Moebius' new kit, The Creature from the Black Lagoon (part # 971), has finally surfaced. It's a re-release of the old kit, but with new arms and no victim to carry. The arms are made of resin. You can see the pose of the new kit in the second photo, a scan of the bottom of the box. Animated Hobbies has these kits in stock, so order now!
Both the Death Dealer and Bat Wing kits arte in stock. But because of heavy pre-orders, all of the Death Dealers are spoken for. If you pre-ordered the Death Dealer, you can expect a message from me soon.
Wonderfest 2017 is just around the corner. It's held on June 3 & 4 at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport Expo Center. Animated Hobbies will be a vendor there again, as it has since 2010, so stop by and say hello. Please send me a message if you'd like a a kit(s) reserved for you.
Here's the Animated Hobbies table at Wonderfest 2016. I remembered everything except the sign!
Moebius Models told me that the Riddler model kit, part of the Batman 1966 series, is due to ship in just a few days, so Animated Hobbies should have them next week. That means that Riddler will be at Wonderfest, early next month. The Frank Frazetta Death Dealer kitis a few weeks behind. Moebius should have those ready to ship in the last few days of May or early June, so they will not be available for Wonderfest.
Earlier this month, Moebius Models published a whole bunch of photos from the Wondercon Convention in Anaheim, CA. Animated Hobbies shared those photos on it's Facebook page. Now Moebius has released anticipated cost (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) and availability (3rd or 4th Quarter of 2017) of those models as shown below.
Coming in June 2017 from Lindberg, as part of their Jolly Rogers series, Hex Marks the Spot. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price will be $23.99, part # LND224. More information as it becomes available.
The Riddler will be released soon from Moebius. This will make the fifth entry into the Moebius Batman 1966 series. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) will be $35.00 (I'm sure Animated Hobbies will charge less than that). Look for it to be released by the end of June, if not sooner. Christopher Franchi has again done the illustrations for the box art. One more thing, all of those question marks are decals which come supplied with the kit.
