Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel was good, but it was honestly less than I was expecting. Though with that being said, Michael Shannon’s portrayal of the great General Zod was fantastic. What could possibly top that? A Hot Toys General Zod sixth scale figure! I picked this guy up quite awhile ago, but as you may have noticed, I quite far behind on my Hot Toys reviews.
The figure comes packaged in a really nice collector friendly slip box. Everything you probably wanted to know about the figure is included on the box, with some fantastic movie themed artwork.
After Sideshow Collectibles sent me the Man of Steel Superman, I couldn’t help myself but to buy this figure. Honestly, I wasn’t too fond of the new Superman in the movie, but him paired up with Hot Toys’ General Zod is amazing.
Going for the knockout punch!
Both figures come packaged with a flight stand, allowing you to make a truly epic display with Superman and Zod fighting to the death. He doesn’t come with that many accessories, but he does come with what’s essential like interchangeable hands, his helmet, and a flight stand.
You know how some Hot Toys figures seem to suffer from neck rub? Well, for this release Hot Toys added a new piece of foam in the head, which so far has done a good job at preventing any paint rub.
Overall I love General Zod as a sixth scale figure. His armor is absolutely badass. If you have the Man of Steel Superman figure already, this guy should be a no brainer. If you have any questions about the figure, feel free to ask them in the comments and I’ll definitely get back to you.

Where to Buy?
You can currently buy this figure at Sideshow Collectibles. It looks like Hot Toys produced way too many of this figure, as Sideshow is currently offering you bonus rewards points AND giving you 10% off the SRP. If that doesn’t sound like a good enough deal, I wish you luck finding a better one on eBay!
UPDATE: This figure is sold out on Sideshow, but you can still find this figure on Amazon, and you can always scooch on over to eBay and see if you can score a deal on this Hot Toys General Zod figure.
