    Description

    Captain Action Aurora Model Kit Box Cover Illustration Original Art (Aurora, 1966). Here he is, Action Fans, the one and only Captain Action! Designed by Stan Weston, this mid-sixties action figure was the ultimate for young superhero fans, as they could dress him as Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Spider-Man, Green Hornet, even the Lone Ranger. This incredible piece of art, by an unknown artist (Norm Saunders, perhaps) graced the front of the original box, and features the good Captain posed for action and excitement, ready to square off against Dr. Evil. The art is painted in heavy gauche on thick illustration board, with an image area of approximately 7.5" x 20.25", and is in Very Good condition, with wear along the outside board edges, far from the actual image area.
