mattel-multiverse-superman-front.jpgWhelp…I guess I gotta remove my foot from my mouth here.  Last week, I spouted off against 3.75 inch figures and everything that’s wrong with that particular scale, especially when compared to the far superior 6 inch scale.

To prove my point, I picked up Mattel’s Multiverse Superman from Superman:  the Movie (AKA Christopher Reeve’s Superman).  Yeayeayea.  I know.  I know.  I know technically he’s really 4 inch figure, not 3.75.  But, for the sake of argument, I’m saying he’s a 3.75 inch figure (besides, what’s a quarter inch between friends?)

Grab your cameras, because this is the part where I remove my foot from my mouth.  As it turns out, Superman’s really not a bad figure after all.  One of the things that surprised me the most is how articulate the figure is.  Just about everything twists and turns, especially his lower waist/legs.  That was most surprising.  He turns at the waist, his leg move in just about every direction thanks for some sorcery Mattel was able to master.
