The waxwork of Christopher Reeve’s Superman was displayed solo in the exit stairwell of London’s Madame Tussauds for many years. It was originally adorned with a genuine production made costume (with the exception of a lightweight cape to accommodate a ‘rippling’ effect generated by a fan placed beneath) before being moved to the ‘Movie Room’ and, presumably due to degradation, stripped of the real suit where it resides today in a poor quality copy (bottom pic).
I first saw this a teenager on a visit with my parents in the late Eighties.  As I spent time to take pictures I enjoyed watching the effect the display had on people as they spotted it – prompting excited cries of ‘Look! Its Superman!!‘  It so captured my imagination I was determined to one day have one of my own.  Check the Ultimate Superman 1:1 thread for its progress…
