    Drawing board: Toth Superfriends Carrycase Playset

    It's kind of playset central around here today, so why not keep it going? I'm looking for feedback and ideas on a Superfriends Hall of Justice.

    Earth2Chris set me up with several amazing Alex Toth scans. Beginning with the Superfriends Treasury image I removed Wendy and Marvin and the dog and added the DC characters Mego made. Chris found a great Toth Shazam drawing, and I added the Toth Green Arrow from the Mego box. Supergirl isn't Toth, she's from the Mego box, and the Batgirl is from Batgirl's first appearance. Still have painting to do on the figures so they match each other better.




    The box itself has a big door cover which drops down to become the floor, that reveals the HOJ which opens into the two side chambers. The center panel is a big computer with several screen for showing scenes--this is the HOJ I've had on my site for awhile. But on the sides I'm not sure what to do. I want to see a hanger with the Invisible Plane in it and maybe a waterport with the Batboat in it. In one of the side chambers I want something that gives Aquaman something to do, so I want to be able to see the water, maybe an Ocean monitoring station, something like that. I was thinking of making the other side chamber a detention cell for villains.

    Very nice.
    It's good to see your idea's books.

    The Green Arrow looks as if he's leaning over ?

    Oh wow. You have got to be kidding me. GA and Supergirl look a bit pale compared to the others, but the art is fantastic

    Yes, I need to go in and give them the same paint treatment he gave the Superfriends. Rosy cheeks...But it's tough--It's also the line weight and the shading which I don't know if I can duplicate. His brushwork on that Treasury image is outstanding. He's rolling in his grave with this hack job, but I'll try to make it work.

    And if GA is leaning into Supergirl who can blame him?

    Uh, I don't think Black Canary would be too happy with that...

    Looks good Scott! I've always liked that rainbow-scheme the SuperFriends had.

    I'd blame the artist who designed those wacky shorts. She's such a mannequin compared to Toth's drawings which are so alive.

    .."In one of the side chambers I want something that gives Aquaman something to do, so I want to be able to see the water, maybe an Ocean monitoring station, something like that."

    How about a mop and bucket?....Bam, Pow, Zing.....Poor Aquaman just donts gets no respect...I hear he had to dress up like a beach ball as a kid to get the dolphins to play with him....
