I thought it would be fun to share our top 5 action figures of our favorite heroes. Pick any hero and share your top 5. May give some of us ideas on what to add to our wish lists. I’m not including figures I don’t have or wish I had. I’ll start the thread with Superman:
Mezco Classic Superman.
Everything about this just oozes quality. The fabric outfit may not be for everyone, but for me, it just feels great in hand. The face sculpt is spot on, and great articulation too.
DC Essentials Superman.
Not many comic book versions of Superman out there with this kind of articulation. Looks great too; just wish that S was sculpted.
DC Designer Series Lee Bermejo Superman.
Bermejo…need I say more? They did a great job of translating his art to figure form. Some top notch paint apps on this one.
Sideshow 1/6 Scale Superman.
Hesitated for a long time on this one. He looked to “skinny” to me in pics. He is a sight to behold in hand, though.
DC Universe Justice League Superman.
This almost didn’t make my top 5, because it’s almost impossible to keep upright without a stand. It looks fabulous though…like he jumped off the screen and into my display cabinet.
Honorable mentions to:
2003 DC Direct Superman with 20 points of articulation. For a long time, I thought of this as the best generic Superman. Supplanted by the Essentials.
DC Collectibles New 52 Superman (from the Trinity War set).
The metallic blue color is exactly how I think the New 52 suit should be, and it looks great here.
Hope everyone chimes in with their own lists!
