DC Direct Christopher Reeve as Superman Bust

In honor of DC Comics’ 75th anniversary in 2010, DC Direct released a series of limited edition busts and statues of what they called the “quintessential” portrayals of its heroes Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman. Included in the line were Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, Michael Keaton as Batman, and Christopher Reeve as Superman.

The box has the silvery logo from Superman The Movie, and even has the classic photo Christopher Reeve as Superman in front of the American flag on the side. The back features a short description, some photos of the rest of the “quintessential” products in the line, and a brief solicitation for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

The bust stands 6″ high and was sculpted by Adam Beane, who has also sculpted various products for McFarlane Toys, Sideshow Collectibles, and Hollywood Collectibles.

This bust is numbered on the bottom; mine is 509 of the edition of 2500.
