It’s A Bird! It’s A Plane! It’s Revoltech’s New 52 Superman!

The iconic superhero with the iconic theme song has a new figure in Kaiyodo’s Revoltech line of figures. As he appears in the New 52 relaunch of the DC Comics universe, Superman is ready to fight crime and strike dramatic poses.

We spotted this latest addition to Superman’s long list of action figures at the Big Bad Toy Store. Kal-El can be pre-ordered now for $109.99. The Yamaguchi Revoltech No.027 figure will be released in May 2022. This Superman figure measures 6.89″ tall and is made out of ABS and PVC.

Revoltech figures typically have very tight joints, somewhat like ratchet joints. They’ll hold posts without an issue. I’ve had the Optimus Prime figure, and he could achieve the most iconic poses seen in cartoons, movies, and comic books. Check out the photos below to see how flexible the last Kryptonian is.

Based on his appearance in DC Comics’ New 52 series, Superman joins the Amazing Revoltech Yamaguchi line of figures! Measuring almost 7 inches tall, Superman comes with 4 alternate facial expressions, various interchangeable hands, and his iconic cape that can be posed dynamically on its included figure stand.

Supes comes with the following:

  • 4 Alternate head sculpts
  • 8 Alternate hands
  • Cape
  • Figure stand

I’ve not read the comics. So, I’m unsure what the difference is between this Superman and the one we knew before Flashpoint. But, I’ll admit that I like some of what New 52’s Superman brings to the table, cosmetically at least.

The legendary superhero’s traditional red and blue costume will always be my favorite, but adding the panel lines and a little more depth to his emblem makes this version of Superman look a bit more intense.
