Item Description
1986. 6" tall cream colored resin casting of Darkseid's head, a 2x4" trapdoor and a 5.5x6.25" resin cast jail cell gate. Exc. as created. Face has full detail while back is unfinished. From the unproduced "Tower Of Darkness" playset that was featured in the 1986 Toy Fair catalog and on 3rd Series figure cardbacks. Only a couple complete painted prototype playsets were produced for Toy Fair and photography use. These pre-production pieces are unheard of and truly the "Grail" for the Super Powers completist. Includes a copy of "Tomart's Action Figure Digest" issue 8 featuring the hand cast sample for Toy Fair shown on the cover. Truly a one of a kind item and unbelievably rare to have survived. From the archives of Toy Designer Rich Roland.
