Just want to post my next and ambitious CustoMego project idea.
When I'm done with the Darth Vader figure,I will take a break on the SW figures and start on this.
I got the idea from the art of my fave comic book artist Alex Ross.
The cover of "Age of TV Heroes" book by George Khoury and Jason Hofius, from Two Morrows Publishing.
I was organizing my bookcase a month ago and got a hold of this book again and which inspires me to do this project.
I also got request from friends and members in the MEGO community.
I know figures had been made in the past and in custom works also,I just want to do my own retro style version,It's like MEGO look of the future which has a blast from the past.With more detailed touches,specially the head sculpts.
I've finished the card art I intend to use and here it is and my plans for this project.
Alex Ross book cover art;
1) My Idea for Superman.
George Reeves with two variants,colored suit/figure and a limited edition(as I've called it) is a black,gray finish(like BBP's Twilight Zone figures).
Also since the head sculpt I'm doing can be use as for a Clark Kent figure,I will do a black/gray version of it too.
2) My Idea for Batman.
Adam West as Batman and might do a Robin (Burt Ward).
A Batarang accessory for Batman.
3) My Idea for Wonder Woman.
Another babe figure.
Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman.
I'm thinking of doing a rooted hair on resin or a fully sculpted hair,I'll try to experiment which will come out better.
Will go for the costume she used on the CBS series.
4) My Idea for Captain Marvel.
Jackson Bostwick as Captain Marvel.
5) Here are the card art that I've done for series 1,basically just the same,except for the figure names of course.
This is my homage to the TV HEROES back then.
After all being called "THE LAST SON OF KRYPTON" ,I should do these custom figures ,right?
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS CRAZY IDEA OF MINE?
