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.)

Girl kits have been discussed on a prevoius thread.Your choice of girl kits wish list is excellent.We can only hope that they will be issued one day.Personally,I prefer the comic book version of Wonder Woman and Supergirl as well.

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.

His sculptures are definitely fine work. ;)

This small little Vampi with resin replacement base and no bat sold on ebay for 86.00. Just in case your reading, Moebius:)

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.

Whoever sculpts the Atlier-It Japanese girls is phenomenal!

Well, she had a hand in keeping her figure in lovely shape, I'm sure.

She's built like a Southern girl wherever she's from.

I'd like to see the following too:

A green Orion girl from Star Trek
Angel from the Spawn Comics
Witchblade
Lea in bikini slave girl outfit from Star Wars

yep, if I can get my painting skills down, I could go for these.

" I think it's probably more sentimental value & the collectability that drives the price."
Yes, of course. It also drove the price and is bringing Big Frankie back. I agree that resin is probably better for girl kits. I also think a well done styrene Vampi would sell very well for M & M. Just my thoughts!!!

I'd buy a styrene Vampirella in a minute. I've already got two resin Vamps but I prefer building styrene kits any day... :thumbsup:

Me too. The rights should be easy.

Ask Amazing Figure Modeler's David Fisher for the best Vampi sculpt.

I'll ask the Sheena copyright holder about the model kit rights.
