The next sixth scale figure in Hot Toys’ “Man of Steel” collection was announced today to be none other than the film’s main villain, the treacherous General Zod. This highly-anticipated figure is scheduled to ship in April 2014 and will set collectors back $239.99. General Zod will be distributed in North America by Sideshow Collectibles.
Sideshow Collectibles said of the pending release, “Determined to rebuild Krypton and restore the Kryptonian race, General Zod has searched across an ocean of stars for Kal-El and the codex. When they finally meet, General Zod proves to be a formidable opponent; their epic conflict culminates in an earth-shattering battle through the streets of Metropolis. This movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Michael Shannon as General Zod in Man of Steel, featuring a detailed head sculpt, interchangeable armored head and meticulously constructed costume.”
Hot Toys’ General Zod figure looks be a stunning addition to the company’s “Man of Steel” collection and features the likeness of actor Michael Shannon. The sixth scale figure will also include an alternate head in case you prefer the character’s fully armored look. Hot Toys’ take on the iconic villain will likely be the most film accurate version ever to be released. It might also be one of your only chances to get a Michael Shannon action figure.
