Bandai Sprukits DC New 52 Superman Poseable Model Kit

7 Overall Score
Articulation: 5/10
Paint: 7/10
Sculpt: 9/10

Simple and fun to put together. The outcome is a pretty nice action figure.

Paint is okay, but could have been better. Superman has no eyes.

Sprukits are plastic poseable model kits that that are simple and fun to put together, no glue or paint necessary. Sprukits have three levels and sizes, each level needing a little more skill to put together, but still very simple and fun none the less.

Designed in Japan by Bandai, one of the kings of toys, television, and video games. Sprukits once assembled, depending on which one you have built are like owning something between a Mego Pocket Superhero and a Figma.

DC New 52 Superman is 4.06 inches tall, has 5 points of articulation, and comes with 36 pieces to put together, plus a small sticker sheet and is molded in color, no painting required. Probably one of the simplest model kits that I have ever put together since the old Revell/Monogram Snap-Tite plastic model kits. In the end it is a good looking Superman kit, my only gripe is that like the old Mego Pocket Super Heroes, for some reason the eyes are not painted in, so all you get is just a face, although you could always customize this kit and paint in the eyes, or paint the entire figure to your liking.

Probably the best part of building this kit is that in the end, once fully built it’s a poseable, playable action figure which you can pose and set up on a shelf next to your other action figures, or you can wait til everyone’s out of the house and use your imagination and have some fun with your new Sprukits New 52 Superman, I mean, you most likely own other action figures, so go ahead and set up that epic battle that you’ve always played out in your head, or just place Superman on a shelf and show it off to your friends. The end product is well worth it.
