Stan Winston's future is horrifying. No, not his career. The special effects guru who's brought the Predator creature, Jurassic Park dinosaurs and acid-dripping Alien to big-screen life is currently hard at work on TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES but it's his new Stan Winston Creatures toy line that will be scaring us for years to come.
Set in the year 2099, the new MUTANT EARTH action figure line takes place some five years after the great alien invasion. Earth has been decimated. Hordes of hideous mutants and invading aliens are fighting for domination of a decimated Earth. Humanity's last hope? Some reluctant hero named Trakk. And if Winston has his way, you'll be seeing a lot more of this guy.
"MUTANT EARTH's outset is to introduce to the world the next Spider-Man, the next Superman, the next Batman. It's Trakk. And Trakk is a monster hunter," says Winston. "He is an immortal who has been here since 100 A.D. and is in fact a reluctant hero, but has a mission. MUTANT EARTH happens to be post-apocalyptic, based on an alien invasion that has wiped out all but a few remaining human beings. And Trakk will have to come, eventually, to the rescue."
