    Well, it's been a long road for this project spearheaded by Cking. Well worth the wait.And a big thank you to Cking for having the patience for this project and the vision. It turned out better than I could hope for. The only work I did was paint this one up. The costume is all fabric and as close to the real suit as could be.
    Here are the photos.

    Jeff from Screenused.com made the case for me. I picked up the emblem base on ebay. It's a 3d effect acrylic symbol. Our own Wynn Studios made the plaque.

    Alright,

    Here is CKING's painted Superman. (mine is still being completed)

    It looks VERY real IMO. While the above paint job is just ok IMO, I think this one is awesome and really shows how nice this piece can look.

    INCREDIBLE:

    I was getting the updates when the project first started, but then they stopped coming. I hadn't seen anything posted, so I just assumed the project had stopped. Now I wish I had asked more about it..

    Serge, I finally renovated the office, repainted and moved everything around, no more purple walls.. :)
    Hong did a helluva paint job, but I'm perfectly happy with the paint job I did.

    Nice.
    I'm not big into Superman, but that is a nice piece of work... Alas, the only thing I that seems a bit "off" to me is the mouth; Kinda has the "Lois" from Family Guy look to it...

    But that's just me... :confused

    Regardless, I like it overall; I'm hoping once I start doing stuff like that it will turn out as nice.

    This is turning out nice.

    How much for these Maquettes???

    CKING's painted Superman is awesome.
    I agree about the Lip on the first head something seems a bit off.

    Also, who did the Miniature Costume? AWESOME JOB... :D :D :D

    AGAIN, LET ME REITERATE, they aren't for sale. Only a few were made for a small group of collectors and that's it. There are no more available.
    This thread is a show off thread only.

    They used to be, I checked my old email and found the offer from cking for quite a lot of $$$ plus shipping.

    Too bad for others that wanted them, they are too late now.

    I just don't want people getting the wrong idea that more are being made. They aren't. Whoever did not get in on the first and only run are unfortunately out of luck.

    looks FANTASTIC....(and certainly better than the soon to be released Supes)
    Honestly, does ANYBODY look at stills from the new movie and think that "that" guy is Superman??

    That is absolutely wicked. Really shows what a good paint-job can do. It can make all the difference of whether a piece is considered a mere toy or a real collectible. Impressive.

    Let's wait to judge until we've seen his performance.

    As I recall, I have read that many didn't consider Chris Reeve to be Superman until after they saw the movie and also some formed their opinion over time, yet still, there are those who don't think he's Superman at all. I guess it is all down to personal preference.

    To me, both on screen and off, Christopher Reeve WAS (and still is) Superman. :)

    Awesome work with the Reeve Supes, guys. :D

    Yeah - you guys have no opinion now since Chris Reeve wife thought something other than what you did. I mean, C'mon, Dana has such exensive casting experiance and we all know she was the definitive Superman authority.

    Maybe it's just me, but there was a time when posting something like this was
    considered INCREDIBLY rude & disrespectful to the original poster...

    But again, maybe it's just me...

    :lol No No No - I never said that. I said the Tom Selleck Indy proto sketch is cooler than Harrison Ford.

    Now back to the Superman figure --

    Will these be ready by Summer?

    Thanks for the comments guys. Glad you like him streetjudge. Looks fantastic in the case with the base and plaque.

    Sure, it was a hell of a long wait, but definitely worth it.

    Jet Beetle - they are not available any more. Sorry about that.

    20+ years from now, do you think that there'll be a prop board with "Show Us ya Brandon Rouths" as a title??

    Personally.................I can't see it

    and don't anyone go thinking that I'm purely a Reeve-Boy....
    Heck, Dean Cain......Tom Welling.....Even they guy that played "Superboy" a few years ago.

    They all had a certain "Supermaniness" about them......Even in stillshots.

    Brandon looks........well...........um..........errrrrrrrr........how can I put this....

    Shouldn't you at least WAIT to actually SEE the movie & Brandon in action before
    coming on here & bashing what us Superman fans have hopes for? You want
    it to fail? Good for you, but why rain on our parade?

    Serge

    was I "bashing" the movie??...
    Did I say that I "wanted it to fail??"

    IIIIIII don't think so....
    I merely expressed an opinion saying that I don't think that Brannnnnndon was a good choice for the role.

    I hope the movie ROCKS, but in my mind it takes more than putting a guy in a costume to make a "Superman". It takes a certain "something" that, from looking at the trailer and stills, I don't believe he has.

    "Pardonne moi" for expressing an opinion.
