Stormtrooper and MUSCLE for 80's Toys Show

Here are my 2 pieces for the Autumn Society 80's Toys Art Show.

Troops of YesterdayThis painting is based off of the original crappily sculpted Stormtrooper action figure from the Star Wars line. I know the toy initially came out in 1977, but they re-packaged these through the 80's. Ever since I was 3, I was hooked on Star Wars, and after getting the Super Shogun Stormtooper recently, the old toys have been dancing though my head. It's a 2 color stencil, with the background made up of various colors of the black layer.
Terry Bull
This second piece was kind of last minute. I had this weird long canvas, and had the idea to do a toy based off M.U.S.C.L.E., which were these crazy pink Japanese wrestling characters. This guy is Terry Bull, who if I recall was the leader of the bad guys. This was also done with spray paint and stencils. The art show will go from July 2- Aug 4 @ Brave New Worlds in Philly. More info can be found on Facebook.
