JND Superman (1978) Original 1:3 Hyperreal Movie Statue

With the thought that this could be the last Christopher Reeve Superman statue to be produced, we wanted this piece to be the most meaningful and most glorious. We wanted this iteration's quality to reach a level never reached before.

The way we decide on the material and production method is by seeing which expression seems the most realistic. And for this piece, we decided to express the outfit by 3D modeling and painting, instead of using fabric. We tried using fabric, and there were points about the fabric that got in the way for me in terms of realism. And as you know from JND The Batman, we pride ourselves in our ability to create texture through 3D modeling. Reeve's Superman suit was even more difficult to express than The Batman's. The solid suit had to look seamless along with the cape, which is fabric. And the wrinkles or stretched parts of the suit had to be very detailed.

1978 Superman is such a meaningful film and character, not only to us and the collectors, but to the whole industry of the superhero genre. If you consider how important the nostalgic factor is to collecting, you may consider Christopher Reeve and his portrayal of Superman to be the greatest Superman - at least to the generation that grew up from the 70's to the 90's. For the longest time, Christopher Reeve was the only Superman to us! All we wanted to see again was that tall goofy Clark Kent in the fedora and the thick glasses, and that cool, handsome hero in the lighter blue and brighter red tights that could catch a falling helicopter with one hand while holding Loise in the other arm. The contrast between the two characters made him so much more memorable, and the transformation in the rotating doors so much more dramatic.

This item is a Pre-Order! That means it is still in production and we do not yet know delivery costs. Delivery costs will not be shown in shopping cart or orders until the item is ready to ship.

Please note that by placing this order your deposit is non-refundable unless the manufacturer cancels production. 

Most sixth scale figures come double-boxed automatically when purchased through Secret Compass! Most other dealers will slap a label right on the cardboard shipper and ship that way with no protection. Secret Compass recognizes the value in your collectible figure and we always double-box the cardboard shipper, which comes fresh out of a master case so it shows no sign of shipping before it ships to you.

Because this item still in production, we do not know the final weight or dimensions, or even how many boxes there will be. Therefore, we cannot give you an accurate quote for shipping. Actual shipping rates will be determined when the item is in stock, and will be reflected on your final invoice.

The following are reasonable estimates for shipping based on the size/weight of various figures:

1/6 or 1/10 Scale Figures

Please note that size can vary greatly between different figures, and the above are only estimates based on figures we have seen in the past.

These estimates are by no means a guarantee of your final shipping cost - your final cost could be less or more. In the event that you aren't happy with the shipping costs, please contact us regarding other options, such as you providing your own shipping labels, a local pickup, or palletizing your order together with other figures and sending you freight on a pallet. We will always do our best to help you save money.
