DC Collectibles Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review!

Published

on

Entertainment Earth sent over a Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman statue from DC Collectibles, for us to review.  While this statue has been out for a few months, it might be worth the effort for those that initially passed, to give it some more thought.  So sit back, grab a cup of your favorite beverage, and check out what I have to say about this statue.

Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review

While Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice was somewhat of a divisive movie for the DC fan base, it did rake in a ton of cash at the box office, and gave us some very nice collectibles to boot!  Today we are going to take a look at the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Superman statue.  This piece was produced by DC Collectibles, was sculpted by James Marsano, and is a companion piece to their Armored Batman, Batman, and Wonder Woman statues.

Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review

Close shot to show skin.

The statue comes out of the box in two separate pieces.  You get the completed Superman with poll pre-attached to his knee, and the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice logo base.  The pole attaches to the base to give Superman that appearance of being in flight, ready to rain down punishment on the Dark Knight.

The paint application on this piece is very nice.  There were no issues of over spray on the piece, but the face paint suffers from what most high end collectibles from today suffer from.  Painters try to get as much individual detail as possible into pieces.  Part of this process is by providing freckles and moles to the piece to give it a more “life-like” appearance.  Herein lies the problem.  Instead of accurately placing these beauty marks, painters randomly place them all over the skin.  In today’s world of high definition, oversized screens, it isn’t hard to find blemishes on actor’s faces.  Once we see them on screen, we kind of have an idea of how an actor’s skin looks.  That is why when I get a piece like this, and find freckles in places that they shouldn’t exist, it is sort of off-putting. (click on the image to the right to get a better example.)

The sculpting work of James Marsano is simply fantastic.  I don’t know what technique he used to get Superman costume down, but the end result is remarkable.  It literally looks screen accurate.  That is some precise work that I can only image took a lot of time and effort to produce.

The pose comes straight from the movie, as we see Superman flying in for a punch.  Marsano nailed Henry Cavil’s likeness better than any DC Collectibles movie statue than I have ever seen.  The only thing that keeps this from looking exactly like Cavil is the paint application.  Kudos must go out to Mr. Marsano for near perfect execution in this sculpt.

The cape is cloth and has wire sewn into the sides to allow you to display it in manner that you want to.  I prefer the flowing down the sides look, because to me it looks more natural, but hey if you wanted you could get it to stick up in the air.  While I was put off by the cloth cape in the solicitations, it does give this piece something unique so that you can display it like you want.

Dawn of Justice Superman Statue Review

Superman ready to strike!

The base is just a solid piece of resin that is an exact replica of the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice logo.  You really can’t go wrong with this, and I imagine that if you have all four statues together, that it would give a nice aesthetic to your display.

My only concern with this piece is the long term durability of it.  As you can tell, Superman rests on the base via a pole that is firmly planted into his knee.  This pole then attaches straight down into the base.  The only problem with this is the fact that Superman wobbles a bit.  I had him on my kitchen table earlier and I had the pole firmly planted into the base.  The slightest shake to the table made Supes sway back and forth.

While he will not do this as bad upstairs on a display shelf, where I don’t have as much traffic, I do worry about it.  Another thing is the weight of Superman on that pole over a period of years.  You have to wonder if the pole will start to bend, because some of that weight is shifted to the back of the statue.  I guess time will tell on this piece.  But for now I am happy with this statue.

If you are interested in a spot-on likeness of Henry Cavil as Superman, then you don’t want to pass on this statue.  While it will set you back about $120.00, you can’t go wrong with this piece.  DCCollectors.com gives this piece a 4 out of 5!  Skin paint issues aside (which are more my issues than actual issues with the piece), this is an action posed statue that any fan of DC Comics or these particular movies, would love to have in their collection!
