NEWS FLASH: Designer Nick Pascale has just revealed the finalized space ship that took infant KAL-EL to EARTH from KRYPTON and also created a PHANTOM ZONE PROJECTOR that matches the one used in the comics! He also included the cast of Characters for the SUPERMAN FAMILY! Steve Lombard again - we just got new pictures from Jimmy of the improvements Superman made to his FORTRESS! NEWS FLASH! Steve Lombard here for GBS News! IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT OUR OWN JIMMY OLSEN IS VISITING THE "FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE" WITH HIS PAL SUPERMAN, WHAT THE BOTH MAY NOT BE AWARE OF IS BRAINIAC HAS BEEN SPOTTED LURKING OUTSIDE THE FORTRESS! MORE NEWS AS IT COMES IN! We return you to LOIS LANE'S PLANET DISH already in progress! (I also UPDATED the ship SUPERMAN came in as well as the bulletin board on his console!) The moment I saw the HOTH CAVE I thought with modifications it would make a great FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE for SUPERMAN! But LEGO hadn't come out with their SUPERHERO Line yet! Well they did I got another SUPERMAN and just the HOTH CAVE from ebay and I was on my way! I wanted to give you a good flavor of the fortress! I ordered white rock walls so this will be UPDATED! Now for a grand tour! I included the space ship SUPERMAN cam to Earth in (it needs the windshield (ordered), I included another KANDOR a bit different from the one LEX used to TRAP SUPERMAN in my other moc! It has the PHANTOM ZONE RAY, His console and revolving chair, I even have a KEY, he even has a powerful magnifying glass so visitors can see the citizens of KANDOR and can "fly"! Jimmy is ready with his camera to take all the FORTRESS has to offer and as you can see he even got carried to the FORTRESS by his PAL - S U P E R M A N!!!!!
About this creation
I need to take time to tell you just how strange it feels not to start this MOC with a tribute to the TRADE CENTER but I think we must now keep all in our hearts and prayers. On 9-11 I made a very simple MOC of the TRADES CENTER! It will be posted, I though it would be a great way of finishing my years tribute!
As you can see I have started this MOC with my reference pictures for your enjoyment!
Comic Book version of the vessel that carried KAL-EL to EARTH from KRYPTON!
My version - colors soon to change to match the red and blue ones of the original ship!
But I now have the silhouette of the vessel just right!
