    Ripped from Twitter: Death’s Head II live action

    Deathhead II.jpg

    From Liam 'Sharpy' Sharp creator of Death's Head II
    That’s me in the DHII suit, and Bryan Hitch was Cyclops - cropped at left. The rest were Marvel UK editorial posing for a publicity shot. We had a lot of fun back then - possibly too much fun! :-)

    From BRYAN HITCH:
    That pic is you as I was in the cyclops suit cut off at the left. That was the test for the Lord Mayor’s parade float where I was Death’s Head. (You and Chris couldn’t do it in the end)

    Love this sort of thing, always excited to see Cap. I was surprised to see Death's Head II but thats a UK angle, isn't it? You look great, did you make your costume?

    This was to promote the Marvel Comics UK. The suits look made for the event could be rent a suit from Marvel. I am surprised more of there original characters were not used.

    update:
    They only had a budget for the Death's Head II costume. The rest came on loan from the US Marvel who used them for Public Relations. That Captain America costume had been previously worn by Jonathan Frakes before his Next Gen casting.
