Something Vintage, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

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, 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.

  • I think what you said was actually very reasonable. But, consider this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not good., but suppose you added a title to possibly grab people’s attention?
