I just want to know how long I'll have to save for him.

Not that it won't be worth it.

It's the closest match to his looks that I've seen. ditzyfish is right, there's a vagueness in the eyes, but I think it's a small price to pay.

Okay I really hate saying this but for me the figure somehow just doesn't look like Christopher. It's just something about the eyes...I think. I just can't quite put my finger on it. Don't hate me :/

But omg the Superman plush doll! so cute!

is he like a beanie baby or just stuffing?

That was the only issue I had with this one, the feel of no spark in the eyes, but it's the best resemblance I've seen and I have no idea how much longer they're going to be doing new tributes, so... *snuggles you* No worries.

Isn't he, though? And not sure. He looks like stuffing. SO DAMN CUTE!
