Man of Steel Movie Masters General Zod (Kryptonian Armor)

Happy Holidays all! Take care to keep the noise down while Zod is around. He's nursing a sore neck and you won't want to annoy him when he's in foul mood.

There are a couple of different figures of Zod available. I chose this one as I think this it's the best of the lot. He looks fantastic. He's got a very good likeness to how he appeared in the movie. There's lots of great sculpted detail on his armour and it's well painted too. There's a silver wash on it which gives it a scratched up, battle worn look. We usually get a nice looking capes with our figures. Not with Zod though. His cape is tattered and frayed and has a worn look to it. The brownish patches are not as apparent on the actual figure.

He comes with a helmet. It's got great sculpted detail on it, even on the translucent area. It fits very well on his head. 

He also comes with a base bearing his symbol. It has the same textured detail like Superman's.

Articulation. He's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow hinge, wrist swivel, waist rotation, peg hinge hips, thigh swivel, knee hinge and ankle hinge. His shoulder armour restricts him from lifting his arms up side-wards fully. The most annoying part is that he can barely lift his legs due to his waist armour piece.

Comparison shots. I'll use him with both movie and comic figures.

Great figure. Pity about the articulation being restricted. Thanks for viewing!
