I’ve been researching this line of Superman statues by DC Collectibles for some time now. Decided to share my findings with you fine folks. If nothing comes of it other than we get to gawk at some nice collectibles together, I’ll call it good times.
“Superman The Man of Steel” is a line of 1/10 scale (7"-7.5") cold cast porcelain statues made by DC Collectibles between 2013 and 2015. All the statues were based on different artists’ interpretations of Superman. Given the “Man of Steel” theme, each statue featured metallic paint apps, and an S shield base with rivets running along the side. I’m gonna list them in order of appearance.

And that’s it! It didn’t last for 100+ pieces like Batman Black & White, but there are some gems in the 15 statues we did get.
It’s worth mentioning that all of these are sold out and are available only on the secondary market. Some are still available at near or less than msrp, if you look hard enough, and some can only be had for multiples of the original price.
If you’re looking into collecting this line, I hope this serves as a helpful resource. Curious to see what everyone’s favorites are .
