Re: Super Powers Customs - Updated Feb 29, 2016


Now for the carded images. My intent for this project was to create an entire new wave of Super Powers figures and get them as close to manufactured items as possible with my limited means and materials. That means I had to card all the figures. This ended up being much more work than I first thought. Each character had to have a unique bio-card, logo, and character image created. Luckily I had a copy of the old Who’s Who comics which helped with the logos. The most difficult part was the character images. I wanted to use as many Jose Luis Garcia Lopez images as I could but that was not always possible so I did the best I could. I ended up almost completely redrawing and recoloring all the logos and character images which took a very long time. I designed to card back based on the Wave 3 cards, but modified to to reflect the growing line. I came up with a few new vehicles to add on. I even drew diagrams for each figures super power action figure, and got down to small details such as UPC codes, item code, and Proof of Purchase. I also made up a sticker for a free Bruce Wayne figure following with the mail-ins featured in each wave. All in all I'm really happy with how everything turned out, even if they're not all perfect. A very fun project.

I'll break these into two parts because there are a lot of images

Just amazing work. That Reverse Flash is seamless (how did you alter the head and remove any lines of alteration?), and Bizarro is great. The real challenge there would be producing a cape with the yellow but backward S on it.

Thanks mozartpc27! For Reverse Flash I cut out Flashes jaw under the nose/mask line and swapped it out. I filled in any seams with clay, then sanded it down until it was (mostly) seamless. It helped that the line is partially hidden by the mask.

I thought about putting the backward S on the bizarro cape, but once I realized it would be hidden when it was carded I decided to be lazy and not do it.
