Lee, wherever you are, dude, I love your work. Seriously. It’s just great.
Baron Karza of the Micronauts!
What if you dispensed with having to stick to the toy design, complete with goofy, clunky chest cannons and instead interpreted the character with a more practical look?
Karza always struck me as a kind of Mongolian warlord, a brutal tyrant who wasn’t afraid of (even relished) the idea of getting his hands dirty in the enforcement of his own dictatorial rule.
Keep the essential elements and interpret the rest as a menacing, jackbooted thug who dominates the (micro)cosmos with an iron fist!
Hall of Fame catcher Ernie Lombardi, played for Cincinnati in the early 1900’s. I’m using him for a project coming down the pike. What a mug!
