SPOTLIGHT: SUPERMAN: RED SON PREMIUM FIGURE (SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES)
Bow down to this noble 1/4-scale sculpture of Superman from Mark Millar's acclaimed 2003 Elseworld's mini-series, Red Son, wherein the Last Son of Krypton was reinvisioned as a protector of Mother Russia instead of Good Ol' America. He stands an imposing 25 inches tall, decked out in the militaristic crimson and gray colors of the Soviet Empire, proudly emblazoned with his beloved homeland's sickle and hammer emblem.
Sideshow's commanding Comrade of Steel is carefully cast in premium polystone by an exacting team of 14 artists and painters. Infused with an iron glare and indomitable will, he fights the never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact, soon to be joined by his ally Wonder Woman and the vigilante Batmankoff. Weighing 15 pounds, this Soviet Superman demands a prominent spot in your collection and, at a price of $469.99, a serious commitment from your bank account. Pre-order now for a June 2016 delivery.
