i'm w00ting my own horn because i helped do this. Check out the Mego Museum Board, where Dr. Strange überfan Howard Hallis has posted photos of the custom Eternity figure, an eighteen month project he just completed. i made the costumes with amazing cotton celestial prints Howard located, but discovered in the process that there is a damn good reason superheroes and vast cosmic entities usually wear spandex. The 13 inch Lex Luthor figure used for the custom was extremely musclebound, with tiny wrists and ankles and a wasp waist. In order to get any degree if fit, the entire inseam of the outfit had to be velcroed. But the two fabrics and the reversible cape and cowl make him able to recede into the cape, or move into focus, as you can see in the photos. HH's father-in-law, Michael Blair, did the fine custom paint job.
And the packaging, which pulls the illusion off, is the real deal. My favorite bit is the back of the box, with all the other Dr. Strange related toys we deeply wish we could have, including other Strange-related customs and the Defendersmobile. Yesterday it was decided that i completely love the Living Tribunal custom, and must make one myself. Hey, i don't even have to sew clothes!
Thanks again, Howard, for the chance to warp time and space!
