View Full Version : Captain Evil!

Just wanted to share some concept images of a new character in the Captain Action universe, Captain Evil! An evil clone of Captain Action created by Dr. Evil, Captain Evil will be a formidable foe for Captain Action. I've been asking for feedback on Facebook and so far the winner is version F of the red costume.

I like the white skinned ones, very Bizarro.

Actually the skin tone is light blue, but yeah, most people like those versions so far.

I'd say "F" of either version, I'm not decided on red yet--maybe a darker red? I love the concept, though.

I am a little torn because I like the idea of reversed colors of Captain Action, but that is so cliche too.

I like the red because it is so different and stands out, much like the (cliched) yellow Reverse Flash costume. Just not reverse in this case.

I will vote Red A because I like the idea of Captain Evil being human, unlike Dr. Evil, or a Bizarro, or a MOTU Faker type of character. I prefer a Reverse Flash, Sinestro, Black Adam opposite type of character.

I think he needs a beard, or goatee like evil Spock on Star Trek TOS Mirror Mirror.

Red all the way, otherwise it looks too much like the others. Needs to pop.

RED F. No question at all. The only suggestion I'd have, and it would require tooling so this is probably not a good idea, would be to reverse the holster and sword and have something other than color be the difference.

Reversing the holsters would actually require new tooling because they're specifically designed for their current placement on the pelvis. It's not easily noticeable from the current images but the head sculpt for Captain Evil is completely different from the one being used on Captain Action. It's important to me that this character be more than a simple paint and logo swap of the Captain Action figure.

When and where is the regular Captain Action figure going to be available for purchase?

Assuming the Kickstarter is live by the end of July and gets successfully funded I'm hoping to have the figures available by October or November.

I'm so confused...I thought this Kickstarter thing had already been going on for like a year? This line was first announced in March 2014.
So it's been 15 months and we're STILL waiting on ONE 3 3/4" figure...it's like the 12" Captain Action costume sets all over again.

I'm beginning to think anything associated with CA is cursed.

Ooh, the Red F is NICE! Reminds me a bit of the evil Batman from the Super Friends episode "Universe of Evil".

Red F is my favorite. I think it needs the red costume to differentiate it from the regular Captain Action, and the blue skin and solid red eyes say "evil clone" the most to me.

Well, for your sake I hope it works out. After Buck Rogers and SMDM, you certainly deserve a lucky break.

That's not how Kickstarter campaigns work anyway. They can't be any longer than 45 days. And if you want to see the CA figures become a reality, you should have been looking for and backing the Kickstarter since you thought it was running. Putting together a KS campaign requires a LOT of behind the scene work and costs a lot of money to get everything together (sculpts/mockups/3D prints/painted prototypes). Instead of complaining, show your support by backing the KS campaign when it goes live like I will!

I've shown my support for ZICA by purchasing two of every figure they've produced. If these figures ever get made I'll do the same.

Thanks! I'm fairly optimistic the Kickstarter will fund considering what will be offered. I've got a few surprises in the works for it, one of which the MEGO crowd will hopefully like. :smile:

I liked the blue version better, but this is excellent as well.

I just wish that this was 8".

I just wish this was 3.75". We all seem to have preferences all over the spectrum. Was polling for scale prior to the crowdfunding ever a consideration?

The scale is 4", which isn't much different than 3.75". Also, I wanted the scale to match what's being done on other modern lines such as G.I. Joe, Marauder Task Force, and the Virtruvian H.A.C.K.S.

Yes, I know. I'm just picky. I never understood why Hasbro made the modern Joes larger either though. Compatibility is where it's at.

The red costume makes me think of Captain Scarlet. Overall, a cool concept!

Funny you should mention that because that's actually where the inspiration for this character came from. Originally I was going to call him Captain Crimson and have him be an ally to Captain Action.

Hi Craig - can't wait for these! Any updates?

Would you consider doing some of the Golden Age Heroes and Villains like the Amazing Heroes line in this style?

I'm still working on getting revisions made to the digital sculpts but everything seems to be on schedule for the Kickstarter at the end of July.

Yes, making some of the Golden Age heroes and villains from the Amazing Heroes line in this more modern style is a definite possibility. :smile:
