Hot Toys Announces 1/6th scale Superman (Evil Version) Collectible Figure
July 8, 2013

This week Hot Toys have been announcing their Toy Fair Exclusive figures:

Originally a brave and kind-hearted hero with a strong sense of justice, morality and righteousness due to the exposure to synthetic kryptonite in Superman III the movie, Superman has descended into darkness and becomes an evil version of Superman. The showdown between him and Clark Kent at the junkyard is a critical part of the film.

Hot Toys is happy to present the 1/6th scale Superman (Evil Version) Collectible Figure from Superman III as one of the 2013 Toy Fairs Exclusive items. This collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Christopher Reeve in the movie, highlighting the detailed head sculpt, movie-accurate costume and specially-designed figure stage.

Paying tribute to Christopher Reeve, we are pleased to support the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and their mission to advance research into spinal cord injury and improve quality of life for people living with paralysis.

For fans in Hong Kong, special arrangement has been made for pre-ordering of this exclusive item. For more information, please visit Hot Toys Hong Kong Official Store – Toy Hunters Facebook Page.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
