New Images of Super Alloy Superman From Play Imaginative

Aug. 26th 2013

We already revealed the incredible Super Alloy Superman from Play Imaginative a few months ago, but the promising new company has released a bunch of new photos for a closer look at the impressive figure. 

Play Imaginative's Super Alloy line of DC Comics figures continues to expand. Batman is already out, Superman is right here, and Green Lantern, Flash, and others are on the way. It's a really fresh take on their classic designs, as the figures are made almost entirely of metal and look especially unique for it. You can see the latest shots and details for Super Allow Superman below.

I'm really starting to love the slick, almost armored look of these figures. Their sculpts are very angular and create a sort of alternate universe where a robotic Justice League of America runs the show. Superman retains his iconic look and stature here despite the controversial New 52 costume design, in large part thanks to the clean lines and accurate proportions of the sculpt. The head looks like Superman, the cape is plush and flowing, and the alternate head looks fierce and awesome. 

This isn't a cheap figure by any means, but  anyone who buys it will get an instantly unique and impressive collection. I think a set of Super Alloy DC Comics figures could become one of the most visually rewarding sets ever, and any fan who gets their hand on this fellow is one lucky collector.
