MARIA ROBOT -
RARE RESIN MODEL DIORAMA -
CLASSIC SCI-FI If you collect classic cinematic dioramas, this is the only "Metropolis" model you'll ever need.
This handsome homage was produced 12 years ago by Amazing Figure Modeler magazine in tribute to the 1927 film, and was available for a very limited time. It features Rotwang's robotrix, Maria, showcased upon a machine gear display base that also contains the film's "Tower of Babel" skyline of futuristic New York.
The sensational sculpt is the work of Raven Hood, with a bit of help from his oh-so-talented father, Jack. The result is stunning, a well designed and crisply executed diorama that's a pleasure to view from any angle.
Hood's Metropolis model is 1/8 scale, measuring 11 1/2" tall x 8 1/2" wide x 8 1/2" deep when assembled. (Maria herself stands 9 1/2" tall.) The model is also slickly engineered for a simple, seamless build, being crisply cast as three pieces of resin that fit together effortlessly.
AFM's marvelous Metropolis sold out in a flash, and sadly, has been completely unavailable for over a decade. This one's complete, unbuilt, boxed, and ready to delight a deserving new owner.
Unlike so many model's the garage kit hobby has coughed-up over the years, Raven Hood's Metropolis tribute is nothing short of Amazing. Please note that this is an original garage kit, not a recast. Sassy's Satellite caters to the true kit collectors worldwide, always offering only original garage kits, never recast kits, whether unbuilt models or professionally assembled & finished items. We are ethically opposed to recasting within the hobby and only deal in authentic original garage kits.
