Superman’s (Christopher Reeve) pod from Superman IV: The Quest For Peace. This prop was used for the scenes in which Superman returned to his family home and recovered the Kryptonian energy crystal.
The pod is made of fibreglass and polystyrene with a transparent resin interior to simulate a bed of crystals running along the bottom. Green plastic is present internally, which in tandem with external underside lighting enhanced the green glow effect within the pod for the scene. A recess in the side is present to hold the Kryptonian crystal. The exterior is finished in grey and brown paint to simulate the appearance of stone. Displaying wear to the fibreglass around the rim, the pod remains in good production-used condition. Dimensions: 150 cm x 130 cm x 85 cm (59” x 51” x 33 ½”)
