Iím very excited about the upcoming Man of Steel movie, and love the costume design. Stll, I couldnít help but wonder what it would look like a little more classically inspired. So I took the newly released Man of Steel Movie Masters Superman figure and gave him a full repaint thatís inspired by his classic look. I made the reds and blues much more vibrant, and even gave him back his trunks! It has an intricate paint job with lots of washes and dry brushes of various pigments to help really bring out every detail in the suit. I made sure, for the yellow in his emblem and belt, to use two different gold hues to bring out a vibrant metallic look. I also sculpted a little spit curl coming down from his hair, to really drive home the classic Superman vibe I was going for. I also made it so Superman can actually look up now! The standard figure was a dog, in that it couldnít look up at all, but with a little modification he can now look up to the skies, and looks good in a flying pose.

But I couldnít just stop there! I also wanted to make some Superman related accessories. I made a few kryptonite rocks for a display, and even made him a kryptonite necklace, inspired by the one Christopher Reeve wore in the climax of Superman the Movie. I know that the kryptonite necklace is pretty specific to that film, but I dig it so much I couldnít help but throw one in for this Man of Steel custom. I also made some heat vision blast attachments! I took some Bevmo Martini picks, and clipped off the ends and shaved down the bulbous parts, made some small starbursts out of hot glue on some clear vinyl, and stuck the ends of the picks into them until they cooled down, and painted them clear red. Since I didnít have a second head to work from, these have to be attached with poster tack, but it works really well and looks so cool!

Now, not only does the Man of Steel have a classic looking costume, heís fully ready to take on any villain in his way!

Very cool, love the colors and I like the eye blasts... do they stick on or do you have to push him up against someone/thing to keep them on?

You have to use poster tack on the ends of them and stick them to what you want Superman to look like he's blasting, then put a tiny amount on the other end to place them over Superman's eyes.

Custom looks great, now all you need to do is sand off the texture and wrist things.. and paint out all the silver lines. ;)
