This is both my inaugural Halloween Photo and the first experiment with my digital camera's exposure setting.

Man-Bat Build Part 1

My "How to Make an Asteroid M Playset" series went over quite well, so I'm going to try and do more making-off posts. I thought my Man-Bat figure would be a good subject. I've been meaning to build some DC Comics Noble Monsters for my collection, and, with the recent purchase of a sizeable parts lot, I now have everything I need for a really nice Man-Bat.

The lot of parts had a variety of bodies to choose from. I chose a body that allows the arms to swivel straight up and out from the sides of the body (a Bif Bang Pow! "Flash Gordon" body). This will allow Man-Bat to show off his wings when completed.

I sanded the neck plug of the resin Man-Bat head and fit it into the body. The parts lot had some pieces from Emce's Zombie Kit, and there was a pair of lanky zombie hands that reminded me of how Neil Adams draws Man-Bat's hands. I unhinged a pair of regular Mego hands at the wrist joint and replaced them with the zombie hands.

I found a pair of jeans in my main inventory for him. He's now ready for painting. While I'm painting him, I'll figure out how I want to construct his wings.

Trent from Harlan Ellison's "The Outer Limits" episode "Demon with a Glass Hand"

"Like the Eternal Man of Babylonian legend, like Gilgamesh, one thousand plus two hundred years stretches before Trent. Without love. Without friendship. Alone; neither man nor machine, Waiting. Waiting for the day he will be called to free the humans who gave him mobility. Movement, but not life."

1/9 Scale Golden Commode from "Raiders Lost in the Dark"

When I discovered that Figures Toy Co. makes a Mego-sized toilet, I knew what had to be done:

1/9 Scale Golden Commode from "Raiders Lost in the Dark".

I met my good friend Bryan way back in the early 80s, a foreboding time of difficult change for me. We met at a Creation Sci-Fi/Comics convention, and, sharing a love of storytelling and all things geeky, became instant friends. A few years later, Bryan invited me to participate in his independent film "Raiders Lost in the Dark", a feature-length spoof of "Raiders of the Lost Ark". It was a blast.

The 80s were difficult, but I made some great, lifelong friends. Bryan is among the best. I made this custom as a 50th birthday gift for him. I truly hope it honors and celebrates our more than three decades of friendship.

8" Confessor with Removable Mask and Card

Finally, at long last, I've completed the 8" Mego version of my all-time favorite character (That's all-time, in any genre, any medium).
