The Irredeemable Shag of Once Upon a Geek reminded me of this post of mine from Tuesday, January 29, 2008 concerning Sillof's "Gaslight Justice League." Inspired by the Victorian era Batman Elseworlds tale "Gotham by Gaslight," Sillof gave the JLA founders the steampunk treatment in toy form back in 2007. Late last year, Sillof returned to build on his achievement with a "Gotham Legion of Doom." I've been juggling a write-up of the Justice mini-series across five blogs behind the scenes, so these guys have been up in my brass grill for weeks now, and I'm especially associating Gorilla Grodd with J'Onn J'Onzz because of it. Sillof chose to pair the super-gorilla off with the Flash villain Captain Cold, but I prefer olive to scarlet, myself.
The genius intellect of the super villain known as Grodd is matched only by his dominating size. The figure comes equipped with goggles, gadgets and Victorian vest. The mechanical arm hints at his advanced scientific abilities.
That's a pretty big hint! Anyway, I'll be looking at these figures at several of my blogs today, so check 'em out:
