Custom Eaglemoss Linda Park-West by Ciro Di Lella

Those who have been following my blog for awhile should be pretty familiar with the (now cancelled) Eaglemoss series of DC and Marvel Universe Lead collectibles. Originating in the United Kingdom, the series of mini-statues eventually made their way to France, Italy, Ireland, Hungary, South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia. Usually ranging in size from 3.5 inches to 4.5 inches the figurines had gathered quite a following before the abrupt cancellation of the line. The last official DC release will fortunately be a character I’ve been anxiously awaiting for quite some time; Bart Allen aka Kid Flash. Unfortunately it is unknown whether we can expect to see the “classic” version of Bart’s Kid Flash or the New 52 costume design. In any case this will be the last Flash-related Eaglemoss statue we can expect to see. Fortunately we have guys like Ciro Di Lella around. 

Now Ciro doesn’t necessarily create completely custom Eaglemoss figurines; he isn’t casting lead molds or anything. What he is doing is taking existing Eaglemoss figurines and then altering them by removing the paint using an acetone bath, molding and sculpting new clothing/props with clay and then finally painting it. Linda Park-West started out as a Classic Marvel Figurine collection, Psylocke. Talk about vision. 

While Ciro has an ever-growing gallery of different Eaglemoss custom figurines (Which can be viewed HERE) he also works in several other mediums including digital art, photo manipulations and traditional painting and drawing. His entire body of work can be seen HERE.

Ciro’s art can be seen on his Deviant Art and his Tumblr. He does take commissions but as I explained, they are not original figurines, simply modified existing Eaglemoss releases. No matter what they are excellent. Stay tuned for one more Flashy release from Ciro Di Lella. 

Thanks for reading!
