This Superman For Tomorrow statue by Kotobukiya is based on a story arc:
”In the 2004-2005 twelve issue story arc written by Brian Azzarello, Superman faced some of his most difficult times as he investigated the worldwide Vanishing, dealt with an alternate reality Earth, and faced off against mysterious villains. For Tomorrow is perhaps most famous for its incredible artwork by DC superstar Jim Lee.”
According to Kotobukiya:
“Superman stands in one of his most iconic heroic poses, standing tall with legs apart and hands balled into fists at his sides. The Man of Steel is vigilant for any threats, his head angled to the side as his enormous cape flows dramatically in the wind behind him. Superman has never looked better thanks to the highly detailed sculpt that displays his powerful physique as well as the distinctive elements of his costume, from the intricately defined muscles of his torso, arms, and legs to the creases in his boots, the subtle belt, and of course all of the movement and texture of the cape. “Big Blue” is resplendent in blue, red, and yellow, capturing the look and feel of his traditional costume. Befitting the serious tone of For Tomorrow, Superman’s angular Jim Lee artwork-inspired face captures his incredible intensity and focus while still including the required spit curl and flowing black hair.
Sculpted by Kouei Matsumoto (who also sculpted the Batman Black Costume ARTFX), Superman stands nearly 12 inches tall in the ARTFX 1/6th scale. An absolute must for any fan of DC Comics and the greatest superhero of all time, Superman For Tomorrow is the new definitive statue and will look amazing on your shelf by himself or alongside other Kotobukiya ARTFX releases.”
