Meanwhile, At The Hall of…Jedis?
November 2, 2012

…Or something like that.

So, with the big breaking news of Disney buying Lucasfilm, I’ve been in a Star Wars mood these past few days. I may just break down and write the next chapter of the “Unproduced Star Wars Concepts” saga. To be honest, it’s taken me so long to revisit it because this has been a very busy year at my day job. In fact, today is the first day I’ve had off in over two months! And of course, the concept of “not working” is alien to me now, so when a goofy mash-up idea popped into my head I immediately sat back down at the computer to flesh it out, instead of grabbing some much needed rest time.

Still, this was an enjoyable few hours creating what are more or less virtual customs. And no paint & sculpey mess that comes with the regular kind of customs! Anyway, it’s an odd idea, but a fairly self explanatory one. Hope everyone enjoys it.

*a few caveats: Yes, I know the second series should be The Legendary Super Powers Show,  with Galactic Guardians being third. But I took a little artistic license based on what fit the respective logos better. Apologies to the anonymous cosplayers whose pics I snagged. If this is you, send me your name and I’ll credit you! (Plus keep an eye out for a cameo by our very own Danny Neumann as Plastic Man, plus Allen Hansard as Firestorm and Brian Parsley as Green Arrow!). And finally, I really hate to watermark these, but we all know they are going to go around the web without attribution immediately. Even worse, I don’t want folk selling these on ebay as custom cardbacks. If you want to put these on your website, feel free, but please link back to  this blog post so people can see where they came from.

    I love this idea, and I was thinking why don’t you expand it with the Live Action Legends of the Super-Heroes and Rima from WB Green Mansions. Just an idea.

    Cooler than cool. Sorry to bring this beautiful set down!

  • Joe G. says:

  • Green Arrow checking in. ;)

    Thanks guys! Those costumes are *amazing*! Names and links added. If you want I can shoot you hi-res shots of your cards, too.

    love these pics including the doctor fate. one plus love how the art for supes and bats and wonder woman and shazam have a picture of the stars who played them including chris reeves and adam west. though the one as cyborg looks like he did not have a fun time in the out fit looks uncomfortable

  • [...] out this fun Star Wars/Super Powers action figure mash-up! This was pulled together by Jason “Toy Otter” Geyer over on Action Figure Insider. Both action figure lines were produced by Kenner, so this isn’t as far-fetched as you might [...]

    @Demoncat – The Doctor Fate is from Smallville and played by Brent Stait.

    not sure who that Cyborg is, but the picture looks flipped? (the LEFT side of his face is metal. not sure if that’s how the costume was worn or how Jason found the pic?)

    Is that Jackson as Cap/SHAZAM? I got to meet him this summer at Contamination, and wanted to show him that magazine with the article that you wrote, but couldn’t find the magazine! D’OH! I’m half surprised I didn’t stumble across it a few days after, as I usually do, but still no luck. :/

    Those designs look awesome. The colors and everything go so well together. I think I like them better than the original designs. The one thing I loved about the originals is the bright colors.. You don’t see that anymore on cards anymore. I love how you kept it the same.. nice bright colors.

    I want some figures on these cards lol.
