Thanks for showing this off Al - Atlantis has some nice UFO models too that we've had in Previews as well.

No problem, Tim! The Aurora fans are going to go crazy when they find out about this! If you can, please clarify with Atlantis that the eyes, teeth, & claws are going to be glow in the dark & that the box will have the Dave Cockrum painting.

Thanks!

Al

If it's as well-done as Atlantis' Zorro kit I'm in! Considering how difficult some of the re-issues by Polar Lights have been with fitment and trimming issues, Atlantis is a big improvement so far.

Thanks Tim! I also emailed Atlantis and let them know that Statue Marvels will be supporting their re-release of the Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Tyrannosaurus Rex all the way!

By the way, I was surprised to see that Andy Yancus is part of Atlantis Models. Wasn't he a colorist or letterer for Marvel from way back?

I picked him up from my comic shop this week. I gotta say that I felt like a 6 year old kid being presented with that box. WOW! To see Dave Cockrum's beautiful art up close again took me back to '74 or '75.
