Geek Gifts: Hot Toys Christopher Reeve SUPERMAN 12-Inch Figure

     May 27, 2011

While it’s been awhile since we’ve done a Geek Gifts, when I saw the Christopher Reeve Superman 12-inch figure by Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles, I knew we had to bring it back.  According to the press release, “the movie-accurate Superman collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Christopher Reeve as The Man of Steel, highlighting the authentic head sculpt, movie-accurate costume and detailed light-up figure stage imitating the Fortress of Solitude.”

As you can tell by the images, the figure looks amazing.  Hit the jump for a lot more info on the figure.

According to Sideshow:

Hot Toys Limited will be donating a portion of this collectible figure’s sales to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The Reeve Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. Hot Toy’s hopes to contribute to the foundation and the injured through the enjoyment of collectible figures.  For more about the organization, please visit:
