattel and DC Comics: A Heroic Partnership panel here at Comic-Con for more details and information on this and other DC releated products coming from Mattel.

Yep I knew they were black

Some guy said he saw red on the outfit in the movie, I think he was huffing his car's exhaust pipe at the time.

From my POV the suit was allways black I never seen a hint of any other color in it

But to me it looks cool on the figure since he is the very first General Zod figure I have ever seen

The suits are all black, if you google general zod and or superman 2 they even show a blue color on the glossy trim which originates from the sky. If there is any red it's from set lighting not the suit itself. I could easily say I saw Elvis Presley at my local airport. Claims without pictures doesn't do any good.

I have seen it in both colors, for sure the all black and at times in the film redish. Either way this line is going to die fast if these are 70 bucks as stated by some posters.

I have seen some of the original phantom zone criminal costumes on display in Metropolis Illinois. The colors of the Zod "doll" costume are correct. And by the way, it looks just like a Tonner doll.

Did you not see the post saying this discussion is OVER?

WTF?

Who said that?

Did you not see the post saying this discussion is OVER? Get a clue. What could you possibly get from seeing it in person?

Seriously though seeing the suit in person probably gives someone an, ahem, unique perspective. Oftentimes fans and collectors go apenuts over what they think is wrong and it turns out they're wrong. Happens with Sideshow stuff all the time. You think they forgot something then you go to the source material and its dead on.

The Superman Museum in Metropolis Illinois has actual costumes from the Superman movies and shows. It's a very cool place to visit. It's been years since I visited the museum. I hope by now they have some cool Alex Ross prints for show. It needed a gallery badly.

If they make these in the 6-inch scale, I'll be all over 'em.

They have the actual movie costumes?
