BATROS, Evil Mastermind!
Another great villain from the original cartoon comes to life as an authentically-styled custom action figure! Batros has been created using his appearance in the cartoon episode, “The Great Books Mystery” as inspiration and translated into a slightly more monstrous, more imposing, more bat-like rendition to fit in with the original design sensibility of the original MOTU toy line. Great attention to detail has been paid; even down to providing a detailed sculpt for his bat logo instead of the more animation-friendly flat design. He features an originally sculpted face and sculpted armor, newly tooled hands with slightly oversized, bat-like arms. He has a real fabric cape with elastic straps for the neck and wrists. His working power-punch action has been added to by crafting his hand to be able to hold and actually throw a special snake weapon that really glows in the dark (simulating the energy snakes he would blast from his hands as seen in the cartoon)! Also, he’s the FIRST Barbarossa Art Customs art piece which features the “peg-disk” articulation for the leg joints (i.e., no rubber bands!) He fits in perfectly with the original line! This figure’s details, weapon, action feature and choice of colors have all been executed with vintage sensibilities keenly in mind. Batros comes sealed on a custom card with multiple pieces of original art. Uniquely-created and hand-crafted by the artist, this is a very limited run for the adult collector.
Barbarossa Art Customs: The Big Bang Project:The Big Bang Project is my effort to add to the original line of MOTU through custom-crafted art pieces (i.e., custom action figures) which fit into an imaginary history of what might have happened had the line continued. Authenticity is my main goal, so for every element of design or fabrication I do my best to keep to the spirit of the original line. “How would it have been if they’d made it back in the late 80’s?” is the question I always keep in mind. I want to create figures which fit seamlessly with the vintage figures and create the characters we all wished to see back when we were kids. It’s an artistic and nostalgic joy to bring back those memories as well as create new ones, the way that only finding a new MOTU figure on the pegs at the local toy store could do!
