Rejected! JLA Satellite Curio

I haven’t done one of these posts in awhile, but I’ve been rediscovering stuff I’ve been sent over the years that never made it to shelves and thought that it was high time that some of it been seen.

This little piece was sent to me by an anonymous soul who has dropped a few other bombshells on me in the past. It looks like it was going to be sort of a prop of the 70s JLA Satellite Headquarters that would have sculpted details and cutaway sections that lit up from inside like a shadowbox. I have no idea when this was supposed to be made, or how far along it got in the pipeline. I only know that I’ve never heard about it actually being solicited, and neither has Julius Marx. So at this point, I’m guessing it’s dead (I was sent this a year or so ago).

    Thanks for sharing, please do more..!

  • JLA Satellite prop…

    Last year AFI’s Toyotter (Jason Geyer) was sent some rather interesting blue prints by an anonymous reader. They appear to be for a never made, or still in the pipeline, JLA Satellite prop. It looks surprisingly large – a foot across and ta…
