The Long Goodbye Pt 1: Neil

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

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.
