NERDSWAG: Sideshow Collectibles’ Man of Steel
Sideshow Collectibles’ Superman figure brings the reel steel
Having an ideal to strive toward is important, especially if that ideal wears a red cape and can fly. Yes, you could do a lot worse than trying to model yourself after Superman, him being the non-human pillar of humanity and all. Truth, Justice, and The American Way (That’s important this time of year). What’ll help you is to have something upon which to focus your attempts to better yourself, a beacon for your journey into a brighter tomorrow. Luckily for you, Sideshow Collectibles has just the S you’re looking for: the Man of Steel Superman Premium Format Figure.
This beauty may as well be the real thing; it’s a 1:4 scale model standing 21.5″ tall depicting Superman, in a typically-heroic pose, cape adrift, presumably contemplating his next locomotive-power move. It’s been carefully sculpted to look exactly like Man of Steel actor, Henry Cavill, and displays his new, distinct blue-and-red Kryptonian suit. You’ll feel like Brainiac, having shrunk the real Man of Tomorrow simply for your own display amusement.
The figure doesn’t ship until March of 2014, so you have plenty of time to pre-order, but if you enter our contest, you can get the chance to win a statue of your very own! All you have to do is enter, then head to our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages to give yourself extra entries, which will be like getting a boost of yellow sunlight before the long flight to winning. You have to enter by Weds, June 10th, 2013, though, or you’ll be in Kryptonite city.
