BIG Chief Studios present the Captain Black Spectrum Edition Character Replica Figure. Featuring the most accurate character likenesses, authentically styled and tailored uniforms and faithfully replicated prop accessories.
Upon graduating from university, Conrad Turner, joined the British Air Force. As a young pilot Turner flew a sabotaged plane away from his base out over the Atlantic, where it exploded harmlessly. Ejecting moments before the explosion, Turner’s body was found charred almost beyond recognition. Surgeons worked for hours to save his life. Six months later, having recovered from his injuries, Turner accepted a posting to the World Army Airforce. Several years later, he transferred to the World Space Patrol and he became one of the WSP’s most famous officers. Highly praised by the government, he was one of the first men considered when Spectrum was being formed. Given the codename Captain Black, Turner was the obvious choice to lead an expedition to Mars. Discovering an alien city, Black mistook the intentions of the inhabitants – the Mysterons and believed they were hostile, destroying the city. Determined to be avenged for the unprovoked attack, the Mysterons took control of Conrad Turner to use as their own agent in the War of Nerves they declared against the Earth.

John Koenig was assigned command of Moonbase Alpha to oversee the launch of a deep-space probe and to investigate the outbreak of a mysterious virus. Arriving at Moonbase Alpha, Koenig discovered that the crisis was much worse with eleven men having died from an unknown condition.
Alpha's chief medical officer, doctor Helena Russell, believed that the men had died as a result of radiation exposure. Tests of the two nuclear waste disposal area came up negative, However, when Nuclear Disposal Area One suddenly flared up and exploded, the conclusion was that a new, previously unknown form of magnetic radiation had killed the astronauts.
Not only was everyone on Moonbase Alpha at risk from the radiation, but if Nuclear Disposal Area Two was also affected, the colossal amount of nuclear waste stored there would cause the greatest explosion in human history.
Koenig ordered the removal of the nuclear waste containers, dispersing them across a wide area of the Moon's surface, thus reducing the concentrated mass of nuclear waste and the risk of a catastrophic explosion. Unfortunately, Koenig’s measures were too late, and the nuclear waste violently exploded.The Moon was pushed out of orbit by the rocket motor-like thrust of the explosion and sent speeding from the solar system into the unexplored and unimaginable void of deep space.With the Moon's high velocity and rapidly increasing distance from Earth, Koenig made the hard decision to not attempt an evacuation. Instead remaining on Alpha, where the base's personnel could sustain themselves and search for another planet on which to settle.

From the stunningly life-like sculpt of Commander John Koenig to the expertly tailored uniform and faithfully replicated props in miniature, the figure will stand as the centrepiece in your Space 1999 collections.
