“That guy is like Superman!”

You’ve heard the phrase a million times.  Now, it’s time to turn it into reality, as UD Replicas makes available for purchase its MAN OF STEEL leather jacket, pants and boots, which created a huge buzz when they were previewed at San Diego Comic-Con in July.


Every inch of these impeccably crafted outfits is imbued with the power and heroism of Superman.

With an edition size of 750 MAN OF STEEL leather suits, sales are open now at – and scheduled to end Dec 14 or earlier if capacity is reached.  Delivery is set for Q1 in 2014.


Each MAN OF STEEL suit features the SUPERMAN™ chest logo and belt buckle, with trim detailing made from injection-molded, flexible rubber body armor.  All suit jackets incorporate form-molded leather muscle groups in the front torso, as well as the back, shoulders and biceps, and also have a removable collar.  Pants feature muscle groups in the front thigh.


For motorcycle enthusiasts, the eye-popping MAN OF STEEL leather suits also include removable CE-approved body armor in the forearms, elbow, shoulder and back-spine areas of the jacket, and in the sides, knees and shins of the pants.
Inspired by the massively successful Warner Bros. film, the MAN OF STEEL leather jackets and pants are designed in a deep-blue suede leather, modeled directly after the costume worn on screen by Henry Cavill.  The boots are made of red-suede leather, and both the jackets and boots feature raised silicone chain-mail in the design.


A “dream sequence” version, designed in all black-and-gray hues, is also available, both featuring the instantly recognizable SUPERMAN™ “S” logo, as well as the General ZOD all black leather suit.


Available in sizes ranging from XXS to XXL, the jackets and pants in the MAN OF STEEL suit zip together at the waist line and are made from Grade-A cowhide.


UD Replicas’ MAN OF STEEL leather suit can be purchased as a set for $1,325 CDN (approximately $1,267 US).  Jackets, pants and boots can also be purchased separately.  Full pricing and immediate ordering, for delivery in early 2014, is available now at UD Replicas’ website,

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
