I can't help myself. I have to create crazy custom cards for many of the action figures in my collection, be they original 70s issues, my own customs, or recent re-releases of the older gems! Click below to enlarge these indelible images of my new displays for two Mego Bat-blasts-from-the-past, Batgirl and Catwoman!
|Above: I wanted to create a custom card for the figure's display, one that reflected|
the original toy graphics! So, I re-worked and re-figured the classic Carmine Infantino
art, and brought in familiar Mego card graphics and logos...
|Above: Although her outfit and base figure are original issue, I added |
the custom glove fins, and a repo cape and helmet!
|Above: The Batgirl custom card, featuring colossal Carmine Infantino art! |
The logo was whipped up by Don Heck, BG's early 70s artist!
|Above: The actual 1967 DETECTIVE COMICS cover from which the |
above Batgirl card image was lifted (with a ton of re-figuring)!
Art by Carmine Infantino!
|Above: Here is the recent (from Figures, Inc.) re-issue of the catty Catwoman! |
I wanted a card that had the feel of the original 70s Mego offerings, so...
Once I added the other Mego logos and graphics, a terrific display was born!

|Above: Here's the actual 1969 BATMAN comic cover from |
which the above capering Catwoman image was lifted!
Art by Neal Adams!
