One of the earliest releases from Hot Toys was a Superman figure based upon the likeness of Brandon Routh from the movie Superman Returns. This figure is actually a “frankensteined” version (that I worked on in 2011) of the Hot Toys release to try to achieve a better looking figure.
The figure’s body and hands are from a Christopher Reeve figure, the costume and boots are from a version 1 Hot Toys release, the head is from the Superman 2-in-1 figure, and the cape is custom made.
*Since the original figure was released in 2007, I’m adding that year to this entry’s title even though many of the parts were released/created afterward.
This figure is included in my 1/6th Live Action Superman Figure Collection.
