As I currently write this, the Virtuvian H.A.C.K.S. Kickstarter campaign sits at about $116,000 and is reaching towards the next stretch goal at $120,000. Once that next stretch goal is unlocked, hungry toy fans will get the Underworld Warrior and Sthenos (Medusa’s sister) unlocked!
I’ve mentioned both of these characters before, but as I was taking a close up look at Sthenos today, I noticed something quite interesting.
If you check the image out below, on the left you’ll see some concept art for an unused “Pythona” action figure, art by Ron Rudat. On the right, you’ll see the input art for Sthenos.
I gotta say that’s pretty awesome. It looks like (intentional or not) this Pythona art is reflected in a couple of cool ways with Sthenos. And of course, Sthenos has that amazing Cobra-themed command staff. Some real fun stuff in this one, even if you’re not a mythology fan. A little something for everyone.
So, think about supporting the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Kickstarter campaign. We’ll have to see what other Easter Eggs are hanging out there for us!
That Pythona concept art looks like a mash up of Princess Ardala from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and Princess Aura from Flash Gordon.
Was that originally a concept for what became Serpentor?
I forgot about that Decommissioned presentation. Anyone know which site may still have those images?
