Hey! It’s 2016 and it’s time to get off the couch, shake off all the Cheesy-Poof dust, and finish stuff up. I have a list of things promised or asked for and 2016 seems like the Year of Wrapping This Up.
Neil asked for a 12 pack of custom Legion of Superhero figures to compliment the 12 pack he sold a child for/ purchased on line. As memory serves, we had two last figures to make for his collection.
Phantom Girl has the power to be a phantom. Writing sentences like that makes me simultaneously long for the comics of the mid Fifties and go watch Negasonic Teenage Warhead again.
In the 30th Century, there is a whole planet of Native American Indians who have wings. But not on Earth, sooooo… they’re not really “Native Americans”. See also: that wing thing.
This is the second time I’ve designed this figure and it’s always a hoot to wonder how many strip cubs the original artist went to in dreaming up these costumes. For the record: fringe is fun to make, complex skin tones aren’t.
The Legion of Superheroes was a goofy-fun idea (a group of super-powered friends for Superboy to go hang out with) that lasted from 1958 ’til 1994. It has since been restarted in a variety of comics, animated shows, and a few TV appearances, with mixed success.
I hope Neil enjoys the heck out of these, because I think I’m only taking one last trip to the 30th century clubhouse.
