  1. DC MULTIVERSE THE UNKNOWN SUPERMAN OF 4500 AD So I loved this guy from the first time i saw him,, plus my son calls him the Mummy superman. While this a basic custom, i sculpted the bandages all the way to the chest to reflect a more comic accurate figure. I really love making these custom boxes now,, this one was alot of fun. As opposed to my last one i added a plastic figure holder inside to catch him in a heroic pose... The box is all original, the ? logo is created from scratch, the box contains original stats and bio: BIOGRAPHY: Almost nothing is known of the Unknown Superman of 4500 A.D. He is the succesor in the superman dynasty that serves in 4500. A. D. although the S symbol of previous supermen has been replaced by a question mark that lends to the already unknown identity of this hero as his face , neck and hands are covered in what can only be thought are Medical bandages. It is theorized these bandages hide higely disfigured features. What we know of his time period, he is in the midst of a battle with a great darkness. Once time traveling in the past The original superman once posed as the unknown Superman to hide his identity from a younger version of himself while assisting the superman squad in defeating the matter eating monster body and legs: DCUC Superman head and hands: DCUC negative man logo: original EBAY Item number: 330668700679
  2. So I have to admit that i did not read flashpoint at first, but after seeing superman drawn skinny and gaunt i knew i had to. This figure was a lot of fun to make,, Figure is a dcuc dead man, with kamandi calves and ankles, dcuc batman feet, the head is a Unmasked Rorschach figure with major hair sculpting. I created the logo myself. For this figure i wanted to do something really original for the box, i loved in the story how he was kept in a vault, so i decided to make the box his vault, the front panel opens to reveal the inner vault chamber (held close by transparent velcro tabs) and sealed transparent door. The inside box can be pulled out for display, but the box looks pretty cool. The back contains pictures, as well as full original stats and bio: NAME: SUBJECT 1 REAL NAME: KAL-EL HT: 6'2 WT: 170LBS ORIGIN: EXTRA TERRESTRIAL POWERS: FULL EXTENT UNKNOWN, POWERS REPRESSED FOR SAFTEY BIO: IN AN ALTERED TIME LINE THE ROCKET CARRYING THE INFANT KAL-EL, CRASHED INTO METROPOLIS INSTEAD OF KANSAS. KAL-EL WAS TAKEN BY PROJECT SUPERMAN, AND DESIGNATED SUBJECT 1. KEPT LOCKED AWAY IN A VAULT BY GENERAL SAM LANE, FAR FROM THE RAYS OF THE EARTHS YELLOW SUN, HIS POWERS ARE PURPOSELY MUTED TO EXPERIMENT ON AND CONTROL HIM. THE LACK OF SUN AND YEARS OF BEING A GUINEA PIG, HAS LEFT HIM, EXTREMELY THIN, GAUNT AND HORRIBLY PALE. IT IS NOT UNTIL CYBORG, THE BATMAN(THOMAS WAYNE), AND BARRY ALLEN THE FLASH FREE HIM FROM HIS CELL THAT KAL-EL GETS HIS FIRST EXPOSURE TO THE SUN AND THE IMMENSE POWER WITHIN HIM. upper body and upper legs: DCUC deadman lower legs and ankles: DCUC Kamandi feet: DCUC batman head: DC Direct unmasked Rorschach EBAY Item number: 330668704247
  3. So I have wanted to do this figure for a long time. I was alittle worried that people would think I am a neo-Nazi or something withoutsome context. In any case, this figure is a batman beyond body base, with a sculpted belt tobe comic accurate. I used a paint technique I have never used before, where Idid multiple layers of dry brushing only, with slightly lighter color with eachlayer. I think it turned great. Plus the figure retains all of the originalarticulation except for the neck and hip swivel now are a bit stiff. Chestemblem was custom from scratch using Adobe Illustrator. Head is from DCSHsuperman with removal and re-sculpting of the scalp on the side to match thecomic book character who has it shaved to the skin. Cape is from a DCUCsuperman with lots of cutting to make attach properly. This is my second attempt at packaging; I tried to make this more stylish andfitting then the other one. Designed on Adobe Illustrator, and printed on aHigh Res Laser Printer. The insert is removable to use as a custom background.There also is a basic stand included in the box. The back panel contains acustom bio and stats based on Overman's appearance in Countdown to Crisis: Rocketed to Earth as a baby from the dying world of Krypton, landing in theoccupied Sudetenland in 1938. From the rocket that carried him, Nazi scientistsreverse-engineered the technology to win the world WAR II. Overman was one ofthe super humans appointed by Adolf Hitler to be his heroes. And OVERMAN becamea member of the Gerechtigkeitliga, enforcers of the Nazis' regime. Overmanfound a substance called Kryptonite, and noticed that could not only weaken butalso kill him, which is the reason why he set out and destroyed apparently allthe Kryptonite in the world. When the Forerunner arrived on Earth-10 to recruitsuper humans for the Monarch's army, Overman attacked her but was defeated bybeing impaled with shards of Kryptonite, and ultimately recruited intoMonarch's forces. OVERMAN was most likely killed while fighting the Monitors onEarth-51. RUMORS SAY THAT THE OVERMAN THAT PERISHED WAS ACTUALLY A CLONE OF THEREAL OVERMAN WHO DISAPPEARED SEVERAL YEARS EARLIER!

  4. So I have been quite busy lately, but I decided to throw this figure together. After putting the figure together I just felt that it needed a box for display. So I put together the custom box. It's a real box; I created using Adobe Illustrator, all of the images printed with a High Res printer. I think the box really adds something. Funny Story I made like three smaller versions of the box in the beginning just to make sure that it went together perfectly and was sturdy. The inside insert can be removed from the box, the back panel contains a full info and custom biography based on the new character story from Action Comics 2011 This was the first time making packaging; it turned out so well, I may start doing commissioned custom packaging for people... The Figure itself is a stone cold Steve Austin figure. I clipped the bottom of the jeans, re-sculpted the rolled up bottoms, and repainted the jeans a more comic blue jean color. I sculpted the bottom and top of the t-shirt, sanded down and painted. Cape is from a dc direct first appearance Superman figure (Irony!) Head is from a dc direct secret identity superman. The figure does retain almost all of the original points of articulation except for the hip swivel. I had to sacrifice it to sculpt a comic accurate edge of the shirt.(i love that he does not have tucked in) The S was designed from scratch using Adobe Illustrator and the Action Comics #1 cover as a guide. There is a basic stand that is in the box as well. It will be going up on eBay; I think it would make a great Christmas present. Item number TBA. Name: Superman Action Comics #1 2011 with Special Edition Custom Packaging Toy Series: DC Universe Creator: Michael Condello Base Figure: Mattel WWE elite WrestleMania Stone Cold Steve Austin Component Parts: DC Direct Secret Identity Superman Head, DC Direct First Appearance Superman, Avis Fixit Sculpt Height: 7.00 inches
  5. This figure has been 15 years in the making. I always wanted a chris reeve superman since the day I first watched superman the movie. It became a labor of love when I finally started it after DC direct released the New Krypton figure. I wanted to find just the right sized body and scale. I wanted as movie accurate as possible. I obsessed about it. I sculpted the boots, gave the head a brand new paint job. Gave the body a custom paint job, sculpted the belt as well. Used and Sculpted the cape from a DCUC figure. whole figure is sealed to retain as much articulation as possible. I still think I could do better but I hope that you guys like this as much as I do. Because its my favorite figure I have ever made. Going to make another one and put it up to bid Head: DC Direct New Krypton superman body: WWE mattel legends Terry Funk boots and belt: Sculpted with avis sculpt Cape: DCUC superman
