Girl kits

I think the success of garage Girl kits means it will also be successful mainstream. Just need to find the right characters.

Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter version?)
Vampirella
Red Sonja
Raquel Welch from 1,000,000 BC
Sheena (I can help with this as I know the copyright holder and he wants to license collectables. A new Sheena movie is in the works too.)

Best sculptor I've seen in this genre of kits has to be Mike Cusanelli. I'm sure his choice to sculpt original characters is in large part a result of his creativity, but licensing has to figure in there somewhere.

Marko, while it's true that little Vampirella kit draws big bucks, I think it's probably more sentimental value & the collectability that drives the price.

I have 2 other Vampi kits in resin that are way better representations of the character than that old Aurora model (much larger scales too). I think for female figure kits in particular, you have to recognize the limitations of the available mediums. Styrene isn't the best choice for this kind of kit. The pose is limited by the constraints of the tooling process. Resin allows for much greater range of movement in the pose and far fewer seams (both big advantages if you're modelling the female form).

I'm not saying styrene kits wouldn't sell, I just believe that between the two, the resin kits would always look better.

Just my 2 cents...

Has anyone done a really good Anne Francis resin kit? I know there is the Flintstone Altaira kit for the PL conversion but what about a standing-up, doing-something-else version? She was HOT in that Twilight Zone episode about the chick that gets stuck on the floor of the department store that doesn't exist and then gets turned back into a mannequin.

kuh-whack! kuh-whack!
