76002 Superman: Metropolis Showdown

Update: You can now view the hi-res images on flickr.

USA Today has dropped exclusive pics of the first set from Zach Snyder’s Man Of Steel which hits theaters June 14th. Just two figs in 76002 Superman’s Metropolis Showdown the smallest set, which will retail for $12.99US. Reports are these two appear in almost every set, so I’m hoping for variants. Expect pics of the entire line from our Toy Fair NY coverage next weekend.

Here’s a snippet from a press release made today:

In anticipation of Man of Steel, global master toy licensee Mattel unveils its wide ranging toy line including action figures, vehicles, playsets and collectible figures, highlighted by the fan-favorite and much-anticipated Movie Mastersâ„¢ line, which captures the superior accuracy and details of the film’s characters. Mattel will also introduce Man of Steel QuickShotsâ„¢, a new way to play with Superman with elements of flight and strength incorporated into the toy. Also supporting Man of Steel are global licensees such as LEGO, with exciting construction sets inspired by memorable scenes from the film; and Rubie’s Costume Co. with a new line of Man of Steel-inspired costumes and accessories for both kid and adult fans.

I’m glad they kept the new hair piece, even though he’s captain slick in the new movie.
