New tooling gives modelers an opportunity to recreate classic sci-fi icons
SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 12/20/2012 – Round 2 is excited to announce the new Forbidden Planet C-57D flying saucer kit and The Robby the Robot Movie Poster Edition kit. “Forbidden Planet is a forerunner in the science fiction genre, and has been a popular subject for model building for years now,” said Senior Designer Jamie Hood. “These kits give seasoned modelers a chance to recreate classic characters from the film, and also help a younger generation learn more about what inspired the science fiction of today.”
The Robby the Robot Movie Poster Edition kit features 65% new tooling, updated legs and arms, a new rocky base to stand the model on, and all-new parts – sculpted to create a figure of the movie’s heroine, Altaira. The Robby kit will come with a full-color backdrop to display behind the model, effectively creating the movie’s poster in three dimensions. Robby will be molded in white plastic with some clear parts. Look for the kit in stores in 2013.
This completely redesigned C-57D Space Cruiser kit, includes all new tooling, and builds to a finished size of 10”, perfect for display! The ship can be built either flying or in a landing position. The parts will be injected in gray plastic, with a clear lower dome.
