SUPERMAN, Last Son of Krypton
Its' a bird, it's a plane, no, it's an authentically-detailed vintage-styled MOTU Superman! Crafted to capture the quintessential 1980's version of the Man of Steel, this custom figure depicts Superman as he may have appeared as an action figure in the vintage line. But not satisfied with just inserting the Last Son of Krypton into MOTU, the imagination was allowed to go into overdrive a bit and ask the question, "how else might have Superman found himself in a cross-over with MOTU?" And the obvious answer arose: a war between the Forces of Eternia and The New Gods! Check out the artwork on the card for the storyline of this imaginary piece of mid-1980's toy history.
Superman comes with a cloth cape, power-punch action and real metal chains accessory that you wrap around his chest and secure by way of a small plug. When you use his power-punch, watch him "break free" from the chains!
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!
