Here’s our last set of vintage prototype photographs from the collection of Andrew Leung, Sacramento toy collector and proprietor at Toy Fusion . Shaya isn’t your normal three-eyed space siren. When in danger she is capable of changing forms from extra-terrestrial to humanoid. Her alien form gives off an intense heat which repels her enemies. Flip her around and she converts to her fiery form, making her more than the equal of any of the other Power Lords.
This week we’re featuring another one of the vintage prototype photographs from the collection of Andrew Leung, Sacramento toy collector and proprietor at the Toy Fusion, www.toyfusion.com. First is a photograph of a hand-painted Lord Power prototype, (circa 1982) which doesn’t seem to differ from the production figure to any great extent. The biggest difference may a lighter shade of brown used for the hair, although that may have something to do with the lighting. The red vein patterns on the chest seem to vary (which makes sense with hand painting) and the skin appears to be painted with glossier paint.
To celebrate the fact that Adam Power and Lord Power have been inseparable all these years, we’re borrowing a series of remarkable new photos of a vintage Adam Power toy taken by toy photographer extraordinaire Ed Speir IV. We thank Mr. Speir for being gracious enough to share them with us. For more of Mr. Speir’s amazing toy photography featuring new and vintage toys, check out his artistry (and more Power Lords photos) via this link to Mr. Speir’s flickr account. All of the photographs below, (except for the first one) are copyright Ed Speir IV.
