Moebius PROTEUS coming in 2017!

The official announcement hasn’t even been made yet, but here’s a little sneak peak at something visitors to the Moebius ComicCon booth will see starting tomorrow AM...



No determination has been made with regard to scale or price (the project is still in the early phases of development), but the model will feature a full interior along with the high level of accuracy and detail Moebius fans have come to expect.

You guys are THE FIRST to know. More details coming soon!

No doubt there will be after market figures if it does not come with them.

Great news!

I imagine it will be close in size/scale to the Flying Sub.
I am really looking forward to this one.

A 1/32 scale Proteus would be about 16 inches long -- the size of the old Lunar Models garage kit. That would be awesome!

However, I'd settle for 1/48 scale (the same as the Crow's Nest Models kit).

Oh. Oh my. I mean, OH BOY!!

(Y'all realize that whatever size they make it, it'll be "full scale" from some point of the shrinking process).

This is awesome! The Proteus is one of my grail kits- I have the Wilco kit but never finished fixing some of it's issues. When Crow's Nest released theirs I was in heaven, until my life prevented me from buying one. With Moebius in the game I can finally afford to get an accurate kit of this iconic craft!

Yeah John, they can officially say it will be in 1:1 scale.

As a side note, I decided to watch the movie again on Netflix.

Thanks for the tip, Carson! BTW, to this day, I still think your Lunar Models Proteus build remains one of the nicest I've ever seen!

Thanks Carson! Great news, indeed.

Let's start saving money, also, for the inevitable lighting, painting masks and photoetch kits.

We'll have enough time until the end of 2015 (I hope).
