  1. Prime 1 or XM? Looks like XM statues.
  2. Agree the Essentials look lazy. DC Direct/Collectibles used to do a better job offering unique scuplts that capture artists' comic book designs. Seems lately they're saving that for their statue lines. Also... 15 of 19 items are Batman or Batman related. They should just rename themselves to Batman Collectibles instead of DC Collectibles.
  3. Ok here are pictures of the Mezco, Jim Lee Cel Shaded, and Lee Bermejo Designer Series. The Jim Lee image is from toynewsi, the other 2 are stock pictures from Amazon.
  4. We're doing 1/12 scale stuff only? Several figures come to mind: Figures already mentioned: - DC Direct Superman from 2003. This one, for some time, was probably the best "generic" comic style Superman figure (and I don't mean generic in a negative fashion...more like "regular"). I love the V shaped body and large S. As mentioned there are many reissues of this one. Don't get the "Reactivated" version from 2006; many reports of broken off hands in package. - DC Essentials Superman. This may be the current generic one to get, based on price and availability (inexpensive and easy to find). Description says its based in Jason Fabok designs, but I don't see it, really. The articulation is fantastic (much better than the 2003 figure). Loses points for sculpted on but unpainted belt loops and awkwardly articulated ankles. - NECA SDCC 2019 Exclusive. I can understand the arguments for this one being the best. The sculpt and paint apps are top notch. The articulation points plentiful. Nice heat vision accessories. A fabric cape that drapes beautifully. One ding: the material. NECA uses a rubbery plastic that I really dislike. Joints are super stiff to start. I used a blow dryer to soften them up a bit. Still feels like it's gonna break when posing it. Another ding is more of a personal thing, but applies to all three of these figures...no sculpted S; the S shield is just painted on. I'm a sucker for a raised S shield Figures not mentioned that I really like: - Mezco One:12 Collective Classic Superman. Man I love this one. The face sculpt is fantastic. Actual fabric outfit. Great articulation with double jointed knees and elbows. This is the one 1/12 scale Superman that catches my eyes the most in my cabinet. Unfortunately, long sold out and very expensive to get on the secondary market. - DC Collectibles Jim Lee Cel Shaded Superman. Just came out and exclusive to GameStop. Based on the New 52 costume. This is actually a repaint of a figure that has been released several times. This version, which looks like it just popped off of a comic book page, is my favorite. Limited articulation though, so your miles may vary. - DC Collectibles Lee Bermejo Designer Series Superman. If you like his art, check this one out, because it is a great 3D representation of what Bermejo does on the page. The wrinkles on the suit, the shading effects, the sculpted S. Just a beautiful figure. Works both as a classic and stylized Superman figure at the same time. Again, like the Jim Lee one I just mentioned, limited articulation.
