Mern of sterl (5)

While a bunch of you have no doubt seen an earlier screening of the latest Superman flick, Man of Steel, the majority of us who are way too scared and cold to venture outside will most likely only be seeing it tomorrow or this weekend. And then we’ll be wanting some merchandise afterwards, i reckon. I’m busting out the credit card for this bit of merch specifically.

Hot Toys has crafted the last son of Krypton into a scale replica of actor Henry Cavill and his set of muscles that will now cause girlfriends to view their partners as lesser men.

It’s got the usual assortment of accessories, from extra hands for extra punching action, through to a Superman shield stand and a special pre-order bonus in the form of a Kryptonian command key at 1:1 scale.

Doesn’t look half bad. If you haven’t seen the film yet, here’s our review on it. Or you can read my review below that is based solely on the trailers:


Super squiggly spandex armour man will set you back around $200 (R2000) when he arrives next year.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    You mean to say that I can own my own Henry Cavill!?!?!?!

      Should we be worried?

      Don’t worry I own my very own Liam Neeson.
