Mezco Toyz has released a deluxe box set that's inspired by the 1941 Fleischer Studios animated short "The Mechanical Monsters", which pitted Superman against a mad scientist and his army of robots. It looks like a dream set for Superman collectors.
The set includes three figures (Superman, Clark Kent, and Lois Lane), a giant fire-shooting robot, a quick-change phone booth, and a multi-level, triple environment diorama. Seriously, the details on this are amazing. Put Clark Kent in the phone booth and he'll come out as Superman thanks to the quick change feature. The diorama features the House of Jewels storefront on one side and a two-story diorama of The Mad Scientist's lab on the other. Additional features include a "drawbridge door that opens and rows of Mechanical Monsters with a secret volcanic cavern below where the monsters are forged".
