Holy Moley is that a gruesome cover! I have to admit that one is not high on my list, but if there was a vociferous movement to have it done, I suppose it could be...

I can't wait for the black terror figure. Any plans on other Nedor heroes?

I hope to have The Black Terror vs. Killer Robot figurine up for pre-order by early November. I'd love to release more Nedor characters; hopefully the market will embrace these figurines and allow me to do so. The sculpt I'm working on right now is Wolverton's Spacehawk; after that, I'd like to do a horror character or cover homage. I need to do a survey though to figure out what would really excite collectors out there, as I'm not really a horror expert. From what I've seen, there's a lot of great pre-code material to work with.

Hi All,

 

Finally received photos of the 3D printed prototype of Fletcher Hanks's Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle figurine:

 

2773709_orig.jpg

422004_orig.jpg

 

This will serve as the master for the production molds; only 250 (or fewer) figurines will be made. She stands 3.75" (9.5 cm) tall, about the same size as the Eaglemoss Wonder Woman figurine. There is only one more day left to pre-order her at the low, low price of $14.95; on November 1, the price will increase to $16.95. She is available in three color variants, with the production figurines expected to arrive in December/January.

 

Best Regards,

 

Jared

Hi All,

 

4096799_orig.jpg

 

We've set up a new survey to get a rough idea of the market size for the Black Terror vs. Killer Robot figurine, the prototype of which is in preparation. Participants will be emailed a special 5% off discount code when the figurine is put up for pre-order, hopefully by mid-December 2013. The price will be around $30, though the final price will be determined by the number produced, which will be influenced by the results of this survey. The more we make, the lower we can price it, so please share this survey with your friends. The minimum number we can produce is 150 and we need an indication that at least 120 can be sold before initiating production.

 

The Black Terror vs. Killer Robot is inspired by the cover to Exciting Comics #45 (March 1946) and will be a limited edition, hand painted polystone resin/white metal sculpture produced at 1/21 (Eaglemoss) scale and standing 3.84" (9.74 cm) tall. Some assembly will be required; more background and CG images of the figurine can be found here. No special color variants will likely be offered. The survey will be up at least till mid-December or until we reach the 120 threshold.

 

I also wanted to share some factory photos of the painted Fantomah prototypes:

 

9745130_orig.jpg

I think they look great considering that the figurine is only 3.75" (9.5 cm) tall. The one glaring mistake is that the heads of the Yellow and White Skull variants have been switched; since they are not attached to the body at this stage, it was a simple error to correct. The paint application appears a bit glossier than that of Stardust, but that is due to the strong lighting. I approved the prototypes yesterday and production is now underway, with the production figurines hopefully arriving by late December/early January. I'm still receiving a steady amount of Fantomah pre-orders and I wanted to note that there are only 16 blue variants left unreserved; if you have your eye on that one, I would pre-order it sooner than later.

 

Best Regards,

 

Jared

The Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle figurines have arrived and are now in stock:

2304593_orig.jpg

 

Fantomah is sculpted at 1/21 scale and stands 3.75" (9.5 cm) tall, with a weight of .6 oz (17 g). This is to the same scale as the Marvel and DC superhero figurines produced by Eaglemoss of England. The production run is limited to 150 pieces and divided into 3 color variants: the white (90 pieces), yellow (10 pieces), and blue (50 pieces) skull editions, each based on a specific color scheme from the original comics. Prices range from $17.95 to $22.95, depending on the variant, and the figurine can be purchased at Goldenagefigurines.com, eBay, and Amazon. Less than 50 remain in stock, with the yellow and blue skull editions almost sold out. Each variant has its own label, is individually numbered, and comes in a box with a unique full color printed sleeve. To reduce the chance of breakage, the figurine is packaged separately from the base; a small drop of super glue is required to attach it.

 

Fantomah, Mystery of Woman of the Jungle, is probably Fletcher Hanks's second most well known creation after Stardust. She is the first superheroine in comics, appearing in Jungle Comics #2 (February 1940) published by Fiction House, predating the first appearance of Wonder Woman by almost 2 years. A mysterious supernatural being who protects the jungles of Africa, Fantomah possesses near limitless magical power, including the powers of flight, levitation of other objects, and the ability to mutate her adversaries into any form imaginable. When the jungle or its inhabitants are under threat, Fantomah can instantly change from a beautiful blonde woman to a frightening skull-faced wraith capable of inflicting bizarre and brutal punishments on evildoers. All of the Fantomah tales drawn by Hanks have been collected in two fantastic books edited by Paul Karasik, I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets! and You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation!, both published by Fantagraphics.

 

I hope these figurines are of interest to you and thanks for your support!

 

Best Regards,

 

Jared

Hi All,

 

I've just finished my digital sculpt of Spacehawk, Basil Wolverton's classic sci-fi hero. I plan on producing him in 1/21 (Eaglemoss) scale; the actual height will be 3.94" (10 cm) from the bottom of the base to the tip of the raygun. I'm also considering the production of a larger statue in 1/12, 1/10, or even 1/6 scale.

 

The sculpt is based on his first appearance in "Spacehawk and the Creeping Death from Neptune," published in Target Comics Vol. 1 No. 5, June 1940 by Novelty Press; the first page is shown below:

 

15228145792_9c60ea9365_z.jpg

 

You can read the entire story on my Tumblr. I've selected three color variants from the story for possible production; you can vote on your favorite by taking the Spacehawk Survey; participants will receive a 5% off discount code good till 12/31/14.

 

15228393465_9e608facbd_z.jpg

 

Thanks for your time; hope you like the sculpture!

 

Best Regards,

 

Jared
