Every month, Loot Crate brings you awesome collectibles & gear you can’t find anywhere else! Take a look at how we bring your loot to life with a behind-the-scenes peek at the Captain Marvel 3D Comic Standee!
Naturally, we were all really excited about Captain Marvel hitting theaters and we wanted to bring our looters an item that showcased Carol Danvers, both as a superhero and as an incredible pilot. Enter Captain Marvel #5 (2012) with cover art by the legendary Terry & Rachel Dodson! This dynamic cover was begging for the 3D treatment so we started up sketching out a 3D cover. We turned our sketch into a 3D render and our partners at Marvel worked with us to get it just right, even allowing us to pull colors directly from the original cover.
As a nod to the new movie, the plane in the background was changed into a modern fighter jet (just like the one Carol flies). After a few more tweaks, our 3D Comic Standee was ready to go higher, further, faster all over your display shelf. We spoke with designer Steed Sun, Loot Crate’s VP of product development (previously featured in Behind the Crate’s interview series!) to get more details into how this item went from concept to reality.
