Toying Around Reviews - DC Multiverse: Justice League 2021 Superman (Target Exclusive)

Updated: Feb 11


Today we will be taking a look at Superman from the Snyder Cut of Justice League. Now while this is the look Superman had in the movie, this is not the colors, Superman had a black suit on. This normal Blue suit is a Target exclusive. McFarlane Toys, a subsidiary of Todd McFarlane Productions, is a company founded by comics creator Todd McFarlane which makes highly detailed model figurines of characters from movies, comics, popular music, video games, and various sporting genres.

 

PACKAGING: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.

The top of the box lets us know that the figure has 22 points of articulation. The front of the box gives us a big window that lets us see the figure and everything he comes with. Just below the window, we have the DC Multiverse logo and the 2021 Justice League logo. At the bottom of the box, we have Superman’s name. Turning the box to the side we have the figure’s name and where he is from. The back of the box gives us a look at the figure’s collector card that is also inside the box. Below that we have the rest of the figures you can get from the 2021 Justice League movie. Turning the box around one more time we get a small window that lets us see the figure.

 

OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.

Taking Superman out of the box we can see that the figure itself looks very good, the suit looks just like it did in the movie. The head sculpt is well done and you can see that it does look like Henry Cavill.

 

ACCESSORIES: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.

Superman comes with a flight stand and a trading card.

 

ARTICULATION: How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!

SUPERMAN’S ARTICULATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING: DUMBBELL JOINTED NECK - allows you to turn the head 360 degrees.

BUTTERFLY HING - This allows you to move the shoulder area front and back to get a better range of motion.

BALL-HINGED SHOULDERS - Gives the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm.

UPPER BICEP SWIVEL - This cut lets you turn the whole arm below the cut 360 degrees.

DOUBLE-JOINTED ELBOWS - This allows you to bend the arm over 90 degrees.

BALL SWIVEL HINGE WRISTS - With this, you can turn his wrists in a full 360-degree circle while also bending them up and down.

DIAPHRAGM SWIVEL - This lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the diaphragm.

BALL JOINTED WAIST - This lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist.

HINGE JOINTED LEGS - With this it allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion.

DOUBLE-JOINTED KNEES - The joint allows you to bend the leg itself back to the butt of the figure.

BALL JOINTED ANKLES - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back and also to the left and right.

 

SIZE COMPARISON: How does the size of this figure compare to others?

Superman stands right at 7 inches tall. Here is Superman standing next to his comic counterpart from Action Comics #1000, Next, we have Superman standing next to Detective Comics #1000 Batman and Armored Batman from the Justice League movie. Lastly, we have Superman here standing next to He-Man and Skeletor from the MOTU Masterverse line.

 

RATING: What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?

PAINT JOB 4.5/5 - The paint on the body of the figure is very well done, the paint on the head sculpt however I feel is a little caked on, kinda how it was also on Aquaman.

FIGURE SCULPT 4/5 - The sculpt over is very well done. the only issue I have is with the left arm, the upper bicep is so tight when you move the arm you start to stress the plastic. You can see the plastic start to stress in my picture in the articulation section.

POSING 4/5 - Stress marks aside you can get this figure into just about any pose you would like to do.

ACCESSORIES: 4.5/5 - flight hands or another punching fist for the left hand would have been a plus

DURABILITY 3/5 - The plastic is strong on the figure, and even though I was getting stress marks in the upper bicep, after I moved the arm the plastic did rest and the marks went away. I do worry about how that will hold up over time.

OVERALL SCORE 4/5 - I do enjoy the figure, I do think it’s one of the best Superman figures Todd has done so far. he would be perfect with just a little less caked-on paint for the face and to be able to move the left arm without worrying if it will break.

RETAIL COST: $19.99 I PICKED MINE UP AT MY LOCAL TARGET.

 

TIME FOR SOME TOYING AROUND!!
