    What's up everybody,this is Toi Ogunyoku, some of you might remember my kit the Mondoshawan. I have a new kit out now called Little Big Man, you can check it out on my new website. http://www.gunghoscifi.com/ I've sent terry webb a copy and hopefully by the next issue it will appear in the Coming soon section. The kits are available now from my website. Thanks Toi</TD></TR><TR><TD><HR></TD></TR></TABLE>

    This 1/8 th scale resin kit is approximately 8" tall and consists of 7 parts. Among the parts is an additional arm; the kit can be assembled with or without the key arm. In addition, the main body is hollow cast.

    The original sculpture has been retooled with all new molds and castings by Mark Brokaw.

    So now you get the option of "arms at the sides" like the original release, or "arm bent with key protruding from finger".

    Plus here's an article by somebody who built the original kit (PDF)

    Was this the old Boney Island Models kit? I'v got one, but haven't put the time into it yet. Will need some fair work to get to look like a show piece. It's cool news, and not too much more expensive than the original I think.
