Joe con 2010 Did you see my brother the Skullman?

Postby Tracks » 06 May 2010 13:27

my brother was lucky enough to get one of the Skullman costumes form the 95 live action bits from Cotwold Collectibles back in 98. the spandex suit was not big enough but so he replaced the suit with a purple surgical scrub. He wore it to the atlanta con in 2007 and He wore it the to show this year. What was really cool was that the Wayne and Angus from the hasbro team recognised his character stating they worked on the line and are big AM 95 fans. He is still hoping for a factory produced skullman since they did Natalie and hasbro released Action man in the TRU 6 pack a few years ago
These are links to the joeclub dinner where he wore it for the costume contest (thats me in the army air corps next to him. He was happy to have made it through 2 cuts (I assume from the hasbro teams support/aplpause since we had no other friends at the show) http://www.gijoecon.com/ri2010/webfiles ... 8.JPG.html

Thats awesome. I worked on some of the live action sequences, and its good to see that fans were able to buy some of the props. (They were pretty cool) I have plans to make a custom 12-inch Skullman for my Dr. X's and this is great inspiration.

Actually back in 98 he and I were about 100 lbs lighter (not sure what that is in stone) but the stuntman who wore the suit was short (about 5'8) we are 6'2 with long bodies and short legs.

not that we have any delusions on our actual size now

I would love to see those opening sequences again. Most were shot at either Universal Studios Hollywood or Universal Studios Florida at various attractions. The DIC producer on set also produced the horrible "Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills" for USA Network.
