Take a look at the 3 exciting images posted by Captain Action Enterprises (CAE) over on their Facebook fan page. The first one (shown above) shows a completed prototype for their proposed “Attack on Mars” (AOM) spacesuit costume set and—if you look closely—an all-new HEADSCULPT for the figure itself! Fans who’ve grown tired of CAE’s previous “meh” headsculpt, will undoubtedly be thrilled by what they see in this pic. The second photo (below) shows proposed artwork for the costume set’s window-box packaging as created by illustrator, Joe Jusko (GREAT—as always).
The third and final pic (see below) is actually an advertising banner which touts the new AOM set and its contents stating, “pre-order info coming soon!” VERY exciting news all around. Forget all of those previous “little” CAE incarnations—it appears CAE and our favorite “multiple-personality superhero,” Captain Action, are finally getting ready for (another) BIG-TIME 1:6 scale comeback!
Bottom Line: We couldn’t be more thrilled by this news. But are we the only ones thinking how great this new spacesuit would look on OTHER 1:6 scale action figures as well? Say, oh, I don’t know, maybe something called, “GIjOE?” All you’d have to do is change the CA chest emblem to an AT one. Can you imagine an entire space-exploring Adventure Team clad in these silver spacesuits? Offer them in different colors, gold, bronze, etc., and we’d have to COLLECT ‘EM ALL! What a concept. It’d be like Major Matt Mason all over again, but this time in 1:6 scale. WOWZA!
