Also making his figure debut is Superman in the Unchained Armor as depicted from Scott Snyder and Jim Lee's Superman: Unchained. Now this feels more like a Jim Lee design brought to life. The "S" plate and blue parts of the armor have a metallic sheen to them, while the red has a simple gloss to it and the black is an almost matte.

With all the moving parts and intracises of the armor, the paint job is probably the best of the series, giving each layer their own unique look and it’s not all in one coat or texture. The wings were slightly more of a chore to attach than the Hellbat but when they’re in there, they are in. They’re on a ball joint so moving them or positioning them isn’t hard to do.

One thing of note though is that the left elbow joint was incredibly stiff right out of the box. The bracers overlap the wrist joint by maybe half a centimeter so there are limitations on how you can move that particular joint.

The wings are heavy on their own so the base might be helpful getting Superman where you want him.

‘Rama Rating: 8 out of 10
