Hard to believe, but this figure will be ten years old in November! This is a golden age style Superman action figure from DC Direct’s First Appearance series. He’s from the second wave of the series, which also included Green Lantern, Hawkman, and Robin.
This figure depicts Superman as he was drawn by Joe Shuster in his very first appearance in Action Comics #1. The figure is in an illustrated window box and includes a display stand and a mini-comic reprint of Action Comics #1.
This figure was also rereleased in darker paint as part of DC Directs DC Origins two pack series in 2010.
