Heroes and villains (and those who fall somewhere in between), the Marvel Universe is jam-packed with them.For well over half a century Marvel has been weaving the tapestry of modern mythology, creating archetypes that have left a permanent impression on our imaginations. The One:12 Collective is honored to be able to play in their sand box and we have been busy taking advantage of the privilege.Here is a small sampling of what we’ve been up to. Enjoy!Here is a peek at DC’s scarlet speedster, the Flash. What you see here is some of our initial concept art, the digital sculpt work, and a shot from our 2016 One:12 Collective catalog.One of the things we focused on with the Flash was trying to design his shoes so they made sense for a runner. There’s more to reveal on this action figure and we’ll bring you up to—ahem—speed on that soon.
