August 7, 2016: Play Arts KAI Black & White Superman Figure

160807-PlayArtsKAISupBW1Square Enix has unveiled their Black & White version “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” Play Arts KAI Superman Figure.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts the clash of two iconic heroes in the DC Comics universe. Now SUPERMAN joins the fray as a Play Arts KAI action figure!

SUPERMAN has established himself as a shining beacon of hope for humanity. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he faces off against BATMAN, the dark hero of the DC Comics universe.

We’ve highlighted the noble, classically heroic characteristics of SUPERMAN, in striking contrast with BATMAN’s complex dark aspect. The chest and cape utilize flexible materials, creating a wide range of motion. SUPERMAN’s iconic take-off and landing poses are easily recreated. We’ve paid special attention to the fine details, keeping close accuracy to the design of the character in the film, such as the small Kryptonian insignia etched into the waist of his suit. The finishing touches are his accessories, including expressive interchangeable hands, and a face piece that features his powerful heat vision. All this and more make this figure a superb depiction of SUPERMAN.

Tried to comment on this the other day but the comment program wasn’t working… so…
I’m not too interested in black and white figures/statues, especially in regard to Superman. The b&w stuff is far more suited to Batman – kinda his thing. BUT, I WOULD be interested in a b&w statue of George Reeves in the made for b&w tv super-suit. A Clark Kent version of Reeves would be great, too.
