I KNOW I am naive to assume think, that genre-specific "superhero"-movies these days are about celebrating geekdom and a subculture where previously shunned, and of exciting stories to be (re)explored and harvested in it's golden glories … when the speculative-fact is, "toys" (or the selling of toys) might well be the catalysts for this happenstance. Seems costumes and sequences "are" designed to be made specifically for action figure-adaptation and playset-depictions, aren't they?

Be that as it may, I am pretty grateful to have superhero-flicks be common-place in this age in which I live in … altho sometimes I wish, the toys would not necessarily "spoil" the story / plot … here be snaps of SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL toys seen at the weekend ToyFair 2013 - from carded action figures above, to 1/6-scaled statues posted below. I would state "Spoilers Ahead", but you'd already know that…

"Kneel before Zod!" = apparently this term was not uttered in this film … would've been "fun" tho :p
