Man of Steel Figure Assortment Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Man Of Steel Action Figure assortment from Mattel is a collection of highly detailed 3 ¾-inch figures based on the new Superman movie, Man Of Steel, which hits theaters in June.

The initial assortment contains seven figures; Split Cycle Superman, Auto Assault Superman, Strike Shield Superman, Tread Attack Superman, Wrecking Ball Superman, Krypton Combat Superman and Shadow Assault General Zod.

Is It Fun?

All of the figures in the assortment have some great details including cloth capes, crisp paint jobs and a few points of articulation.

Each figure comes with an accessory that lets kids play out scenes from the movie. For example Split Cycle Superman comes with a motorcycle that can be broken apart into two pieces, Strike Shield Superman has a Battle Staff and Shield that can be combined to create a battering ram and Shadow Assault General Zod has two weapons—a blaster and a scimitar—that can be combined to form one large weapon.

Who It’s For

The figures are designed for kids ages 4 and up but fans of the movie of all ages are probably going to want to check these out.

What To Be Aware Of

Tread Attack Superman has a Mega Tire blaster that launches the tire like a projectile.
