In 1940, Ideal Novelty and Toy Company created a 13-inch tall Superman action figure. The toy was made from wood minus its head and upper body. The toy has become one of the most highly collectible in the world.

This doll is the first to ever be made for the franchise and sold for just 94 cents when it was released. With a selling price of more than $20,000, it is now worth almost 30,000 times more than the original MSRP.
