Superman Returns Jor-El 1/6th By HOT TOYS

This is the very first 1/6th scale figure that I've ever purchased from HOT TOYS (through Ebay, and worth every penny). I first laid eyes on this one over at The Fortress of Testicular Fortitude, and being a huge fan of the original Superman films and Bryan Singer's often (and even more often unreasonably) crapped upon Superman Returns, I had to snatch this one...

The Brando likeness (like most, if not all of Hot Toys sculpts) is spot on...
I'd love to see Hot Toys do an alternate version of this figure in the black judge's garb that Jor-El wore as he sentenced General Zod and his cronies to the Phantom Zone in the original Superman...
Speaking of the original Superman films; I'd really, really like to see Hot Toys issue figures of the aforementioned General Zod, Ursa, Non, and hey, how about a Christopher Reeve Superman...?
Once I crack this bad boy open, I'll post pics of the loose figure.

Shelf Pics

It's been a while since I've issued a new post here at P&PP so I decided to throw up a few pics I took of my recently constructed IKEA shelf. This probably isn't the permanent line-up of figures that'll be on display (I bought the shelf more for 1/6th scale figures). I was just messing around with it after putting it together.
