FINALLY!
I have my ultimate Christopher Reeve figure!
 
 
This has been a figure that has taken more than two years to get made the way I've always wanted him.
I had a Reeve Supes posted here some time back, and I was very happy with him too. At the time anyway. But, the head I used, though an utterly terrific sculpt by the magnificent Jim Mattox, was not designed for a 12" figure but for his original and beautiful, freestanding bust, and was therefore not the right size or neck form for a figure.
Plus, my less than immaculate Mego Superman bodysuit that had definately seen some previous wear and play time made him look beat up a bit.
 
So, long story short....I remade Superman again, from the ground up.

With a lot of informational assistance, I resculpted my own Christopher Reeve head. I had the movie on DVD and access to the Net to find great picture references. So, I may or may not have caught him to perfection, but it was my very best attempt.

I had the great fortune of meeting, via the internet, Anthony Durso, who's boxes for Mego and other action figures online are superb.
(see link below).
I had to have one for my new Reeve Superman.
Thanks Anthony for a job well done!

I have wanted this figure for a long time. I have had great feedbacks about it being a "Dream figure" to other very nice, kind things. But that dream comment, I think it's true. I wish it was out there for the world.
We all loved Chris and having this is a dream fulfilled for me.
 
So, with that said I give him my final tribute...

In keeping with the Reeve as Superman theme, I crafted this version of the character as Clark Kent, Daily PLanet Reporter by resculpting the hair in the reverse flip and by adding the needed suit outfit and accessories.
A simple enough variation on the theme, but a very requested one.
Hope you enjoy it as well.

These heads and figures are no longer available. They were a VERY limited run back in 2006/07and have long since sold. I do not make these anymore. I don't even have a set for myself! But, one day I may make myself one of each, for old time's sake, and when I do, they will NOT be for sale at any price.
I have wanted them for too long to not have them still....
 
Thanks for your interest regarding this project!
