Man of Steel figures be on the visible horizon @ NYCC 2012?
With NYCC 2012 approaching this weekend fingers are crossed that we will see the first shots of Man of Steel Movie Masters revealed this weekend... if not... there's always ToyFair in February?
Don't let us down, Mattel!!!
Packaging was developed under the influence of previous texture heavy designs used by Mattel in their earlier Movie Masters lines. The physical package itself is built around a low material usage concept using a 9" x 10" double sided board print creating the entire package (plus plastic window and caps of course)
Figure is built on a WWE Elite Buck with Substituted standard articulation torso. All other elements are sculpted. Cape is Sculpted from the collar bone to the middle of the shoulder blades then continues as a fabric cape. It creates the illusion of total control of the fabric as it tucks in but then give the flexibility of fabric without the weigh and instability of heavy rubber/vinyl capes.
Of course there's always the chance that we'll have to wait a little longer for a movie that is looking to build its anticipation... So until then, here are some Product Concept Samples from Yours Truly.
