With the thought that this could be the last Christopher Reeve statue to be produced, JND Studios wanted this piece to be the most meaningful and most glorious. They wanted this iteration’s quality to reach a level never reached before.
The way JND Studios decides on the material and production method is by seeing which expression seems the most realistic, and for this this piece they decided to express the outfit by 3D modeling and painting instead of using fabric. They tried using fabric and there were points about the fabric that got in the way for them in terms of realism. JND Studios pride themselves in their ability to create texture through 3D modeling. Reeve’s Superman suit was difficult to express. The solid suit had to look seamless along with the cape, which is fabric, and the wrinkles or stretched parts of the suit had to be very detailed.
Superman: The Movie is such a meaningful film, not only to JND Studios and collectors, but the whole industry of the superhero genre. If you consider how important the nostalgic factor is to collectors, you may consider Christopher Reeve and his portrayal of Superman to be the greatest Superman.
