Unboxing: Hot Toys BvS Dawn of Justice: Superman

It’s time to turn up the heat once again as I unbox another epic piece from Hot Toys. Today we are checking out the BvS Dawn of Justice Superman. Let’s get to unboxing!
The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Henry Cavill as Superman in the movie, featuring a newly developed head sculpt, movie-accurate body proportion, newly tailored Superman costume with embossed pattern, the iconic red cape made with new material, and a specially designed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice themed figure stand. The box in typical Hot Toys fashion comes well made and sturdy with a overlying flap to reveal the contents inside. The backside has some more details on this Man of Steel.

On the inside we have a tray with some accessories including multiple hand positions. The included stand is quite nice with a very large Superman logo and small nameplate. The stand itself is the standard flexible pole with clasp.

The 1/6th scale Superman Collectible Figure’s special features:
– Authentic and detailed likeness of Superman in the movie
– Newly developed head sculpt featuring authentic likeness of Henry Cavill
– Real-like facial features with detailed wrinkles and skin texture
– Detailed hair sculpture
– Approximately 31.5 cm tall
– Newly sculpted muscular body with over 30 points of articulation
– Movie-accurate body proportion
– Eight (8) pieces of interchangeable palms including:
– One (1) pair of fists
– One (1) pair of relaxed palms
– One (1) pair for open palms
– One (1) pair of holding palms
– Each piece of head sculpt is specially hand-painted

The suit itself is quite delicate, made from a spandex type material. It can be a little tough when posing as the suit does stretch a bit. Awesome textures though with great details matching the character from the iconic film. The head sculpt is quite well done as you would expect from Hot Toys. A great representation of the actor. You can also see the fine details in his suite with this up close shot, really nice stuff.

Using the included stand you can pose him in various flying modes but I will mention once again that the suit can get a little tricky with the clasps around him so if you plan to pose this you can expect a bit of wrinkling in the costume, not a huge deal for me.

Costume :
– One (1) newly tailored Superman suit embossed patterns and Superman logo in chest
– One (1) pair of newly tailored red boots with embossed patterns
– One (1) red cape made with new material

Side view shows the details continuing all around the figure with the beautifully made red cape at the back. The cape is of good size and gives a nice soft flow across the figure.

Articulation as with all HT figures is expansive. Though I am not the best figure poser, you can adjust Superman in any way you’d like to get that exact battle look you are going for.


Let’s check out some more up-close shots of the head sculpt.

Very impressed with the overall quality of this figure even with some minor suit issues. When it’s time to turn Supes to the dark side he even looks great in black and white – here are some fun shots.

Of course it wouldn’t be right to not share a couple quick pics along side his movie counterpart, the Hot Toys BvS Batman. If you missed that unboxing I did previously click here to check it out.

Overall this is a wonderful rendition of the Man of Steel and another great piece from Hot Toys. Did you enjoy this post? Great!
