Darkseid Conceptual Unpainted Hardcopy


Super Powers prototype enthusiasts may remember the debut of this conceptual Darkseid on the site years ago in its wax sculpt form. While the sculpting doesn't reside in my collection, I was afforded the opportunity a few years back to purchase this original unpainted hardcopy and jumped at the chance to finally have an example of this early rendition. As you can see, it's cast in a brown urethane commonly referred to as carbalon. The torso and head are cast as a single piece, but the limbs are all pinned to the torso using metal dowels. Also note the legs were sculpted as single components instead of the later two-piece construction. This piece clearly represents an early look into the development of the Darkseid figure.
