Posted by in Harryhausen

I’ve always wanted to say, “release the Kraken” and actually have it come true. Since that is likely not going to happen the next best thing is this diorama by Joe Laudati and released by Monsters in Motion. The build was straightforward with no surprises. I had to break out those 0000 brushes to get at those tiny...

Apr 13, 15 Tales of Terror (1962)

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

Vincent Price mostly played characters in his films and not necessarily made-up monsters so it is a treat to get another version of the master in one of his interesting roles, that of Fortunato in the fourth of the “Corman-Poe” cycle of films, Tales of Terror. This sculpt, by Jeff Yagher and released by X-O Facto/Tower...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

As a young adolescent when I saw Attack of the 50 Foot Woman at the theater my hormones were indeed raging at the interesting possibilities of such an imposing female. Sculpted by Joe Laudati and released by Monsters in Motion this diorama masterfully depicts a key scene from the film when the giant star grabs her two-timing...

The robot that started it all is Maria from the classic 1926 silent film, Metropolis. This diorama produced by Amazing Figure Modeler showcases Maria with the Metropolis skyline and futuristic machinery. The paint scheme was very simple. After base coating Maria she was covered with a couple light coats of spray chrome. After base...

Feb 18, 15 The Black Scorpion (1957)

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

The Black Scorpion is an interesting film if for no other reason because the stop-motion animation was directed by Willis O’Brien, the original animator to the 1933 classic, King Kong. Among the animation effects is a battle sequence between the giant scorpions and giant worms. At the climax of the film the singular giant...

This model kit was a straightforward build with no particular problems. All paints were acrylics. Those “wings” of Luna needs some discussions. No where in the actual film does the Luna character appear wearing those wings so why are they there? During the last few minutes of the film, when the characters say (spoiler...

Gorgo (1961)

Jan 15, 15 Gorgo (1961)

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

For many, Gorgo is considered the poor man’s Godzilla. When Gorgo first hit the movie theaters during the early 1960s I was there in the audience enjoying the film. What is unusual about the plot for Gorgo is the monster and her baby both escape unharmed at the end of the film. The building of this diorama was straightforward...

Captive Wild Woman (1943)

Dec 12, 14 Captive Wild Woman (1943)

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

A guilty pleasure 1940s film. A mad scientist (John Carradine) makes a hormonal gland extract which transforms a gorilla into a woman. The Captive Wild Woman, played by Acquanetta, reverts from human form into a sort of throwback primate, neither ape nor human. This model by Alternate Images depicts the half-transformed beast. The...
